Woman Teaching Qigong

Qigong for Health and Healing

Qigong is an energy healing practice from traditional Chinese medicine developed more than 5,000 years ago. The term Qi means energy that flows through the entire person – body, mind and spirit. Gentle movements stretch and strengthen muscles, improve balance and flexibility, and reduce inflammation in joints. This movement helps to improve the circulation of blood and oxygen throughout the body and helps to release toxins and deep seated emotions.
