What is Qigong?
Qigong is a self-healing art that combines movement and meditation. Visualizations are employed to enhance the mind/body connection and assist healing. Regular practice of qigong can: prevent and treat illness, reduce stress - establish balance and integrate mind/body/spirit - bring peace.
Qigong (also spelled Ch'i Kung) is a powerful system of healing and energy medicine from China. It is the art and science of using breathing techniques, gentle movement, and meditation to cleanse, strengthen, and circulate the life energy (qi). Qigong practice leads to better health and vitality and a tranquil state of mind. In the past, qigong was also called nei gong (inner work) and dao yin (guiding energy).

Our pilot results indicated that the Taoist Tai Chi form of exercise was far superior to the traditional American physical therapy intervention to increase strength and enhance balance in older persons.
