The majority of alternative therapies utilize the body’s vitality to restore its equilibrium. Their view of health differs significantly from that of conventional medicine, which emphasizes curing diseases. Through our collection of Chi Kung texts in PDF format, available for immediate download in this section of our virtual library, we would like to introduce you to one of the most therapeutic forms of exercise in Chinese medicine.
This alternative Chinese treatment has been utilized for approximately four thousand years. Since then, it has been utilized as an adjunct treatment. The purpose of energy equilibrium is to promote physical and mental health.
Its name is a combination of the words “Chi” (meaning vital energy) and “Kung” (meaning labor). Its fundamental principles are fortitude and concentration, and you can learn more about its origin, technique, and fundamental principles in our Chi Kung books.
Chi Kung is a therapy or therapeutic practice that incorporates movements, breathing, and mental concentration in order to balance the body’s energy, thereby preventing disease and promoting overall health. The essential aspect of this discipline is the recovery of vital energy, which should not stagnate or accelerate excessively but instead flow in harmony. In Chi Kung, conscious movement and respiration form a complementary pair.
It is founded on philosophies such as Tao, Buddhism, and the body’s appreciation of Chinese medicine. To master this restorative art, consistent practice and guidance from an experienced master are required. If you wish to learn more about its techniques and other fascinating information, however, we invite you to peruse our more than ten PDF books on Chi Kung.
