Medical Qigong is the specialized skill of applying Qigong principles within the theory and diagnostic parameters of Chinese Medicine.
The oldest therapeutic modality of Chinese Medicine, Medical Qigong is a holistic approach to healing and addresses symptoms as well as the cause of disease.
Medical QiGong is an ancient form of Chinese energetic medicine. It is one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), along with acupunture, herbal medicine, and medical massage. As with the other "Branches" of TCM, healing occurs through balancing Qi or electromagnetic energy which surrounds and pervades all living creatures.
Disruptions in the electromagnetic energy of the body occur throughout our lifetime as a result of poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, injuries, surgery, suppression of emotions and aging. The goal of Qigong is to correct these bio-energetic imbalances and blockages. This enables the body to strengthen and regulate the internal organs, the nervous system & the immune system, relieve pain, regulate hormones, and strengthen and release deep-seated emotions and stress.
Medical QiGong is a complete system of health care that treats the client as a whole.
Medical QiGong is an excellent adjunct to Western medicine.
In practicing complementary and alternative medicine, we seek to support the care of your existing physician, therapist or acupuncturist.
