Qigong is one of the four pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The other three being acupuncture, massage and herbal medicine. It is a combination of breathing, gentle exercise, self massage and moving meditation. It’s often called “The Art of Self Healing” because it helps with the flow of energy through meridian lines. When energy is flowing, the immune system functions normally and is more able to heal and look after itself. When energy is stuck and blocked, disease and other undesirable symptoms can manifest.
Here are some reflections to help you understand what Qigong can do for you
The beauty of the qigong approach is that you simply start from where you are. Tiny steps can still take you where you want to go; you just need to dedicate some of your time to yourself, which is a form of self-respect and love. - Dr. Daju Suzanne Friedman, Heal Yourself with Qigong
To be inflexible to the change around you is to live in fear. Qigong is a useful tool to improve your flexibility, both mental and physical...This is the essence of Qigong: a total absorption of the senses and spirit. With this absorption comes a rebalancing. - Garri Garripoli, Qigong: Essence of the Healing Dance
