Medical Qigong Therapy (MQT) originated 5,000 years ago and was the first of the four branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), predating Acupressure, Acupuncture and Herbalism. MQT is a form of healing energy therapy that incorporates the diagnostic and energetic balancing principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine with the energy sensing and intuitive healing abilities of the Medical Qigong Therapist to boost the body's immune function, reduce stress levels and allow healing to occur in a totally non-invasive manner.

The client lies on a table while remaining fully clothed and, with closed eyes, gently follows the flow of energy, sensations or thoughts that occurs during the session. The Medical Qigong Therapist works around established TCM protocols to achieve energetic balance within the body by purging stagnant energy, filling with new universal energy and regulating all the energy throughout the body. The client is then given Medical Qigong exercises or meditations to practice at home. Generally the client feels a profound sense of calm after a treatment.

"Medical Qi Gong is an effective therapy for many maladies. Give it a try, you may be amazed. In my case it has been better than acupuncture and physical therapy, both of which I have tried. I got immediate relief from discomfort and a feeling of weakness in my leg with Medical Qi Gong. Other problems are also responsive to Medical Qi Gong as practiced by a Master provider." - L.I.
