Qigong is a mind-body exercise form that uses breathing, and meditative movement to increase energy and enable the body to heal itself. The exercise and healing techniques used were developed by Bodhidharma in ancient China at the Shaolin Temple. It is practiced for a variety of reasons and has countless health-related benefits. (Bodhidharma was a semi-legendary Buddhist monk who lived during the 5th or 6th century. He is traditionally credited as the transmitter of Chan Buddhism to China, and regarded as its first Chinese patriarch.According to a 17th century apocryphal story found in a manual called Yijin Jing, he began the physical training of the monks of Shaolin Monastery that led to the creation of Shaolin kungfu.) The art of Qigong (chi gung or chi kung) originated over 5,000 years ago and is based on the principles used in acupuncture and traditional Chinese Taoist medicine. It is a form of light exercise that involves repeated movements, practiced breathwork, stretching, and increasing fluid movement within the body. By doing this, qigong restores the flow of energy in the body and helps us become aware of the flow of our own life force energy, or chi. The power of Qigong has been demonstrated in China over thousands of years and has been seen by its tremendous health benefits for millions of people across the globe. Developing the life force energy, or chi is the main focus of Taoism. For most, the main benefits of qigong come from the relief or prevention it provides for a multitude of chronic health issues and concerns like diabetes, poor circulation, back pain, and even cancer.
