When I was in Beijing last year I bought a slim book by Huang Runtain from a traditional-Chinese medicine family. The text reads very much like the oral tradition as I learned things when I was in Singapore 30 years ago.
There are meditations described in the text as RECIPES specifically for - dizziness & lethargy, backache, patients with chronic & puzzling diseases and many other conditions. As the text is obviously translated directly from Chinese there are some cultural assumptions that a Westerner would need to discuss with a Chinese friend to understand. By combining activity with tranquillity "to ward off sickness & improve the functions of the heart system & the respiratory organs" the recipe is "WALKING FAST AS THE WIND & SITTING STABLE AS A BELL." Food cures are also important.
