Medical Qigong is one of the oldest branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine, predating acupuncture by thousands of years.
As Qi is made up of Yin and Yang, a balance of Yin & Yang must be maintained to promote a good flow of healing Qi, this is done through disciplined practice.
When your Qi is imbalanced or stagnated you feel pain and if not treated can lead to further medical complications.
Medical Qigong uses a variety of techniques that guide and direct the Qi for health and healing, balancing and treatment of specific disorders (as listed below):-
Qigong Exercises – Qigong exercises combined with deep breathing are beneficial to the internal organs, bones & joints gently stretching and toning the body.
Stress Management – Meditation and Relaxation techniques to ease the mind and relieve stress, many of the techniques used in western medicine today have their roots in Qigong.
Sound Therapy – Specific sounds can purge stagnated energy from your internal organs.
Colour Therapy – Your internal organs resonate to the same frequency as five element colours for toning.
External Qi Healing – Qi is emitted from the healer to the client to give the clients own energy a boost clearing blockages and smoothing out any imbalances in the clients Qi thereby easing the pain.
Tui Na – Gently hand massage techniques are used to break up stagnated energy.
Moxibustion – Mugwart is burned over pain points on the body to inject pure heat energy into stagnations.
