Shibashi, also known as "18 movements qigong", is a type of qigong that consists of a series of eighteen gentle, flowing movements that are designed to improve the flow of qi in the body, promote balance and coordination, and enhance physical and mental well-being.

Shibashi was developed in the 1970s by a qigong master named Professor Lin Hou Sheng, who combined elements of traditional Chinese qigong with principles of modern sports science. The movements are performed slowly and gracefully, with a focus on deep breathing and relaxation.

Shibashi is often used as a form of exercise and stress reduction, and has been shown to have a positive effect on physical health markers such as blood pressure and cholesterol levels, as well as mental health markers such as anxiety and depression. It is also suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels.
