Qigong is an ancient form of healing arts that has been kept hidden for thousands of years from the general public in China. It branches from 少林 Shaolin traditions, 佛教 buddhism and 中国道家中医traditional Chinese medicine which goes back to the origins of Daoism. In that era, Qigong was only accessible to the kings and emperors as it was seen as a privilege due to its powerful strength.



So what is Qi?

Qi - 氣 - This word Qi gets thrown around too much in today’s society; some people call it energy, electricity, air, prana or life force. These translations may be correct from Google translations, but the correct translation and the Qi that our practitioners' uses the meaning is rather different.
- If we were to translate the meaning of Qi from Cantonese to English it will be

" Healing Medicine Energy "

Our authentic and unique type of Healing Medicine Energy dates back 2000 years ago, with its origins beginning from a small family lineage. This healing modality was kept hidden 
from the western world up until 1970. Since its revival, it has been used in hospitals in Japan, Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Taiwan. Only up until recent years that we have now brought this healing modality to the western culture right here in Australia as one of the first.


What does Qi do?

Qi unblocks the acupuncture channels 打通經絡 in our body and increases the red and white blood cells to begin the bodies' self-healing process. Qi helps with healing physical, emotional and mental ailments which then helps to maintain a healthy state, life longevity, boosts the immune system and also strengthens the digestive and nervous system. When the acupuncture channels in our body becomes blocked we start to experience physical pain and internal issues and with each issue it relates to certain different organs within the body. Our practitioners' then help with unblocking these channels by emitting Qi into the patients body and focus on the areas that require extra attention.

As we get older our body slowly deteriorates with our capillaries becoming dry. Think of our body like a tunnel of water going through the seasons, when the tunnel is filled with water things move along fluidly however, when it becomes dry the tunnel becomes clogged with friction. Just like our human body, it is structured to rely on proper care and nutrition to help it function at the optimum level. But as time moves along, we age, we slowly feel pain or get new pain or diseases and many other common problems that the elderly experience.

How Qi helps is by reversing that process by acting like water going into that dried up tunnel and then flooding the dried up soil with nutritious water to help it stay within the body.

With Qi in the body the body can help heal itself better.

As the patient has more treatments, Qi will then expand deeper into the channels (acupuncture channels) and that is when many people say they have experienced a miracle as they start feel better. 

“黃帝內經” says....
“When ones channels are fully unblocked with Qi, 10 years will be added to their life. If in the book of life, someone is written to live until 65 years of age but after they have their channels unblocked and diseases cleared - they will live up to 75 years of age”
