There Is More To  Longevity

Than  Just Staying Alive!


Qi Gong is an ancient ritual that has been practiced by the people of China for centuries to maintain Health and create Longevity. Dating back more than 5000 years, this practice has evolved into many different "forms".  The form we practice and teach is Qi Gong 18 Style, which consist of 18 simple movements combined with breathing patterns and performed in a 20 minute session.  When done on a daily basis, these simple movements can make profound changes in your Body, Mind and Spirit. During one 20 minute session, Qi Gong 18 Style moves each joint and uses every muscle in your body, and provides a massage for all your internal organs and glands.

Medical Studies of Qi Gong conducted by Universities in the U.S. are showing Qi Gong to be very effective in creating Balance, thus helping to prevent falls. It is also effective for CardioPulmonary disorders and intestinal problems and is used to treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Migraine Headaches. and minimize Chronic Pain. In China, Qi Gong is incorporated in Cancer treatments, helping patients recover from chemotherapy and minimize treatments. Qi Gong is also excellent for Stress Reduction and Hypertension.

Qi Gong is the foundation of all the Martial Arts, However, Qi Gong itself contains no self defense, but helps develop focus and concentration and build self confidence.

Tommy and Julia McDonnell live in our neighborhood and give classes in our community clubhouse twice a week. The workout takes twenty minutes and exercises every muscle in the body, including small muscles that most workouts overlook. It also stretches meridians to organs, and the organs themselves. This creates a euphoric sense of well being that leads to wishing to do the workout on a daily basis. A few weeks into taking the classes at the clubhouse, I bought the DVD, and now do qigong every day.
