It's basically the name for various Chinese systems of meditation and energy cultivation (qi). I've seen you post regarding schizophrenia if this is what you have then I would suggest against you doing qigong. Qigong is bad for mental disorders simply because it is a very introspective practice and can lead to various problems if your mind is in disarray. If you decide to do this make sure you learn qigong from a qualified instructor. Best bet is to see a chinese medical practitioner and ask for referals at the same time while fully disclosing to them your health issues.
