We live in a field of qi, “vital breath” or “life energy. ” Nevertheless, like a fish in water or a bird in flight, we are not aware of the medium that helps us. Qi Gong means “working with qi.” It will be the ancient Chinese art and science to become aware of this existence energy and learning tips on how to control its flow by way of a precise choreography of healthy posture, movement, respiratory technique, as well as meditation. Like biofeedback, Qi Gong instructs psychophysiological self-regulation; the student becomes conscious of bodily functions conventionally considered involuntary– blood pressure, the respiratory system rate, even the blood circulation and nutrients to central organs– and learns to revive a healthier balance. Even so, unlike biofeedback, no technical devices are expected. Qi Gong is one of the very cost-effective self-healing methods on this planet. The only investment required is time, a half-hour to an hour each day; the actual dividends of better well being, increased vitality, and peaceful alertness accrue daily and are cumulative.
