What is Qigong?
Qigong is a healing technique which has been in existence since the ancient Chinese, it involves meditation, controlled breathing, and movement exercises. It is alternatively spelled chi gung or chi kung. This technique stretches the body, increases fluid movement (blood, synovial and lymph) and builds awareness of how the body moves through space.
In Chinese, Qi is a Chinese culture which means spirit, information, or breath. While the word “gong” means mastery or cultivation. So, Qigong can be translated to mean “vital energy cultivation” or “mastery of your energy”. When practicing qigong, you learn two qigong exercise movements or flows. The internal movements which are called “internal power” or “neigong” in china.
The internal flow involves breathing and mediation to promote spirituality and health, these movements makes qigong a superior health and wellness practice. Qigong external movements or flows are more vigorous and include martial arts exercises like Tai chi. Tai chi is often referred to as a form of qigong because it is a widely practiced mind-body exercise which cultivates, moves, and helps manage ones breathing.
