Why Health Qigong?

QiGong (pronounced chee-gong), is a traditional Chinese meditative exercise for promoting health and cultivating spiritual balance. "The Chinese Health QiGong Association has distilled over two thousand years of wisdom into the four balanced and scientifically rigorous routines of Health QiGong. Health Qigong provides sound advice for attaining the greatest therapeutic benefit possible, helping to accelerate the results of qigong practice in several ways:

  • It gives specific guidelines for getting the most benefit from qigong that all practitioners can benefit from.
  • It provides conceptual tools, important for approaching qigong practice with an appropriate attitude.
  • It provides a theoretical basic of understanding for further study. "(*)

Concept of Health QiGong

Qigong was first brought under government management in China in August 1996, for the purpose of guiding the healthy development of social qigong activities. The relevant government departments jointly issued the Notice of Enhancing the Management of Social Qigong, introducing and defining the concept of "Social QiGong", "Health Qigong" and "Qigong Medical Care". "Social QiGong" is "Health Qigong and Medical Qigong activities participated in by mane people". Qigong exercises participated in by people for the purpose of fitness, promoting helth, and rehabilitation are Health Qigong. Qigong exercises being taught or applied directly for the purpose of medical treatment are Qigong Medical Care.

In July of 2000, the State Ministry of Health enacted the Provisional Regulations on the Management of Medical Qigong, in which "Qigong Medical Care" was renamed "Medical Qigong" and defined as "treating disease with the methods of qigong".

Then in September of the same year, the General Administration of Sports of China further defined "Health Qigong " as "a traditional national sport". In the Provisisonal Regulations on the Management of Health Qigong, it stated that "Health Qigong is a traditional national sport mainly focusing on a combination of body movement, breathing techniques, and mental regulation; it is an important element of traditional Chinese culture". The Administration went on to establish an administrative agency and the Chinese Health Qigong Association to promote the popularization of health qigong. Since then, health qigong has undergone a continuing process of formalization. " (*)

Key Elements of Health Qigong Practice

"A human being is composed of body and mind. The harmonious coordination of the two is necessary for health as well as meeting the purposes of qigong practice. In qigong theory, our body and mind are represented by "(physical) body" and "spirit" respectively, with qi linking the two to form an organic whole. Therefore, the life of a person is a unity of body, qi and spirit (sometimes referred to as "body, qi and mind"), as has been written: "Body, the residence of life; qi, the supplement of life; spirit, the governor of life."

Thus, health qigong incorporates three techniques of regulation; body regulation, breath regulation and mind regulation; which correspond to the body, qi and spirit of a human being. The "Three Regulations" are the key elements of health qigong practice.  " (*)
