Qigong and Tai Chi are the self-care component of China’s age-old health care system. The word Qigong means “cultivating energy.” Qigong is practiced for health maintenance, self-healing and increasing vitality. Qigong enhances the body’s innate anti-aging capabilities. There are thousands of styles of Qigong practices including martial arts, medical, and religious/philosophy based forms. All styles have three things in common: physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused intention. Qigong methods are used to activate our body’s innate self-healing energy, what we call “The Healer Within”.
Stress is a major contributor to ill-health.
“More than 60 percent of visits to physicians in the United States are due to stress-related problems, most of which are poorly treated by drugs, surgery, or other medical procedures” – Herbert Benson, MD
