Qi-gong, often spelt Chi-Kung, is the study and practice of cultivating vital energy-life force through various techniques, including: breathing correction, postures, guidance of thought, visualization and meditation.
Practicing Qigong will assist to correct the imbalances that have accumulated during a person’s lifetime. Imbalances occur from negative emotions, stress, anger, anxiety, depression, grief, (negative emotions of the vital organs), trauma or injury, improper diet, excessive sexual activity, lack of exercise, etc. Imbalances or genetic dispositions are also acquired from our parents.
The Qi that regulates our entire body must flow unobstructed, like a river. If there is a blockage, Qi becomes stagnant and prevents other parts of the body from being nourished. If the Qi flows too rapidly, it causes degeneration or exhaustion of the internal organs. The practice of Qigong helps to balance these energies, filling deficiencies and removing excess.
Wai Dan – involves physical movement, breathing and meditation
Nei Dan – involves sitting meditation and guidance of thought or visualization
According to the traditional teachings of Qigong, beginners first learn physical movements coordinated with breathing techniques. They practice sets of exercises (similar to Tai Chi) until each movement or posture is perfected. Once they learn the form, the next step is to find the subtle flow or fluctuation of energy within the postures, movements, breathing patterns, and transitions. This is called moving meditation.
Among the exercises, there are many postures that are held for long periods of time. These postures are somewhat similar to those of yoga. They are practised to strengthen the limbs and increase energetic flow. These postures are called Jum Jong.
Still meditation focuses on becoming more focused with the breath, body, and mind.
Qigong uses combinations of these practices to promote health and improve digestion; boost the immune system; and relieve headaches, sinus congestion, aches and pain, and stress, and much more.
There are many forms and styles of Qigong, but, we are only concerned with the 2 below.
Qigong and Tai Chi are excellent forms of exercise to help balance a Western Society Life Style.

Qi means “breath” or “air” and is considered the “vital-life-force” or “life-force energy.” This vital-life-force penetrates and permeates everything in the universe.
Gong means “exercise” or “effort” and is the commitment an individual puts into any practice or skill that requires time, patience and dedication.
Qigong in Melbourne training lays emphasis on the cultivation, balance, strengthening and flow of Qi or vital energy of the Universe, through the body. This in turn increases blood circulation, stimulates the nervous system and endocrine glands, regulates the physiological functions of the vital organs and balances Yin and Yang energy.
Medical Qigong restores the vital energy expended throughout life, improving health and strengthening the body, promoting well being and longevity. Qigong stimulates change.
Through study, the individual develops the ability to manipulate Qi to promote self-healing, prevent disease, and increase longevity.
