Qigong is a mind/body, self-care practice from China. It coordinates gentle movement, relaxed breathing and meditation with self-massage to energize the body. Qigong translates as breath work or energy work – cultivating energy and storing it for body rejuvenation.
The best medicine is already in us: A study from the Journal of Chinese Medicine has found that including a regular Qigong practice in your life helps to both calm and energize the body. Promoting the balance of energy-in and energy-out combined with building inner health and strength is the foundation of a Qigong practice. In addition to providing exercise, Qigong helps to release physical, psychological and emotional stress. These practices modify and accelerate the body’s own self-regulating physiological and bioenergetic mechanisms. Qigong is your best health insurance.
