Your body is a self-healing organism. In fact, all living beings have the innate ability to heal themselves naturally. So why do we feel the need to turn to medicine so quickly when we become sick?
As a culture we have become greatly disconnected from and disharmonious with the natural world. As a result, we have to work extra hard to achieve and maintain harmony within our bodies and with our outer environment.
Qigong (pronounced “chee gung”) is a practice that supports us to come into both internal and external harmony. This ancient healing system originated in China and has been practiced for many thousands of years to cultivate life force, increase vitality and improve health on all levels.
When you consciously practice qigong, using breathing techniques, gentle movement, and meditation to cultivate your life energy (qi), you optimize your body’s ability to adapt and respond to the environment, and your body can function as the self-healing organism that it is designed to be.
