Workshop - qi gong

Qi flows through the meridians of the body, just like water flows through the rivers. If a blockage occurs in one of these meridians, body rivers, the qi flow can stagnate and the body can become unbalanced, get sick. Just like acupuncture, herbal medicine and Tuina massage, Qi Gong is one of the therapy forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The purpose of the TCM is to solve block quays in the body so that qi can flow freely through the body again. By practicing Qi Gong you clear the blockages and open the meridians in the body, so that all body parts can communicate freely with each other, and the body comes back into balance. Everything in the universe is constantly in motion and follows the principles of nature
