Medical Qigong Therapy is an ancient form of Chinese energetic medicine, dating back at least 5000 years. It is one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The other three branches are acupuncture, herbal medicine and massage. Training to be a Medical Qigong Therapist has been passed down from Shamanic healers from ancient times. Aum Song combines this esoteric knowledge with Jin Shin Do Acupressure Theory and modern psychotherapy.
Qigong therapy works with the body, mind and spirit to move stagnant energy patterns and then tonify and balance the body, creating lasting health, vitality and wellbeing. Qigong Therapy is based on balancing the energy flows in the body "meridians" which are invisible channels of energy or qi that flow between the organs and the surface of the body. In a healthy body the energy flows smoothly yet during our lives we often experience trauma, whether physical or emotional which causes the energy in the body to become obstructed. Qigong therapy helps to move blocked energy and return the body to a state of balance. Qigong Therapy is a powerful tool for healing the root of illness where lasting health may occur. It is also a very effective form of preventative medicine.
