Medical Qigong

The word Qigong is a combination of two ideas. Qi is the vital energy of the body, and Gong is the exercise or the skill of working with the Qi. It consists primarily of meditation (regulation of the mind), certain postures (regulation of the body), and breathing exercises (regulation of the breath).

 

Qigong therapy is also called medical Qigong. It contains a variety of forms in which Tai-Chi Chuan is the most renowned one. Generally, Qigong therapy can be divided into internal and external. Qigong practitioners may develop an awareness of Qi sensations in their bodies and use their mind, or intention, to guide the flow of Qi through the blocked meridians and restore balance. This self-controlled way is the internal Qigong. According to the postures or movements, it can be further classified the still Qigong and the dynamic Qigong.  When Qigong practitioners become sufficiently skilled, the internal qi can be “emitted” for the purpose of healing another person. This is the external Qigong therapy. In ancient times Qigong was called “the way of eliminating diseases and prolonging life”. Through numerous modern researches, it has been verified that Qigong has unique effects in treating many chronic and difficult diseases.
