VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION – What is Medical Qigong What is Qigong
Hi guys. David J. Coon with Qigong Awareness. I wanted to answer a question that’s also been asked recently. Got a lot of questions coming in for a lot of different things, so I’ve actually taken some time out to put out some of these videos. We’re going to put them on YouTube, we’re going to put them online. I’ll share with you guys some answers to some of these questions from our viewers.
So one of them is what is Medical Qigong, and what is the difference between Medical Qigong and Qigong? We get this question a lot as well. So in general, because I could tell you a whole story about it, right, an encyclopedia’s worth of information, so simply Medical Qigong is a form of primary Chinese medicine. So it’s a form of primary medicine over in China. It’s been around for 2,500 years, two thousand, five hundred years, which is quite a while, quite a long time. But the ancient practices of Qigong go back even further than that, 5,000 years plus. So Medical Qigong is rooted in Qigong practice. Qigong was like meditation practices, healing practices that these masters and sages were doing in the mountains and so on. Then various physicians started learning from some of these masters and sages, and they started bringing these healing techniques into the hospitals, into their clinics. It started to give birth to this thing called Chinese medicine.
In China, they have what are called medicineless hospitals. There’s no medicine prescribed there or given there. Literally people are coming in and having what are called qi healings. There’s so much I could say about this, but attempting to speak to it a little bit and maybe give you a taste and then come back another time, watch some other things, learn some other things, read some other things.
Medical Qigong works very much with what’s called the electromagnetic field, the energy field around a person’s body. Now the average person out there, some folks might say, “Well that’s foo-foo or that’s weird or whatever.” Here’s the thing, Western medicine, the only reason they can actually monitor your brain and your heart with things like an EKG for example or an echocardiogram to see what’s going on in your heart, is because they’ve actually scientifically discovered energy fields around the body, electromagnetic fields, and they’re actually able to work with those, and literally put it on a computer and read it.
In China, many of these master and teachers, and including right here in the United States, because I’ve been doing this for some years now, will actually sensate and feel these fields. These fields, again somewhat complicated but hopefully not too much for this basic answer here, these fields are connected to what we know as the acupuncture meridians. They’re also connected, these fields, to what we know,and some of us have heard of, called the seven chakras. So we have these seven chakras in these different locations on our body, which I just ran through there briefly, and all of that’s interconnected. For the last 30 years, I’ve been working on studying with various masters and sages and teachers and physicians, and I have become my own master over the years in learning how to heal and work with these energy fields.
Again, simple definition for now. There’s so much more to say, but simple definition. Qigong practice means the skilled cultivation of universal life force. If you have extra qi … There’s an old story about being the overflowing cup in China. Become the overflowing cup, the cup that overfloweth if through your practice, you have extra energy that makes you a very good Medical Qigong practitioner where you can send and transmit energy.
Then of course, there’s much more on many more levels of what we do with that. The modern acupuncture … Acupuncture is the more modern version of Medical Qigong. Medical Qigong is actually the father of acupuncture. So it is a profound discipline and there are literally miracles happening around the world, what some people would call miracles happening around the world, through this type of healing. So that’s the difference in general between Medical Qigong and Qigong practices. And again, if you want to be good at Medical Qigong, which we train people to do, your first education begins with becoming good at the practices of Qigong, the ancient Chinese exercises of breathing and mindfulness and movement and so on. So thanks for tuning in. Look forward to connecting with you more if we’re a match for you. All right. Thank you
