Guolinxinqigong (GLXQG) is a form of medical Qigong, based on the ancient Qigong practice with reform and innovation, combined with modern Chinese medicine theory. A lot of research and practitioners have proved that GLXQG has had therapeutic effect on cancer recovery and treatment of various chronic diseases.
