Qigong has been scientifically proven to change brain chemistry!
Qigong increases circulation to the brain, changing brain chemistry to reduce states of anxiety or challenges with attention.When blood circulation to the brain increases, focus and mental clarity occur, along with less atrophy of brain tissue.
Engaging in a regular practice of qigong can also positively impact your attention levels and protect the brain against premature aging.
Qigong also increases alpha brain waves. These waves are associated with deep states of relaxation and also with focused concentration as in the states of meditation. Qigong also activates the visual cortex and thalamus in a specific way that reduces anxiety levels.
The gentle flowing movements of qigong also helps the brain by challenging coordination between movements and breath work which nourishes the neurological system to reduce dementia in elderly people.
Thus, qigong is often used as therapies to prevent neurological atrophy and challenge the brain to stay vibrant and healthy throughout all phases of our lives.
Although Qigong has been around for thousands of years, its just becoming more popular in the western world.
