Benefits of Medical QiGong:
The Mind controls Chi and Chi controls blood. Qi Gong focus on the breathing which detoxifies the blood. 75% of all toxins are released through exhalation.
QIGong is effective in decreasing acute and chronic inflammation, calming the mind, and healing the body.
Where there is inflammation, there is cellular damage.
From an Oriental Medicine perspective, when there is chronic inflammation we have excess stagnation. We learn in Oriental Medicine that where there is abundant chi flow, there is health and vitality and where there is stagnation of chi flow, there will be dis-ease.
