Medical Qigong

What is Medical Qi Gong?
Widely understood in China but little known in the West, medical qi gong is a modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Qi gong is a way of affecting and directing qi, or the life force, for various kinds of benefit. Rather than using needles, herbs, or massage, medical qi gong relies on the ability to direct qi with the mind, the hands, or a ritual object, but without necessarily touching the body. 

How Does Medical Qi Gong Work?
Medical qi gong strengthens and redistributes the vital energy, or "qi" of an individual. This is the same way that acupuncture and other TCM modalities work. The principles of treatment are the same, only the technique varies. Medical qi gong is well suited for very sensitive people, children, and people in frail health, but can be beneficial for absolutely anyone. Medical qi gong involves working directly and subtly with a person's qi in ways that are not invasive, and are safer and more gentle than acupuncture, acupressure, or herbology. Medical qi gong can be used to treat many subtle and spiritual conditions that cannot be treated with acupuncture, acupressure, or herbology.

Who Can Benefit From Medical Qi Gong?
Medical qi gong has been used successfully to treat a wide variety of difficult, stubborn, and life-threatening conditions that do not respond well to other types of medicine. Medical qi gong has gotten a reputation for being a good alternative treatment for cancer, as an example. Children, the elderly, people in frail health, and highly sensitive people tend to respond better to medical qi gong than other TCM modalities. Tao Fawu style medical qi gong developed out of the need to treat allergies and sensitivities painlessly, efficiently, and effectively
