Qigong is the new yoga. It is becoming more popular around the world because of its amazing healing benefits.

Unlike some kinds of yoga, Qigong can be practiced by almost anyone at any age and physical ability. Qi

gong Exercises emphasize the breath and conscious movement. Over 70% of the toxins in your blood are removed through your exhalation. The problem with modern living is that the majority of us are holding our breath due to stress and not moving enough.

Qigong Exercise is a form of preventative medicine that helps to detoxify your blood and nullify the ill effects of stress. Qigong offers healing for an array of different aches and pains like headaches, back pain, stomach pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel, and more…

Qigong can help us manage the emotional side of stress, as well as allowing us to decompress at the end of the day or energize ourselves in the morning before an important meeting. Qigong Instructors are, and will continue to be, in high demand around the country and beyond. Hospitals, healing centers, retreat centers, gyms, yoga studios, and private corporations are now offering Qigong Classes and need Certified Qigong Instructors.

A Certified Qigong Instructor may also promote and teach their own classes. A popular model with low overhead is to offer a Saturday morning Qigong Class at a park. You can also rent a space by the hour to teach a weekly class indoors.

Medical Qigong Practitioner Training Program – 300 hours in total

Certified Medical Qigong Practitioner Training Program

Medical Qigong is being heralded around the world as a miracle medicine. Medical Qigong is a primary form of Oriental Medicine. It is the father of the more modern Acupuncture. Medical Qigong is sometimes referred to as Acupuncture without needles and is a form of advanced energy medicine. Medical Qigong involves both hands off and hands on healing techniques. A Medical Qigong Practitioner is highly skilled in Qigong practice.

Qigong literally means the skilled practice of gathering universal life force or chi. In the East, it is believed that one has the ability to gather exponential amounts of this universal life force energy. Once a Qigong practitioner has learned to harness this energy, he/she can also direct it, for the purpose of healing self and/or others. The more skill one has in working with their own energy system, the more proficiency they have in working with other people’s energy systems.

Human beings are not completely physical, but are rather made up of subtle energy fields and particles. A Medical Qigong Practitioner can sense a client’s energy field and begin to decipher any anomalies in that field that might be obstructing the chi flow. When the chi becomes blocked in the blood, the lymph, the organs, and/or the meridians, then this sets the stage for accelerated aging and disease. The Medical Qigong Practitioner senses the obstruction in the chi flow and directs healing energy to release the blockage. Once this blockage is released, then the chi moves once again like a flowing river, and then the body can heal itself.

If you are a licensed Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist, Chiropractor, or other healing practitioner, Medical Qigong provides you with an amazing continuing education opportunity. Not only will Medical Qigong reignite your passion for healing and working with others, it will also expand your awareness of the extraordinary.

“How to describe it, but a sense of awe…” “Wonderment…” “Deep gratitude…”

Medical Qigong easily incorporates into your current healing practice, and is also a powerful stand-alone healing modality.

It is known for helping the body to heal itself of an array of health conditions including back pain, neck pain, headaches, joint pain, broken bones, post surgery recovery, menstrual pain, fertility issues, arthritis, scoliosis, digestive issues, anxiety, depression, fatigue, general pain, hypertension, chronic fatigue, emotional trauma, stress, PTSD, and more…

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

If I sign up for Level I: QI-50, do I still need to purchase two additional 15 hour intensives? If you have taken Qigong Awareness Medical Qigong intensives with us previously all of them will count towards your future Qigong Instructor Certification Trainings. If you have taken one Online Medical Qigong  Intensive  and one Live Medical Qigong Intensive for example (15 hours each) both would count for 30 of your 50 required hours toward certification. The extra 20 hours will be accumulated through practice and homework hours. If you have not taken any of our Medical Qigong Intensives yet we do recommend that you sign up for the certification program first so that you will receive course packet and discount promo codes for Medical Qigong Live Intensives.

The order that you sign up for things is completely up to you.

Should I sign up for Level I: QI-50, Online Medical Qigong Intensive, or the Live Medical Qigong Intensive first? The order is completely up to you. If you know for certain that you want to take the Level I: QI-50, Qigong Instructor certification program then I recommend signing up for that first so that you will already know the big picture of what is expected of you (the course packet gives you all documented hour sheets that you can begin completing right away) plus there are promo codes for discounts on Medical Qigong Live Intensives. Having said that if you are at all uncertain then we recommend starting with the Medical Qigong Online Intensive or the Medical Qigong Live Intensive. If you are able to make it to a Medical Qigong Live Intensive, we highly recommend it, since this is where the magic really happens!

What if I have already taken three 15 unit Medical Qigong Live Intensives with you? That’s great! You have already met the 30 unit requirement towards Level I: QI-50, Qigong Instructor certification program. So, you would only need to complete the 20 hours of documented practice. Then once you complete Level I: QI-50, Qigong Instructor certification program, then you will be ready to take Level II: QI-100 and you will already have met 15 units towards that program. So you would only need to complete one more 15 unit intensive and 20 hours of documented practice.

What if I want to take your entire program all 300 hours? Is there a discount? We would love for you to take our entire Medical Qigong Practitioner & Qigong Instructor Certification Programs. At this time we are not offering additional discounts on the entire program. We do offer a discount when you prepay for each of the levels. We also offer discounts off of live intensives and our online courses.
