How Qigong Aids In Recovery From Addiction

Once you’ve accepted that you’re addicted to a dangerous substance, you might be willing to try anything to treat your addiction. One alternative healing method you could come across during your journey to health is qigong, a holistic treatment method that focuses on body posture, movement, breathing and meditation. The treatment is typically used for spirituality, health and martial arts training.

What Is Qigong?

Qigong has its roots in Chinese medicine, martial arts and philosophy. It’s typically seen as a way to balance your “chi,” which translates to “life energy.” Ancient Buddhist, Confucian and Taoist philosophers believe qigong allows its users to reach greater levels of awareness and develop their true potential. They claim the practice can awaken a person’s “true nature.”

The practice usually centers around deep, rhythmic breathing and includes meditation and coordination exercises to induce a calm state of mind. It’s used for exercise, recreation, relaxation, self-cultivation and martial arts training. It can also be used to treat addiction and promote self-healing.

Qigong Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Qigong addiction treatment can help people see themselves for who they really are underneath their addiction. It contributes to addiction treatment by stabilizing mood, improving self-esteem, increasing clarity and focus, developing emotional sobriety, restoring physical health, giving meaning to life, battling boredom and helping to build a new social network.

The benefits of qigong in addiction recovery have been proven time and time again. Most of the success is directly related to the meditation aspect of qigong. One study found that people with an addiction who tried qigong meditation had a 92% completion rate, versus the 78% completion rate for people who focused primarily on stress management and relaxation training.

Overall, qigong is a healthy activity addicts can practice and enjoy in place of their vice.
