Qigong is a health cultivation practice originating from ancient China practised to promote vitality, emotional and mental balance and deeper awareness of oneself and of Life.
Qigong commonly uses breath, movement, visualisation & meditation to cultivate, transform and move qi (energy) within the body.
The Self Healing Qigong Exercise is an active form of qigong that utilises movement and visualisation to actively engage with and balance the energy “Qi” of your body.
It aids in the elimination of pathogens, removal of energy blockages and promotes a more balanced and harmonious flow of energy leading to increased vitality, a strengthened immune system and overall health. It has been known to help with the following conditions: chronic fatigue, liver disorders, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, pain, hypertension, depression, insomnia, emotional stress, digestive issues.
