It’s harder to remedy an illness than to prevent it, and Qigong has powerful preventive effects. However, when disharmony becomes apparent, Qigong exercises also can play a crucial role in restoring harmony.

Qigong movement and postures are shaped by the principle of Yin/Yang: the complementary interrelationship of qualities such as fast and slow, hard and soft, Excess or Deficiency, and External and Internal. Qigong exercises use these contrasting and complementary qualities to restore harmony to the Essential Substances, Organ Systems, and Channels.

Dragon and Tiger Medical Qigong

It’s a 1,500-year-old self-healing movement system based on acupuncture. It is sometimes called “meridian-line qigong” because it helps free you of energetic (chi) blockages by balancing the chi flow that runs through the acupuncture meridians or energy channels of your body.

This powerful qigong (chi gung) set offers about 80 percent of the benefits of longer, more complex forms, but in just seven simple movements that are relatively easy to learn for astounding health benefits not found in most Western exercise systems.

Dragon and Tiger Qigong’s seven movements literally trace the acupuncture lines of your body to move and disperse stagnant chi.The movements are easy to learn yet challenging enough to keep Dragon and Tiger Qigong interesting for ongoing practice.


The mysticism of the East has intrigued westerners for hundreds of years. However how much is really mystic and how much is scientific? Qigong and its benefits seem esoteric and awe-inspiring to many of us, with a strong spiritual meaning. Spirit does not necessarily have to be religious and most of the Qigong practiced in the West is for health and fitness, it is an exercise with no religious connotations, therefore it does not conflict with a person´s beliefs. In many Qigong forms it refers more to a person’s vitality, the health, energy and outlook on life.
