Qigong is a Chinese term derived from two words, Qi (meaning life energy) and Gong (meaning daily effort).
Qigong is a traditional Chinese mode of treatment in Cleveland used to maintain a person’s inner harmony and to promote self-healing. The therapy is designed to exercise both the mind and body. It has been used by the Chinese people for over five millennia, and today is slowly gaining popularity among Western countries. Actually, millions of people all over the world are using it to relieve and manage high blood pressure, pain and other common illnesses.
The healing art of Qigong uses synchronized breathing to maintain health and well-being, and bring the spirit, mind and body into harmony. It accomplishes this through guided visualization and specialized body movements.
In addition, the practice increases the flow of blood to the internal organs, including the endocrine glands, intestines, and brain. This increased blood flow causes more secretion of hormones that enhances a person’s sexual stamina and drive. It also improves digestion resulting in easy bowel movements and better detoxification of the body.
Scientists have demonstrated via brain scan that Qigong exercises bring about happiness as gleaned from a rise in brain activities in the brain’s left prefrontal lobes. The researchers concluded that the activities in this region of the brain reveals that people practicing qi gong are less angry, less upset, and a lot happier compared to people who do not practice qigong.
Qigong is the technique of using Chi or Qi for various aims and purposes such as for attaining happiness and for healing. It’s easy to learn it because each person is born with Chi and everyone has the ability to use it provided that they should do the exercises on a daily basis in order develop their Qi.
