Medical Qigong For Back Pain

Medical Qigong for alleviating Low Back Pain, Mid Back Pain & Upper Back Pain!

Medical Qigong For Back Pain is a 2-day hands-on workshop with David J. Coon, Medical Qigong Master. Learn to cultivate Qi and direct this Qi for alleviating back pain. You will learn three different Medical Qigong Treatment flows to address Low Back Pain, Mid Back Pain and Upper Back & Neck Pain. You will be able to directly incorporate these teachings into your private Acupuncture or Massage Practice. These teachings can bring another dimension to your Treatments that will exponentially increase your patient’s healing results.

It is becoming more of a well-known fact that the mind, body and spirit are not separate. By bringing greater awareness combined with the power of intention to the body we create the possibility for deep healing to occur. Quantum physicists are scientifically demonstrating that everything is made up of energy and that with our minds we have the power to influence it. In this workshop you will learn vital tools and exercises for invoking profound healing of mind, body and spirit.

In this intensive, you will learn both Qigong Exercises to teach your clients/students and Medical Qigong Techniques to support the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Our students have both healed their own conditions and exponentially increased their patients’ healing results using Qigong.

  • Learn Medical Qigong Exercises
    To Teach Clients to Assist in Their Healing
  • Learn Medical Qigong Techniques To Treat Clients
  • Learn To Incorporate Medical Qigong Treatments Into Your Acupuncture or Massage Practice
  • Observe Medical Qigong Treatment Flow Demonstrations
  • Practice Giving and Receiving Medical Qigong Treatments

“David’s Medical Qigong Intensive workshop was superb!”

David’s Medical Qigong Intensive workshop was superb! He was extremely skilled at being able to communicate concepts and ideas with insight and clarity. The activities he chose were very helpful and allowed each person to grow from their current place of understanding and level of skill. I personally came away from the workshop with a much greater depth of understanding that will inform my personal and professional practice. A couple of ‘nuggets’ have already resulted from applying some of his suggestions. I heartily recommend this.

“It was by far the most powerful and life changing course I have taken”

It was by far the most powerful and life changing course I have taken. My practice is already completely different in just the first day. And, my city must have got the memo because my clinic is 25% fuller this week than ever before. Thank you again for the service that both of you provide!

You will learn at a deeper level than you thought possible.

David is tremendously talented and is a true master of himself and healing.  He is one of the most genuine people I have ever met and that shines through in his teachings.  I recently attended one of his live workshops that was "intense" in every way, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  I highly recommend that you connect with David to experience his essence and presence.  You will learn at a deeper level than you thought possible.

“I can best describe my experience at the Medical Qigong Intensive with three words: Acceptance! Energy! Peace!”

I can best describe my experience at the Medical Qigong Intensive with three words: Acceptance! Energy! Peace! The experience created an atmosphere of full acceptance so that I, as a lay person, was accepted as a peer by the other participants who were all experienced practitioners of alternative healing therapies. Had I not seen and felt it for myself, I’m not sure I could have believed in the existence of so much energy which exists around us, between us and within us, and can be channeled for healing, daily living, and peace. I am a retired speech therapist who worked in very difficult environments in which at various times my physical being was in danger, and much toxic energy was constantly present. As a result, I have carried that energy with me into retirement. I learned many techniques to help me to begin to cleanse my body of the toxic energy and replace it with Chi. Had I had those skills at the beginning of my practice, I am sure my life would be much different now. I am beginning to feel Peace not felt previously. At the close of the session, I set a year goal which I was not convinced I could meet. With the energy I feel at this point already, I am nearly one-sixth of my way to that goal after just four sessions!

Thank you David and Tanya for allowing me to participate in the session.

I also believe connect with Mr. Coon will benefit people suffering from chronic disease and/or unknown illness.

"To meet NCCAOM recertification requirement,  I need to take some
classes. When I saw Mr. Coon’s online Qigong class “The ultimate mind
body medicine”, I was skeptical what I could learn from a hand on
Qigong practice online? After I followed the video instruction, I was
surprised on Mr. Coon’s teaching techniques and experiences. Without
any asian culture background, he makes the qigong so easy to
understand and follow. It is hard to believe the knowledges and
concepts he has regarding Chinese medicine, qigong and philosophy are
100% accurate; even the words he quoted during the class refer to the
Buddha's teaching also 100% accurate. He is a genius.

During the class he has mentioned about the distance healing.  Again
this is something hard to believe and proof. I like to share this
remarkable phenomenon with you. I had asked Mr. Coon about the
limitation of qigong practice at day & night. He wrote back to me at
8:07 AM on August 12 ; I wrote to him at 8:36 AM the same morning;
then he responded to me at 8:41 AM right away. During 8:36 AM to 8:41
AM that same morning I felt Mr. Coon was in front of me and our chi
was connected, even though I did not know where he was. It is hard to
describe. But it was simple, I was in his mind and his thought. Mind
is Chi; Chi is mind; When you are focused and concentrated, chi goes
to where your mind goes; Especially when you are in deep meditation,
you are thinking someone in other continental, your chi also will
reach there too. As your meditation progress, the distance healing
power and psychic power will start to develop. I believe Mr. Coon has
these powers. I also believe connect with Mr. Coon will benefit people
suffering from chronic disease and/or unknown illness.

“This was the best workshop I’ve ever been to.”

This was the best workshop I’ve ever been too.  I am so glad I was there, I learned so much.  It was so enjoyable and transformative really.  The manuals are such high quality, better than anything I’ve gotten at other things. Qigong is new to me but I plan to make it part of my life.  Thank you for everything.

