Qi or Chi—Energy or Life force or can also mean breath. It is the basis of all traditional Chinese healing arts, from acupuncture to herbal medicine. Gong—work or skill. Chi Gong—energy work or breathing exercise, “An expertise at working with Life Force Energy.”
There are thousands of styles of Chi Gong but they all fall into three major categories:
1. Martial—method of combat
2. Medical—Forms to move chi through the body along with acupuncture to effect healthy change in the body.
3. Spiritual—Meditative practice, meditation stillness with soft moving forms.
