(also spelled Chi Gong or Chi Kung) is a Chinese system of self-cultivation which dates back over 7,000 years. Ancient Qi Gong practitioners created such treasures of Chinese civilization as Acupuncture, Chinese traditional medicine, Kung Fu, Ta'i Chi Chu'an, the I Ching, and the Tao Teh Ching.
In general, it is a personal practice which integrates movement, Meditation, breath regulation, and visualization to stimulate the flow of qi, or vital life energy, along the body's Meridians. For example, one Qi Gong exercise may involve visualizing qi traveling from one body location to another. Qi Gong promotes optimum health of the whole person physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. It is an excellent tool for stress management and as a safe modified fitness exercise for cardiovascular, neuromuscular, arthritic, and other chronic immune disorders.
