Medical Qigong Practitioner

Studying to become a Medical Qigong Practitioner is an integrated step-by-step process. Each class, each internship, and each experience builds on one another – helping you to progress into becoming a more skilled practitioner.

Open to all health care professionals, students of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and those interested in Chinese energetic medicine, the IIMQ offers a multi-level certification program designed to teach the theory and practical application of Medical Qigong Therapy.

Emphasis is placed on both analytical/deductive and intuitive approaches. Students comprehend and utilize Medical Qigong Therapy for cultivation, regulation and clinical application. The experiential aspect of the course is well balanced with a solid theoretical foundation.

Clinical Externship

In the clinical internship, the academic and theoretical knowledge gained in the medical qigong courses gets put into practical application. The objective is for the student to become confident in assessing and offering supportive treatment for patients, as well as creating and maintaining accurate clinical records.

After completing “Introduction to Assessment and Supportive Treatments” (Course 2), the student may begin to offer supportive treatment to patients and gain clinical experience.

As the student gains experience and attends more advanced courses their knowledge and abilities will increase as will their abilities to assess and offer supportive treatment to more challenging cases.

Prior to completing certification for MQP the student must provide copies of clinic log (verifying clinic hours), a sample of patient histories, and case studies (samples will be provided later).
