Awakening the Healer Within:
Medical Qigong Practice Leader Certificate Training

with Roger Jahnke

And  Senior IIQTC faculty members: Vince Sauter, Gayl Hubatch & David Lehman

A 12-Hour Training
(4 Sessions) Sat. & Sun., Jan. 29 & 30, Feb. 5 – 6, 2022, 2:00 – 5:00 pm ET

Become a Mind-Body Practice Leader using a powerful, yet accessible, Medical Qigong Method. This training will empower you personally to cultivate your healthiest, most resilient self by Awakening the Healer Within. You will learn to share the practices with others – for fun or professionally. This 4-session, 12-hour training is designed to teach you how to restore a healthy balance of energy in the body through Medical Qigong, known in China as Bu Zheng Qigong (Vitality Enhancement Method) – simple self-care tools with powerful roots in ancient healing traditions and positive evidence through contemporary science.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Discover the power of simple Medical Qigong to integrate gentle self-healing, with its focus on deep relaxation through self-regulation of the nervous system – especially Vagal Tone (the 10th cranial nerve which is not under our conscious control.)
  • Four essential methods to release your body’s own medicine — body postures and gentle movement, self-applied massage, breathing exercises and mental focus.
  • To tailor practices for your own self-care needs, modify for various populations, and for weaving into your day – as well as your “student’s day.”
  • Design practice sequences for health maintenance, health improvement and disease intervention.
  • How Medical Qigong works in your body and mind to maximize well-being.

Note: This program will now be offered online. It will be recorded and shared with registrants after each online program for three months (90 days).


Resiliency matters, particularly in our complex and changing world. The human body is a dynamic health system that is adaptable and self-healing. With the implementation of simple lifestyle components, it is easy to maximize well-being. Healer Within Medical Qigong mobilizes these capacities, resulting in a strong, sustainable balance of energy in the body – and mind/emotions. This course empowers you to enhance your own vitality through the focus on deep and intentional relaxation, rejuvenating the mind-body connection and becoming a Community Practice Leader.

Through four essential methods — body postures and gentle movement, self-applied massage, breathing exercises and mental focus (including mindfulness meditation), you will learn to increase endurance, vitality and longevity and to share these evidence-based practices with others. We’ll explore how these integrated practices can be modified for the specific needs of individuals and groups. They can be performed sitting, standing or even lying down.

You will gain the confidence to share these mind-body practices with senior centers, veterans programs, hospitals, schools, and other community settings. Whether you’re intending to share these methods, or simply want to awaken your inner healer, this training gives you powerful wellness tools you can use for a lifetime.

Note: YOURS FOR A LIFETIME! Participation in this training program gives you a Certificate of Completion (pdf) demonstrating proficiency as Medical Qigong Practice Leader. You will have access to a web-based membership library, exclusive IIQTC Facebook Group and an opportunity to be listed in the Teacher & A Practice Leader Directory on the IIQTC.org website.
