QiGong is considered one of the five branches of Asian Medicine, a foundation for martial arts, and a spiritual practice revered in Daoist and Chan Buddhist tradition. Qi is a vital element found in everything: the sun, the trees, the wind, the sky, the blooming flowers in spring and the falling leaves in the fall. Qi is in every human body, too. Hypocrates called it pneuma, or vitality. When out of balance, your qi flow can become deficient, stagnant, or excessive and therefore could leave you feeling sluggish, heavy, tight, or anxious. Qigong has been used for centuries to correct such imbalances.
