What Practitioners Say It Does

According to ancient Chinese principles, qigong improves the flow of qi in the body, thereby reducing pain, curing disease, and promoting better health. It is believed that qigong works by breaking down energy blockages, thus enhancing energy flow throughout the body. The improved flow of energy stimulates internal organs and blood, lymph, and nerve-impulse circulation, all of which are deemed important to the maintenance and restoration of good health.

Proponents indicate that qigong lowers heart rate and blood pressure, and improves relaxation potential. Specific qigong exercises aimed at directing the flow of qi to certain areas of the body are used to help prevent tension headaches, constipation, and insomnia. Practitioners describe reports of qigong curing disease, reducing farsightedness and nearsightedness and treating sinus allergies, hemorrhoids, and problems of the prostate (all highly unlikely). Other reports indicate that qigong can lessen the pain of arthritis and migraine headaches and alleviate depression, reduce anxiety, and promote sounder sleep (very probable).
