Qi Gong can help us to release what we no longer need to hold onto both physically and emotionally and can help us to restore and renew our precious energy.
Qi means energy.
Gong means skillful cultivation of something.
Qi Gong is a component of traditional Chinese medicine that combines movement, meditation, and regulation of breathing to enhance the flow of Qi (an ancient term given to what is believed to be vital energy) in the body.
Medical Qi Gong is an ancient form of Chinese energetic medicine and is one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), along with acupuncture, herbal medicine, and medical massage. As with the other branches of TCM, healing occurs through balancing Qi or electromagnetic energy which surrounds and pervades all living beings
Disruptions in the electromagnetic energy of the body occur throughout our lifetime as a result of poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, injuries, surgery, suppression of emotions, and aging. The goal of Qi Gong is to correct these bio-energetic imbalances and blockages. This enables the body to strengthen and regulate the internal organs, the nervous system and the immune system, relieve pain, regulate hormones, and strengthen and release deep-seated emotions and stress.
