Ancient Wisdom for a Modern World



Medical Qigong Therapist  

The first year of Inner Strength Medical QiGong focuses on foundational skills needed to progress into the following years work of MMQ and DMQ work.

The diversity of this course allows the student to eventually work in many fields, not limited to healthcare of their fellow man but with animals as well.

The foundations of ancient Taoist thought (ZouYou specialty) combined with Gnosis, and apophatic thought processes are learned as meditative resources. Unique to this course, these thought process work in direct opposite to deductive thinking. This is prelude to the Formless Taoist way of thinking and being.


The Medical QiGong Therapist certification provides the clinician with the ability to create a practice of energy medicine that allows them to recognize basic energy imbalance and provide  basic tonification qigong treatments to clients.

This course also provides safe practices for the clinician to build their own qi, for self protection, health and balance.

Tongue diagnosis, pulse diagnoses Wei Qi diagnoses are all part of the curriculum and will be used conjunctively with Classical Chinese Medicine (not necessarily 5-Element theory). The student will come up with treatment plans specific to correcting the underlying energetic pathologic imbalance leading to disease.

Clinic time using these processes is a huge part of the development of learning to run your own business and being able to operate independently.
