Qi Gong, pronounced “chi gong,” was developed in China thousands of years ago as part of traditional Chinese medicine. It involves using exercises to optimize energy within the body, mind, and spirit, with the goal of improving and maintaining health and well-being. Qi Gong has both psychological and physical components and involves the regulation of the mind, breath, and body’s movement and posture.
