Harmonize body, mind, and spirit with qigong, an ancient system of self-healing used in China for more than 2,000
years to maintain health and achieve longevity. Simple yet profound, qigong prevents and heals disease with gentle
exercises that combine breath, slow movement, self-massage, and meditation.
When you practice Ocean Qigong, your whole being slows down into profound relaxation. This sequence also opens
the chest and upper back to benefit the heart and lungs and relieve upper back pain. The practice is useful for stress
reduction, fatigue, insomnia, hypertension, and overall health.
Ocean Qigong is a slow and gentle sequence that
• Soothes the nervous system
• Calms the mind
