If you have filed your taxes and signed on the dotted line, then good for you! If this is your first time it’s not that far-fetched that you have joined society; contributed to keeping the wheels oiled and turning so our country can keep moving forward. Okay, sometimes I can get carried away.

Energy Healing with Qiqong

Lisa VanOstrand teaches qigong and qigong energy healing for 3 Treasures School of Medical Qigong in various places in the United StatesLisa VanOstrand teaches qigong and qigong energy healing for 3 Treasures School of Medical Qigong in various places in the United States, mainly Florida and New York.

What is Qigong?
Qigong is a combination of two ideas: Qi” (pronounced chee), means air, breath of life, or vital energy that flows through all things in the universe and Gong” (pronounced gung, as in lung) means the skill of working with, or cultivating, self-discipline and achievement. Together, Qigong means the skill of cultivating vital energy, or the ability to work with the electromagnetic energy of the body. The body is enveloped by Qi or electromagnetic currents, affecting both internal and external organ functions. As Qi is the fundamental energy that sustains life, it is present in every cell of the body.

What is Medical Qigong?

Medical qigong, is one of the four main branches of Chinese medicine along with acupuncture, herbal medicine, and medical massage. Medical Qigong is the study of the energetic map of the body based on classical and alchemical Chinese Medicine as well as more traditional Chinese Medicine. Medical Qigong techniques can be practiced on oneself for self-cultivation or on others as healing protocols. Prescription exercises, meditations and healing protocols, enhance body, mind and spirit and can also address the energetics of specific disease patterns.

3 Treasures School of Medical Qigong is a private, post secondary degree-granting institution recognized by the Florida Department of Education and Florida Commission on Independent Education under the authority of Florida State Statutes, Section 1005.06. Unfortunately, because of the New York state laws, the doctoral program will only be offered in Florida. The first class will be on Detoxification. The healing of all chronic diseases must begin with detoxification. This class will include all new material including: Medical Qigong exercises, healing protocols, as well as dietary/nutritional suggestions to support this process.

3 Treasures School of Medical Qigong has been accepted by the American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia (AOBTA) as a candidate for their Council of Schools and Programs (COSP). This is quite an honor and I believe will add a level of prestige not only to Medical Qigong but also for graduates from the program. AOBTA is a national recognized organization that supports Asian bodywork and specifically recognizes Medical Qigong as one of its’ healing modalities.
