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

“Going to this seminar was exactly what I needed.”

Going to this seminar was exactly what I needed.  It gave me Medical Qi Gong knowledge that I was able to use confidently right away for myself and for my patients.  The workshop also confirmed some of the practices I was already doing which only strengthens my confidence.  I loved learning all of the Qi Gong movements and exercises because running a busy practice can easily deplete me of Qi!  Doing these exercises grounds me and gives me the boost I need very quickly, and I love teaching them to my patients.  Thank you David for a great workshop that was all in all so revitalizing!  I know my Kidney and Wei Qi were very happy too!

“Best CEU class I have ever taken!

"Best CEU class I have ever taken! David's knowledge and insight changed my life and fed my soul!

Arlee Roman, LAc - Jupiter, FL April 2, 2019

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 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.

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.

It is hard for me to express exactly what I’m feeling but this course resonated with me on a much deeper level…

Thank you!

It is hard for me to express exactly what I'm feeling but this course resonated with me on a much deeper level than "Alchemizing Stress". The energy was more palpable and the philosophy combined with technique application was tangible. Maybe it's because of the lesson. Maybe it is because Qigong is now more a part of my everyday life. Maybe because of something else. Maybe all of the above.

Again, my words fail me at this point to truly express on what I can only describe as what I feel or taste. They do not however elude me so much that they do allow me to say a heartfelt "Thank You!". 🙂

“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!

Dr. Rhiannon Hutton, DC, MAOM, LAc www.MeridianExerciseTherapy.com Fayetteville, NC October 11, 2016

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.

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.