“David is a monument to his own mastery, and his commitment to practicing and teaching medical Qigong may very well effect in this country a resurrection of a much neglected branch of Chinese Medicine.”

I recently participated in a weekend Medical Qigong Intensive with David Coon, and I returned to my practice full of life force and eager to assimilate my experience into my treatment approach.  The sessions were well organized and well balanced between informative and hands-on, reminding us that true Qigong is something quite beyond exercise!  I look forward to future workshops. David is a monument to his own mastery, and his commitment to practicing and teaching medical Qigong may very well effect in this country a resurrection of a much neglected branch of Chinese Medicine. We here in North Carolina are fortunate to have David and Tanya now in our area.

“I cannot say enough about this class- TAKE IT!!!”

The Golden Dragon Medical Qi Gong Intensive was a transformative experience- both during the class and in the months since. The qi gong practices that David teaches have been profoundly healing for myself and helpful for my acupuncture practice. I have seen a huge difference in my ability to calm and center myself since using the Medical Qigong Techniques. The class setting was healing and safe, which allowed for some incredible healing to take place amongst the participants, and David guided us the whole way.

I cannot say enough about this class- TAKE IT!!!

For me, this ‘Father of Acupuncture’ has already had a very deep impact and has taken my already successful 20+ year Massage practice to the next level of healing.

For any Therapist or Practitioner feeling stuck or unsure about which direction that they want their practice headed, this (Medical Qi Gong) may be the perfect solution. For me, this 'Father of Acupuncture' has already had a very deep impact and has taken my already successful 20+ year Massage practice to the next level of healing. I highly recommend David's teaching style and this Energy infused ancient art of cultivating Chi and using it for yourself and others.

“David is one of those rare teachers who has the charisma and capacity to empower his students… I walked away with a renewed commitment to Qi Gong as a powerful medicine.”

Being in David Coon's Medical Qigong class was an enlivening and fortifying experience. for me.  The practices taught were simple yet powerful. I returned to my life to find my way to the inner energy core of the exercises he shared with us. I particularly loved the integrity with which David teaches. He physically manifests a high mastery of Martial Arts and Qi Gong. He did not try to make us learn what he did but encouraged us to find our own way to our own practice.

David is one of those rare teachers who has the charisma and capacity to empower his students to encounter and channel their own power.  I walked away with a renewed commitment to Qi Gong as a powerful medicine. I renewed a connection in my own mind to practice regularly.  Before I practiced but sporadically. David's passion made it clear to me that practice every day is as important as brushing my teeth or eating every day.  A veil lifted and a strong sense of commitment rooted. It started with experiencing the power of standing posture. I understood power is revealed as you practice every day.

David guided me in his explanation to allow the inner transformation of energy to release tensions and allow heightened energy to move through my body from the earth through my brain. I am inspired by his commitment to his practice and I am running with that transmission. I am grateful and will return to study with him again. It was a joy to receive my 15 CEU's. I learned things that could assist my patients to heal and help me grow into a clearer human being.

Medical Qigong For Back Pain – Text from video at top of page

Speaker 1: … practices, I am going to teach you how to take people up energetically. And I am going to teach you how to change their mood energetically.

Speaker 1: … push exhale. And then sweeping this way. And pull.

Speaker 1: Watching your balance. Getting lost in the thought of your practice. Everything is becoming about your practice. You’re obsessed with the movements. You’re obsessed with yourself. You’re obsessed with your hand. You’re obsessed with your chi.

Speaker 1: … combination of what I did. I wouldn’t have got it if I just hovered the hand. It would have took longer. Just a little touch here, a little touch here, a little in the middle so I went that side, this side and the middle. Then I hovered, and then right away she started to want to breathe there. It’s just talking to that third chakra.

Speaker 1: So do you see how she’s breathing here? But not really breathing here, this area that you were trying to open? So then come here, light touch, one finger. Yes, then light touch this side. One finger or two. Then come light finger, right in the middle. Solar plexus. And hover your hand again. Really relaxed hand, just hover it. Real relaxed.

Speaker 1: … the beginning and Melissa was talking about the contraction she was feeling, how it was like more and more intense. People feel waves of contraction when you’re doing the energetic work. It’s making them contract, and then it’s making them expand, and it’s making contraction, then expanding. The contraction part can get pretty, you know, uncomfortable for some people and they’re like, okay. Once they get more expansion then they’re comfortable with it then they’re like, oh this works awesome. But until then the contraction can be uncomfortable.

Speaker 1: You may have a strong will and determination but in the face of what? This is the question. And so right now what’s rising, and by the way this happens for every human being on the soul journey. You have time periods of your life that are more difficult. And of course you want them to go away. You want to get rid of them. Some of you may be in the phase right now, where life is pretty good, maybe fairly smooth. Others, it’s tumultuous right now, it’s very difficult, it’s one of the hardest times you ever had in your life. And so on. So the soul goes through those experiences. You’d be wise to learn qigong in any one of those phases.

Speaker 1: Then you’re less influenced by negativity. Because you’re bigger. So, those of you that have been students of mine for a while know this. My teaching to you is the bigger wave. So when you say, how do I not take on somebody else’s negativity? Be the bigger wave. When I come to a healing session, and I deal with clients who have these problems and they’re suffering, and they have this, and they have that, and they have the other thing. How do I deal with it? Be the bigger wave.
