What Is Medical Qigong


 

Medical Qigong has been used in ancient China and modern-day China to treat a wide variety of illnesses and diseases. Medical Qigong is often used as complementary and alternative medicine in conjunction with Chinese Medicine herbs and even now western medicine. It focuses more on meridian pathways, electromagnetic energy, internal organs, and bones of the body.

Medical Qigong is one of the 4 main components of Chinese Medicine along with acupuncture, herbs, and tui na. Medical Qigong was modernized after the Cultural Revolution and synthesized to be used as a complementary and alternative medicine for the general public.

 

What Is Taoist Medical Qigong

History of Medical Qigong

Taoist Medical Qigong was developed over 2000 years ago. Taoist practitioners found that patients with a medical diagnosis were healing faster when incorporating dynamic exercises into their daily routine. The physician to the Emperor, Hua Tuo, created 5 Animal Qigong, the first Medical Qigong form. Its primary objectives were prevention, recovery, and rehabilitation.

Chinese medicine recognizes stagnation caused by a sedentary lifestyle, environmental factors, and suppressed or excessive emotions as the primary sources of pathogenetic stress and illness. Medical Qigong provides a self-healing tool to deal with these challenges.

 

Scientific Research on Medical Qigong

Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated the health benefits of practicing Medical Qigong. For example, research has shown that regular Qigong practice can help reduce stress, improve balance, increase flexibility, and even boost the immune system.

Furthermore, studies have also found that Medical Qigong can be effective in managing chronic pain, improving cardiovascular health, and enhancing overall well-being.

What is White Tiger Medical Qigong?


  

White Tiger Medical Qigong
 
White Tiger Medical Qigong is a very dynamic form of Qigong and is a sub-branch of Taoist Medical Qigong. The Medical Qigong practice activates vital energy flow (Qi) in the body through pulsing acupressure points and wringing out Meridians or vital energy pathways like a towel and organs like a sponge. It strengthens bones and muscles through deep stances.

White Tiger Medical Qigong takes Applied Classical Chinese Medicine Theory and combines it with concepts of modern sports science, sports medicine and neuroscience. It uses the principles of Kinetic Chains – how segments and joints in the body affect one another – and anatomy to understand physical movement, and activates the fascia lines in the body by moving the spine and extremities in all directions. It uses nerve, tissue, and joint flossing through gliding and twisting movements within the body’s full range of motion to activate circulation and blood flow.

White Tiger Medical Qigong follows Taoist principles by teaching to move and flow with the 5 Elements of Nature, embody the spirit of animals, and balance Yin & Yang. While Modern Medical Qigong focuses on symptomatic treatment, White Tiger Qigong aims at transforming emotions into new behavioral patterns through conscious movement, breathing and meditation techniques.

Meridian Qigong



Medical Qigong exercises that twist, coil and uncoil the body all the way to hands and feet wring out the meridians like a towel, squeezing out toxins, trauma, toxic emotions, healing injuries, and creating balance throughout the fascial system.

Organ Qigong



Qigong exercises that squeeze out the organs like a sponge which squeezes toxins and emotions out of the organs and allows vital energy circulation and Qi or electromagnetic energy to penetrate deeply inside the organs. It helps give rooms for the organs to relax in their sphere.

Bone Qigong



Bone Qigong exercises contain deep stances that twist and wrap the tendons all the way into the bone, improving circulation into the bones and increasing the density of bone marrow, thus, improving personal health, bone strength, boosting the immune system, and longevity.

Testimonials

Nadia Isaenko

Tevia is one of the best teachers I met. I had several classes a week with him during July-August, 2013. He is very talented as a teacher (and I know what I’m talking about;). And he is an amazing openhearted person. Every time after his class my body and soul were vibrating and pouring with unconditional love, health and strength! I’m very grateful for his profound work with me. Even after I stopped my classes and went to Moscow and was sucked into day-to-day life and didn’t practice Qigong for almost 6 moths – EVERYTHING he taught me came back to me as soon as I started. And check out his book…

James Redmon

Hi, my name is James Redmon and I have been practicing Qigong for a little over a year now. When I first became interested in Qigong, I came across some YouTube videos of White Tiger Qigong classes with Natalia. I purchased the 8 Trigram Organ Qigong introductory course, but it was not until I purchased the 8 Trigram Qigong teacher training course that I began to really experience Qigong. This Qigong has helped sharpen my focus as well as bring balance and stability emotionally. I am very pleased with the results I have received from my practice and look to share this Qigong with others in hopes they receive the benefits they need as well.

Erma Braza

I am an Acupuncturist, Mom, Student, and Happy Wanderer. I own a practice with such wonderful patients. I’ve neglected taking care of my own health. Although I’m happy, I’m exhausted. I looked for a Qi Gong Program so that I can learn how to manage the stress in my life, heal my joints, cultivate Qi, and at the same time, empower my patients to do the same. I chose White Tiger Qi Gong because I absolutely love how you bridge the gap between the roots of Daoists’ traditions and Modern Medicine. I love the repetition and how we just keep adding layers upon layers on each of the 5 Elements until it becomes second nature. I’ve been feeling more energy and flexibility. The stress is becoming more manageable and overall. White Tiger Qi Gong is such a great program to live, learn and grow from.

Doriane Gillet

Tevia is one-of-a-kind teacher and I recommend to anyone wanting to know more about Qi Gong, to improve his/her own practice, or to discover Qi Gong, to participate in one of Tevia’s trainings. He has accumulated a lot of knowledge from highly respected masters throughout the years, and it is a real honour to receive his teachings. The 3-week teacher training course I attended in September 2016 helped in my spiritual journey. I got a better understanding of my body and ways to respect it and keep in good health, through Qi gong movements, breathing techniques and meditation. It was also an amazing opportunity to meet people from around the world, who are now great friends. I am grateful to Tevia for this great experience!

Bill Grace

I would say for me the 5 Elements was the most challenging of the 3 teacher training modules I have now completed. So I am still in Perth Western Australia but being a certified White Tiger teacher has enabled me to confidently start my own Qigong practice in Perth running 3 classes a week and teaching occasional one on one lessons. So it has helped me to have the confidence to do what I am truly passionate about with my life and that is bringing Qiong to more people. I look forwards to doing more of Tevia’s wonderful training and 5 animals is next on my list. Anyone considering the program I would say go for it, it’s a high-quality well developed training with excellent support from the senior instructors.

Suzannah Lim

The White Tiger Teacher Training has been an invaluable experience. As a long term practitioner of yoga, I was surprised at the physical increases in strength and flexibility through the Qi Gong practice in such a short space of time. But more than that, the practice opened up a window of expression within that allowed me to truly connect with myself and others. Tevia is deeply passionate, with a heart of gold who truly cares for the students. I am extremely grateful that he would share his life experiences, knowledge and wisdom with us. I can’t recommend this training highly enough.
