Qigong (pronounced ‘chee gung’) is an ancient healing modality that has been practiced in China for thousands of years and today is an important part of the country’s healthcare system.
Qigong was developed thousands of years ago by many of the monks in China and is the basis from which today’s popular martial arts have been developed. With slow, flowing movements, deep breathing, and important visualizations qigong can enhance your life, physical health, and mental well being in ways never before experienced.
Qigong focuses on opening up the ‘chee’ or qi throughout the body. This qi is believed by qigong practitioners to be a vital life energy whose stagnation causes harmful blockages in the body resulting in illness, pain, and ultimately disease.
In this qigong DVD set you get one instructional DVD guiding you in the actual qigong movements and practices as well as a second qigong DVD that chronicles the history of this ancient healing modality and addresses scientific evidence regarding how qigong is successfully used for healing all over the world.
