I started studying Qigong in 1990 and teaching in 1995. Have visited China twice, learning from top Masters to extend skills. Qigong is the medicine of the future - keeping the body moving and breathing well can alleviate many common illnesses, Wild Goose Qigong is the best complete system I know of that uses ancient knowledge of meridians and energy centres to balance the body, many aspects of which are now being proven by quantum science on a cellular and macro level.
Regular practise will clear the mind, strengthen the body and calm the emotions.
It is my joy to teach Qigong, I believe everyone should at least know some of exercises to maintain health and would like to see qigong taught daily in hospitals and schools. Certainly everyone over 50 would benefit from preparing their body for their future years, qigong keeps the body supple and co-ordinated, releases tension and moves stagnant qi.
In China qigong therapy is used as part of hospital treatment, particularly for cancer patients who are required to take daily instruction/practise in qigong for several weeks prior to Chemotherapy. Qigong builds up the immune system to encourage a speedy recovery.
