Medical Qigong by Energy Medicine Center
Medical Qigong is an ancient form of Chinese medicine and is one of the four main branches. Medical Qigong healing occurs through the balancing of "Qi" or energy. Disruptions in the is energy of the body occur throughout our lifetimes as a result of poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, injuries, surgery, suppression of emotions and aging. The goal of Qigong is to correct the blockages of energy. Qigong helps the body regulate and strengthen the internal organs, nervous system and immune system, alleviate pain, improve hormone function and to address stress and release deep seated emotions.
Qigong creates an awareness of and influences dimensions of our being that are not a part of traditional exercise programs. The gentle, rhythmic movements of Qigong reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality, improve flexibility and balance, and enhance the immune system. It has also been found to improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic and digestive functions. Qigong’s great appeal is that anyone can benefit, regardless of ability, age, belief system, or life circumstances. The slow, gentle movements of most Qigong forms can be easily adapted, even for the physically challenged and can be practiced by all age groups.
