Relax the body, expand the mind
Science is confirming what the Chinese have known for centuries: Deep breathing, specific gentle movements and proper mental focus can significantly improve health, vitality and wellbeing.
Qi Gong comes in many forms. Our classes focus on two: those where the body is held still and the energy allowed to flow, and those where movements of the body are used to stimulate the energy flow. Our aim is to align breath, movement and awareness.
The movements are simple, gentle and can be practiced virtually anywhere, and even as little as five minutes a day will noticeably improve your wellbeing.
Choose from one to one sessions, group classes up to 20 max, or small groups of 4-8 people for more individual attention

In traditional Chinese medicine, it’s believed that there is a flow of energy, or Chi, around the body. Only if this flow is unimpeded will the person be at their fittest.
Qi Gong (pronounced chee gung) is one way of connecting this energy flow: alongside yoga, it’s now one of the most popular forms of healing exercise in the world.
Qi Gong is often confused with Tai Chi, but it’s much easier to learn. Whilst Tai Chi is a series of moves that have to be performed one after the other (like a dance), Qi Gong simply consists of gentle stretching movements, each performed individually.
The TVT teacher will guide your staff through this series of gentle, rhythmic movements combined with breathing meditation. They are easy, but they work both body and mind to their fullest potential The result? Better whole-system health.
Devotees claim an incredible number of benefits from Qi Gong practice, ranging from relieving migraines to decreasing the risk of strokes.
At The Vital Touch, we prefer to stick to the following more modest claims. They’re still very attractive to anyone who suffers from the effects of a busy modern life:
Qi Gong is said to promote well-being, deeper relaxation and better sleep
It also improves the circulation – great for those with cold hands and feet
Slow, deep Qi Gong breathing allows the body to take in more oxygen, assisting with the elimination of free radicals
Memory is said to improve with the supply of more oxygen to the brain
People who practise Qi Gong regularly also report increased creativity and a clearer and more tranquil state of mind

Improves posture and prevents joint injury.
