You already have the precious mixture that will make you well. Use it. ~ Rumi
Qigong (Chee GUNG)
For over 5,000 years, the Chinese Taoists have studied the secrets to health and longevity. Today, Medical Qigong (sometimes referred to as "Chinese Yoga") is the culmination of this ancestral wisdom. Through the variety of stretches and movement, combined with breathing and mind exercises, the body is opened to receive and exchange Qi (Energy) with our external environment, balancing and invigorating the body's energies to support its innate wisdom to heal itself.
