Qigong is the art of developing internal energy particularly for health and vitality, mind expansion, and spiritual cultivation. Qigong uses body movements, rhythmic breathing, visualizations, and healing sounds.
Qigong is a combination of two ideas:
“Qi” or Chi (pronounced chee), means air, the breath of life, or vital energy that flows through all things in the universe. In other cultures around the world it is Prana, Aether, Life Force Energy, etc.
“Gong” or Kung (pronounced gung, as in lung) means the skill of working with, or cultivating, self-discipline, learned skill and, *(also spelled chi kung, chi gong, and chi gung).
Romanized Chinese “qigong” sounds like [ch’i kung] or chee in the English spelling system, and not like [ki gong]. or key.
The word “Qigong” literally means “breathing exercises,” “to work the vital force,” “energy mastering exercises,” “mastery of the posture, breath, and intention” etc.
Older terms; Xingqi “Aiding the flow of chi/moving chi”. Yang Sheng “Nourishing the forces of life”. Dao Yin “leading and guiding the chi / Harmonizing the body, breath, and mind through moving the limbs and torso. Chi Kung was coined in 1915, 1929 as a martial reference and in 1936 as a medical reference.
Yellow Emperor (Huang Di) (2696-2598 B.C.) practiced Qigong and other Taoist arts including Herbalism, and Meditation. Authored the 12 Scrolls of Internal Medicine.
Zhou Dynasty (1028-221 B.C.) the I Ching arrived publicly and before that, there was no separation between the study of medicine and divination. Three Treasures Schools Heaven, Earth and Man.
Han Dynasty (206-B.C.-220 A.D.) In 1972 the Dao Yin Tu postures from King Ma's tomb were discovered. Modern-day Qigong is well documented and scientifically validated, and in universities around the world. Qigong is a natural self-health care system, it empowers individuals to feel their best and prevent stress, anxiety, and negative emotions. Qigong is the power of self-knowledge!

What to expect… from a Medical Qigong Session
Medical Qigong is a safe, non-invasive approach to wellness that allows your body’s natural healing abilities to take place.
Schedule a session today or connect with Sifu JC if you have specific questions.
Your first Medical Qigong Session includes:
Evaluation: The treatment begins with a general discussion of your goals for the session, which may include: specific symptoms (physical, emotional, mental, etc.) or general well-being. For most of the session, you will rest comfortably while your practitioner applies a variety of qi manipulations. In Medical Qigong, there is a limited need for physical contact, so you will remain fully dressed.
Treatment: Energy (heat, light, sound) can pass through air and clothing, so there is no need to disrobe. Treatments include energy healing and diagnosis of each organ system and overall body condition. The client may feel varying sensations as the energy moves, such as warmth, tingling, coolness, vibration, and twitching as the stagnant energy releases.
Prescriptions: When your session is complete, we will talk through any discoveries and answer questions that may arise during the session. You will also receive the instruction of one or two qigong exercises designed to reinforce your
medical qigong session.
Most patients report a greater sense of well-being, symptomatic relief, and in some cases profound purging of toxic energy.
Sifu JC will guide through a beautiful meditation as you lay down on your back fully clothed with soft lighting and gentle music.
Medical Qigong Treatments help cleanse the auric fields (wei qi), chakras and meridians to balance, revitalize, and awaken the body’s own ability to heal itself.
These sessions support the healing of pain, illness, disease, and difficult to heal conditions. Medical Qigong Sessions also provide healing for chronic fatigue, stress, depression, anxiety, and trauma.
Private Medical Qigong Phone or Zoom Session with Sifu JC Medical Qigong Master. This is a one-hour healing session. JC will call you on the phone or by Zoom for your scheduled healing session. You will sit or lie down during the session and be restful while Sifu JC speaks to you about the energy dynamics, playing out in your life, your relationships, and your physical body. Sifu JC will transmit energy and guide you through the transformational healing. Enjoy the experience.
Medical Qigong, one of the four main branches of Chinese medicine, is a complete system of medicine that recognizes the root causes of symptoms or disease and treats the patient as a whole. Practiced as an excellent adjunct to Western medicine. Chinese medicine may successfully treat conditions which Western medicine finds resistant or ambiguous.
The goal of qigong is to correct bio-energetic imbalances and blockages in the body that accumulate throughout our lifetime. These include poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, injuries, surgery, toxic influences, suppression of emotions, and aging. Medical Qigong therapy and qigong self-treatment, both enable the body to return to its natural state of health and harmony.
Pain and stress may be relieved and hormones regulated. Deep-seated emotions, which are considered a major root cause of illness within Chinese medicine, may be purged and released. This strengthens the body and regulates the internal organs, the nervous system, and the immune system.
A Medical Qigong Session is approximately one hour. Initial sessions may be longer, with recommendations.
