Acupuncturists & Massage Therapists Earn 15 CEU/PDA

Join Us Live! Experience The Magic of Qigong!

What to expect from a workshop?

These Live Intensives in Medical Qigong will be taught by Medical Qigong Master David J. Coon, the author of Qigong for Beginners: Your Path to Greater Health and Vitality. These workshops will be hands-on and experiential teaching the ancient practices of Qigong as well as ancient forms of meditation and practices of Medical Qigong.

Master Coon has been practicing Qigong and Martial Arts for over thirty-five years. He holds black belts in Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and Kenpo Karate. In his teens and twenties, Master Coon used Qigong to heal his spine of a degenerative spinal disease that the doctors said would cripple him.

Master Coon is also a Medical Qigong Master and will be teaching students to use Medical Qigong – a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine to bring greater healing to their patients. You will learn Qigong exercises, Medical Qigong Treatment Techniques, and potent meditations for healing the mind and body.

These workshops are designed for laypeople as well as health care professionals. Most Acupuncturists will find these intensives very beneficial and applicable to their professional practices. Massage therapists and Yoga teachers will also benefit greatly from these practices gaining advanced knowledge regarding this form of Qigong, giving them the ability to teach this set to their clients and students.

What will you learn?

In this intensive, you will learn both Qigong Exercises to teach your clients or students and Medical Qigong Treatment 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

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.

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.

My Medical Qigong Intensive course was transformational for me personally and professionally. 

"My Medical Qigong Intensive course was transformational for me personally and professionally.

 

Personally, I was able to work through a block that had me bound for decades.  It was during one of the Qigong exercises that this issue began to unravel for me.  I found myself totally present to my pain and felt a safe sacred space to let it come up and out.  When the physical exercise was over, I was supported to process this in a very masterful way.  I discovered that I was in my own jail and that I also held the key. Thank you David for helping me to heal this long-standing issue.  This healing experience was a surprise and a blessing.

 

Professionally, I received the confidence to practice the practice of Medical Qigong in groups with my patients and with the public starting right away.  David is generous with his knowledge. I appreciate his strength, his wit, his focus, his practical way of bringing his mastery out and his passion to help humanity."

My body has become, grounded, stronger, and more fluid, my mind and spirit lighter and brighter!

"During my life i have tried - and learned from - many forms of energy work. But these past months learning from you has been a revelation, taking me to new levels of inner awareness, strength and health.

The recent two day, Medical Qigong Intensive was a quantum leap forward in every way. So much learned and practiced in that short time. Your regular healing clinics and meditation sessions have opened and caused me to become aware of what I need to address in myself, to use awareness and this wonderful energy to heal myself.

In the months of class practice, my body has become, grounded, stronger, and more fluid, my mind and spirit lighter and brighter! You teach with such energy, passion, gentleness, humor and clarity, enabling me to absorb what you’re imparting on every level.

Thank you for your dedication and for offering the gift of your invaluable knowledge and experience."

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.

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.

Live your best life and own your greatness. Qigong is a way…..

"Sometimes in your life, you are inspired to change and become extraordinary.  At 61 years old, I received my Red Belt in Tae Kwon-Do and also became a Qigong Instructor and Medical Qigong Practioner through Qigong Awareness and David J. Coon.  My journey began in 2002, when I met David in the middle of a divorce and a gallbladder attack.  I was sick and felt helpless in changing my life.  The doctors wanted to remove my gallbladder, however with David's help I healed my gallbladder with the practices of Medical Qigong. I began taking every Qigong class and workshop that David offered.  I also began the practice of Tae Kwon-Do taught by David and tested for my Red Belt with Grand Master Kwon Jae-Hwa. It was a mental, emotional, physical training and my life changed in ways that I never thought imaginable.  Live your best life and own your greatness. Qigong is a way..... "

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!

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.
