In Medical Chi Gong, health is represented as a balance of yin and yang. These two forces represent the bipolar manifestation of all things in nature and, because of this, one must be present to allow the other to exist. Hence, whatever has a front also has a back, night is followed by day, etc. On an emotional level, one would not know joy had they never experienced pain.

 

It is important to note that the balance of yin and yang is not always exact, even when the body is healthy. Under normal circumstances the balance is in a state of constant change based on both the external and internal environment.

 

For example, during times of anger, a person’s mood is more fiery, or yang and yet, once the anger has subsided and a quiet peaceful state is achieved, yin may dominate.

 

This shift in the balance of yin and yang is very natural. It is when the balance is consistently altered and one (be it yin or yang) regularly dominates the other that health is compromised resulting in illness and disease.

 

Practitioners attempt to balance the body through Medical Chi Gong breathing techniques and body positions. The correct practice of Medical Chi Gong can balance the Five Element Zang and Fu Organs and Nine Gates. As balance is restored in the body, so is health.

“I want to say…

a few words about Master Michael Leone.  I was looking for someone who could help instruct me a little bit more in depth in the world of Qi Gong and how it works, not just the movement and the breathing. 

He’s definitely the right person for that.  He’s well versed and well trained.  He will help you understand the basics, and give you a better understanding of how you can go about helping other people learn about Qi Gong.  How it can benefit their health, themselves, their friends, their family, and everyone around them.  If you’re looking for something like that, I would highly recommend Master Campbell and Master Leone’s services."

“I began my training…

at Zen Wellness on February 6, 2010. In my time there I have learned life skills I will keep forever in my mind and body.

Although my primary focus was Kung Fu, I have also participated in several Qigong classes, both of which have benefited me greatly. I am so thankful that I have discovered the importance of understanding how to cleanse my chi; knowing what that means alone, is a benefit in itself. To me it is a process of filling my heart, body, mind and spirit with purifying thoughts through various forms of meditation and movement.

The most important lessons I gained from training are the fundamentals of dedication, hard work, strength, honor, respect and courtesy. All of these will help me in my pursuit of success in my acting career and personal life. By attending classes I have completed the development of a new perspective on life and the way I move throughout it. I now approach life with a new mentality that I learned in class; “by telling myself I have already achieved something, that solves half the battle.” Although I am grateful for all of these things, I am most thankful for my Kung Fu skills.
