Qi Gong-Therapeutic Exercises
Qi Gong as Therapeutic Exercises Are Good for the Body, Mind and Spirit
Current day psychologists agree that therapeutic exercises are good for the body, mind, and spirit. Not only do they focus on stretching out our muscles throughout the body, but they also help to move our internal organs that can assure they are free to function properly and not impaired due to adhesions. Moreover, therapeutic movements involve precise applications and body movements that are known to sharpen our cognitive skills, relax our minds, and open our creative energies allowing our inner genius to express itself. When one’s mind is relaxed, the central nervous system is better able to focus on optimal health, healing, and longevity.
Doctors of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Have Prescribed Qi Gong for Thousands of Years
Qi Gong is a form of therapeutic exercise that dates back thousands of years. It involves stretching, breathing, and chanting all in one. Its precise movements can be applied to nourish body, mind, and spirit allowing optimal health, healing, and longevity. Although qi gong can be compared to yoga and tai chi, it is more practical as it can be done anywhere such as in the office, on a plane, in an airport, or in the kitchen while your tea is brewing. You do not need special clothes or a mat. Most positions and stretches can be done while standing with your feet in the same position. Each position is precision focused on specific organs, tendons, tissues, bones, and nerves that may need healing or simply to maintain optimal performance and health.

Practicing qi gong has many neurological benefits as it assures good circulation to the brain, nerves, tissues, tendons and bones. In addition to bringing the life force of blood to all parts of the body, Qi Gong also promotes healthy lymphatic drainage.
