It is a well known Chinese saying that "Qigong can cure 100 illnesses".

The Chinese dictionary will define "Qigong" as an ancient Taosist breathing exercise. Qi or chi literally means breath, health, steam, air and weather, the flowing of the unseen life force. For a long time, Chinese medicine has put breathing methodology on a pedestal above all other medical practices. Not only is it cardinal to diagnosis, it is also essential to well-being.

With little outside influence, it is no wonder that Qigong is well-practiced and prescribed in all Chinese communities throughout Asia. It is both a discipline as well as an energy revitalizer.
