China national treasure

Throughout China Qigong is regarded as part of the cultural heritage and it is in this sense that it is commonly known as a “national treasure”. In many Western countries people have taken up Qigong and have begun to assimilate it into their own traditions and local forms of therapy, but it is only in the last ten years that Qigong has acquired truly worldwide acclaim, not just in China and the West, for its preventative and life-prolonging potential.

There are, however, still wider applications being developed, and there are several countries where it is recognised that Qigong not only builds up physical strength, but helps prevent and cure infectious (exegetic) conditions, control and cure conditions which arise (endogenic) from imbalances in the body’s (internal) environmental equilibria, and that in these cases it can offer a specific set of remedies.
