« on: July 24, 2015, 07:50:35 am »
Chi Kung (also commonly spelled 'Qi Gong') is an ancient health preserving exercise developed in China. There are many different styles of Chi Kung practiced and today and it is also becoming increasing popular around the world, practiced by young and the elderly alike.

According to ancient Chinese theories the body's energies flow and circulate in channels much like blood does. The flow and free circulation can be blocked by different external or internal effects (such as cold or a bruise) and these weaken the functionality of a part of the body or an internal organ. There are main channels, these are called 'Meridians' where most of the energies flow and also there are various smaller channels such as collateral, connecting of linking channels p - the latter function more as assistant to the main channels. These channels are the exact same that are used in traditional Chinese medicine such as acupuncture or moxibustion. To help preventing the occurrence of diseases different Chi Kung - or energy regulation - techniques were developed. These exercises help ensuring the flee flow of 'Chi' or energy in the body, thus very effectively helping preserving one's health.
