Abstract

Qigong is a form of exercise developed in China over millennia to prevent illness and foster physical and mental health. Despite many claims of the therapeutic effects of Qigong, the fundamental concepts and principles underlying this holistic therapy remain unfamiliar to Western populations. This article helps practitioners to understand the art of Qigong based on three main principles, harmonising the breath, the body and the mind.
