Frequently Asked Questions

Will I learn Acupuncture Points?

The courses in the Certification Program primarily discuss the deeper energetic anatomy and energy pathways: this would include the chakra system, the three dantians and three treasures, and specific acupuncture meridians that are connected to “deeper” energetics like Ren, Du, and Chong Mai in connection to Ida and Pingala and Shushumna in the Indian System.

Certain acupuncture points are discussed as well as understandings related to different organs. But rather than going into all of them, there is an emphasis on certain extra potent places like stomach 36, also known as the three-mile point, and how this relates to deeper healing. As well as the yin tang brow chakra and others.
But again, emphasis is not on all points and meridians but rather focused on the deeper chi reservoirs in the body and the more primary energetic forces. Again those include deeper pathways and specific points associated with those pathways or energy vortexes.
Also, because many of our students are acupuncturists, they already know the acupuncture and acupressure points.
As far as the Medical Qigong technique, I typically demonstrate hands-on and hands-off techniques because some practitioners work with one more than the other. I will show hands-off and even distance healing but then typically address the massage therapist style of working and how to incorporate the technique and the acupuncturists who will be using needles.

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

or

  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.
