QiGong was designed for health, spiritual enlightenment and longevity.
Qigong is a Chinese way of seeking perfection both physically and spiritually by cultivating and harmonising the subtle energy through systematic meditation and exercises, thereby strengthening health, curing illness, prolonging life, improving mental health and achieving high levels of self-realization and enlightenment. It is a way to connect with the Universe. It helps our awareness. It gives us balance and an ability to protect ourselves.
Qigong (alternatively spelled chi gung or chi kung) is a form of gentle exercise composed of movements that are repeated a number of times, often stretching the body, increasing fluid movement (blood, synovial and lymph) and building awareness of how the body moves through space.
One element of Qigong is tapping on acupuncture points in the body to direct energy to specific areas. This exercise involves the point just below the knees and outside of the tibia, known in Chinese medicine as the “walk-three-miles point,” because fatigued monks routinely stimulated it to gain the stamina to walk another three miles.
Chinese medicine views the body as a hydraulic system that tends to become sluggish and stagnant, says Du Cane. This physically demanding exercise is designed to move energy through the body. It also helps improve leg strength, relaxes the hip and pelvic region, prevents lower-back pain, and is believed to improve kidney function. It’s often performed facing a wall to keep your weight back on your heels and discourage leaning forward.
Qigong involves using the hands to direct energy, often in a spiral pattern. Spirals are found in both nature and in the body’s fascia, or connective tissue. By practicing spiral movements, you make the fascia more flexible. The gentle spiralling hand and wrist motions in this exercise are intended to help you relax out of tension and move in a more fluid manner. It also develops energy, power and well-being.

- Well-being and improved health. Qigong emphasizes the whole body, whole system health. While it is true that Qigong will often cure specific ills, this is not the primary reason for practice. It is not only a matter of adding years to your life, but life to your years.
- Clear and tranquil mind. When the mind is at peace, the whole universe seems at peace. World peace begins with you; it is your responsibility to find a peaceful heart and mind. Then you can heal and transform others just through your presence. If you have a tranquil mind, you will make better decisions and have the skill to know when act and when to be still.
- Deeper, more restorative sleep. Qigong will help you find the deep relaxation and mental quiet necessary for sleep.
- Increased energy, including sexual vitality and fertility. Qigong people have more energy; it can reverse energy and restore youthfulness.
- Comfortable warmth. Qigong is great for cold hands and feet. Circulation improves, and the body generates more internal warmth when it is cold.
- Clear skin. The skin, like the intestines, is an organ of elimination. According to Chinese medicine, as your Qigong improves, your body eliminates toxins, and the skin becomes clear.
- Happy attitude. There is an old Tibetan saying, “You can tell a Yogi by his or her laugh.” Correct and moderate qigong practice usually creates an optimistic and joyous disposition.
- More efficient metabolism. Digestion improves, and hair and nails grow more quickly.
- Greater physiological control. This means that aspects of the body that were imbalanced or out of control begin to normalize, for example, breathing rate, heart rate, blood pressure, hormone levels, and states of chronic inflammation or depletion.
- Bright eyes. The qigong master’s eyes are said to glow in the dark, like a cat’s. The eyes also appear bright because the spirit and soul are luminous and the heart is open.
- Intuition and creativity. Intuition and creativity generate each other and come from the same source, an awakened brain and being, an ability to think with the gut, to feel with the mind.
- Spiritual effects. Advancement in qigong is often accompanied by a variety of spiritual experiences. For example, synchronicity, meaningful coincidences, become more common. When the qi is abundant, clear, and flowing, the senses perceive and are permeated by a sweetness.
