Health Benefits of "Awaken Qigong
"An Ancient Art of Holistic Healing for Today's World"
Recent studies show Medical Qigong is effective in treating disease. These studies conclude that Medical Qigong is an effective complementary treatment. In other words, it works well when used in conjunction with medication, diet, education, and all of the other things your doctor may prescribe.
Medical Qigong consists of gentle type of movements or exercises that are used to treat specific ailments and symptoms of disease. Recent studies have proven Qigong to be effective in treating:
Weakened immune system.
High blood pressure (hypertension).
Chronic fatigue syndrome.
In much the same way that physical therapy uses specially designed exercises for healing purposes, Medical Qigong uses specially designed Qigong routines to treat illness or disease.
"If you want to be healthy and live to 100, do Qigong."
