From the history of the development of traditional Chinese medicine, Chinese medical doctors have attached great importance to Qigong.
Not only is there a discussion of Qigong in his works, but many famous doctors are also qigong practitioners.
For example, Zhang Zhongjing, a famous doctor in the Han Dynasty, said in his book “The Golden Chamber”: “The limbs are severely stagnation, that is, guiding spitting, acupuncture and moxibustion, and not letting the nine sputum occlusion.”
The “guided spitting” mentioned here is a method of Qigong.
The famous “Five Birds Play” is said to have been created by the famous doctor Hua Tuo of the Han Dynasty. It has been passed down to today and is still loved by Qigong lovers.

In the “Essence of Eight Classics” written by Li Shizhen, a famous medical scientist in the Ming Dynasty, he pointed out: “The inner tunnel, but the returning viewer can inspect it.”
This means that the body’s meridian changes can be perceived during the practice of a certain static work.
The famous Wen Xue scholars in the Qing Dynasty, Ye Tianshi and Wu Yutong, all have practice and discussion of Qigong.
In the book “Medical Hearts in the West” written by Zhang Xichun, a famous doctor in modern times, there is also a chapter devoted to Qigong, and he points out that the medical practitioner should participate in meditation.

The results of Qigong practice also provide new content for Chinese medicine. For example, the Ming Dynasty medical scientists Li Shizhen and Zhang Jingyue respectively analyzed the system of Qijing Bamai and Dantian’s life gate theory, which is based largely on the practice of Qigong.of.
Qigong emphasizes the use of ideas and complements and develops the theory of Chinese medicine and emotional theory.
