An Ancient Art for the Modern World

According to traditional Chinese medicine, Qi is energy or life force. It circulates through the body enhancing health and vitality. Everything in the universe is comprised of 5 elements; within the body this is represented by the five vital organs. The 5 Element Qigong generates more Qi for each organ and improves the health of the whole person.

Dr Lam's team has incorporated medical knowledge with qigong to create a unique and simple exercise that is powerfully effective for health. As tai chi is a form of qigong, this DVD will benefit tai chi practitioners and teachers. Practicing qigong complements all Tai Chi for Health programs.

What is Qigong?
"Qigong" comes from two Chinese words. Qi is the life energy inside a person that circulates throughout the body to provide inner strength and maintain good health. Gong is a method of exercise in this context. So Qigong is an exercise which cultivates better and stronger Qi. The stronger Qi you have, the healthier and stronger you are.

Qigong is especially beneficial for health and mental relaxation. The 5 Elements Qigong taught in this DVD is easy-to-earn and powerfully effective for health.

Health Benefits
Qigong (Chi Kung) is a mysterious part of Chinese culture, many believe it has magical powers to transform one"s mental and physical health. In this DVD, Dr. Paul Lam will show you how to gain the many health benefits by practising this ancient Chinese art.

As well as detailed teaching of the 5 Element Qigong, the DVD includes warm up and washing Qi (wind down) exercises.

The Five Element Qigong

According to ancient Chinese philosophy, all things in the universe are made up of five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. These elements have different properties: earth nurtures all living beings, metal is sharp and changeable, water runs down and irrigate the earth while wood is characterised by growth and fire is hot.

The five elements represent five major internal organs of the body. They interrelate and influence each other. While one enhances another, they also negate each other. The positive relationships are: metal gives life to earth, earth gives life to water, water gives life to wood, wood to fire and so on.

The negative relationships also work in a continual circle; earth negates water, water negates fire, fire negates metal, metal negates wood and wood negates earth and so on. The 5 Element Qigong is based on this theory of nature, and is effective in promoting all aspects of health, including relaxation, mental concentration and cultivating Qi.

How to do Qigong well
The ultimate goal is to use your conscious mind to direct the Qi, use Qi to direct your physical body, thus combining the mind, Qi and body as one co-ordinated entity. This may sound challenging, but the actual learning and practice is relatively easy. With regular practice you will progress steadily to the ultimate goal. You will gain health benefits almost right from the start of your practice. The most enjoyable part is the practice, and the many health benefits you gain as you progress.

  5. Dr Lam's Teaching style takes you slow and sure 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2019

    The Five Element QiGong DVD takes you one step at a time.
    You can learn slowly and only move on when you have learned the step you are on.
    Dr Lam is very clear in what to do and uses repetition to bolster you learning style.
    After each Lesson you get a run through, to review this lesson and prior lessons.
    It helps to reinforce memory retention.
    I like the way Dr Lam produces his Lessons.

    I found this program easy to learn and to teach. My TCA students have found it a very helpful tool in learning the Dan Tian breathing method. It has improved their tai chi and relaxation....thank you Dr. Lam!

  7. This should be sold as a beginner DVD 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jun 2019

    I have bought several Tai Chi DVD's from you and I love them all with the exception of this one. It is really a simple DVD and just goes over the things you learn in the other DVD's. Was disappointed with this one.
    But my sister-in-law is thinking about trying Tai Chi so it should be a good one for her.
