What Is Qigong?

ChinaQigong is a holistic exercise that originated thousands of years ago in China as a means of healing the body, mind, emotions and developing the entire human potential.

Practicing Qigong daily creates a healthy mind, body and spirit by cultivating energy called Qi (pronounced "chee").  Qi is the medium that links the mind, body and spirit into an integrated functional system.  When the flow of Qi in the body is plentiful, strong and balanced, so is the ability to heal and stay healthy.

Initially only people in China's martial arts, medicine and religious circles practiced and knew about Qigong's healing potential. It has only been in the last 50 or so years that Qigong has become available to the general population in China.  Since then it has also become known and practiced all over the world.

There are numerous forms of Qigong.  Zhineng Qigong was founded by Dr. Pang He Ming.  With training in eastern and western medicine, Dr. Pang studied various forms of Qigong and martial arts throughout China before he created this easily learned form of self healing Qigong. In Zhineng Qigong students and practitioners use the power of the mind in unison with postures and movements of the body.  The practice of Zhineng Qigong utilizes both internal and external Qi; this allows the regular practice of Zhineng Qigong to be very powerful yet safe for solo or group practice.

Case studies with Zhineng Qigong have been done in China and elsewhere indicating positive health results by individuals with a variety of illnesses.  With mounting evidence that mind body approaches to health care are both medically and cost effective for many conditions, Qigong is becoming part of mainstream medicine throughout the world.
