The Art of Qigong for Anxiety and Depression

The Art of Qigong – For Anxiety and Depression


The ancient art of Qigong (pronounced “chee gung”) involves slow, flowing, circular movements which offer you great health benefits. It introduces you to a different way of thinking and being, by working with your own energy field. Simple exercises assist in improving emotional balance and self-awareness. So, relieving stress and bringing deep calmness to your mind while the body is in motion.

The basic translation for the Chinese word “Qi” is “Energy” or “Breath”, and “gong” meaning “work”.

What I am going to be sharing with you within these blogs, are just a few of the Qigong movements, which allow you to use a new awareness of energy. So, you can balance and harmonise your mental, emotional, physical, and even spiritual experiences in your daily life. A simple step-by-step method of transforming agitated, stagnant energy into resilience.

Creating a Healthy Flow of Energy

The entire process of holding on and letting go is just an amazing part of the continuous unfolding rhythm of life. Just like breathing, or how you begin your day and how you get up. The many ways in which you communicate with others. The process of digesting food.  Even how you react or respond to things. All of these involve the process of holding on and letting go.

The thing is, disturbances of any kind, whether in nature or within the body, arise and subside naturally. Anxiety, worry, and fear make you feel tense. And when that tension sets in, your own ability to feel what is happening within your body becomes blocked. Making it exceedingly difficult to know how tense you really are. Whatever you experience from those inner disturbances, are just part of the inner and outer energetic field. Every human being is a field of energy.

As you learn to work with your energy in a unique way, you become more able to step past the resistance of mind and embrace the more expansive and healthy flow of your body’s true energy field. Which in turn increases your stamina, your confidence, and your inner strength.

The Healing Aspects of Qigong

Working with the internal and external energy around you through the art of Qigong, is your own unique and special journey towards healthier and more vibrant energy fields. There are no age limits, as all the movements are slow, gentle, and low impact. The more you practice, the more health and wellbeing benefits you will incur.
