What Is QiGong?

The word QiGong (pronounced "chi gong") is a combination of two ideas: "Qi" means air, breath of life, or vital energy of the body, and "gong" means the skill of working with, or cultivating, self-discipline and achievement. The art of QiGong consists primarily of meditation, relaxation, physical movement, mind-body integration, and breathing exercises.

For thousands of years, millions of people have benefited from QiGong practice and believed that improving the function of Qi maintains health and heals disease.

In traditional Chinese medicine, good health is a result of a free flowing, well-balanced energy system. It is believed that regular practice of QiGong helps to cleanse the body of toxins, restores energy, reduces stress and anxiety, and helps individuals maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
