Qi Gong, which has been practiced in China for several thousand years, is similar in principle to yoga in that it uses movement and breath to bring balance to the body. It melds exercise, meditation and medicine to promote health and wellness. Strassberg learned the Jin Jing or Tendon Strengthening style of Qi Gong while attending Chinese medicine school at the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. This lineage of Qi Gong was brought to the college by the founder of its Chinese medicine department, Heiner Fruehauf. This style of Qi Gong is known to improve the structure and strength of the skeleton, especially the spine, as well as strengthening the tendons and muscles. It also improves qi and blood circulation; calms the nervous system; strengthens all the organs, meridians and channels; supports adrenal and endocrine functioning; and strengthens the immune system, supporting general health and wellness.
