Medical Qigong & Martial Arts Classes
The Healing Power of Energy
Imagine a system of medicine based on the healing power of energy.
For many of us, the notion of an energy-based medical system to promote healing might seem somewhat foreign.
But, as practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) discovered centuries ago, energy could in fact be utilized to heal the human body.
In the West, we tend to think of energy in terms of closed-systems, such as an electric current contained in a power cord. But ancient Chinese healers viewed energy in just the opposite light. Energy, they believed, was not closed-off. Rather, energy flowed freely throughout all things in the universe, ready to be utilized by those skilled in the healing arts.
What is “Qigong?”
Qi (pronounced “chee”) = The air, breath of life, or vital energy that flows through all things in the universe
Gong (pronounced “gung”) = The skill of working with or cultivating self-discipline and achievement
Qigong = The skill of cultivating the body’s electromagnetic or “life” energy

"(The Tao) produces (all things) and nourishes them; it produces them and does
not claim them as its own; it does all, and yet does not boast of it; it presides over all, and
yet does not control them. This is what is called 'The mysterious Quality' (of the Tao)."
--Chapter 10, Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu
