Ancient knowledge about health
Qigong is the oldest form of Chinese medicine and probably the basis upon which Chinese medicine first developed. It combines a series of movements and/or postures with focused meditation.
The long history of qigong has led to a wide variety of forms, some more meditational, others more physical. Zhineng Qigong works with both mind and body but sees the mind as paramount.
Zhineng Qigong uses both body and mind to enhance health and heal illness. The practice is done in a meditative state of deep relaxation. Each Method or exercise is part of a system of practice, giving individuals flexibility and choice. People can choose what to practise and for how long, to cure illness or simply to remain in good health.
Zhineng Qigong methods vary from challenging movement sequences to seated meditations. The integrated series of methods and exercises work on all aspects of the body including the internal organs, as well as on the mind/spirit (yishi/shen). Depending on each individual’s health problems or personal preferences, it is possible to focus on particular methods or parts of a method.
