One of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is to take charge of our own health. Merriam-Webster defines Medicine as: the science that deals with preventing, curing, and treating diseases. In the days before modern pharmaceuticals, our ancestors learned to work with their own body to maintain health. They knew medicine begins with me – it is the healing within that makes the body healthy. This knowledge and wisdom were passed on from generations to generations in all cultures. Unfortunate, majority of these treasures are discarded or ignored because they are “unscientific” or “unproven” by today’s abilities. It took the discovery of DNA and cloning of the sheep “Dolly” to prove the 600s BC Chinese Qigong theory “every part of the body contains all the information of the whole body” is correct. It is a two thousand plus year’s long journey! Most healing traditions are older than the science, it will take some time for the science to catch up.
Healing is to restore to health or soundness. It is a natural occurrence in all-living things. A medical professional can prescribe some medications or do a procedure to treat the body, but it is the innate wellness within that does the healing. We believe that an important component of a healthy life is the willingness to practice strengthening and enhancing that wellness. Qigong (Chi Gong, Chi Kung) has been practiced in China for thousands of years and is an effective method for enhancing health, promoting healing, and improving overall quality of life. We are pleased to share with you the wisdom and practices of this ancient tradition.
