What is Qigong?

Spring Forest Qigong
Qigong (pronounced Chee Gong) is an Ancient Art of Healing practiced in China for over 5000 years. Qi = life energy and Gong = the work/benefits acquired through practice. Therefore, Qigong means working with the life force energy.
Qigong works gently with your energy system to remove blocks and open up your channels, filling you with the balanced energies of the universe. By restoring the normal flow of Qi, the body naturally and innately returns to balance so we can remain healthy physically and spiritually.
Qigong promotes serenity & relaxation, peace, happiness, and joy. It wakes up the internal life force to balance and keep our Qi flowing freely. It has been known to enhance ones life in unexpected ways. Just 20 - 30 minutes of daily Qigong meditation can bring profound results into your life.

What is a Qigong session like?

Qigong feels wonderful, like a massage for the soul, accelerating the healing process. You leave feeling a little lighter with a smile on your face. Within 15 minutes, you feel relaxed. Qigong is primarily done in quietness. You sit fully clothed on a chair, in a relaxed or meditative state. I will stand a short distance from you and will use my hand to detect energy blockages. After that, many different hand motions will be used to pull in energy from the universe to clear the blockages. At times you may feel a gentle fanning from the sweeping of a hand near the body & movement of energy. Afterwards simple daily Qigong exercises and/or meditation techniques will be shown to obtain the benefits and relaxation from this ancient art.
