What is Medical Chi Gong?
Medical Chi Gong is an effective compilation of preventive, healing and strengthening exercises derived from about 6,000 years of the Chinese people’s experiences studying the body. As early as the Shang Dynasty (1766-1123 B.C.), there were drawings vividly representing the movement we call Chi Gong today. Another testament to it’s age, the oldest Chinese medical text, the Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic (722-480 B.C.), presents theories and methods for Two of the most significant reasons for the practice of Medical Chi Gong are to achieve longevity and higher quality of life. Long life has been a major concern of mankind for eons and it is a major subject of modern medical research. Since Medical Chi Gong offers proven theory and training methods, it would be wise for modern society to study and research it. But first, modern society must reach an understanding of internal energy (Chi), which is still new to it. In the west, it is only in the last decade that Chi is beginning to be understood as bio-energy.
