How old is Qigong?
How old is China? As far back as records go, there is evidence of Qigong. The Yellow Emperor 2697 - 2597BC is attributed with the book called Nei Jing Su Wen.
This medical book describes regular Qigong practise to maintain health and longevity. The famous Chinese physician Hua Tuo, who died in 208AD was also quoted to recommend Qigong exercises for health.
A Han Dynasty tomb dated from 206BC - 9 AD, unearthed in Mawangdui, contained a silk scroll showing Qigong type movements.
Dao An, who lived 312- 385 AD was a devout Daoist who later translated the Buddhist scriptures in to Chinese. He is the attributed founder of the Wild Goose Qigong system.
