Qi gong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention. The word Qi gong is made up of two Chinese words.  Qi is pronounced "chee" and translates to "life force or vital-energy" that flows through all things in the universe.  Qi gong is the cultivation of that energy.

Qi gong consists of gentle exercises that are composed of repetitive movements, often stretching the body, increasing fluid flow (blood, synovial joint fluid, lymph), and building awareness of how the body moves through space.

If I could pick only one health practice that maintains and improves health the most, it would be this practice.

Qi gong is a wonderful practice for anyone, of any age, with any health concern.  Qi gong is also wonderful for those interested in a very powerful way to maintain good health.  Doing these movements in nature can increase the healing response.
