What is Medical Chi-Kung?

The history of Medical Chi-Kung traces its roots back to Ayurvedic medicine over 3,000 years ago. It has gradually expanded to incorporate Indonesian, Tibetan and Chinese Medicine. More recently, it has integrated principles of modern medicine, including western physiology and anatomy.

Medical Chi-Kung harmonizes the body's blood circulation, nervous system and energy (chi or Qi) by using a wide array of healing techniques, including massage, acupressure, energy work, herbal medicine and exercise.

Medical Chi-Kung is well suited for accelerating tissue rejuvenation, providing stress relief, energy balancing and re-supplementation. It is ideal for improving, maintaining and enhancing one's physical health.

What does the word Chi-Kung mean anyway?

Chi-Kung (pronounced “chee-gung,” also spelled qigong) can be translated from the Chinese to mean “energy cultivation” or “working with the life energy.” Chi-Kung is thus a broad word that encompasses any system of healing. For example, massage and acupressure can be considered a type of Chi-Kung even though in the west it usually refers a system of postures, exercises and breathing techniques akin to Tai Chi.

Chi-Kung at the Victoria Healing Centre encompasses both definitions. It is a comprehensive and very sophisticated system of healing that also contains unique exercises to enhance and maintain the effects of treatments.
