Chi Gung pronounced ‘chee gong’. Chi Gung is an ancient Chinese health practice based on a variety of gentle movements, meditation and breathing.
It is a close cousin to Tai Chi and the movements are simple and repetitive and accessible to many people. It both relaxes one and sharpens the mind. Chi Gung has wide-ranging benefits including raising energy, lowering blood pressure, easing depression, improving muscle and joint movement etc. Chi Gung techniques also help to strengthen and balance all the internal organs. Most people think that aerobic exercise is necessary to strengthen the heart and lungs; however the slow, deep, regular breathing and energy movements of Chi Gung combine to work oxygen even deeper into the tissues than regular exercise.
Chi Gung’s ability to strengthen the nervous system makes it a magniﬁcent effective technique for relieving stress on a day-to-day basis.
