QiGong ("Chee-Gong")

Feel all your tension melt away as you calm your mind and energize your body with the deep breathing, and slow, flowing movements of these ancient Chinese healing exercises.​

QiGong means "Energy Work", and is gentle system of exercises that stimulate and balance Qi (energy) in the body for health and a calm, focused spirit. (Like acupuncture without the needles!) 

 

The Chinese people have been using QiGong for centuries to heal and strengthen their bodies, and it is said to be about 5000 years old. Tai Chi evolved out of QiGong, a few thousand years later, for martial applications as people discovered that they could work with their internal energy to build power for fighting.  So, Tai Chi is actually a form of QiGong, and both have healing benefits as well as martial applications - although QiGong movements tend to be much more simple and easy for everyone to do.

 

More and more medical research is being done every year on the health benefits of QiGong, affirming what the Chinese people have known for thousands of years.
