Why Should you Practice Qigong?
Whether you are just beginning your Qigong journey, or you have been practicing for a little while then you are taking your health into your own hands.There are many reasons to practice Qigong and so many benefits that we get from regular, simple practices. Qigong is an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the movements have been developed over 1000's of years to bring the mind and body in to a relaxed state so the human body's natural healing mechanisms can do it's job.
Qigong helps increase circulation without causing strain. Every health professional would suggest that healthy circulation through the muscles, joints, spine, brain, skin, and soft tissue is very beneficial to health. The key is, we need to increase circulation without causing excessive strain in the body. It would be great to go for a hard run up the side of a mountain, but in reality the chance of injury is relatively high. Qigong offers a gentle method of stimulation that will not harm or strain the body.
Qigong is an excellent tool to help manage and reduce stress.There is no doubt that we, as a culture, carry too much tension, stress, and excessive emotion. Most of us have never really learned how to manage this. Qigong is an excellent tool (along with many others) to teach ourselves to unwind, relax, and find a state of tranquility.
Qigong is an excellent tool to help with prevention. You've heard the phrase "An ounce of prevention equals a pound of cure." It is very true! If we can find a way to prevent illnesses from progressing, address aches and pains before they become a major issue and slow down the aging process, it would be excellent for long and short term health. Qigong can be one tool that helps with prevention of future health issues.
