What Are The Different Types of Qigong?
Sometimes you might find it confusing to read about the many different types and styles of Qigong which are practiced. However they fall into 4 main categories which I’ll outline below.
1. Medical Qigong
This is the one in which I am particularly interested, as a Chinese medicine practitioner. Medical Qigong is concerned with health, healing and prevention of illness. Medical Qigong is actually the basis for the other types of Qigong because if you gain a good grasp of Medical Qigong then you can use this solid foundation to practice the other types of Qigong.
2. Daoist (Taoist) Qigong
This type of Qigong is concerned with health, longevity and spiritual development.
3. Buddhist Qigong
This type involves cultivation of the body, speech and mind, protection against negative energies and many types of breathing exercises.
4. Wushu (martial arts) Qigong
This type is concerned with building body strength to make it resistant against attack. This is the type of Qigong you may have seen the Shaolin monks practising. It’s a fantastic practice for martial artists but also for athletes who are looking to so some type of strength training.
