Qigong Healing and Treatment
Qigong is a holistic and natural treatment option that helps to activate and circulate Qi throughout your body—promoting balance and healing.
Blockages in your body disrupt the flow of Qi, which affects specific bodily functions and causes illness. This understanding is what helped ancient Qigong masters develop the theories upon which Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) was founded, and techniques developed to balance Qi.
As you practice Qigong, or receive Qigong therapy, you’ll see many benefits, which may include:
A greater sense of overall calm and relaxation
Healing of various ailments
An increase in energy
Improved balance of mind, body, and spirit
Improved immune and digestive system
Better sleep and a calmer mind
What to Expect During a Medical Qigong Treatment
Qi can pass through air and clothing, so there’s no need to disrobe for a Medical Qigong treatment. The practitioner often works about a foot away from the client's body, and sometimes lightly touches the client to guide and manipulate the movement of Qi. The client may feel varying sensations as the Qi moves, such as warmth, tingling, coolness, vibration, and sometimes twitching as the stagnant energy releases.
Generally, clients find Qigong treatments relaxing and rejuvenating. However, some clients may become aware of uncomfortable emotions that they’ve suppressed and may experience an emotional release either during or after the treatment. Since one of the primary goals of Medical Qigong therapy is to release toxic emotions from the body's tissues, having an emotional release is nothing to fear. It’s actually beneficial to one's psychological and physiological well-being.
After a treatment, clients are given Qigong prescriptions to assist in their ongoing healing. These prescriptions could include Medical Qigong exercises and meditations that are tailored specifically to each client, similar to an acupuncturist prescribing healing herbs or a medical doctor giving a pharmaceutical prescription.
