Medical Qigong Sessions
A Medical Qigong session is approximately one hour. Initial sessions may be longer.
At this time the practitioner makes observations to determine the physical, emotional, and energetic condition of the client. Based on this information the practitioner will formulate a treatment protocol.
Qi can pass through air and clothing, so there is no need to disrobe. The practitioner often works about a foot away from the client’s body, and sometimes lightly touches the client to guide and manipulate the movement of Qi. The client may feel varying sensations as the Qi moves, such as warmth, tingling, coolness, vibration, and sometimes twitching as the stagnant energy releases. Generally, clients find the treatments extremely relaxing and rejuvenating. Sometimes clients may become aware of uncomfortable emotions that have been suppressed and have an emotional release either during or after the treatment. As one of the primary goals of Medical Qigong therapy is to release toxic emotions from within the body’s tissues, having an emotional release is extremely beneficial to one’s psychological and physiological well-being.
After the treatment the client will be given Qigong prescriptions to assist in their ongoing healing. These Medical Qigong exercises and meditations are tailored specifically to the clients, similar to an acupuncturist prescribing healing herbs or a medical doctor giving a pharmaceutical prescription.
