Qigong & Chinese Medicine

The meaning of the word "qigong" can be found in its two parts: "qi" is life-force - what makes us alive instead of dead; and "gong" means cultivation. Qigong practices, then, involve the cultivation - the strengthening and balancing - of our life-force. Chinese Medicine is qigong's companion system: used also to bring our life-force into a greater harmony, and hence prevent or cure dis-ease.
