Qigong

Ancient Chinese Health Care

Qigong integrates physical postures that utilize slow, gentle movement, breathing techiniques and focused intention or imagery. The word Qigong is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and translates to the life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe. The second word, gong, pronounced gung, means cultivating energy.

This is an ancient practice for health maintenance, healing and increased vitality. The gentle, rhythmic movements of Qigong reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality, and enhance the immune system. It has also been found to improve cardio-vascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic and digestive functions. Those who maintain a consistent practice of Qigong find that it helps in regaining a youthful vitality, even into old age, as well as speed recovery from illness. Additional scientific research confirms that Qigong reduces hypertension and incidence of falling in the aged population with long-term effects in re-establishing the body/mind/soul connection.
