Embedded in this website is research published by the Village research team. In addition, many years teaching Qigong and Taiji verifies the healing benefits. Of course, my preferred Qigong practice is the 24 Posture Therapeutic Qigong for good reason. More on this later. There has been well over a thousand research studies on many health issues. They include cancer, arthritis, Parkinson's, fibromyalgia, Anxiety, depression, PTSD, learning disabilities, diabetes and many other miladies that plague the population. most studies are positive. The point is, how much information is needed before the health system integrates these practices as part of the healing process for the patient? It would appear obvious that that the medical system can not heal you. That is the job of the body. However the system is necessary to support the bodies ability to heal.
Now, this is where Qigong comes in, just the BASIC benefits of Qigong, reduces inflammation, reduces stress and boosts the immune response All three are necessary for the body to heal, however, the additional benefits go far beyond these and are a perfect holistic healing system.
My next blog will explain how the 24 posture Qigong impacts the physiology of the body and increases the natural healing processes. Until then, be well!
