Qi Gong is a combination of movement, breath techniques, postures + mindfulness meditation.
Or, as Dr. Greenapple likes to refer to it as “Acupuncture without needles”, and “Movement Meditation or Movement Medication”. Qi means life force, vital energy, breath”. Gong means “work and cultivation”. So, Qi Gong can be translated as “vital energy cultivation” or mastering your “vital energy”. It is the integration of all the above.
These simple exercises can have profound effects and literally can make medicine for no cost based on the fact we can alter, enhance or sedate some of the neurotransmitters and hormones responsible for both healing and causing disease states.
With these deliberate and intentful movement patterns, breath work, and present mindful awareness, we can enhance the immune system to help become more coherent and regulate the body’s sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems for better relaxation, healing, sleep, and mental acuity. Qi Gong can help clear toxic energy by purging the body of unhealthy and negative thoughts, emotions, and physical stagnation. It can improve circulation, relieve pain, increase energy and Qi Gong has been called “something that helps you to age radiantly”.
