Hi, guys. David J. Coon with Qigong Awareness. This shout out goes out to my massage therapists, those of you who are doing body work in this way. Medical Qigong provides a shortcut of simplification. It’s a shortcut, a quicker route to greater healing for a person in terms of some problem or condition that you’re working with that person on. Let’s say it’s in their knee or their shoulder or their hip. Those of you who are massage therapists, been doing that for six months or six years, whatever the case may be, you know how challenging it is to try and meet a client’s needs and literally get to their whole body in one session.
You could be working on things for a long time. Medical Qigong is a primary form of Chinese medicine. At the roots of that particular medicine, we focus on the organs. We focus on the meridians, the pathways, the energy pathways and how they relate to the tissues. If there’s going to be a problem in the tissue, even if somebody falls off of a bike and hurts themselves in that way, it’s not just that they hurt their arm or hurt their shoulder.
Whiplash is actually a perfect example. We all see the pictures of the head goes forward and the head goes back, and it injures the spine. From an Oriental medicine perspective, the organs also got knocked around. When the organs get knocked around, specifically all of them, but also specifically up in the liver and the spleen area, the neck is out of whack. You can massage it ten, twenty times, and it just doesn’t seem to be getting better as quick as it could. Medical Qigong has many quick routes to bringing healing to things that literally will cost you one-tenth of the energy that it would cost you to try and massage the neck versus touching a point, releasing something, getting a little gurgling sound from the liver, for example, the liver/gallbladder that then releases the neck.
