SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center to Host Eight-Week Qigong Class

SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center is excited to announce it is hosting an eight-week Qigong class for cancer patients and survivors. The class will meet every Wednesday, starting May 3 through June 21, at 5:30 PM at the Regional Cancer Center, 3535 Bell School Road, Rockford.

Qigong is an ancient Chines health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intervention. The gentle, rhythmic movements of Qigong reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality and enhance the immune system. It has also been found to improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory and digestive functions.

The class will be taught by local instructor, Nancy Mayhew. Nancy specializes in teaching individuals with a current or past cancer diagnosis. Cost for the eight-week session is $50. Registration is required. Call SwedishAmerican Health Connect at (779) 696-7081, option 1.
