Abstract

Qigong has been around for more than 4,000 years. It contains aspects of martial arts, philosophy, theology, mindfulness, meditation, exercise, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is a subfield of health economics. Practicing qigong exercises on a regular basis can improve health and cause the body to function more efficiently.
