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

After taking the course I feel empowered knowing I have something valuable to share…

Tanya's Distance Acupuncture course came at a perfect time. With the current state of things a good number of patients have temporarily discontinued treatment. Though they've all communicated they miss their acupuncture greatly and can't wait to get back, they're unsure of when they'll feel safe enough to return. Their health concerns still need assistance and their stress levels have increased due to isolation and fear.

After taking the course I feel empowered knowing I have something valuable to share with them. I also now feel confident in applying my intuitive skills from afar and provide those patients a distant acupuncture experience I feel resembles an in-office treatment (with the added bonus of not having the usual abrupt shift back to reality when having to drive back to work or home). I switched over to using an extremely gentle needling technique myself as you shared for the last few years and my patients absolutely love it (they barely feel anything plus still the same great results).

I did also just take the Medical Qigong Intensive: The Ultimate Mind Body Medicine which I feel prepared me well for this class. I will definitely be taking more classes with Tanya and David - I am grateful for their positive impact on my and my patients' lives. Thank you!

As a student from Brazil, I feel it’s great that an awesome course like this is available worldwide.

“I think he fully embodies what he is teaching”

This course was really well presented by Mr. Coon. I felt like he was completely grounded within himself, very confident in his delivery - and also uninhibited in his demonstrations, which was somehow a relief for me to witness. I think he fully embodies what he is teaching.

…he has a way of welcoming and educating people in a compassionate way.

David is a great instructor! If you know nothing about the practice, or have been practicing for years, he has a way of welcoming and educating people in a compassionate way. His method allows you to learn about yourself and how to bring daily healing practices into your life. I highly recommend this course and Qigong Awareness.

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.

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.

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!"

Roger Wood, Dipl. ABT (NCCAOM) Cambridge, MA May 23, 2017

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!". 🙂

“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

“It is a very professional session… a really good experience.”

I am a licensed acupuncturist and just took the Medical Qigong classes for my certificate renew. It is a very professional session and I learned a lot of new meditation for self-treatment and for assisting my clients to treat themselves. The teachers are very nice too. It is a really good experience.
