Qigong uses breathing techniques, gentle movement and meditation to cleanse, strengthen, and circulate the life energy which can lead to better health and vitality and a tranquil state of mind.

It is a form of gentle exercise composed of movements that are repeated a number of times, often stretching of the body. These exercises once learnt (and this takes time and practise) can bring about increased muscular efficiency and coordination, improved breathing and blood flow, greater flexibility, a higher level of internal balance and harmony and an improved immune system.

It is possible to adapt, in the short term, some of the exercises and techniques to facilitate healing, enable calming and improve coping strategies.
