As people search for more ways to enhance their health and well-being, there seems to be no stopping the growth in alternative medicine. In fact, ancient disciplines such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are attracting more adherents in the West and enjoying a resurgence in popularity.
However, of the four branches of Chinese medicine (qigong, acupuncture, herbal medicine, and medical massage), qigong remains largely a mystery to the general public.
We hope to lift this veil of secrecy surrounding qigong. To do so, one must acknowledge the idea that an infinite supply of energy exists everywhere in the universe. For those willing to accept this basic truth, understanding the healing power or qi (energy) becomes much easier. At White Cloud Inner Arts we teach people how to harness this infinite supply of energy (qi). We want to share the meaning of qigong to all who wish to know. Simply stated, qigong is the skill of cultivating the body's life energy.
In short, it is our vision that qigong, which has been successfully practiced for thousands of years, becomes easily accessible to those in the West who are ready to embrace its extraordinary benefits.
“To him who holds in his hands the Great Image (of the invisible Tao), the whole world repairs.
Men resort to him, and receive no hurt, but (find) rest, peace, and the feeling of ease.”
--Chapter 35, Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu
