What is Qi Gong?
Qi Gong (pronounced chee-gong) is a loose term for exercises performed to promote Health and Longevity, Heal Disease, and/or promote Spiritual or Martial attainment.
Qi means vital energy. The constant motion and circulation of qi both promotes and indicates balance within the physiology.
East Asian Medicine is based upon this theory, that a continual flow of qi achieves balance. Acupuncture is a practice that utilizes the flow of qi to restore equilibrium within the body and to help cure illness. A person may also engage in practices to increase and to more effectively control the flow of qi. These exercises and practices are commonly referred to as Qi Gong. ‘Gong’ means method. Qi Gong means energy method or exercises.
