Frequently Asked Questions

I am wondering if it is safe to do a medical Qigong session or Qigong class with a pregnant woman? Thanks!!

Good question. When someone is pregnant relaxation and smoothness of flow is appropriate. So when doing Qigong simply slow and easy movements and breath. Nothing too dramatic like breath of fire or challenging Qigong poses for extended periods of time. Everything mindful. The same is true for a medical Qigong treatment. Very smooth healing sessions – everything calming. You know if a pregnant person is receiving too much energy during a Medical Qigong session when they get stressed and overtly bumpy? Make sure everything is instead is smooth emotional, soft tears is fine. The emotional catharsis that is “bumpy” while pregnant as opposed to smooth is not recommended. So watching and holding space and if things start building up, the breathing gets heavier or the blood is pumping harder or you see the face getting red then you need to back off and calm everything down down down. Bring energy back to the feet have the person open and close hands. Ground them. Coach them in a normal breathing pattern ” I want you to breathe in through your nose and slowly exhale through your nose and then mouth. Relax everything is ok.” But if your paying attention there should be no problem. This isn’t going to happen right away..so simply be watchful and work gently and do no harm..

I loved the online course Alchemizing Stress & Restoring Balance. Would you ever teach that one live again?

Thanks for asking this question. At this time we are only planning on teaching one live intensive course at a time each year or two and then filming the course in a studio. So, we do not plan on reteaching previous workshops from past years. We attempt to create a new course each year so that our students can still receive credit from the acupuncture and massage boards each year to renew their licenses.

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.

Incredible Online Intensives Reviews

“I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this intensive.”

I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this intensive. David shared so much in the way of knowledge, demonstration of methods and above all experiential stories – personal and working with others. The energy that we are capable of generating is astounding once the intention and mind are focused. Feeling is believing! I look forward to attending a workshop one day. Thank you.

Janet Snowden, LAc Santa Fe, NM April 18, 2016

I am full-heartedly looking forward to furthing my Qigong practices.

“Great Course! Your teachings sincerely resonated with me. The meditations were absolutely fabulous and were so satisfying to my being. David helped to make these exercises accessible during the course, while allowing enough practice time to also incorporate these into my daily life. Even after one weekend I feel invigorated and inspired. I am full-heartedly looking forward to furthing my Qi Gong practices.”

WOW! I learned a lot…

I learned that the Chakra system and the endocrine system are inextricably linked. You can heal pain anywhere in the body by breathing into the heart. I can feel and witness the Kundalini shake in myself and my patients... WOW! I learned a lot and this intensive reinforced my belief in the way medicine should work for patients. Thank you.

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.

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 hard for me to express exactly what I’m feeling but this course resonated with me on a much deeper level…

Thank you!

It is hard for me to express exactly what I'm feeling but this course resonated with me on a much deeper level than "Alchemizing Stress". The energy was more palpable and the philosophy combined with technique application was tangible. Maybe it's because of the lesson. Maybe it is because Qigong is now more a part of my everyday life. Maybe because of something else. Maybe all of the above.

Again, my words fail me at this point to truly express on what I can only describe as what I feel or taste. They do not however elude me so much that they do allow me to say a heartfelt "Thank You!". 🙂

“This course has been excellent. It has really exceeded my expectations.”

This course has been excellent. It has really exceeded my expectations. Sometimes taking required CEUs for license renewal is just a thing that I have to do. There isn't any spark, I trudge through and get my certificate. This course, however, got my juices flowing. I am absolutely going to incorporate this into my acupuncture practice. Thank you!!

Keri Costello, Licensed Acupuncturist Tempe, Arizona October 18, 2016

“My online course with David Coon was very captivating and helpful.”

My online course with David Coon was very captivating and helpful. I found myself re-energized with newfound techniques based on the traditional concepts of acupuncture. This becomes profound when one combines the two. The other factor is to energized oneself first, so one is able to further enhance the treatment protocols.

His philosophy is most important to hear. David’s experiences and concepts are vital to putting it together. One of my instructors said it best…"It’s not so important where You put the needle, but where You are, when you put the needle in.”

Robert Marikawa Davis, LAc Kansas April 18, 2016

Best CEU class I’ve taken by far!

Best CEU class I've taken by far! Loved the discussion on the chakras and the endocrine system. I'm definitely looking forward to taking more classes!
