And as it travels through your body, it makes your heart beat, it nourishes your tissue and organs, and it even contributes to the conscious activities of your mind.
The role of Qi — this energy that animates all life — in health, wellbeing and consciousness originated in the far east over 5,000 years ago. And with deep roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy and martial arts, we can call upon the practice of Qigong to release energy blockages and cultivate and balance our Qi.
(Qigong is pronounced "chee-Gong," with "Qi" = energy, and "Gong" = practice of.)
Awaken new sensation and vitality in your whole body through this Wisdom Healing Qigong practice called Chen Chi. Because many of us work many hours sitting at a computer in poor posture, our shoulders and back can absorb and hold onto tension and stress. This energy practice activates and opens the shoulder joints, chest and the Meridian channels. Follow along with me and allow the chi to continuously open, awaken and flow throughout your body.
