Qigong is a combination of two ideas: Qi” (pronounced chee), means air, breath of life, or vital energy that flows through all things in the universe and Gong” (pronounced gung, as in lung) means the skill of working with, or cultivating, self-discipline and achievement. Together, Qigong means the skill of cultivating vital energy, or the ability to work with the electromagnetic energy of the body. The body is enveloped by Qi or electromagnetic currents, affecting both internal and external organ functions. As Qi is the fundamental energy that sustains life, it is present in every cell of the body.
Medical qigong, is one of the four main branches of Chinese medicine along with acupuncture, herbal medicine, and medical massage. Medical Qigong is the study of the energetic map of the body based on classical and alchemical Chinese Medicine as well as more traditional Chinese Medicine. Medical Qigong techniques can be practiced on oneself for self-cultivation or on others as healing protocols. Prescription exercises, meditations and healing protocols, enhance body, mind and spirit and can also address the energetics of specific disease patterns.
Following is a simplified list of the important things a medical qigong practitioner can do to help their client facilitate the healing process. The list consists of the client’s own self-practices and support from medical qigong and/or outside practitioners. Self-practice is an important part of a client taking responsibility for their own healing process and it also speeds up the work performed by outside sources. Assistance from outside sources is equally important, having an experienced ally in the healing journey makes the road smoother and faster!
