Qi Gong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques & focused attention. Qi means natural life energy or vital energy that flows in the body and in nature. It is rooted in Acupuncture, a system of natural medicine that works with the flow of energy in the body through organs, structures & energy channels called meridians. It strengthens posture & relaxes the flow of energy through the spine. The body holds natural intelligence to harmonize & strengthen our Health. Tai Chi evolved from Qi Gong, it is dynamic, reflexive and nourishes balanced inner power. Stretching postures from Health Science & physiotherapy studies focus on the musculoskeletal structure. Giving attention to specific areas of the body, muscles and interconnections. The benefits of this are flexibility and body awareness. A good stretch nourishes blood flow & muscle function, allowing the muscles and overall structure grow in a relaxed strength in any training program or daily wellbeing care.
