Qi Gong for Health Vitality and Longevity
Do you want more energy, less stress, fewer aches and pains??
If you do then you're in the right place!
The answer to aging gracefully, feeling full of life and energy and reducing stress is Qi Gong! Qi Gong, also known as Chi Kung, or Chi Gong is literally translated as "energy work."
Qi is translated as "energy". Gong is translated as "work." Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes that all illness and disease is a result of blockages of energy or qi in the body. As these blockages get worse they start to 'stagnate' the blood. As the blood stops moving it starts creating symptoms of disease.
These symptoms can be fatigue, pain, headaches, irritability, weight gain, stress, digestive disorders and so on.
Qi Blockage causes Blood Stagnation which causes Disease &Illness
So, how can we move the blockages? Through Qi Gong, exercise and meditation!
Qi Gong can:
• increase energy
• prevent & decrease the effects of aging

There are many different styles of qi gong. Some are considered 'soft' while others are 'hard.' Soft qi gong is considered to be gentle on the body, easy on the joints, good for circulation, and overall health.
