 Mind/Body Tools for Peak Performance: The Self Reliance and Empowerment Path  

Qigong practice activates a number of the body's self regulating systems which are responsible for the balanced function of the tissues, organs and glands. The uptake of oxygen, as well as, oxygen metabolism is tremendously enhanced by Qigong practice. The positive impact of oxygen metabolism alone has powerful implications for both physical and brain activity. In the area of sports, peak levels of performance can be cultivated through Qigong in addition to normal training.

In the work of individuals who have physically demanding jobs the refinement of function that comes with Qigong practice adds to strength, stamina and endurance. Executives, whose work is more mental, derive not only more endurance, but concentration, creativity and intuition, as well. The tremendous health risk factors of tension and stress are profoundly neutralized by the common effects of Qigong: enhanced oxygen metabolism, balancing of the autonomic nervous system, pumping of the lymph, enhancement of the bio-electrical field, etc.

Qigong is the medicine for the healer. When the directive is "physician heal thyself". The prescription, in China, is Qigong. Qigong is referred to as acupuncture without needles. Elmer Green, Ph.D., author of "Beyond Biofeedback" and one of the great researcher/thinkers of the western world has said "We have concluded from our work with hundreds of patients that anything you can accomplish with an acupuncture needle you can do with your mind".(27) The Qi Gong tradition in China is the discipline through which "heal thy self" (healthy self) is accomplished. Breath, motion, intention and visualization when activated together through the Qigong system are the great preventive medicine that lies within.
