A QiGong Fact:
The average person uses only five to ten percent of his or her 15 billion brain cells; yet studies show that Qi Gong activates 90 percent of the human brain by suffusing it with stimulating bioelectric currents. This results in significant memory improvement, learning, and enhancement of the physiological functions controlled by the brain.
Studies also show that practicing Qi Gong increases the level of essential neurotransmitters in the blood. Deficiency of these elements can cause Parkinsons, Alzheimer’s, chronic depression, and insomnia.
Developed thousands of years ago, Qi Gong is practiced by over 100 million people worldwide as a way to experience a longer, more active life. The gentle, fluid movements increase energy, open the joints, stretch muscles, and enhance balance. QiGong is the perfect exercise system for Seniors! In this program, there are two unique routines, one that's done standing with no assistance -- and one that uses a chair for extra balance. There's also a routine that can be done seated, which is demonstrated by Lee's mom.

QiGong (pronounced "chee gong" and alternatively spelled as "qigong," "qi gong," or "chi kung") is sometimes called “the new yoga” - but the practice dates back thousands of years to ancient China. The word “qi” (or “chi”) means “life force” or "vital energy of the body," and “gong” means accomplishment or skill that is cultivated through steady practice. Qi Gong is specifically designed to cultivate the body's vital energy, using it to heal and strengthen every system throughout the body. Thus, qi gong means “cultivating energy,” and it involves working with energy to strengthen and cleanse the body. Using these Qi Gong DVDs, CDs, and videos will improve your relaxation, reduce pain, and improve your health.
