Qi gong is a corollary treatment to acupuncture that you do on your own to increase your health and promote longevity.
Qi gong tones the nervous system, relaxes the muscles, increases endurance, facilitates deeper breathing, and in general creates a more relaxed state.
We think of qi gong as moving meditation because it clears the mind while working the body.
Qi gong is the basis of the Chinese internal arts Tai Ji, Ba Gua, and Hsing I, and it can be done standing, sitting, or lying down, though it is recommended to begin with standing.
As part of your treatment plan, we recommend qi gong exercises to enhance your treatment with acupuncture, showing you how to do them and tracking your progress as you practice on your own.
