Qigong

Literally, "breath cultivation," Qigong (气功) is a system of exercises aimed at promoting the body to heal and strengthen itself. In conjunction with traditional Chinese medicine, Qigong is practiced in order to heal and allow the body to recuperate from most any ailment or injury. Based on the Chinese concept of Qi (气), Qigong is a practice of circulating, gathering and using Qi. Qi is translated often as "the breath of life." At Shaolin, Qi is taught to be, "that which makes your heart beat." This saying is used to describe Qi as the electrical current which runs through your body. Qi runs along meridians and is stored in a place known as the Dantien (丹田). Qigong works to correct the flow of Qi along these meridians and helps awaken the Qi residing already in the Dantien. More information about Qi and its relevance in traditional Chinese medicine can be gathered by talking to your local acupuncturist.
