Introduction to Qigong
Qigong (Chi Kung) comes from the Chinese words "Qi" meaning "life force or vital energy" plus "Gong" meaning "practice" or "work." Pronounced like "CHEE GUNG", Qigong is a unique Chinese exercise system. Through individual effort, practitioners build up their health and prevent illness by combining the disciplines of the mind, body and the body's Qi (vital life force). Qigong draws on five main elements. It includes "regulating the body" through specific postures, "regulating the mind" through quiet, relaxation and concentration of one's mental activity, "regulating the breath", self-massage, and the movement of the limbs.
