Qi Gong is a comprehensive approach to wellness rooted in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts. It is one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine, along with acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and massage.
Qi Gong involves gentle movements and rhythmic breathing intended to stimulate and coordinate the flow of Qi throughout the body. When Qi moves freely, circulating naturally through the organs, tissues, and emotional centers, many diseases, disorders and states of psychological discontentment are alleviated.
Qi Gong’s proven and powerful means of integrating the mind, the breath and the body help promote a living state of balance and harmony with nature and self. Qi Gong teaches the student how to embody and re-align with the greater harmonies of the natural world, thus cultivating health and vitality through the body’s ecosystems. Its simple, accessible techniques of postural alignment, proper breathing, dynamic movement, and meditative awareness guide the practitioner to re-connect with the Qi.
