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. 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 treatment. Any practitioner’s treatment is only as good as his or her diagnosis.
