“So what do you do?”
“I teach Medical Qigong.”
“Uhuh…sorry medical what?”
This kind of conversation I have quite a lot. Everybody knows yoga but not many have heard of (medical) Qigong. So how to explain a 4000 year old healing system in a couple of words? I can’t. Because basically you have to experience it to understand it. But let’s give it a try. Medical Qigong is an exercise system to bring your body and your mind back in balance. Qiflow Medical Qigong follows the TQH system which starts out with 7 very simple exercises. These exercises can be done by everybody, in whatever condition his or her body is. We look for our body center or dantien, we connect breath and motion and start the journey towards healing.
And although Qigong is based in the Traditional Chinese Medicine with its yin/yang and 5 element theory it’s also pure science. Applied physics to be more specific. Now, don’t worry, I’m not teaching physics. I’m teaching you to become aware of your body, to start to understand what is going on there. Which habits you have that are not helping your health and how to change them. The more you become aware of your body, the more you can rely on yourself for curing any of your ailments. This system not only helps you to cure, it also helps you to prevent. And that is the real medicine. As Thomas Alva Edison in the 1800’s already said:
The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame.
That is exactly what medical Qigong is all about. The awareness and the care about your human frame. Body and Mind.
