Balanced Energy Brings Enhanced Performance
More than 5,000 years ago Chinese scholars began studying the energy of the human
body. They studied the energy of the body to find ways to achieve and maintain optimal
health, wellness and performance in all aspects of life. This study and practice
became known as Qigong.
In Chinese, Qi means energy and Gong means work. The word qigong literally means
working with the body’s energy. A key point those Chinese scholars discovered is
that - balanced energy brings enhanced performance.
Spring Forest Qigong is a revised and enhanced form of qigong created by Qigong
Master Chunyi Lin.
SFQ is a system of very simple, yet very powerful techniques of Breathing, Movement
and Mental Focus that can help anyone and everyone to achieve and maintain energy
balance and with it higher levels of performance.
This approach not only produces positive results for the individual athlete it can
do the same for an entire team as well.
According to Greg Gerber, M.D. of SW Memorial Hospital in Houston, Texas: “Master
Lin has done what many considered impossible. He has taken 5,000 years of intricate,
complex teachings and synthesized them into a system that anyone can learn and benefit
These teachings referred to by Dr. Gerber can be invaluable to coaches and players
at all levels of sports from divisional and club play to the professional level
because they are easily learned yet can powerfully affect the individual athlete
as well as the team’s performance.
Some benefits include:
- Heightened mental clarity and creativity
- Heightened mental focus – especially under pressure in a game situation
- Increased physical energy and endurance
- Faster recovery from injuries or illness
- Quicker reaction time
- Greater body control and improved dexterity
- Heightened ability to stay in the zone – “in the now”
- Better team chemistry and cohesion
- Cost effective to learn and utilize
