Stress reduction is an instantaneous result of practicing qigong but there are other benefits. If you have trouble sleeping due to chronic pain or discomfort, even back pain, qigong can help here too. Qigong may be practiced standing, sitting, lying down, walking or even sitting in front of a computer!
There are several ways qigong can help us sleep soundly and more deeply. It is an excellent "stress reducer". I have personally found it to be equal or even superior to yoga in this way. And because it can be so simple to practice (and I'm rather lazy!) Its quite easy to find a few minutes a day to do one or two of the exercises.
Do you suffer with narcolepsy?Troubled with restless legs syndrome?Are you depressed?These are all areas that qigong can help. It will balance the body's energy and gently help the self healing of virtually any complaint.
