Qi Healing: Ancient Art is New Again
To remedy this, a small influx of the older generation of Chinese physicians and teachers brought their classical techniques of Qi Healing to the West. As alternative forms of medicine continued to flourish, the concept of a very thorough, safe and effective energy medicine began to be noticed. As student numbers in the US and Europe increased and the next wave of teachers emerged, Qi Healing began to become more accessible to the public.
For more than 20 years, Fran Maher and Brian Coffey have been teaching the authentic seminars created by Dr. Tzu Kuo Shih (1929-2016) to enable people from all walks of life to use his methods for themselves, their loved ones, their friends, colleagues and patients.
The experience of Qi Healing is usually described as pleasant, relaxing and gentle, without side effects or discomfort. It often includes self-remedies of very specific Qi Gong exercises or meditations selected for each person to perform to correct a specific imbalance. Qi Healing qualifies as a full system of medicine because of the methods of assessment, correction, reassessment and the appropriate self-Qi Gong recommendations, all of which speed recovery and prolong the resulting balance. In Western terms, the goal of Qi Healing could be described as moving the person towards homeostasis, the normal range of function.
