The soft overcomes the hard: the flexible conquers the stiff: the ethereal penetrates the solid.
This is why there us great advantage in stillness and silence over movement and speaking.
Tao Te Ching
Although I am trained as a professional psychotherapist, I am not a medical Doctor. Physical illness and medical issues occur in the body for complex reasons including genetics, lifestyle choices, environmental factors, childhood history and mental and emotional history as well as some unforeseen and unconscious factors. Qigong is not a panacea and it is not a cure all for medical conditions. Qigong practise is also in no way intended as a substitute for medical advice with a licensed medical physician or as a substitute for regular psychotherapy with a professional therapist.
