Qigong is a gentle kind of concentrated movement intended to stimulate and strengthen a living harmony. Those, who practice Qigong regularly, experience the feeling of being alive in their bodies.
The concentrated, harmonic movement acts as a keynote, bringing the whole person - his body and his soul - to resonate. Harmony is the source of joie de vivre, in harmony one finds peace and relaxation, harmony strengthens the body and mind. So harmony is the basis for health.
The word "Qigong" consists of two terms:
Qi is the life force and energy and Gong the regular, quiet and concentrated practice, so the mastery of qi. In China, Qigong ("exercise of life force", "control of body energy") has been an indispensable part of TCM for millennia. Over the years a variety of styles of qigong developed. Some serve as a basis for martial arts, others for the preservation of health, but the main goal of all styles is the harmony of physical and mental well-being.
Ba-Duan-Jin Qigong - The "Eight Treasures of Qigong"
