Widely understood in China but little known in the U.S., Medical QiGong (chee-gong) is a modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that involves affecting and directing Qi, or the life force, for various kinds of benefit. Rather than using needles, herbs, or massage, Medical QiGong relies on the ability to direct Qi with the mind, the hands, or a ritual object, but without necessarily touching the body. To develop skill with Medical QiGong, a practitioner needs to be highly disciplined, with a very focused mind and unusual abilities of subtle perception. Ideally, a Medical QiGong practitioner should also be a skilled medical intuitive in order to make the most accurate diagnosis as well as treatment. Any practitioner’s treatment is only as good as his or her diagnosis.
cultivates and redistributes the vitality or “Qi” of an individual. Medical Qigong is well suited for highly sensitive people, children, and people in frail health, but can be beneficial for absolutely anyone. Medical Qigong involves working directly and subtly with a person’s Qi in preferably an ethical manner, and it is more gentle than other Chinese medical disciplines like acupuncture, acupressure, or herbology.
Who Can Benefit From
Medical Qigong has been used successfully to treat a wide variety of difficult, stubborn, and life-threatening conditions that do not respond well to other types of medicine. Medical Qigong has attained a reputation for being an alternative to the typically brutal treatment for cancer, as an example. Children, the elderly, people in frail health, and highly sensitive people tend to respond better to Medical Qigong than other TCM modalities. There are protocols for diseases such as fibromyalgia, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, vertigo, migraines and sinusitis but the list goes on and on to include cancers of all varieties.
If you are looking for a modality of healing that is not compromised by the understandings of Western Medicine, does not use needles, and is extremely effective at finding the root cause of your disease down to the emotional or spiritual formation, Medical QiGong is for you.
