Medial Qi Gong
Medical Qi Gong is a modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Qi means “life-force energy” and Gong means “skill”, so Qi Gong (pronounced Chee Gong) is the skillful practice of gathering, circulating, and applying life-force energy for various kinds of benefit. Rather than using needles, herbs, or massage, medical qi gong relies on the ability to direct qi with the mind, the hands, or a ritual object, but without necessarily touching the body.
Medical Qi Gong cultivates and redistributes the vitality or “qi” of an individual. This is the same way that acupuncture and other TCM modalities work. The principles of treatment are the same, only the technique varies. Medical Qi Gong is well suited for highly sensitive people, children, and people in frail health, but can be beneficial for absolutely anyone. Medical qi gong involves working directly and subtly with a person’s qi, and it is more gentle than acupuncture, acupressure, or herbology. Medical qi gong can be used to treat many subtle and spiritual
conditions that cannot be treated with acupuncture, acupressure, or herbology.
All living bodies generate an external field of energy called Wei Qi (Pronounced “why chee”), which translates as “protective energy.” The definition of Wei Qi in Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM), Chinese Energetic Medicine, or Medical Qi Gong, is slightly different than that of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In Medical Qi Gong, the Wei Qi field includes the surface of the body, circulating within tendon and muscle as well as the body’s auric and subtle energy fields. This energy originates from each of the internal organs and radiates through the external tissues. There the Wei Qi forms an energy field that radiates from the from the entire physical body. This field of Qi protects the body from the invasion of external pathogens and communicates with, as well as interacts with, the surrounding universal and environmental energy fields.
Medical Qi Gong consists of specific techniques that use the knowledge of the body’s internal and external energy fields to purge, tonify, and balance these energies. Medical Qi Gong therapy offers patients a safe and effective way to rid themselves of toxic pathogens and years of painful emotions that otherwise, can cause mental and physical illness and dis-ease. This therapy combines breathing techniques with movement, creative visualization, and spiritual Intention to improve health, personal power, and control over one’s own Life.
