Qigong is an ancient Chinese health-care system which is over 5,000 years old. It is a system practiced for health maintenance, healing, increasing vitality, and spiritual cultivation.
In order to understand how Qigong achieves it’s effects, imagine a garden hose – water flows freely if there are no obstructions in the hose. If there is a kink or constriction in the hose, water (Qi) doesn’t flow. You get excess (Qi) on one side of the kink and deficiency on the other. The stretching, movements and breathing of Qigong elongate the hose and release the blockages caused by trauma, stress, poor diet, medications, hereditary conditions, environmental factors or excessive emotional issues. This balanced even flow of energy or Qi assures the health of your organs, nerves, glands and cells by stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Qigong synchronizes chakras, connects to acupoints and is both a science and an art.
The visualization, breathing techniques, and physical postures of Qigong promote relaxation and reenergize the body.
