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

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.”

“…by far one of the best courses I have taken.”

David Coon’s on-line medical Qigong course was by far one of the best courses I have taken. David presents the course as though you are in the classroom with him. The material is easy to read and the Qigong exercises are easy to follow and extremely powerful. I looked forward to each new module and watched them over many times. I highly recommend this course I think the only thing better would be to go in person. Looking forward to a sequel!

You have a way of presenting complicated information and relationships that makes it comprehensible!

"I am both encouraged and inspired by your work, your approach and your way of thinking about and weaving together so many aspects of this art and work! You have a way of presenting complicated information and relationships that makes it comprehensible! Thank you so much for preparing and presenting this workshop.... and for all the work you have done in order to be able to create it."

I benefitted greatly from this course.

I benefitted greatly from this course. My acupuncture treatments have improved with the use of these Medical Qigong Techniques. Sometimes I feel that even though my clients do not understand Qigong very much they definitely feel my overall intent is increasing to try to make them feel better, and my overall treatment results seem to be increasing. The highlight of this course for me was deepening my understanding that chronic stress is the root of inflammation. I am trying to gently lead my clients into Qigong practices, meditation, high vibration eating, associating with people who make them feel happy, and many other lifestyle modifications. They do not all "get it" but at least I can show them a good example of how I try to live and hopefully open a door for them.

Thank you David and Tanya for your Great Work. The planet needs people like you who are passionate about healing people in mind, body and spirit. Keep up the Good Work!

“The lectures impressed and lifted me”

I find it exhilarating to work with the class material for myself, my acupuncture patients and my family! The qigong exercises and healing techniques calm my shen and vitalize me for work, play, relationships and life's challenges.

The practices taught by David blend beautifully with my yoga life that has been in cultivation 27 years. He gracefully brought to light the deep correspondences between acupuncture channels, yogic chakras, the endocrine system, the heart and emotions, and how they all affect the body and mind.

The lectures impressed and lifted me with affirmations from Eastern and Western medical literature as to the power of the mind and body to heal.

The peaceful sitting meditations balance the rigorous 'on your feet' qigong and offer practices for healing others in distant locations, an opportunity that I treasure.

This workshop is golden for people who like to move, feel, love and heal!

“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!!

“I really enjoyed this online course.”

I really enjoyed this online course. The instructor answered many of my body, mind, spirit questions by using qigong. And I love how he emphasized that practicing all this on ourselves is incredibly important.

I am so happy to have taken this course!

I am so happy to have taken this course! It was so energizing and made me want to jump around or laugh out loud. The energy also had calming moments during treatment techniques when all I wanted to do was fall asleep. Thank you Qigong Awareness I can not wait to further my studies!

Much love and peace - Bella!

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!"

I really appreciate the piece of practitioner exercises as sometimes we put so much effort into seeing clients and forget about ourselves

This was an excellent course. I appreciated that I could do the modules in one hour segments - because sometimes long weekend intensive courses can be, well too intensive. I really appreciate the piece of practitioner exercises as sometimes we put so much effort into seeing clients and forget about ourselves and we are a good part of the equation for healing. Thank you and I hope you will consider doing more of these for NCCAOM. I am an acupressurist and can see how medical qigong work can be useful for my clients!
