So what does Qigong do?

April 4, 2020

I’ve had a lot of people ask me, what does Qigong do.

I did some thinking on this today while walking along the river and came up with this.

Our body works on a set of integrated systems.

  • Cardiovascular
  • Circulatory
  • Lymphatic
  • Filtration
  • Energetic
  • Nervous and Cerebral
  • Muscular
  • Skeletal
  • Reproductive
  • Digestive
  • etc

Qigong, through mental concentration, focus and movement with intention and relaxation, works to improve the functioning and health of each of the bodies systems both on an individual basis and integrated in the body as a whole.

Qigong you see, is a mind – body way of moving, thinking and being that stretches us internally and externally.  Opening channels as they relax to allow blood and energy to flow.

It relaxed the bodies tissues allowing joints to open tissue to lengthen and healing to happen as the parasympathetic system takes, taking us out of flight or fight mode.

The relaxation of breathing, redirection of thought and mental energy calms the body and mind, eases tensions and creates peace in both our movement and stillness.

It makes us feel better, it helps our bodies be better.

Qigong Works
