Medical Qigong

Qigong, pronounced ‘Chee-goong’, is an ancient exercise system of Classical Chinese Medicine. The exercises taught were developed around 520AD by Boddhi Darma, the 18 exercises of the Shaolin monks.

 

Qigong strengthens the legs, the lower back & stabilizes the Core. It has a positive effect on your posture, balance & muscle tone. Focusing on maintaining the small muscles & ligaments which support the bones, the joints & vertebrae helping them remain flexible & pain free. Qigong is used to rehabilitate joint, muscle & ligament damage also reducing & preventing problems with the spine. Strengthening the lower back & thighs improves flexibility in the upper body, useful for chronic shoulder & neck problems due to tension.

 

Qigong creates a balance between tension & flexibility. This makes it ideal for hypermobility syndrome & also for stiffness or a lack of free movement. It is very beneficial to a variety of musculoskeletal problems.

 

Qigong exercises are slow moving yet challenging. This combined with deep, diaphragmatic breathing improves your overall metabolism as well as strengthening & stimulating your body’s internal systems. Digestive, circulatory, respiratory & reproductive disorders all benefit from Qigong.

The exercises can be adapted to suit every individuals’ needs, whether after illness or injury or purely to maintain good physical & mental health.
