Qigong (pronounced Chee Gong) is an ancient healing system from China that works to restore the functioning of the body's vital energy or "qi." By removing blockages to qi flow, emotional and physical health can be improved. Many Qigong methods were guarded for centuries as family secrets, and only in recent years have Qigong healing practices become available to Westerners. Various healing methods are employed, including movement, breathwork, massage, visualization, and directing energy.
While certain types of Qigong healing can be similar to Reiki and involve projecting energy, Qigong is much more than that. Much of what is called "Medical Qigong" involves empowering the individual to generate their own healing through personal practices, often involving gentle movements similar to Tai Chi (which is a form of Qigong). In this class, you will learn the basics of Qigong healing, including self-massage and other safe energy movement techniques.
Topics covered include:
- What is Qigong
- Basic overview of Traditional Chinese Medicine energy theory
