Medical Qigong

Grief Loss Mary Anne Cook Smith Center

Join Kevin Bi-monthly on Mondays 6:00pm – 7:00pm! This is an all levels introduction to the practice of Medical Qigong. You will learn about the human energy system or subtle body through lecture, movement and an energetic transmission and meditation.

Medical Qigong is widely used in China for Oncology support and is very helpful for helping the body through any type of cancer as well as maintain physical and emotional health through cancer treatment.

Qigong when it is done in a medical setting can work as a medical intuitive reading to get a more tangible feel for the deeper layers leading to any disease process, as well as provide a roadmap to healing and transformation. This includes working with the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual layers to get a full and complete picture of healing and cultivating wellness. This is very helpful in oncology support as Medical Qigong can help make these layers more tangible and manageable to provide a complete healing process.
