Qigong is Empowering

Qigong is Empowering

There are various forms and purposes of Qigong. When you learn Qigong, you learn self-healing. That is powerful! Therefore, Qigong is empowering. It gives us the tools to take charge of our health and wellness. Qigong lowers stress, enhances relaxation and energy (Qi) circulation in the body and energy exchange with the Universe. By its very nature, Qigong enhances life itself. Yes, that is a bold statement, but it is very true. If you want to change your life for the better, then learn and practice Qigong daily.

Qigong is also a choice. It is the choices that we make that shapes our lives. We often make a lot of choices subconsciously. That is, without explicit and conscious effort, we just go through the motions of life, day after day. This means that we often forgo our ability to make choices. Choosing Qigong ultimately brings us to the present moment with conscious awareness. This give us additional opportunities to make conscious choices that can benefit our health and well-being. That is the power of Qigong. Everyone can experience it and everyone has the capacity for experiencing it. Now, though it is powerful, I didn't say that it will magically wipe away all problems from your life. But what it can do is to give you another way to look at and deal with issues that show up in your life. It will expand your awareness. This is its greatest gift.

Qigong infuses healing wisdom into every cell of your being. When you become conscious and you learn how to connect to the Universal energy around you, all of your cells experience it just as your mind experiences it. Your mind and your attention is what makes Qigong powerful. As I have said before, "Healing starts in the mind".  So now it's your time to make a choice. If you want to be empowered, choose Qigong.

Qigong Benefits

If you are wonder what the benefits are for practicing Qigong, then you have come to the right place. Did you know that there are studies that suggest that between 70-90% of doctor's visits are stress related [1]. If that is true, then stress is an epidemic. Stress causes many issues in the body, including suppressing the immune system and digestion, hypertension, and many others. Also, U.S. Health care cost are about 17% of GDP or $2.7 trillion [2]. It's staggering. This means that it costs about $8,508 per year per capita [2]. Of course if you have any major issues that requires hospitalization, it could be much, much more. Now here's the good news. Qigong classes are low-cost and effective at reducing stress and improving your health, which will inevitably reduce medical costs.

What is Qigong?

Qigong is a general Chinese term for exercises, meditations and breathing techniques that are practiced daily for reducing stress, improving  and maintaining good health and promoting longevity. Qi, pronounced "chee", is the life force or energy within all living things. While Qi is actually in everything, living and non-living, this discussion will focus on the energy within humans. Gong refers to ones ability or skill. Thus, Qigong refers to one's Qi ability. A person that practices Qigong, develops the ability to work with and improve their own Qi, thus improving their health.

Qigong has been around for over three thousand years and  has its roots in Tradition Chinese Medicine (TCM). In fact, Qigong is often referred to as the Grandfather of TCM. There are more than 35,000 forms of Qigong around the world. According to the theory of TCM and Qigong, disease occurs in the human body when the Qi flow is disturbed (excess, deficient or blocked). The practice of Qigong will help to smooth out the flow of Qi in the body, thus restoring balance and improving one's health.

Qigong has gotten much attention over the last 20 years or so in the U.S. and has been featured on PBS documentaries and even more recently on more mainstream shows like the Dr Oz show. According to Dr. Mehmet Oz M.D., "If you want to be healthy and live to 100, do Qigong." One major benefit from practicing is stress reduction through relaxation. I invite you to explore Qigong with me and see for yourself what other benefits come from practicing Qigong.
