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.

Incredible Online Intensives Reviews

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.

I enjoyed hearing the patients’ stories of healing.

I enjoyed hearing the patients' stories of healing. I found this course to be informative and there were some good reminders of things I learned back in TCM school but had forgotten over the years. This course has been helpful in my decision to commit to a regular, focused practice.

I feel re-inspired about being a healer…

“I really enjoyed this course! I learned a lot and it also had a huge impact on my life. I feel re-inspired about being a healer and also about my personal cultivation. I have a lot more confidence in the power of qigong for self-healing and for healing others. Thank you!”

“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.

This course has given me some oomph!!

"I have been practicing Qigong sporadically for years for my own health and well-being. This course and the methods used have inspired me to use it in my therapy sessions. I know it is important to make it a practice to be that much more effective for my clients. This course has given me some oomph!! to follow this path more diligently. Thank you David!"

Thank you for creating a delightful Qi Gong seminar.

Thank you for creating a delightful Qi Gong seminar. I have been an acupuncturist for 27 years, which means that I have taken 27 years of continuing education classes. After all of these years and classes, it is difficult
to find a class that keeps my interest, flows and is informative. Your Golden Dragon Qi Gong class flowed nicely and kept my interest throughout all the hours. The information was clear, and there was a perfect blend of didactic to exercise time. I have done Big Tree (Hugging) meditation for an hour every morning for the past 4 years. It is so important that a health care worker keep himself/herself energetically fit by practice. I think that you made this clear. It is all about the practice: from there you get your personal strength on many levels, your insights, develop your intuition, and become a better “practitioner”… Thank you for sharing so many personal stories about yourself and working with patients. It is these stories that I will remember. Thank you for creating a price that is accessible to all acupuncturists and massage therapists - it is affordable and well worth it.

I study with Qi Gong masters from Inner Mongolia. Their style is to practice without instruction, nor comments, until much later…. not much talking. I like that your style is more “American” to explain and entice students, especially beginners, with what Qi Gong is, how it works, and why you are doing what you are doing.

It has caused enormous positive shifts internally and externally in my world…

"The tools and techniques presented in this course were incredibly useful, but the energetic subtext has been even more valuable. It has caused enormous positive shifts internally and externally in my world, and built up my excitement to continue practicing. Thank you!"

“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

“Professional, easy to follow and understand…”

I have been practicing Acupuncture for over 20 years, and I attended a few classes of Qigong over the years and used it mostly for myself. Recently I took the Golden Dragon Medical Qigong Intensive course as part of my NCCAOM recertification. I was very impressed by the quality of the workshop. Professional, easy to follow and understand, full of very practical exercises and meditations that I can immediately incorporate into my personal as well my patients’ healing journey.
