Medical Qigong therapy session
Medical Qigong therapy is the eldest therapeutic modality of Chinese medicine. It is a comprehensive system of health care addressing the root cause of symptoms or disease, and treats the client as a whole.
Qigong Therapy is a method of healing and a unique approach to wellness that has been perfected and practiced for thousands of years. It embraces the fundamental inter-relationship of body, mind, spirit, emotions and energy and is part of the family of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Qigong Therapy professionals employ the same energy channels used by acupuncturists, only without needles and help clients heal by re-balancing energy channels of the body that may have been adversely affected by disease, injury, stress, mental, emotional or spiritual trauma.
A Medical Qigong session is one hour. Initial sessions may be longer.
At this time the practitioner makes observations to determine the physical, emotional, and energetic condition of the client. Based on this information the practitioner will design a treatment protocol.
The practitioner often works about a foot away from the client's body, and sometimes lightly touches
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 the treatments extremely relaxing and rejuvenating. Sometimes clients may become aware of uncomfortable emotions that have been suppressed and have an emotional release either during or after the treatment.
After the treatment the client will be given Qigong prescriptions to assist in their ongoing healing. These Medical Qigong exercises and meditations are tailored specifically to the clients, similar to an acupuncturist prescribing healing herbs or a medical doctor giving a pharmaceutical prescription.
