The intent of the course is to introduce a practical and accessible approach to the classical healing art of qigong. The content of this material has two primary clinical applications. The first application is for the patient so that they may supplement their treatment between sessions. The second application is for the practitioner so that they may nourish themselves and improve the quality of care they provide.
This simple system deals specifically with structure and mechanics rather than ethereal energetics that can often confuse those that are new to TCM and unfamiliar with the concept of "qi." Participants will learn to promote the circulation of vital fluids, improve joint mobility and range of motion, develop balance and coordination, and directly massage specific internal organs so as to optimize efficiency and function.
