QIGONG THERAPY
Now available at the York JCC

Qigong is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that is thousands of years old. It is based on the theory that our life force energy (Qi) facilitates the flow of energy in our bodies. Illness occurs when qi becomes stagnate, creating turbid qi and results in imbalances in our physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY QIGONG SESSION?

During a Qigong session, a practitioner will direct or emit energy to the client in order to purge and release pathogens and toxic emotions from the body’s tissues, eliminate energetic stagnations, and tonify and regulate the internal organs, immune system, and energetic fields. The practitioner typically works in the second Wei Chi energy field above the client’s body.

Generally, clients find the sessions very relaxing and rejuvenating. During a Qigong session, the client remains fully clothed and relaxed, though they may feel a variety of sensations such as heat, cold, tingling, twitching, etc.

Studies have shown Qigong can be useful in managing a variety of illnesses, including chronic pain and disorders of the digestive, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems. It improves the function of the immune,
lymphatic, muscular, and circulatory systems.

This type of therapy is not meant to replace your existing care under a licensed medical doctor but rather to enhance that care. At this time, we can make no claims to cure any disease or illness.
