Experience Real Health through Emei Qigong
Qigong is said to be one of the most powerful healing modalities known to humankind. This places healthcare back in the hands of the individual.
Emei Qigong is the knowledge and practice, based on over 800 years of energy science, that through cultivating a compassionate heart, physical exercises and movements, helps create clarity and understanding of the Universe so that we can attain gradual or sudden Enlightenment.
