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.

“Both myself and my clients have noticed beneficial effects.”

I am very happy with this course. I learned methods and techniques that I have begun using for myself, as well as with clients. Both myself and my clients have noticed beneficial effects. David was very clear, thorough, knowledgeable, and has a lot of integrity. I would consider taking a ‘live’ class from him at some point. This course has inspired me to use these methods in my practice. I am very pleased. Thank you!

I found Tanya’s Distance Acupuncture course to be even more than I anticipated.

I found Tanya's Distance Acupuncture course to be even more than I anticipated. It has not only helped with suggestions for new patients but shown me a new skill set that I wish to pursue. The instructor was lively, professional and easy to understand. Thank you.

Absolutely best course I have ever taken…

Absolutely best course I have ever taken. And I have studied energy work for decades. The subject matter is sorely needed, The management and self cultivation practices is very much needed by energy workers. The teaching style was thorough, direct and very much appreciated. Having taken so many professional courses I hate wasting my time in classes that net little information. I have incorporated what I learned from the Medical Qigong workshop last June in both my acupuncture practice and energy practices and it is making a. Profound difference. Thank you for making this available and offering it at an affordable price.

I’ve done the whole intensive from the comfort of my home. Thank you for this wonderful journey!

I have been practicing Qigong locally in Switzerland for about three years, but I took the online intensive with Qigong Awareness because I had already been using the short videos of David’s explaining various extremely useful movements and their benefits. I work as a private Mental Health Counselor and Life Coach. My intention is to help my clients with a variety of techniques. It happened so that I had a few clients with burnout, high levels of stress and fatigue, and I’d successfully introduced some of the movements that I learned from David already on youtube. I knew I needed to learn more from him, so here I am still practicing 8 treasures locally, and learning from David to become an instructor. The Medical Qigong is beneficial for the whole being, and it brings me the sense of stillness, calms me down, or wakes me up when I need the energy for work or any other mental, or physical task.

The fact that the course is online, it will not bring me recognition for Continuous Education within my country, but what I really want is learning and training so that I can provide more options for my clients to live healthier, more balanced lives.

The videos were explained in detail, depth, with a lot of additional information from David, and I printed out the booklet as well.

I was able to train with the participants on the screen, completely absorbed, and I stopped the video whenever I needed to write down what I just heard from David.

I’ve done the whole intensive from the comfort of my home. Yes, it took me a few morning hours, but it was well worth the money and effort. I look forward to continue training and learning more from Qigong Awareness. The follow up was extremely accurate and fast. The test and questionnaires at the end were well prepared and they made me revise quite a bit before I could reply. It means that they make sure for a participant off-site to retain the important knowledge. Thank you for this wonderful journey!

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!

“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!"

Jeanne Nelson, M.S. CAMTC, Dipl. Acupressure Reiki Therapist El Cerrito, CA May 23, 2017

“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.
