Qigong Awareness emerged from the synergistic combination of Acupuncture and Medical Qigong…



Founders of Qigong Awareness Tanya Coon and David Coon…

Tanya, an Acupuncturist, and David, a Qigong and Martial Arts Master, met in 2002 and connected instantly. Both recognized how perfectly their backgrounds and expertises blended together to offer the cutting edge combination of Acupuncture and Medical Qigong Treatments. They were married in 2004 in Hawaii.

Tanya and David discovered, through their 17 years of working together in private practice, just how powerful the healing results of combining both Acupuncture and Medical Qigong into one session can be. They realized their calling was to help people learn Medical Qigong and how to combine it with other therapeutic modalities such as Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, Physical Therapy, Chiropractic, and more.

Tanya and David have expanded their reach with nationally-approved continuing education courses across the country, to Acupuncturists and Massage Therapists, as well as lay people desiring to heal their minds and bodies through Medical Qigong practices. These courses are available as live weekend intensives and online courses.

In 2017 Tanya and David began offering a Certified Qigong Instructor Training Program and a Certified Medical Qigong Practitioner Training Program. . Many of their graduates are already teaching at hospitals, businesses, corporations, retreat centers, recreation centers, schools and private healing centers. This will bring even greater healing and awareness, of Medical Qigong to our local communities and our nation as a whole



David J. Coon, Medical Qigong Master

David is the Head Instructor and Co-Founder of Qigong Awareness, LLC.

When David was fifteen years old he was diagnosed with a severe spinal disease and told that he would be crippled by the time he was thirty years old. Unwilling to accept this fate, David began intensively studying Oriental Medicine, Medical Qigong, Martial Arts and Meditation.

David learned how to cultivate and direct the energetic life force called Chi in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through Qigong practice, David healed his spinal disease completely! David also found that his mood, his attitude, his outlook on life, and his intuition had all increased exponentially. He was drawn to teaching and sharing these healing practices and spiritual counsel with others.

David is now a Medical Qigong Master with over thirty years of experience facilitating healing for people using Medical Qigong. 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.

David also has a vast Martial Arts background with Black Belts in Karate, Tae Kwon Do and Kenpo Karate. He has been an Instructor of Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Martial Arts. He has also studied Japanese Ju Jitsu, Kung Fu, Small Circle Ju Jitsu, Aikido, Chen Style Tai Chi, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Pen Jak Silat, Kendo and more..

David’s Qigong Practices are underpinned by his Psychology degree from the University of Connecticut and three years of experience as a Professional Counselor in Louisville,Colorado.  He also spent three years at the University of Colorado studying Molecular and Cellular Biology to better understand the inner workings of the body on a cellular and biochemical level.

David began in 2007 offering continuing education workshops to Acupuncturists through the NCCAOM, the governing body for Acupuncture in the United States.

David is the author of Qigong For Beginners: Your Path to Greater Health & Vitality available on Lulu.com and Amazon.com.
