Healing through Qigong

There are two aspects of healing through Qigong:

    (see also work on consciousness)

Self Healing

Prevent and cure illness is one of the main four benefits of the Qigong practice (prevent and cure illness;  enhance health;  prolong life;  develop the untapped potential of mind and consciousness).

The practice of Qigong is suitable for people who wish to work on overall health as well as specific problems such as but not limited to:

Qigong practice can clear blockages, replenish Qi and nourish the physical body and the mind. This means unhealthy gatherings of Qi (from where most diseases and abnormal growths originate) can be transformed and cleared. Qigong practice helps the body to normalize and balance itself by activating the body’s own self-healing abilities. Qigong works on the most fundamental level of human life (Qi and consciousness) and therefore can be of great help when dealing with various health problems (scientific research on Qigong health benefits).

In order self healing to be effective it is important to follow a good system under the supervision of an experienced teacher.  Some Qigong styles and exercises can have very powerful effect and could be dangerous if used in an incorrect way.  Please note that learning Qigong only by reading books is not an option!!  


Apart from practicing Qigong, healing can also occur through external Qi therapy. A trained Qi therapist can transmit Qi to the patient’s body to replenish Qi and clear blockages, and thus activate the body’s self-healing process. Qi therapy can be given to an individual as well as to a group.  Read more...

Recommended approach

If you have a minor health condition, your own Qigong practice (self healing) should be sufficient to get it under control and gradually work on it until it has completely cleared. 

If you have a more serious or a longstanding health issue, it is important to understand Qigong can support and complement both traditional and alternative approaches to healing. However, Qigong is not intended to be a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment.

Qigong Medicine

The use of Qigong medicine has been recorded in Chinese history for thousands of years.  Strictly speaking, any proper style or system of Qigong can be seen as medical Qigong because all genuine Qigong can have healing effects. In other words, any Qigong style or system that has a sound theoretical base and effective methods can be seen as Qigong medicine. When we use the word ‘medicine’, referring to a system for health care, there must by implication be methods for diagnosis and treatment. Qigong medicine differs from other medicines in several ways:

As mentioned above, Qigong medicine has been around for thousands of years. Generally speaking, traditional Qigong medicine has the same theoretical foundation as TCM. Most traditional Qigong systems focus on one of the many aspects of the theories of TCM. For example, a system may be based on the theory of Yin and Yang or the theory of the Five Elements. There are also Qigong systems that do not have a comprehensive theoretical base; they are more just methods for practice.


Yuan Ming Methods

Yuan Ming Methods are part of the Ren Xue system and is based on Ren Xue theories and methods for healing.

It is a new health care model that aims to address problems on all levels of life in a safe, effective and natural way.

The effects of Yuan Ming Methods will come about mainly through changing Qi and information. Qi and information are conveyed by the practitioner in order to effect change to the recipient’s Qi and information. The positive changes in Qi and information can then lead to improvements in health and life. This can be done through various forms:

1.Individual one-on-one therapy

2.Group therapy with one therapist working with more than two recipients

3.Remote therapy (with the therapist and the recipient(s) at two different locations). Advancements in technology such as audio and video communications over the Internet can now be used for remote therapy.

4.Other forms of therapy

5.Using three ways of transmission – physical, verbal and direct – as the main vehicle for conveying Qi and information. Other media such as written text can also be used.

An ancient book, ‘Complete Truths about Cultivating Life with Dao’ ( 修 道 全 真 ), tells us:

"Most people are born healthy. Qi, or pure Qi or Yuan Qi (source Qi) is being generated every day from within and from the exchange with the external. However, people are attacked by two ‘evils’ every day. When under such attack, people can get sick or even die when Qi is too damaged and exhausted."

The two evils refer to the sickness-causing factors from the outside and from the inside.  When we talk about sickness-causing factors from the inside, we should pay a special attention to the Consciousness related factors.  Consciousness-related factors are involved in almost all health problems even though this is more obvious in some cases than others. That's why in Yuan Ming Methods the work on Consciousness plays a very special role. 

Currently, all the health-related practices can be put in three major categories:

Yuan Ming Methods has the potential to become a holistic system that unifies all of these three categories in one.
