Qigong Master Mingtong Gu talks about the benefits of Qigong for health and happiness in a new video four-minute short, that is being presented free to public television stations across the country for broadcast. “I wanted to let western audiences hear how every one can improve health and happiness with Qigong. It helps people facing stress, illness and it is essential in supporting modern healthcare.”
Qigong (pronounced chee-GONG) is the mind-body-heart practice, quickly gaining an audience in the west. People who regularly practice Qigong report remarkable results, from more energy and clear thinking, to overcoming serious illness. This video short includes interviews with people who found Qigong helped them with such illnesses as Cancer, Parkinsons and depression. Qigong student Bianca Molle, who is profiled in the video short, says Qigong allows her to be free of Parkinson’s symptoms and medications.
“Qigong is a gentle but powerful system that can be practiced any where, at any time, by any one—it begins by discovering the teachings, doing the practice, being ready for a full life.” Master Gu said. At the core of Qigong is the concept of Qi. For over five millennia eastern teachers have taught that "Qi", described as a life force energy that flows through the body, influencing health, happiness and vitality. Illness, stress, aging and injury block the flow of the Qi. By practicing Qigong with its gentle movement, meditation, visualization and sound, a student learns to cultivate inner wisdom to improve everyday living. It has been used by millions to prevent illness and slow the aging process, and in tandem with conventional medical treatment.
