Albany Qigong

A way toward health and longevity

"Evidence demonstrates that qigong may be an effect adjunct in the treatment of many illnesses including cancer and heart disease. While it is true that qigong will often cure specific ills, this is not the primary reason for practice. It is not only a matter of adding years to your life, but life to your years." [Ken Cohen]

  I understand and acknowledge that Qigong is for general health and fitness only. I understand it is not physical therapy and does not replace and should not be substituted for prescribed physical therapy or other medical treatment. I will consult with, or have consulted with my doctor or other medical professional before I undertake the practice of Qigong.
