REBALANCING his body through Qigong saved him from the terrors of cancer according to Infinite Qigong Association president Aaron Chin.
Having been diagnosed with thyroid and nose cancer about four years ago, Mr Chin turned to the practice of Qigong after seeing how it had helped is friend through the same ordeal.
Similar to Thai Chi, Qigong takes participants through a set of slow, gentle movement while focusing on the breath.
“As a cancer patient I really suffered, I never had the energy to wake up and after the radiation and chemotherapy it was a nightmare,” Mr Chin said.
“Qigong has been very good for me, I now feel energised and refreshed because Qigong is a form of ‘Qi’ exercise.
“If any part of your body is in pain it is because your energy lines, your ‘Qi’ is blocked.
“So, the health benefits of Qigong come from supporting the body’s natural tendency to return to balance and equilibrium by gently creating strength, flexibility and balance in the muscles and joints through gentle flowing movements.
