For many of those who practice QiGong, it is an individual mind-body exercise, like yoga. But there is also a form of QiGong that focuses on healing.
QiGong practices you do yourself can be distinguished from what is called external qigong, which is a practice that resembles distant Reiki healing.
In external QiGong, a QiGong therapist diagnoses patients according to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine and then uses “emitted Qi” to facilitate healing.
QiGong healing is seen as affecting the balance and flow of energy, enhancing functionality in the body and the mind.
QiGong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one’s mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. There are likely thousands of qigong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi.
QiGong exercises consist of a series of orchestrated practices including body posture, movement, breath practice, and meditation, all designed to enhance Qi.
What are the Benefits of QiGong?
QiGong opens the flow of energy in meridians used in acupuncture and Chinese medicine. It enhances our ability to feel the Life Force underlying the physical world and to deepen our communication with it.
Slow gentle QiGong movements can warm tendons, ligaments, and muscles, and vitalize vital organs and connective tissue. QiGong can promote the circulation of blood, synovial, lymph, and other body fluids.
Thousands of studies have shown QiGong effective in helping to heal life challenges ranging from high blood pressure, chronic illness, emotional frustration, mental stress, and spiritual crisis.
QiGong has also been found to help reduce depression and relieve stress. In a study, those who practiced qigong experienced less anxiety and better moods as compared to those who didn’t. QiGong was also shown to have positive effects on bone and cardiovascular health and improve balance.
QiGong may lessen chronic fatigue, a common disorder that causes extreme tiredness. In a study, 64 people with chronic fatigue experienced improvements in their symptoms after four months of practicing qigong. They had better mental functioning and less fatigue than those who didn’t. If you’re tired all the time, and your doctor has ruled out any medical conditions, qigong could help.
QiGong may boost the immune response to fend off unwanted guests like viruses, bacteria, and diseases. Several studies found that qigong had a noticeable impact on immune functioning. It increased levels of certain immune cells in people who practiced it regularly.
QiGong may improve well-being in people with cancer. Many people who are undergoing cancer treatment need relief from side effects and the stress of treatment. Often, they turn to alternative medicine practices like acupuncture, yoga, or massage. QiGong may also help as well, and some evidence suggests that using qigong can help patients with cancer fight fatigue and mood disturbances.
Keep in mind that qigong is not an overnight fix. Like any exercise, you need time to master it to get the full benefits.
About Master Sio’s QiGong Healing Sessions
Here’s a little background that could be helpful to you during our healing sessions.
The best results come if you have zero expectations, stop setting intentions, forget about mantras, forget about focusing on this and that. Some other healing traditions advocate those techniques and that is well and good with their healing philosophy. I respect all traditions.
Mine is different from others I’m aware of. I ask only that you surrender to what is.
This healing modality is so simple yet majestic, deep, pervasive, and intense in its ability to manifest positive changes on levels physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. The connection is direct to Source.
I do not need to interview you as a client because you’ll be doing the healing yourself. I merely lead you to a place of absolute calm and stillness where you realize and accept just how powerful you are – powerful enough to perform healing on yourself.
I do not teach healing at this time, mainly because the way I learned Hawaiian Kahuna Healing was by assimilation, not by manuals or any verbal or written curriculum. I initially gained unusual insights as a tiny youngster by sitting quietly at my paternal aunt’s feet and watching what she did. She healed people just by looking at them. Later I acquired more knowledge by living with indigenous healing masters in New Zealand, Tonga, Fiji, Tahiti, Australia, Rarotonga, Vanuatu, Kiribas, Samoa, and, most recently, in Hawaii in the high cool caves of the Big Island.
In Hawaii, I lived in total silence (no talking) for over six months with four powerful kahunas (native healers) in various caves and lava tubes. Life on the surface seemed punishingly ascetic but in reality, it was the most sacred and profound way for them to pass on their art to me.
I learned from kahuna who were indigenous Hawaiians born locally with a lineage of traditional healing dating back to pre-Western contact. I earned their trust and respect incrementally over time and I feel most fortunate to have received the privilege of living with the masters and to learn by assimilation.
In the beginning, it was tough not being able to speak to the masters or to hear them even, but in time I was amazed to discover I could actually “converse” with them without verbalizing.
I’m often asked why I request that people keep their eyes closed while I work. It is to help them relax and be more open and receptive to shifting their energy into high gear. Keeping their eyes open would be like having them watch a movie while I try to do the healing. It won’t work, at least not as effectively.
I do not burn sage or incense or perform intricate “chop, scrape and toss” motions or rituals as some healing forms require. In my tradition, all that is totally unnecessary. One becomes a healer after attaining an extremely high vibration which can be transmitted through the eyes, the hands, or simply physical presence with absolutely no physical contact.
Quite often when I walk into a workshop that has not yet begun, several people start swaying, some hands and feet move involuntarily, a few start to feel their bodies swaying, and so on. Occasionally in a restaurant, a person at the next table would exhibit similar behavior. I do not “amp up” my vibration in such instances. It just happens.
Healing can be performed on a person thousands of miles away, and I have clients living as far away as Germany, Africa, New Zealand and many states in the US. A personal 1-on-1 healing is always the most powerful but it isn’t affordable for everyone. However, some dramatic healings do occur in the group sessions as well, sometimes more so than in private ones. Many factors come into play and I shall delve into those in another email.
My healing works with or without music.
There is also some common sense involved. I wouldn’t, for example, choose as a setting the middle of a battlefield or a freeway. I play some “white noise” because it helps shut out distracting traffic and other dissonance. I sometimes chant because in Hawaiian it is a chant of gratitude for what we have to enjoy and, besides, it’s the favorite chant of one of the masters I lived within the caves.
I hope these thoughts may be helpful in your healing experience.
