Qigong (“Chee Gong”) is a term that embraces a range of mind-body practices integrating posture, movement, breathing techniques, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. There are myriad qigong styles, such as “Qigong for fitness,” “medical qigong,” and martial arts Qigong. All styles share the objective of accessing Qi (“vital energy”) and developing Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”). Though it has its historical origins in China, Qigong is becoming more popular worldwide. Recent research into Qigong and related practices such as Tai Chi Chu’an points to a range of benefits for physical and mental health within a larger framework of integrative medicine and wellness care.
