Caption: Wudang qigong. Wudang qigong practitioner performing a relaxation exercise. Wudang qigong is an ancient martial art that dates back over 5000 years. It originates from the region around the Wudang mountain, China. More modern martial arts, such as tai chi evolved from this martial art. Qigong uses breathing, meditation, and massage exercise to promote overall vitality. In Chinese medicine qi is life energy or force, and gong is the act of cultivating energy. Qigong is a set of complex, slow-motion movements designed to ensure a smooth flow of qi through the mind and body.
