Medicinal Qi Gong is a 5000 year old energy healing technique, a modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is frequently referred to as Medical Qi Gong. It is a way of direction the Qi (life force energy) using the hands, or the mind without touching the body. Medical Qi Gong practitioners have a thorough knowledge of TCM scientific theory, acupuncture and herbalism. This very subtle medical practice requires a high degree of focus. Practitioners offer both diagnosis and treatment, based on their skills as medical intuitives and meditators.
Widely understood in China but little known in the West, Medicinal Qi Gong is a modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is a way of affecting and directing Qi, or the life force, for various kinds of benefits. Rather than using needles, herbs, or massage, Medical Qi Gong relies on the ability to direct Qi (sometimes spelled Chi) with the mind, the hands, or a ritual object, but without necessarily touching the body. Like its better known counterparts acupuncture and herbal medicine, Medical Qi Gong requires thorough knowledge of TCM scientific theory in order to be used skillfully.
A Medical Qi Gong practitioner should be at least as well-trained as an acupuncturist or herbalist. To develop skill with Medical Qi Gong, a practitioner needs to be highly disciplined, with a very focused mind similar to that of a well-seasoned meditator. To practice medicine as subtle as Medical Qi Gong, a practitioner must have unusual abilities of subtle perception. Ideally, a Medical Qi Gong practitioner should also be a skilled medical intuitive in order to make the most accurate diagnosis as well as provide treatment. Any practitioner's treatment is only as good as his or her diagnosis.
