About Medical Qigong
The Healing Benefits of Medical Qigong are Exponential!
Why Medical Qigong?
Medical Qigong, a primary form of Oriental Medicine, is heralded around the world as a miracle medicine. The father of the more modern Acupuncture, Medical Qigong is sometimes referred to as Acupuncture without needles. It is a form of advanced energy medicine, which 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 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 another 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, but it will also expand your awareness of the extraordinary.
How to describe it, but a sense of awe...
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...
The "New" Yoga
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. Qigong 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.

When David was fifteen years old he was diagnosed with a severe spinal disease and told that he would be crippled by the time he was thirty years old. Unwilling to accept this fate, David began intensively studying Oriental Medicine, Medical Qigong, Martial Arts and Meditation.
David learned how to cultivate and direct the energetic life force called Chi in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through Qigong practice, David healed his spinal disease completely! David also found that his mood, his attitude, his outlook on life, and his intuition had all increased exponentially. He was drawn to teaching and sharing these healing practices and spiritual counsel with others.
David also has a vast Martial Arts background with Black Belts in Karate, Tae Kwon Do and Kenpo Karate. He has been an Instructor of Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Martial Arts. He has also studied Japanese Ju Jitsu, Kung Fu, Small Circle Ju Jitsu, Aikido, Chen Style Tai Chi, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Pen Jak Silat, Kendo and more..
David’s Qigong Practices are underpinned by his Psychology degree from the University of Connecticut and three years of experience as a Professional Counselor in Louisville,Colorado. He also spent three years at the University of Colorado studying Molecular and Cellular Biology to better understand the inner workings of the body on a cellular and biochemical level.
He has taught and lectured around the country to both lay people and professionals about the healing power of Qigong. David’s Qigong practices are now being practiced around the world. They are simple, effective and can be practiced by anyone at any age.
David Coon’s work has been of great benefit to me, both personally and professionally… Through his guidance, I have had a profound experience of energy surging through my body, which I describe as a river of energy that is difficult to put in words. I highly recommend David’s work to anyone seeking a life of greater health and well-being.
