Abstract: It tries to present various perspectives on the value that Qigong brings to the Western world, responding to medical, creative and spiritual needs, and proposes a cultural approach to its dissemination that can encompass all its facets. In the current growth of China's soft power and the implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative, there is a clear opportunity for the development of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Qigong abroad that shall bear fruit in the near future, gradually shifting the role of China in the world stage: from a manufactured products supplier to a major influence in culture, lifestyle and thought.
