Qi Gong is an ancient form of energy cultivation and circulation
Qi Gong is an ancient art, which is thought to have given birth to many of the Chinese sciences, such as Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Herbalism.
The word Qi Gong simply translates as “Energy Work”. Qi Gong is a way to cultivate and circulate internal energy.
Qi Gong is similar to Yoga and Tai Chi in that it involves postures, movements, breathing and meditation for healing and health promotion.
Qi Gong is unique in that it is more energy and movement focused than most forms of Yoga, and does not involve holding difficult postures. Qi Gong science is the foundation from which Tai Chi was developed, the focus is on fundamental well-being and self-healing.
At last count, there were over 450 forms of Qi Gong being taught in China. It is generally said that it has five major schools, Medical, Martial arts, Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian. Another way Qi Gong is classified is into Active and Passive Qi Gong – the latter being mainly still postures emphasising meditation.
