The Many Health Benefits of Qigong

Qigong therapy, exercise and meditation all stress the importance of Qi. Qi is the vital energy that flows through the body and nourishes it. When the flow of Qi is blocked or stagnant, everything else is affected. According to traditional Chinese medicine, maintaining a healthy Qi is vital to overall health and wellness. Practicing any form of Qigong is a great way to keep you Qi healthy.

Traditional Chinese medicine teaches that when one system of the body is ill or ailing, the entire body must be involved in the treatment because all body systems are interrelated. Qigong is practiced to prevent and treat a wide variety of diseases and disorders.  It focuses on improving the entire body. Some of the ailments that have been successfully treated with Qigong therapy include:

  • The common cold
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Constipation
  • Indigestion
  • Insomnia
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Insomnia
  • Sciatica
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Pain
  • Kidney disease
  • Anxiety

The controlled breathing that is essential to any Qigong therapy also benefits the flow of Qi.  When Qi is flowing freely it provides many mental benefits as well as physical benefits.  Practicing Qigong regularly will help to ease tension and relieve negative emotions such as anger.

When anger festers it can manifest in the form of physical symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, or stomach upset. Qigong can help to release anger and make room for more positive emotions.  Tranquility and inner peace are excellent side effects of Qigong therapy. Once these mental effects occur, people become happier and calmer.  

A more positive mental state can play a significant role in promoting good physical health because it helps to boost the immune system.   As both the body and mind become stronger through the practice of Qigong, they will be able to ward off disease and mental distress simultaneously.
