Qi Gong

Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) means energy in Chinese. Gong (pronounced ‘gong’ or ‘kung’) means work. So Qigong means—energy work. Qigong is divided into two broad areas.
The first is special exercises that have been developed over thousands of years to help an individual develop their qi within them. There are many different sets of these exercises which each have there own purpose. These may involve meditations, gentle slow moving exercises, the use of certain sounds to focus the mind and influence the energy and so on. Central to most Qigong practices is unifying the mind and the body through use of breath. The second area is the use of this energy once it has been developed. Common uses are for healing and improving the health of others, or to allow athletes and martial artists to perform extraordinary feats of skill, strength and agility.
