Benefits your health and well-being
Through the centuries, Qigong practitioners believe that if the Qi or internal life force flows through our entire being like a river with no blockage, then we are fit and healthy. If there is a block, Qi becomes stagnant and prevents other parts of the body from being nourished then sickness will occur. The goal of Qigong is to correct the imbalances that have accumulated throughout a person’s lifetime.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, practicing Qigong can activate our internal energy, acupuncture points, meridians, and organ systems. The practice of Qigong helps to balance these energies: filling deficiencies and removing excess enhancing our self-healing power to achieve optimum health.
In China, Qigong is considered a “standard medical technique” and is prescribed to treat a wide variety of conditions which include: hypertension, coronary artery disease, peptic ulcers, chronic liver diseases, diabetes mellitus, obesity, menopause syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, insomnia, tumors and cancer, lower back and leg pain, cervical spondylosis, and myopia.
