Qigong can also be found written as “Chi kung” or Chi gung”.  These are just different ways of transliterating the Chinese word.  Qi is the Chinese for life energy or vital energy.  The idea of qi is a fundamental concept in Chinese Medicine.  Qi is the vital force that activates every function and drives every process in the human body.  It can be compared to the electric current without which a computer would not function. Qi is the energy which is influenced by the needles of the acupuncturists.

 

Gong means work or benefits acquired through perseverance and practice.  So, qigong means working with life energy or life energy management.  Qigong is the skilful practice of  gathering, circulating and applying the life energy.  It has a very long history but the term qigong is quite recent.  The term was originated by  Lui Guizhen in 1948 when he had been commissioned by the communist party to study the effects of breathing on health.  Before this terms used at various times were tu gu na xin (expelling the old energy, drawing in the new), xing qi (moving the qi), yang sheng (nourishing the forces of life), nei gong (inner achievement) and most commonly of all dao yin (leading and guiding the energy).
