Meaning of Qigong

“Practicing Qigong brings about an inner peace,
a healthy and invigorated body and a calm mind,
capable of dealing with daily stresses and illnesses.

What is Qigong?

It is a combination of slow movement sequences,
a conscious breath control and a pleasant presence in one’s body.

Qigong is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
These, thousands of years old, meditative exercise sequences
are intended to increase the energy of life (Qi)
and to harmonize body, mind and soul.

In a state of relaxation and connected with the external Qi source
the whole body is gently moving and is restored to its inner order.
The mind comes into rest.
Thus one feels more and more the free flow of life energy.

Qigong and the immune system

“When healthy Qi is stored inside,
no pathogen* can make us ill.”

This is one of the most important statements of Chinese Medicine.
*Pathogen means, according to the Dictionary of Biology:
“Any disease-causing microorganism. Pathogens include viruses and many bacteria, fungi, and protists.”
