Medical Qigong practices help the human body mobilize its own extraordinary self-healing capacities, restoring and nurturing a healthy balance of energy in the body, enhancing vitality, strengthening and calming the nervous system, and rejuvenating the mind and body.
Medical Qigong has powerful roots in both ancient healing traditions and modern science. The Healer Within approach, developed from a Chinese medical qigong modality known as Bu Zheng Qigong (“Vitality Enhancement Method”), includes four essential sets of practices:
- Body postures and movements
- Breathing exercises
- Self-massage techniques
- Mental focus practices, including mindfulness meditation
In this training, we’ll learn to create and teach mind-body practices that can be performed standing, sitting, or even lying down and can be tailored to the specific needs of individuals and groups. They can be used to great benefit in senior centers, yoga studios, hospitals, churches, after-school programs, and coaching groups, etc.
The Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi has trained nearly 1,000 teachers and practice leaders worldwide with its comprehensive training, research, and principles of mind-body practice and holistic living. This program gives you access to a follow-up online support program, Web library, and exclusive Facebook group.
Whether you are in a helping profession and want to learn powerful self-healing practices to share with your clients or community, or simply want to awaken your inner healer and achieve radiant well-being, this training will equip you with powerful wellness tools you can use for a lifetime.
