How Does Qigong Work?
Qigong has existed for thousands of years alongside other traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practices such as acupuncture, moxa therapy, and Tui Na Massage. TCM is based on the ancient Chinese philosophy that all ailments are the result of blocked qi (life force).
By stimulating the meridian channels our life force travels along, we can help remove blockages and restore blocked or trapped qi. The result is the body returning to homeostasis and triggering our own natural healing ability.
Physical Conditions Qigong Therapy May Help
Medical Qigong has been shown to help reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation in cancer patients. Qigong has also been used to treat cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and post-stroke patients.
This holistic treatment can also help reduce chronic pain and digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, hormonal, and nervous system disorders.
The Psychological Benefits Of Qigong
Not to be ignored are the psychological benefits of releasing blocked qi. Many who’ve experienced a session report a lower stress level, a feeling of peace and tranquility, and find more meaning and purpose in their life.
The Difference Between Health & Medical Qigong
Health Qigong is often performed in groups. Medical qigong is a one-on-one, more personal session tailored specifically to your needs. A medical practitioner has a higher level of training in theory, pathology, anatomy, and physiology.
What Is A Typical Session Like?
Because qi is able to pass through air and clothing, there is no need to disrobe for your session. It is recommended you wear comfortable clothing you can easily move in. Your session may consist of breath work, psychosomatic exercises, meditation, and guided visualizations.
During the session, there may be little to no contact as the practitioner guides and manipulates qi around you. You may experience sensations such as tingling, warmth, or twitching as stagnant qi is being freed.
The session is meant to be a relaxing and often energizing experience. However, it’s not uncommon to feel a surge of uncomfortable emotions. Releasing negative and toxic emotions is highly beneficial on your healing journey.
