Medical Qigong

Medical Qigong

P1 – March 4-6, 2016

Light-through-treeMedical Qigong is an ancient form of Chinese energetic medicine, and is one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), along with acupuncture, herbal medicine, and medical massage. Medical qigong is a complete system of medicine that recognizes the root causes of symptoms or disease, and treats the patient as a whole.

As with the other “Branches” of TCM, healing occurs through balancing qi or electromagnetic energy which surrounds and pervades all living creatures. The goal of the Medical Qigong Practitioner is to correct these bio-energetic imbalances and blockages. This enables the body to strengthen and regulate the internal organs, the nervous system and the immune system, relieve pain, regulate hormones, and strengthen and release deep-seated emotions and stress. By mastering the skills to affect the different levels of the energetic world, the students learn to create apowerful ability to  heal many diseases.
