What is Qigong?

QiGong

What is Qigong?

The National Qigong Association (NQA) states “Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention.”
According to the NQA, the word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe.  The second word, Gong, pronounced gung, means accomplishment, or skill that is cultivated through steady practice. Together, Qigong (Chi Kung) means cultivating energy, it is a system practiced for health maintenance, healing and increasing vitality.

I recommend learning and practicing QiGong.  QiGong can help open your energy centers where healing can take place.  It can help you to feel centered and grounded. QiGong is mediation in motion.  Learn the moves so that you can forget them consciously.  Learn just a few simple moves and begin.  If you are handicapped, you may visualize the movements and receive health benefits just as you would from meditating.

While hypnosis has mainly had a medical or therapeutic application, its use in sports is not new. For more than fifty years it has been commonly used and is credited for attainment of numerous medals at the Olympic games. Olympic athlete Mary Lou Retton used sports hypnosis to help bring a gold, and many other medals, home to the United States. She would visualize her performance and convince her mind that she could achieve the idea in her head. Her brain trained her body to believe she could achieve a perfect routine. The Russian gymnastic team has been bring hypnotherapists to the Olympic games for years. Any athlete can use this technique to improve their game. Boxer Kevin McBride is known for beating Mike Tyson in a championship fight. The boxer used hypnosis to uncover his full potential. Sport hypnosis helps athletes channel more of their brain power when they play.

Many experts suggest drinking eight 8 oz glasses per day. Some suggest half your body weight in fluid ounces per day.
Make sure to drink more water when exercising. Muscles do not work as well when they are dehydrated. Fuel up with at least 8 ounces before you exercise and sip throughout your workout.
Water is calorie free. If you would like to lose weight, swap soda and other higher calorie drinks for water.

Water will not only keep you energized, water can help keep your skin looking youthful.
Make water your beverage of choice!

Tiger Woods has had a long and prestigious golfing career. He is arguably one of the greatest golfers in American history. Tiger Woods has been a disciple of sports hypnosis since he was 13. He uses sport hypnosis to calm his mind before golfing matches. He frees his mind from worry and pressure, and this technique allows him to perform better. The brain does not function at its full potential during every moment of the day. Hypnosis helps athletes channel more of their brain power and focus their energy. Anyone can call upon this power and use more of their mind. Using more of one’s mind can help an athlete achieve new records and accomplish things they had not done before.
