Medical Qigong Therapy

Of all the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) branches, Medical Qigong is the most ancient and is practised in many hospitals in China. It combines breath, visualisation and physical exercise. Like all TCM, it works on correcting imbalances along the meridians so that Qi (life force) can travel freely. The benefits of Medical Qigong are said to include not only improvement in vitality, but also happiness, longevity, and spiritual development.

There are two categories to Medical Qigong: internal and external. Internal is where the patient is prescribed a specific Dao Yin (exercise). External is where Medical Qigong is performed through Qi transmission by the Medical Qigong Therapist on the patient. Dao Yins (home exercises) are often prescribed by the Medical Qigong Therapist. This attracts a certain type of patient – one who is independent and wants to take control and responsibility for their own health and wellbeing. Also, Medical Qigong is chosen by many patients who have a phobia of needles. A detailed consultation is taken for every patient and a prescription is administered according to the specific syndrome. Patients remain fully clothed throughout the treatment. Please note this is not Qigong which is a system aimed at maintaining general health and taught in T’ai Chi classes.

Our Medical Qigong Therapist is particularly interested in newly diagnosed patients with M.S., Chronic Fatigue and Parkinson’s Disease as Medical Qigong is said to slow down the deterioration process.

Testimonials

 

I found you through the website and read that one of your practitioners had done a research project on Parkinson’s Disease. Initially I wanted help with tremor. Anita explained PD from a TCM perspective. A combined treatment plan of acupuncture and medical qigong was suggested. After six weeks, my posture had improved and I had more energy. Sleep was good too. My tremor had reduced, but Anita explained that PD was a complex condition that takes time. Thank you for helping me to focus on the good days. My family have noticed how much more content I am.
