Barefoot Doctor's Qigongo
Once you start, unless you're extremely contrary and strong willed to your detriment, you're so swiftly hooked you can't actually imagine how you could possibly function without it.
Of course you can but only as a regular human – it's the superhuman (for want of a better word) dimension the practice affords you that's hard to do without once you're hooked.
Not to mention the remarkable increase of ease and vivacity of your joints and muscles and general comfort in your skin, as well as all the aforementioned boons.
Qigong – What exactly is it? (pronounced chi) to spell key – means literally breath.
However, it alludes to something far more complex than we normally think of as breath.
It means the power of all the motion of the universe, the breath of the cosmos.
Gong means work or intervention.
