Medical Qigong Practitioner
Combining the characters “Qi” with “Gong” yields Qigong, which means energy training. Qigong is an ancient Daoist discipline that synchronizes body and mind, improving physical, emotional, and mental health. This is accomplished by integrating postures, movement, breathing methods, stillness meditations, and focused intention. Benefits of qigong include improved health, prevention of illness, energetic vigor, clarity of mind, and improved longevity.
Our qigong is “internal energy training,” because it contains neigong or “internal knowledge.”
At Oregon Medical Qigong we specialize in Chinese Energetic Medicine. We treat clients in our clinic, teach Qigong classes, and offer beginning and advanced professional training in Medical Qigong. We offer NCCAOM pdu credits for Acupuncturists in our Practitioner courses.

In the hands of an accomplished practitioner of the knowledge of the International Institute of Medical Qigong, Medical Qigong Therapy is a complete system of energetic medicine that recognizes the root cause of symptoms or disease, and treats the client as a whole. The goal of medical qigong is to restore the natural flow of energy in the body, and to correct its bio-energetic imbalances and blockages. Medical qigong is the oldest form of the four main branches of Chinese medicine, which we offer as Complementary care in support of the client's ongoing healthcare program with a licensed caregiver.
Practiced as an excellent adjunct to Western medicine, Chinese medical qigong may successfully treat conditions which Western medicine finds resistant to treatment, or conditions with ambiguous causes. These causes accumulate throughout our lifetime from poor diet, sedentary or excessive lifestyle, injuries, surgery, toxic influences, suppression of emotions, and aging.
Both medical qigong energetic therapy and prescribed qigong exercises and meditations, done correctly, may restore the body’s health. Chinese medicine tells us that stress and pain, hormone and emotional imbalances, may be regulated and released. The ancient and effective experience of this traditional medicine shows how the internal organs, nervous system and immune system can also be harmonized and regulated with medical qigong.
Chinese energetic medicine treats the client’s Spirit (Shen), which may be translated as Mind or Heart-Mind. When the Shen is harmonized in accord with Qigong principles, several aspects of the psyche including one’s instinctual personal protection system, self-will, unconscious tendencies, and the personal ego may all come under the guidance of one’s own genuine awakened heart, with resulting increases in contentment, sense of clarity, and what could be called “connection to reality.”
