The Importance of Qi in Life

The practicing of Qigong helps to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of how we store, move, and use Qi to enhance our health and well-being. You can feel this life energy for yourself by rubbing your hands together until it becomes really hot, this is the Qi, and then placing both hands on your face. This energy needs to be in harmony for us to feel alive and well. By harmony I mean balance of the Yin and Yang, between the different organs of our own body, and between our body and the environment in which we live.

Qigong for Healing

Qigong is an ancient Chinese health-care modality that has fascinated people throughout the millennia. Based on the fundamental principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qigong is a system that teaches us to understand Qi, our bioelectric life force, and use it to heal ourselves and others. Qigong is a healing art that combines movement and meditation to keep the smooth flowing of Qi. Visualizations are used to enhance the connection between the mind and body for healing.

Qi is the name for the natural bioelectric currents that run through our meridians. It is a way of mind expansion, meditation, visualization, and spiritual cultivation for health and vitality.

Qigong can be practiced by oneself, or practiced on by a Qigong Master. If employed by a Qigong Master, the Master will help the patient's energy balance back to its healthy state by using his/her own Qi, which has been mastered for several years, to stimulate the patient's Qi flow freely for 24 hours a day. Once the Qi is applied to the body, the patient's Qi gets a burst of helpful healing Qi to disseminate stagnant harmful Qi. " The healer must always have calm and peace in the heart. It is a magnetic field, and can influence others with peace. Most importantly, the patient must believe in the hands of the Qigong Master, and be able to relax" (Lin Chi, THE EDGE, 1993). Regular practice of Qigong can prevent disease, treat current illnesses, promote youthfulness and longevity, expand spiritual knowledge, and have peace of mind.

As medicine, qigong is based on precepts similar to those of acupuncture, a procedure that has often surprised Western experts with its successes. Only two decades ago, qigong was denounced by the Chinese government as witchcraft. The government's antagonism let up in 1978, after the Cultural Revolution of the late '60s and early '70s was declared over. Doctors and intellectuals argued that qigong, though unscientific by Western standards, could help sick people. Now the practice is sweeping China again.
