What is “qi”? Some simply refer to it as “energy.” But “energy” only seems to apply to a physical experience. The “energy” to complete a task. The “energy” to heal. Qi is energy, yes, but it is much more. Qi is known as “The Great Communicator.” Qi is the means by which our consciousness interacts with the world around us and the means by which our consciousness interacts with Source (Tao in Taoism).
Qi is the means by which our organs communicate with one another in our bodies. One of the places it resides is in the blood and other fluids in the body, and thus it can be utilized to understand flow patterns in the body.
In utilizing one’s “qi” to help another heal, the practitioner must be able to assess just what is communicating within the vessel, and what isn’t. Where is the qi in excess, and where is it deficient? Healing someone with qi, is not simply a matter of blasting the client and hoping for the best. It is a process of interaction and understanding of just what the client needs at the time of treatment.
Healing with qi requires the practitioner to be a student of themselves; for there is no better way to understand the concept of “qi” than to study it and cultivate it throughout one’s own experience.
Healing with qi requires patience.
A Medical Qigong practitioner’s objective is to work themselves out of a job. The practitioner will teach the client about what “qi” is and just how to understand how it is flowing within their own body. There are various methods utilized for this practice, but it is up to the practitioner and the understanding of the client’s own unique mind to determine just what exercises and practices will be prescribed for the furthering of understanding and the facilitation of healing.
