What Is Qigong?
Qigong is a type of Chinese martial art related to Tai Chi using a holistic system of slow exercise movements, concentration, controlled breathing, and meditation to promote health and spirituality.
Qigong Benefits & Healing
Similar to yoga, more and more doctors are promoting relaxation to reduce stress and promote healing. The benefits of Qigong are calming the mind and body then focus the energy on self-healing. Strengthening the muscles with low impact exercises prevent falls and gives balance to the body. The concentration of Qi gong therapy achieves a relaxed state of mind reducing stress.
“Mindful or meditative movement allows the body to do what it does best, which is to make its own medicine, a natural result of calming the mind, deepening the breath and relaxing the muscles during gentle movement. During the practices of qigong and tai chi, the biochemicals that support health and immune function increase, while the biochemicals that produce inflammation, pain and depression/anxiety are lessened.”
Professor Linda Larkey of Arizona State University
