For interpersonal relations, your personal Qi can be changed through activities such as reading books, listening to music, taking a class, relaxing, and new life experiences.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, your Qi can be strengthened through regular exercise, lifestyle improvements, healthy eating, meditating, and practicing Qigong.
The term Qigong refers to the practice of cultivating and strengthening your Qi. This practice helps to improve the circulation of Qi inside your body. There are different types or levels of Qigong practice.
Qigong practices for moving and cultivating Qi are completed through breathing techniques, meditation practice, the use of imagination, or a guiding technique using body posture and movement. These practices are created from experience and through the understanding of Qi.
Tai Chi improves your health by making changes in your mental focus, breathing, coordination, and relaxation. The goal is to rebalance your body's natural healing capacity. Individuals are taught during exercise to be mindful of what their bodies are doing and how they feel.
Precise movements and focused body awareness distinguish Tai Chi as “meditation in motion”, evoking a connection between the mind and body. It can help you bring your mind into a zone of calm and clarity. It’s been used as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for many years and it has become the focus of scientific research regarding its health benefits.
