Frequently Asked Questions

If I have already taken one 15 CEU Intensive can I still take Level I All-Inclusive?

Yes! You will actually receive a $199 DISCOUNT if you have previously completed a 15 CEU Intensive with Qigong Awareness, LLC. The Intensive you previously took will replace one of the All-Inclusive Level I Intensives. Please email [email protected] with the name of the previous 15 CEU intensive completed and request for a $199 discount.

You will be sent a one-time promocode for a $199 discount to purchase Level I All-Inclusive Program if you have previously taken a Qigong Awareness 15 CEU intensive.

Because you have already completed one 15 CEU intensive you will only be required to complete one of the two required 15 CEU intensives for Level I. Please choose which of these you would prefer to take to complete your Level I certification. The other 15 CEU intensive will be removed from your Level I program.

Please choose one of these two:

  1. Golden Dragon Medical Qigong Intensive: Alchemizing Stress & Restoring Balance


  1. Medical Qigong For Back Pain

How often do you make a new Online Medical Qigong Intensive?

Every one to two years. We create a new Medical Qigong Live Intensive and then film it in a studio and then make it into an Online Medical Qigong Intensive.

How often do you make new Medical Qigong Live Intensives? 

Another great question. We make a new Medical Qigong Live Intensive every one to two years. You may repeat any of our Live Medical Qigong Intensives for additional Qigong Awareness credit towards any of our Level Programs. However the NCCAOM, CA Acupuncture Board, FL Acupuncture Board, CE Broker, FL Massage Board, and Texas Medical Board have approved each of our intensives to provide students credit only one time each.

So, I can keep making the 12 monthly payments for Level I: QI-50 and then begin Level II: QI-100?

Yes, you are welcome to do it that way also. You just won’t be able to officially graduate (and receive all final documents) from either level until final payment is received and you have graduated from Level I: QI-50.

If I plan to complete Level I: QI-50 quickly but I already started the monthly payments – how does that work? 

Great question. You may complete the Level I: QI-50 training before the 12 months of payments are done, however we will wait to send your official graduation and final documents until final payment is received. You may ask for a pay off amount if you would like to finish early. You may also begin Level II: QI-100 even before receiving your final documents for Level I: QI-50, but will not be eligible to graduate from Level II: QI-100 until you have officially graduated from Level I: QI-50.

How long does it take to complete Level I: QI-50, Qigong Instructor certification program?

In general about one year. If you take the Medical Qigong Online Intensive and one Medical Qigong Live Intensive close together, theoretically you could complete the entire level I, in just a few months. Also, if you have previously taken one of our Live or Online Medical Qigong Intensives then you may complete Level I in an even shorter time frame.

What if I want to take your entire program all 300 hours? Is there a discount?

We would love for you to take our entire Medical Qigong Practitioner & Qigong Instructor Certification Programs. At this time we are not offering additional discounts on the entire program. We do however offer discounts off of live intensives and our online courses.

Should I sign up for Level I: QI-50, Online Medical Qigong Intensive, or the Live Medical Qigong Intensive first?

The order is completely up to you. If you know for certain that you want to take the Level I All-Inclusive: QI-50, Qigong Instructor certification program then I recommend signing up for that first since it includes everything that you will need to complete Level I. However, if you begin with one of our 15 CEU Intensives either online, live or live webinar format you will receive a $199 discount off of Level I (compensation for substituting one of the online intensives included in Level I). You will also only need to complete one of the 15 CEU Online Courses that make up Level I.

Why Medical Qigong?

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...


Deep gratitude...

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. Qi

gong 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 st

ress. 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 en

d 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 classe

s. 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.
