Qì Gōng 气功, literally “life energy cultivation”, is a series of energizing exercises, which are part of the treatment methods used in Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Qì Gōng has been around in China for about 3,000 years. It has been documented that in ancient times, during the cold and rainy seasons, people who suffered from what we now call rheumatoid arthritis were able to fight off joint pain caused by this condition with special dance-like movements or routines. They warmed up the tendons and muscles thus promoting the flow of Qì and blood. Traditional Doctors commenced to observe and refine these movements, and due to their great efficiency they grew very popular among the people.

Many types of Qì Gōng emerged, among them this medical form, which moves the 12 channels of acupuncture in our body. However, all forms of Qì Gōng share the same philosophy, the same 3 key principles we should bare in mind when exercising:
1. consciousness
2. breath
3. accurate movement

Qì Gōng is now very popular worldwide, and thousands of people enjoy these exercises as a way of preventing disease, ensuring longevity and calming the mind.


In the congess break-time it will be possible to purchase acupuncture accessories and massage equipment, buy TCM books etc.
