A Brief Overview of Qigong

A physician, medical author, and leading authority in the field of orthopedic regenerative medicine, Dr. Alimorad Farshchian serves as medical director of Miami’s Center for Regenerative Medicine. In his current role, Dr. Farshchian helps individuals with arthritis and orthopedic injuries improve their mobility through nonsurgical techniques and various exercises, including tai chi, yoga, and qigong.

Pronounced “chee gong,” qigong is a type of gentle exercise that has been practiced in China for thousands of years. While there are a variety of styles of qigong, all involve postures and exercises that combine rhythmic movement, mental focus, and regulated breathing techniques.

Qigong can help reduce stress, build stamina, relax tendons and joints, and improve circulation. In addition, the results of a 20-year study examining the effects of qigong on individuals with hypertension showed that the exercise can be quite effective at reducing and stabilizing blood pressure. The gentle nature of qigong makes it an appropriate exercise for people of all ages, but older individuals and those with health conditions should consult their doctor before beginning any exercise routine.
