“If you want to be healthy
and live to 100, do Qigong…
Qigong reverses the aging process”
- Dr. Mehmet Oz on the Oprah Winfrey show
Practiced by 200 million people… Qigong, pronounced “chee gong,” and Tai Chi strengthen your body and build energy using breath, movement, and mental intent.
Qigong and Tai Chi are the self-care component of China’s age-old health care system. The word Qigong means “cultivating energy.” Qigong is practiced for health maintenance, self-healing and increasing vitality. Qigong enhances the body’s innate anti-aging capabilities. There are thousands of styles of Qigong practices including martial arts, medical, and religious/philosophy based forms. All styles have three things in common: physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused intention. Qigong methods are used to activate our body’s innate self-healing energy.

Qigong and Tai Chi combine movement, breath and focused mental intent to maximize one’s innate ability for self-healing, increased vitality, and inner calm. These practices quickly benefit one in mind, body and spirit.
Regular practice may reduce stress, build endurance, increase vitality, stimulate self-healing, and aid in warding off illness. I invite you to experience the positive benefits of breath, movement, and mental focus.
Tai chi is often described as “meditation in motion,” but it might as well be called “medication in motion.” This mind-body practice can help treat or prevent many age-related health problems, …it may be the perfect activity for the rest of your life.
