Empowering Your Healing Potential
Our energetic sessions and classes empower people to heal, and we want you to feel the same way. We operate Medical Qigong (Chinese Energetic Medicine) services in the Washington, DC metro area in Germantown, MD and Gaithersburg, MD. Our holistic consultations and energy work can allow you to regain balance so your body can heal.
Medical Qigong (skill in energy movement for healing) is the parent of all Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), including Acupuncture, Chinese herbal therapy, and Tuina. The creation of Medical Qigong as a system of healing dates back to over 5,000 years ago in ancient China. Our practitioners are taught in different systems of Qigong, with thousands of hours of training in meditation, qigong movements, internal energy movement (Nei Gong), external energy emission (qi healing), and other advanced therapies/techniques.
Many people think that Medical Qigong and Reiki are similar. While they are both valid energy healing practices, there are many differences between them. There were four Japanese versions of Reiki created around 1914. The word and practice are possibly derived from Daoist meditation techniques (qigong practices) where the Chinese word literally means “inward training,” and some of the founders like Usui studied in China and Europe before developing their versions of Reiki.
Although there may have been initial connections between Qigong and Reiki when Reiki was first developed, the practice has its own system of healing and energy understanding that is more determined by each individual practitioner’s own background and dedication to self refinement. Many Reiki systems include Reiki levels 1 & 2 in a 2-day workshop and Reiki Master in another 2-day workshop. Some variations may exist from program to program.
For Qigong study, most legitimate programs have an initial training of over 200 hours (with clinical practice) for the basic level, and hundreds of more classroom and clinical hours as one progresses to the more advanced levels. Requirements for self work (self healing and an in depth understanding of qigong movements and meditations), along with an understanding of the physical and energetic anatomy, disease manifestations, and the treeatment of symptoms of disease are all part of this training. It is important with either practice to understand the practitioner’s training and years of experience.
