What is QiGong?
Qi Gong (often spelt Chi Kung) is a powerful type of health exercise, which has been practised for centuries by millions of Chinese people. It is based on repetitions of very precise sets of movements, specifically designed to benefit health on many different levels.
Qi Gong is easy to learn and enjoyable to do. Even a few minutes of practise can have an invigorating and rejuvenating effect. Regular practice brings about a deep strengthening effect for the whole body and its various systems (nervous, digestive, respiratory, skeleton-muscular, hormonal, gynaecological, etc).
The aim of Qi Gong is to promote the movement of Qi/Chi (energy) in the body; this is done by opening certain gates and stretching and twisting energy channels. A key point in Qi Gong practice is relaxation and deep breathing, both of which are prerequisites to allow Qi to flow.
The benefits of QiGong
Qi Gong can have a powerful effect on mind, body and spirit. Reported benefits have included increased general health and well being, reduced levels of stress, and a brighter and more balanced outlook on life's possibilities.
The Qi Gong I teach is called Shibashi. Shibashi in Chinese means “18 movements” and is a system of Qigong developed by Master Lin Hou Sheng in the latter half of the Twentieth century. The movements are simple and easy to learn and build into a powerful, gentle form of exercise that takes only fifteen to twenty minutes to perform.
Qi Gong may be incorporated into a block of counselling / energy healing.
