What Is The Difference Between Health Qigong and Medical Qigong?
There is a vast difference between Health Qigong, which is a set of exercises used for general health purposes and Medical Qigong. Medical Qigong is used specifically for diagnosing, treating and preventing medical conditions (pathogens). For example, in Health Qigong a typical Spleen exercise would maintain healthy Qi within the Spleen and Stomach. In Medical Qigong, the patients Spleen syndrome could be diagnosed as a 'Shi' type (Damp/Cold) or a 'Xu' type (deficiency/sinking), in which case the Medical Qigong Practitioner would decide whether to use purgation or tonification prescriptions. Like all Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities it treats the patient holistically. Medical Qigong is recognised as one of the four branches of Chinese Medicine - acupuncture, herbal medicine, and tui na (medical massage) being the others. It is considered that Medical Qigong formed the energetic foundation from which the other modalities originated. Medical Qigong incorporates concepts such as Daoism, Buddhism and Shamanism and therefore involves the interaction of Body, Mind, Spirit, Soul and the Divine. The Wu Yi Doctors (Shamans) combined word (sound) with imagination, visualisation and powerful affirmations. The skillful Wu Yi Doctors would therefore treat diseases of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body. Medical Qigong as a therapy draws on the skills of the Wu Yi by incorporating chanting and incantations, Qi and Shen emission, Qigong massage, prayer, prescriptive exercises, meditations and sound therapy. There is even reference to Daoyin and the prescriptive Ren Wu Zang in The Yellow Emperor's Internal Classic.
