Qigong Overview

What is  Qigong? How is it different to Tai Chi? Why should one practice Qigong?

Historically, Qigong (pronounced Chee-gong)  was the first therapeutic order in Traditional Chinese Medicine.  

Qi (chi) translate to life-energy. It also means breath

Gong translate to work or cultivate

Loosely translated, Qigong is the art of cultivating, harmonising and enhancing our life force, also known as chi.

When practiced as an exercise regiment, Qigong can be defined as a series of precise and differentiated movements performed in a very slow and methodical manner.

Ultimately, the practice is a moving meditation incorporating acupressure, slow stretches, gentle flowing movements and stillness.

But Why practice Qigong?

As a society, we have so much luxury, so many machines to do our daily chores.  One would think that we could just enjoy it all on a daily basis.  Unfortunately, our lifestyles creates an enormous amount of stress in our lives.  More often than not, we ignore it, maybe take a pill or numb our brains (tv, alcohol…) to masks the symptoms. Most of us do this until something dramatic happens, often in the form of an illness. Modern science has shown that stress is the cause of many illnesses in the world.

Stress is the over stimulation of the Sympathetic Nervous System also known as the fight or flight response

Your Parasympathetic Nervous System, also known as the rest & digest response, plays a vital role in both physical and mental health through helping the body to calm down from stress reactions. 

Practicing Qigong calms the mind and the body, allowing the Parasympathetic Nervous System to do it’s job and keep the basic functions of your body working as they should.  This is a “no pill” approach to your health and wellbeing.
