Qi Gong

, also known as chi kung, is an ancient Chinese technique consisting of a set of mindful practices. Having been created at the time of the Han Dynasty (206-220 AD), qigong is made up of movements, breathing techniques, massage, sounds and focus training that are intended to balance the vital energy of the human body.

Clinical Qigong:

the use of qigong for the treatment of a variety of diagnoses, always as a complementary treatment and not as a sole option. Clinical qigong is practiced by people who want to teach others to practice traditional medicine.

benefits of qigong

There are not as many studies on qigong as there are on tai chi. Most research on the subject is small, or from limited sources. As a result, little is known about the true benefits of qigong for physical and mental health. For practitioners of the technique, the benefits of qigong go far beyond its scientific evidence. According to the fundamentals of traditional Chinese medicine, the use of qigong can be beneficial for the treatment of any condition, as long as it is used as an adjunct to healing. Some of the benefits of qigong, which still little is known about, are:

  • Reduces fibromyalgia symptoms Helps
  • in treating depression and anxiety
  • Improves chronic obstructive
  • pulmonary disease Reduces blood
  • pressure levels Helps prevent heart disease


A well done massage is always welcome, isn’t it? And when this massage uses age-old techniques to work vital energy flows and promote improvements in certain disorders in the body, it becomes even better. This is the proposal of Tui Ná, one of the oldest therapies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM usually works with different instruments in its treatments, but in this therapy in particular, it uses the most basic tool of all: the hands of the therapists. As with acupuncture, Tui Na is based on the body’s energy meridians to act, stimulating the strategic points of these meridians with the tips of the fingers. Tui Ná techniques work directly with the energy flows through the channels, and are capable of increasing the flow, if it is weakened, eliminating possible excesses and accumulations, and clearing critical points that may be disturbing the natural energy course. The movements naturally also stimulate regular blood circulation. The benefits reaped with Tui Na are diverse. In addition to obtaining excellent results in the treatment of muscle and bone pain, it is also possible to treat illnesses in the respiratory, digestive and reproductive systems, as massage offers techniques that reach the organs of these systems, according to the needs of each person. But does not stop there. The benefits of Tui Na are also reflected in the mental and emotional health of those who choose this therapy. Highly relaxing, it reassures the body and mind, being great in combating anxiety, stress and other problems that affect the nervous system and can lead to psychosomatic symptoms in the body. Also, it’s a great ally to strengthen immunity and prevent illness.

Ernährung nach den 5 elementen (Diet therapy according to the 5 elements)

Diet therapy according to the 5 elements is food therapy that is one of the most important pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Its objectives are: toning the organs, balancing the Qi (energy flow that circulates through the body) and promoting health and nutrition through a healthy and natural diet. Dietary rules, in Traditional Chinese Medicine, are very close to “common sense” and conceive food regimes as chains of energy governed by the laws of the universe, that is, by the theory of Yin and Yang and by the theory of the Five elements.

in TCM in nutrition with the 5 elements you need to make an assessment of the patient’s condition, as well as consider the physical and mental characteristics of this person, their age, gender, profession, place where they live, organs that need to be toned and energetic aspects that need be balanced.
