Qi Gong, translated as "energy cultivation", is a practice that is over 5000 years old. “Qi” or vital life energy is what animates all life. It is the fabric that weaves our connection to our environment, to others and, to ourselves. Through breathing exercises, gentle movements, and meditation, Qi Gong builds internal balance, harmonizing the organs, emotions, and body systems. Medical Qi Gong practitioners harness this energy to perform healing treatments on their patients, accessing the subtle layers of the body to encourage self-regulation and homeostasis.
