Five Element Qigong is a practice to help us deeply communicate with the universal Five Elements Qi. It is a way to open energy systems of the body and harmonize the organ systems. It focuses on re-establishing harmony within the body, thereby enhancing an individual’s vitality.
Strengthen Your Organ System and Achieve Inner Harmony
From the Chinese shamanic perspective, the body is an energetic system constructed of five subsystems—Liver, Heart, Spleen, Lung, and Kidney. Each subsystem represents one of the five elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. One of the goals of Qigong practice is to harmonize the five element energy in our bodies. The body will be well maintained if the five elemental energies are in a balanced state.
