So what is Medical QiGong?
Chi Kung and Qigong are the same thing. Let's break it down. Medical is medicine; Chi ( qi) is the Chinese word for energy; Kung in the Chinese word for work or practice. So, Medical Chi Kung is medicinal energy work. Now, for those of you that are familiar with Master Mantak Chia's Universal Healing Tao. You will recognize our basic Medical Chi Kung meditations; The Inner Smile, the Six Healing Sounds and the Microcosmic Orbit. If you are new, I hope you enjoy these meditations and your opportunity to learn self mastering as much as I've enjoyed sharing it. I want you to be aware that you are about to practice meditation that our ancestors were practicing over five thousand years ago. It always makes feel somehow connected to something bigger when I remember that I'm caring on a tradition. I hope you have a great time. If you have any questions drop me an email.

Medical QiGong allows the body to detoxify, energize and balance itself for optimal health through simple movements or thought processes (formula’s of meditation). What appears to be metaphor is actually simple physiology - this means, for example, that a smile actually facilitates positive change on a molecular level, for example. Medical QiGong uses that simple body awareness and chemistry to avoid or heal damage done by self damaging thoughts and behaviors.
Practitioners around the world testify to the permanent benefits of healthy thought and movement. This has been so for thousands of years and continues to grow in popularity.
Medical QiGong is a burgeoning area for many health practitioners and there are a growing number of educators around the world. Search on line (or by asking friends) for a practitioner that is certified through a respected system or master. Medical Qigong training, like we find in Master Mantak Chia’s Universal Healing Tao system, requires discipline, years of training, clinical hours and personal dedication. Look for a teacher who emulates qualities you respect and aspire to attaining. Medical Qigong requires not only physical shifts and awareness but the emotional as well. Your teacher should be someone that you respect, understand and feel comfortable with.
Let’s break this down. Qi (also spelled Chi) is a Chinese character that can be translated to either breath or energy. Gong (also spelled Kung) is a Chinese character that can be translated to either practice or work. So, it is reasonable to say that QiGong is Energy Work. Medical QiGong is medicinal energy work and includes:
Through practice, the Medical QiGong practitioner develops the ability to manipulate molecules to promote health, healing and increase longevity. Medical QiGong is Quantum Physics in action.
There are two types of Qigong practice:
Tai Chi is a favorite Dynamic QiGong among practitioners as are Five Animal QiGong forms that wring out toxins from the fascia around each organ and muscle. In Iron Shirt QiGong, there are postures which are held for periods of time to squeeze tendon against bone and bring about greater tendon and muscle strength and Qi. One may also consider Taoist Yoga, Tao Yin, as an excellent start to Dynamic QiGong study.
Sitting meditation focuses the breath, body, and mind through specific formulas of thought. Practitioners learn that thought waves of possibility may be programmed with specific intentions and facilitate change based on those intentions.
Qigong, particularly Medical QiGong, employs combinations of these practices to promote health issues or maintain health throughout life. It also helps the individual connect to nature; something many westerners have fallen away from.
This is by far the most growing style around the world as it is the most needed. The techniques allow the practitioner to move molecules to facilitate health on a physical and emotional level.
There are two types of Medical Qigong:
Also referred to as the Martial Arts, this Qigong is dynamic and promotes physical ability to protect ones self. Martial Qigong practitioners train the body to perform amazing feats in an effort to condition the body for optimal performance, speed and strength.
Qigong healers train the ability to move the forces of nature through another to facilitate clearing and healing. They also train the ability to recognize specific emotional patterns that may be hindering or harming their patient. Each healer has their own techniques for transforming negative situations and may teach them to the patient so they may continue the healing process on their own.
There are a few popular modalities QiGong Healers use:
In order to be a truly effective QiGong Healer, the practitioner does need to maintain a high level of personal health through their own cultivated QiGong practice. Therefore, most Healers practice continue their education in Self-Healing QiGong and use it as a way of life.
Understanding what makes us ill or healthy is the norm for QiGong practitioners. All we can ask for is to be at a place of choice and have the self love to make healthy decisions - it sounds simple, but it frequently is not. A QiGong practitioner is not a victim, rather, they train the ability to see the intereconnectedness in all things and take responsibility for their own outcomes.
On a more physical level, practicing Qigong or receiving Qigong Healing stimulates the organs, glands, acupuncture points, meridians, brain and much more. Furthermore, volumes have been written on the calming effects meditation has on the mind; the benefits of this can change the way a person views their life for the better.
Any practice where one focuses on moving energy with their mind, breath or dynamic movement.
Tai Chi is often called Tai Chi QiGong. Tai Chi is simply a moving (dynamic) form of QiGong.
It depends on which kind of QiGong you start with. Many start with Dynamic (moving) QiGong like Tai Chi or Bagua forms. As long as they attach the thoughts to each movement, it is QiGong.
If the practitioner starts with seated QiGong, the daily “practice” will be centered around the formula they are mastering at the moment.
QiGong exercises covers all forms of dynamic, standing or seated practices. The term QiGong Exercises simply refers to a the daily routine an individual adopts as they master each step of their particular QiGong form.
Chi meditation is any thought formula that incorporates a conscious moving, clearing or transformation of energy.
