Qigong (Chi Kung) meaning "to work or exercise the vital life force (qi/chi)" or "to acquire chi (the vital life force)" is the 4000 year old Chinese system of self-healing exercises and deep breathing techniques that emerge from the ancient understanding of "qi/chi (ki in Japan)." Once the secret knowledge of martial artists and the very wealthy of China, today Qigong is the primary health system of China and is practiced by many millions of Chinese who believe if you have to go to a doctor, your medicine has already failed.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine and the martial arts, the nurturing of qi is directly related to strength, vitality, and healing; the loss of qi to illness, aging, and death. As those in the Orient understand it, we age, we become ill, we die as we lose our primary qi—our life force energy. But learning to replace the qi/chi in our bodies by practicing Qigong daily is something anyone can do, something as simple as taking a beginning three hour course that introduces powerful, non-athletic exercises designed to "work the qi." Qigong is easy to learn, fun to do, powerful in its healing effects. No athleticism is required; even those confined to a wheel chair are able to practice qigong.
