Qigong is a purifying, cleansing and strengthening set of exercises that promote energy flow along meridians or channels throughout the body. When a meridian is blocked, healing energy cannot flow.
The slow movements and meditative state of Qigong relaxes breathing, altering the autonomic system to restore health and balance throughout the autonomic nervous and other systems in the body. In regard to mental disturbance, Qigong regards it as disharmony of yin and yang. Thus mental well-being follows when yin and yang are harmonized.
