"When your mind is detached, simple, quiet, then all things can exist in harmony, and
you can begin to perceive the subtle truth."
- Laozi, Hua Hu Ching
What is Qigong?
The word "Qigong" (Chi Kung) is a combination of two concepts:
Qi (pronounced "Chee") is air, breath, or the vital energy or life-force that flows through all things in the universe;
Gong (pronounced "Gung") is skill or achievement that is the result of dedicated and disciplined practice.
Qigong, therefore, means the skill of cultivating vital energy. It is a term used to refer to a wide range of mind-body practices. When fully embodied, Qigong integrates physical structure, movement, breathing techniques and focussed intention. More...
About Medical Qigong
Medical Qigong (Chinese Energetic Medicine) is the oldest branch of Chinese Medicine. It is a comprehensive system of health care that treats the client as a whole, and addresses the root cause of "dis-ease", rather than merely treating the symptoms. It works on a person's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels, and is highly effective at treating a wide range of conditions.
Through dedicated study and self-cultivation the Medical Qigong practitioner develops the ability to sense and manipulate energy. Based on a differential diagnosis that is rooted in Chinese medical theory, he or she makes use of Qi emission and/or the teaching of Medical Qigong exercises and meditations to restore health and well-being to the client.
