A brief introduction. Qìgōng (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient Chinese practice and a component of the Chinese Medical system that involves specific rhythmic physical movements, stillness – meditation – and purposeful controlled breathing. Although there are many different forms and styles of Qìgōng, they all use specific exercises or physical movements involving the Acupuncture Meridian System, the intention of the mind, and controlled breathing with the sole purpose of enhancing the flow and level of Qi (pronounced chee) in the body to prevent illnesses, promote healing, and optimal health, as well as cultivate spirituality and prompt happiness. The word Qìgōng has two characters; the first is Qì (chee) translated into “vital energy,” “breath,” “spirit,” and even “information,” being the vital energy, the most used one.
