This course presents the art of prescribing qigong exercises for a variety of pattern imbalances from a TCM perspective. Like herbs, qigong can be customized to address each patient's particular health issues. This module presents exercises that address liver pattern imbalances, spleen pattern imbalances and heart pattern imbalances. Diagnosis of each pattern is presented, followed by specific exercises, healing sounds, visualizations and meditations designed to move qi and blood to rectify these imbalances. The ability to prescribe customized qigong exercises is another tool in the Chinese medicine practitioner's toolbelt; especially useful when patients cannot or will not take herbs.
This seminar is part of our Yangsheng Qigong Program, but you need not be enrolled in the entire certificate program to attend.
