What is Qigong?

The word, Qigong (Chee-gong), means the cultivation of Qi (Chee), or the power that drives behavior in things and sustains life. According to Chinese medicine, your health is restored and maintained when Qi flows through channels in your body without obstruction.


If you can learn to harness the power of Qi,

you can tap into your own self-healing potential.


Medical Qigong is a type of qigong that represents many forms that include coordinated breathing, stretching, movement and mindfulness exercises to cultivate health and vitality. Each form carries the power to address specific health conditions when practiced accurately and consistently over time.


Qigong isn’t a pill or a procedure.


It’s a process that addresses the root causes of illness. The qigong forms, alone, can’t make an impact without the philosophy and lifestyle lessons that guide them. As you start to learn qigong, you’ll soon understand why learning more than one form brings you closer to mastery of the foundational principles.
