What is Qi Gong?
A literal translation of the Chinese character Qi is air or breath. It is the energy that circulates within the body. Gong means energy and time, work or self-discipline. Gong is the term used for any study or training which requires a lot of energy and time, work or self-discipline. Thus Qigong is the training or study dealing with Qi, which takes a long time and a lot of effort to master. It is a method to build up Qi.
Strengthening and building the body’s Chi (Qi) has been the concept preoccupying seekers of health in China for centuries. In traditional Chinese medicine the flow of energy Qi along channels or meridians in the body is viewed as central to a person’s health and well being, with illness being attributed to restricted or blocked Qi flow within the body. This concept provides the basis for acupuncture and Qigong. To be able to build and direct the Qi flow in your body will enhance your health and reduce the chance of illness.
Qigong is an integral component of Chinese health systems that combines integrated physical movement, mental cultivation and regulated breathing. This activity is designed to guide and induce the free flow of energy Qi throughout the body, maintaining the harmony of Yin and Yang, which promotes health and a greater sense of well being.
Qigong increases vitality, impacts positively to improve medical conditions and in this way will improve and prolong the quality of life.
