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.

Medical Qigong Workshop Testimonials

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.

“I was seeking a teacher with a genuine desire to share and guide in their knowledge and experiences. A teacher that exhibits true passion and dedication to the art of Qigong. Furthermore, someone who has a calm way of conveying, engaging and navigating all who are there in learning to cultivate Qi for oneself as well as to help others.”

In coming to this Medical Qigong Intensive, I was seeking a teacher with a genuine desire to share and guide in their knowledge and experiences. A teacher that exhibits true passion and dedication to the art of Qigong. Furthermore, someone who has a calm way of conveying, engaging and navigating all who are there in learning to cultivate Qi for oneself as well as to help others. It was a true pleasure to attend, meet and learn from David, a Qigong Master that embodies all the above mentioned. Will look forward to the next Qigong learning experience! With gratitude, Jeanie

“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.

“This seminar with David was amazing and enlightening!”

Not often do I attend a seminar for CEUS where I was so extremely engaged in the work being taught. David made it easy to embrace and let go. This seminar with David was amazing and enlightening! Would highly recommend it to anyone! He is a true gift to any participant.

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.

I am looking forward to the next class because this one has totally changed my life.

I walked away from this workshop feeling so empowered. I went home feeling grounded, strong and enlightened. I am a licensed acupuncturist and it has totally changed my practice. I am more present during the treatments and my intuition has expanded. I am looking forward to the next class because this one has totally changed my life.

“Who would this course be good for? Everyone!”

Who would this course be good for? Everyone! As an acupuncturist, I found it ideal. That said, you do not need to have ANY concept of Qi to take this course; if you simply believe your body has power, and your body has the capability to heal itself, then you’re ready to start. For beginners, this course will start you on the path of mastering your bodily functions by introducing you to Qi and providing you the daily tools and practices necessary to develop this ability. From there, it's up to you. For the seasoned one, there is still great knowledge to glean from this course. David's discussions on the endocrine system and glands, their importance and relation to the chakras, the kundalini, the overall tie to the Caduceus symbol - I could go on, but he probably wouldn't appreciate me divulging the entire course. Let's put it this way: If I equate this course to the trunk of a tree, now that the course is completed, I have at least 5 different branches or pathways to explore further that I did not have before. I greatly appreciate the tidbits of information David left along the way which opened this door. My cup is full and I will spend the next several weeks, months, years, and decades digesting its contents.

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.

The love and energy I felt during the two day workshop was extraordinary!

“Ever since the Hilton Head program, I've felt more calm and peaceful than in the past.  Even after hosting 4 large family gatherings these past 2 weeks! I've been SO thankful and pleasantly surprised for the peace I've felt in the midst of it all. The love and energy I felt during the two day workshop was extraordinary!”

It is an honor to have such a passionate and talented teacher come in at this point in my life.

I truly enjoyed attending David Coon’s Medical Qigong Intensive seminar in Westminster Colorado! I am an acupuncturist and have studied qigong before this weekend. I always felt like I had a lot of holes in my qigong training, and there were many things I did not understand. David did a wonderful job of explaining and demonstrating everything. I’ve walked away feeling like my understanding has grown a great deal.
It is an honor to have such a passionate and talented teacher come in at this point in my life. We had people from all walks of life in our class from healing professionals, to retired people, to people who work in the corporate world with no qigong experience. The exercises are simple enough for everyone. I can easily teach them to my clients, and also get a great deal out of doing them myself. I would highly recommend this seminar to anyone who is thinking about learning qigong! and also to anyone who has studied it for a long time!
