Medical Qigong Workshop Testimonials
“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!

I highly recommend Qigong awareness to anyone of any age looking for a better quality of life.
I've been around energy medicine for 35 years. As a Practitioner of Chinese medicine I've had the opportunity to study with many teachers. David Coon takes the lead in having mastered Qigong practices. His mastery extends to his ability to share his techniques and practices in simple to implement and use exercises and routines. I do 5 minutes in the morning to as much as a one hour practice. Sometimes I integrate the practices into my day. The results have amazed me. My physical endurance, inner calm, clarity and intuition are optimal. I highly recommend Qigong awareness to anyone of any age looking for a better quality of life. I am grateful for the privilege of having David Coon as a teacher.

“David Coon is a true teacher.”
David Coon is a true teacher. His thorough discussions were filled with valuable information. His explanations throughout the class were both relatable and one step ahead of any question that may have arisen as he was teaching. I have since started my own qi gong practice, and have implemented Medical Qigong into my Acupuncture Practice.

“As an acupuncturist, keeping up with CEU requirements is sometimes a chore… Not so with David’s Qigong workshop! From the first moment to the last I was engaged and fascinated.”
As an acupuncturist, keeping up with CEU requirements is sometimes a chore. On more than one occasion I’ve sat through droning presentations of rehashed information, just hoping for something useful, and watching the clock. Not so with David’s Qigong workshop! From the first moment to the last I was engaged and fascinated – with a hundred ideas running through my head of how to better help my patients. I know I have to cultivate my own practice first, but I’ve known that for a long time. After this seminar I finally feel like I have a starting place and a foundation that will help me prioritize my own practice and slowly evolve into a better practitioner for my patients. Thanks David!

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.

David is genuine and authentic, skilled and compassionate. It is a privilege to study with him.
I have been in practice in the alternative health field as a Doctor of Chiropractic focusing on Applied Kinesiology, Acupuncture and NET for 34 years and a Qi Gong student for 8 years. I highly recommend David Coon's workshops for anyone who is looking to deepen their understanding of Qi Gong, further their own personal inward journey and provide benefit to others through the techniques that he teaches so masterfully. David is genuine and authentic, skilled and compassionate. It is a privilege to study with him.

“The weekend intensive workshop that I attended in Raleigh provided me with the basics and enough real-time review to start my own Medical Qigong practice.”
Approximately 25% of my practice as a Licensed Acupuncturist is comprised of Military Vets who are faced with multiple physical, mental and emotional challenges. One of my goals for 2015 was to begin learning Medical Qigong to enhance my own practice, my focus, and energetic strength and to give my most challenging patients – VA Vets – another holistic, non-pharmaceutical tool to manage their physical, mental and emotional stress. The weekend intensive workshop that I attended in Raleigh provided me with the basics and enough real-time review to start my own Medical Qigong practice. I am looking forward to continuing my studies with David Coon.

“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.

Thanks to David, my story is now a story of healing, health, and prosperity.
I have been training with David for almost a year now. When David moved to Wilmington, I had been practicing Qigong sporadically for a month or so with an instructor who was in David’s certification program. Qigong seemed cool, but I had not had any previous experience with energy work and was, admittedly, skeptical. However, I had had breast cancer 3 times and was fed up with the options that Western medicine offered. I was overwhelmed with side effects and took a handful of pills a couple of times a day. When the cancer returned the third time, I was medical retired from the Army and my physical condition has deteriorated from being very physically fit to barely being able to walk a mile.
In the past year, I have trained with David in Qigong classes, Intensives, and private sessions, as well as participating in his healing clinics. Since beginning training, I have been able to stop taking 7 different prescription medications, lost 20 lbs., can run 5 miles, and am a certified Level 1 Qigong Instructor. The difference in my physical, emotional, and spiritual well being has been phenomenal. David is an amazing healer, instructor, and coach. My story for the past 8 years has been a story of cancer. Thanks to David, my story is now a story of healing, health, and prosperity.

David’s class brought me to a new level… that I have the power to transform myself and become a healing channel through this practice.
I participated in the “The Golden Dragon Medical Qi Gong Intensive with David this last weekend in Clearwater/St. Pete. It was a very transformative experience for me. David is a “True Master of Qigong” that has the desire to fully engage his students, taking a very personal interest in the development of each and every one. He is a gifted instructor with a thorough understanding of Qigong and the Martial Arts from many paths.
This weekend was very different; I have attended other Qigong seminars in the past. They left me disenchanted, overwhelmed and totally frustrated. I left these weekends without retaining anything from the class except a paper certificate stating that I had fulfilled my CEU requirements for yet another year.
David’s class brought me to a new level; “that I have the power to transform myself and become a healing channel through this practice.”
I realize; to appreciate the power of Qigong; it is an art that must be practiced daily to fully achieve success. David communicated the Qigong exercises and concepts in a way that I could understand and integrate the practice into my life and work. The way he led the class through the various exercises were clear and concise. The sessions were timed, organized and well balanced between informative experiential lectures and “hands-on” practical experience, reminding me that true Qigong is more than a technique or modality, it is a gift! David repeatedly expressed to “feel” the Qi; not just apply yet “another technique”. Techniques while very important; “without feeling the Qi you were an empty vessel; holding a needle.”
He truly left me inspired, with a desire to pursue a Qigong path. This has been one of the best programs I have attended as a continuing education seminar. The class should be mandatory for every student of acupuncture and life. It is a fulfilling experience; I honestly recommend his medical intensive for everyone to attend. I look forward to future workshops and continued practice.
