Originating in ancient China, Qigong forms part of traditional Chinese medicine along with herbal medicine, acupuncture and Tui Na (therapeutic massage). ‘Qi’ means ‘energy’; ‘Gong’ means ‘practice’, ‘improve’ or ‘balance’. When combined, ‘Qigong’ means ‘to improve and balance bio-energy’ through uniquely designed bodywork or workout.
The therapeutic benefits of Qigong exercise have been known for centuries. The ancient healing art is supported with overwhelming research evidence on its efficacy in improving health, well-being and quality of life. Numerous randomized control trials demonstrated that practice of Qigong exercise significantly reduced stress and anxiety, and improved musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary and immune health, physical function, self-efficacy and quality of life.
