Medical Qi Gong is the 5,000 year-old Taoist (natural) art and science of cultivating energy. “Qi” is vital energy and “Gong” is skill. Medical Qigong is a major component of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and is based on the energetic meridian system of the body. By using gentle movements, breathing techniques, and mental concentration, one can generate, circulate, strengthen, and cleanse the life force (Qi) within oneself. The practice of Qigong can lead to greater vitality and health, as well as a more peaceful state of mind.
