Qi Gong/Energy Skill is the ancient system of Vital Energy Cultivation developed by the Chinese people over many thousands of years. It is the fundamental aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine which works on harmonising the Qi/Energy flow of the Organs (ZangFu) & their associated Meridians (JingLuo) through Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, QiGong & TuiNa.

Combinations of meditative focus, breathing methods, movement & stillness techniques are all aspects of QiGong, by interacting with & manipulating the Qi within our bodies as well as interaction with the multitude of Qi fields around us, one can achieve an abundance of Qi flow resulting in relaxation, health, rejuvenation & vitality.

These exercises stimulate not only the energy of the body, but also the Qi flow throughout the body.

Qi-Gong training is highly meditative involving specific breathing skills,
body manipulation & focus.
