In Qigong the body is totally relaxed, yet the blood is mobilized to flow powerfully.
Because there is no stress response or cortisol release, which contracts blood vessels, the blood can enter areas that may have been blocked off for years.
Microcirculation to the forehead is increased and digestion is improved. Imagine the same blood circulation you get from jogging many miles—while standing still completely relaxed in gentle posture.
No other exercise offers this level of blood circulation to organs, glands and joints of body.
