Chi-Kung means “energy cultivation” or “working with the life energy” in Chinese. It is an ancient Chinese system of postures, exercises, breathing techniques, and meditations. Its technique is designed to improve and enhance the body’s qi. According to traditional Chinese philosophy, qi is the fundamental life energy responsible for health and vitality. It can be defined as the skill of enhancing your life energy through regular and sustained practice.
Chi-Kung uses gentle movements, deep breathing, and a meditative state of mind to keep vital energy or qi, flowing throughout the body. Disease and symptoms is a sign that qi has become obstructed. Medical Chi-Kung focuses on clearing these blockages and allowing energy to flow again naturally. Chi-Kung forms can be learned very quickly. They are perfect for people of all ages and fitness levels and they provide a powerful adjunct to any fitness program.
Chi-Kung is often categorized into three different types; these are health or medical Chi-Kung, martial Chi-Kung, and spiritual Chi-Kung. Medical Chi-Kung focuses on health preservation and restoration. This is the most popular of three categories. There are two types of medical Chi-Kung; Self-Healing Chi-Kung and External Chi-Kung.
