The promotion of mind-body, health-wellness practices demand ongoing consideration by health professionals as more individuals are seeking alternative therapies and Eastern spiritual practices for their health and wellness needs.

Falun Gong presents as one such mind-body Eastern meditative spiritual cultivation practice that is gaining worldwide popularity, although knowledge of its effects, potential use in counseling and health-wellness promotion is still lacking.

This research provides a world-wide demographic profile (excluding mainland China) of Falun Gong practitioners.

It presents the health-wellness effects of Falun Gong as perceived by Falun Gong practitioners, compared with individuals who do not practice Falun Gong.

Findings show that people who practice Falun Gong have more positive and optimistic perceptions of their health. They report a better health-wellness status than those who do not practice Falun Gong.

Overall, findings from the doctoral study support Falun Gong as a beneficial mind-body, health-wellness spiritual cultivation practice.
