Medical Qigong has powerful roots in both ancient healing traditions and in modern science. The Healer Within approach, developed from a Chinese medical qigong modality known as Bu Zheng Qigong (“Vitality Enhancement Method”) helps the human body mobilize its own extraordinary self-healing capacity through 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 any individual or group.
These practices restore and nurture a healthy balance of energy throughout the body, enhance vitality, strenghthen and calm the nervous system, still the mind and rejuvenate the mind and body. They can be used to great benefit in senior centers, yoga studios,hospitals, churches, after-school programs, coaching groups, etc.
