What is Qigong
Qigong is a mind-body practice developed 5000 years ago in China and is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It uses physical movements, breathing exercises and meditation to harmonise the body, mind and spirit.
We have in our bodies, a network of energy Channels which traverse our torso, organs, limbs and head like an interconnected road network. It is in these channels that our bodies energy – our Ki-energy travels through.
The cause of disease
It is considered that disease or pain is a result of blockages in the Channels. If these Channels can be cleared and the qi flow harmonised, then good health can entail.
Qigong exercises are designed to clear the channels and help move stagnant energy. 10 minutes practice a day is enough to make positive changes to your life.
