Qigong is an everyday practice that Chinese people have used for thousands of years to achieve a more natural state of human life,as well as to develop further its unlimited potential.It is a form of Qi exercise based on the Chinese holistic understanding of the Universe and Human life, where ‘Heaven, Earth and Human are seen as inseparable one’. Similarly, the human being is seen as a microcosmos system where the mind, Qi and physical body are one’ as well.
QIGONG utilizes the body and mind together to improve the flow, quantity and quality of Qi in the body.
What is Qi? Everything in the universe can be seen as a form of Qi. One can say that Qi is the most fundamental element in the universe; the basic building block of everything. Qi is everywhere. It consists of energy, information and material and is constantly transforming from physical to non-physical form and vice versa. Qi is also the vital force of human life. Once Qi is healthy the body and mind will be in harmony. Zhineng Qigong is a modern Qigong system developed in the early 1980s by Professor Pang Ming. Zhineng Qigong combines scientific research and thousands of years of experience in a form of training, that improves the physica land mental capabilities of human beings. Zhineng Qigong exercises are safe to use and they gradually work on one’s general well-being, longevity and intelligence, as well as redeveloping our special capabilities.
How does Qigong work?Since Qi is the vital force of life, when Qi is unhealthy, the body cannot function properly and problems can start to develop. Our Qi can become unhealthy in the course of our lives by gradually being depleted and blocked. From Traditional Chinese Medicine point of view, most of the health issues first exhibit on qi-level. At this stage usually people are able to feel that something is not quite alright but it is hard to detect anything with medical equipment. If the qi imbalance is not dealt with, after a while it will manifest on physical level as well. Unhealthy Qi can also have negative effects on the mind. Qigong practice can clear blockages, replenish Qi and nourish the physical body and the mind. This means unhealthy gatherings of Qi (fromwhere most diseases and abnormal growths originate) can be transformed and cleared. Qigong practice helps the body to normalize and balance itself by activating the body’sown self-healing abilities. Qigong works on a very fundamental level and is therefore effective in dealing with health problems of all sorts.
What are the benefits of Qigong practice? Qigong Prevents and heals illness; Enhances health; Prolongs life; Develops the power of the mind and our inner wisdom. Qigong has been proven to work effectively on overall health as well as specific problems such as
