The development of modern medicine has prolonged people's average life span, but the daily allergic reaction, depression, etc., make many people suffer. In view of the experience of psychiatric nursing I happen to think about the cure process of a disease. Taking the qigong therapy and psychology as the basis, through the exchange of therapies of acupuncture, digital pressure, and the whole body, the preventive medicine based on the integration of traditional and modern medicine has been developed. Depending on self capacity qi and blood circulation can be strengthened, thus healthy psychosomatic condition is attained.

Operation: Quiet qigong (relaxation, in standing posture); dynamic qigong (movement towards 6 directions). In the initial stage, relax oneself entirely, qi feeling varies in individuals. Tempo, time of the exercises are determined by one's physical condition.

The theory of qigong is the essence of traditional Chinese medicine. (Man is the miniature of the universe). It is an integrated body from molecules to space. We must attach the significance between man and universe. Diseases are caused by disturbance of qi. Qi is the fundamental energy of man. The characteristics of qigong lie in its persistent practice. The nursing staff must be friendly to patients. They should have calm minds, control their emotional activity. Give others love and sympathy. Absorb power from the 'doctor-patient” harmony.
