Qigong or chikung is a form of gentle exercise meant to increase the flow of liquid in the body by continuous stretching and deep breaths. One’s Qi is the life force of the body, responsible for keeping it alive, healthy and moving. Thus, the flow of Qi in the body is extremely important. According to Chinese knowledge, blocked Qi will result in weakness and illness. A strong flow of Qi in the body results health benefits and higher immune system. Despite the benefits, not many people practice nor know the benefits of qigong in Indonesia. Fortunately, there are still a number of qigong masters in Indonesia who are absolutely dedicated to their craft.
Here are the top 3 Qigong masters in Indonesia:
John Chang is perhaps the most famous Qigong master in Indonesia. A documentary of him burning paper with his bare hands and emitting electricity from his stomach created a sensation during the 80s. Western scientists have tried to analyze his abilities.
At first, John Chang would only let the camera crew film him with the condition that the film will not be circulated. However, his documentary was widespread as soon as it was done. Just as the video became a sensation and he began to be widely known, Chang vanished from the public eye. Even the film’s crews were not successful in finding him. Until this day, there are not many people who can say they have successfully met him as his exact address is still shrouded in mystery.
