What Is The Difference Between Health Qigong and Medical Qigong?
There is a vast difference between Health Qigong, which is a set of exercises used for general health purposes and Medical Qigong. For example, in Health Qigong a typical Spleen exercise would maintain healthy Qi within the Spleen and Stomach. In Medical Qigong, a patient's Spleen syndrome could present as a 'Shi' type (Damp/Cold) or a 'Xu' type (deficiency/sinking), in which case the Medical Qigong Practitioner would decide whether to use purgation or tonification prescriptions. Medical Qigong is recognised as one of the four branches of Chinese Medicine - acupuncture, herbal medicine, and tui na being the others. It is considered that Medical Qigong formed the energetic foundation from which the other modalities originated. Medical Qigong incorporates ancient concepts such as Daoism, Buddhism and Shamanism. We therefore evaluate the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body.
The success of Medical Qigong Therapy relies on the occurance of an evaluation so that the correct Protocols can be administered. As well as an initial one to one consultation, assessment includes scanning (with hands) the Wei Qi Fields, Ying Qi, Sea of Blood, Sea of Marrow and the Centre Core of Light. This usually takes place on a couch with the patient fully clothed (see video).
The following Protocols (therapeutic plan) can be issued in a Medical Qigong Therapy:
- General Protocol
