Chi Kung - Qigong

There are clues in the Chinese character Chi or Qi, to its meaning. As many Chinese characters emerged as drawings. Over time they became simplified but still retain the essence of what is being conveyed. The character for Chi is written in two parts. the upper part representing air or steam. The lower part is the character for rice (cooking) together they represent the simple equation - food + air = energy.

The word "Kung" means work or to work with. Chi Kung can thus be translated as working with energy. The art of circulating Chi in the most appropriate way to the purpose for which it is practiced.

There are many different systems of Chi Kung, some practiced with the body still and some moving to various forms and movements. Various forms of traditional Chi Kung in China are related to health and the spiritual currents of China such as Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism.

Chi Kung is a strong basis for many martial arts. Kung Fu is strongly based on Chi Kung and the cultivation of Chi. Chi Kung is practiced for therapeutic purposes is based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture.
