What is Qigong?

The exercises typical of this well known Chinese discipline can reduce stress and anxiety, while improving overall physical fitness, balance, and flexibility. By alleviating tension, they may also combat insomnia and relieve certain types of headache. In traditional Chinese medicine, however, Qigong (pronounced "chee-gong") is credited with much more. Proponents claim it has cured cancer, heart disease, AIDS, arthritis, and asthma. They also recommend it for migraines, hemorrhoids, constipation, diabetes, high blood pressure, menstrual problems, prostate trouble, impotence, and pain. Some say it even corrects nearsightedness and farsightedness.

Officially, Qigong seeks to stimulate the flow of qi (the elemental life force of Chinese medicine) along the invisible channels, or meridians, that are thought to course throughout the body. This can be achieved through internal Qigong, the do-it-yourself exercises now familiar in the West, or external Qigong, a form a psychic therapy available only from a Qigong master.
