Qigong Prescription Therapy
Medical Qigong (qigong prescription therapy) as a discipline of Psychonueroimmunology helps prevent disease, promote healing and enhance well-being in the practitioners life. Qigong prescription therapy is an ancient form of Chinese energetic medicine, and is one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine, along with acupuncture, herbal medicine, and medical massage. Healings demonstrates through balancing qi or electromagnetic energy which surrounds and pervades in everything with a heart beat.
Disruptions in the electromagnetic energy of the body can occur throughout the natural life span as a result of poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, surgery, injuries, suppression of emotions, and aging.
The goal of qigong is to stablize these bio-energetic imbalances and blockages. This enables the body to strengthen and regulate the internal organs, the nervous system and the immune system, reduce pain, regulate hormones, and strengthen and release deep-rooted emotions and stress.
Qigong prescription therapy consists of treatment by a practitioner to regulate the client's qi. After the treatment the client will be given individual qigong prescriptions to assist in their ongoing healing. Tailored specifically to the client, qigong prescription exercises use physical movement, breathing methods and mental focus to correct and restore the harmony in the body.
Qigong prescription therapy is a powerful system of health care that recognizes the root causes of symptoms or disease, and treats the client as a whole. Practiced as an excellent adjunct to Western medicine, Qigong precsription therapy may successfully treat people with conditions which Western medicine finds resistant or ambiguous.
In China and more recently in the United States, doctors have applied qigong in hospitals and clinics to treat individuals suffering from a variety of ailments. Qigong prescription therapy can be used to help treat people with cancer and help reduce or eliminate side effects from radiation and chemotherapy. It may help in treating cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson disease and post-stroke syndrome. It is especially useful in helping treat any kind of chronic pain, and chronic disorders of the digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous systems.
Like any other system of health care, qigong is not a panacea but a highly effective health care practice. Many health care professionals recommend qigong as an important form of complementary and alternative medicine.
