The healing power of medical qigong

Medical Qigong (pronounced ‘chi gung’) is a powerful Chinese system of health and healing that strengthens and harmonizes the individual at all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Based on the same principles as acupuncture, Medical Qigong helps balance the flow of vital energy along the meridians and organs of the body.

What is Medical Qigong used for:

Medical qigong is used as a restorative therapy for a variety of conditions, including insomnia, stress or anxiety; fatigue or low energy; sexual and reproductive health issues and other chronic conditions that impact health and well-being. It can also be used as an adjunct therapy to help recover from surgery or other intensive medical interventions. Finally, medical qigong can also benefit those individuals who are generally healthy but desire to maximize their strength, fitness and vitality.

Medical qigong:

• Relaxes your mind and body
• Improves the flow of energy
• Boosts your immune system
• Helps to relieve pain or chronic muscle tension
• Nourishes your emotions and spiritual well being
• Provides a feeling of calm, comfort, balance and rejuvenation

What to Expect in a Typical Session:

A typical session involves the use of healing techniques that are natural, non-invasive and gentle. You will be lying relaxed on a massage table while I use light touch to activate acupuncture points to open up blocked energy centers, organs or meridians.

After the session, I may also recommend take-home exercises designed to help you access and utilize your own healing abilities to build your nervous and immune system and to achieve optimal health and well-being.
