What is Qi Healing & How Does it Work?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) qi is the generic term for the various types of energy that power our bodies including the bio-electrical and chemical processes that are the “alive” aspect of our biology.

Without qi (energy) we are just a collection of organic matter (skin, bones, etc).

Qi is responsible for the repairing and healing of our body.

In TCM you’ll often see illness described in terms of qi imbalances or blockages.

Treating these issues can involve balancing the qi, removing blockages and focusing qi to areas that need it.

Different types of TCM will accomplish this in different ways. Herbalists, for example, will use herbs to stimulate the qi while an acupuncturist will use needles.

One branch of TCM called Fa Kung (emission work) specializes in working directly with the qi.

You can see an example of this in the lesson “Strengthen Mind Intent & Heal Others” of The Practical Guide to Internal Power:

Fa Kung Universal Energy Emission and Transmission is one of the older and more secret schools of qigong. It includes how to absorb, build, emit and heal with qi. This includes sensing, interpreting, balancing & healing specific injuries & illness with qi.

A fa kung qi healing practitioner can remove blockages and focus qi directly to any area that needs it. The basic healing method involves several steps.

1. The practitioner scans and feels the subtle energy field and feels for disturbances and differences in the field.

There are as many different sensations as there are injuries and maladies. The initial learning process for this must be directed by an experienced teacher who can help the beginner decipher and interpret what they are feeling.

2. Either pull out the blockage and any accumulated stagnant/negative and then replace it with Universal Qi or simply focus Universal Qi to the area.

3. Seal the area so that the Qi can flow and the energy field is put back into its natural state once again.

Does Qigong completely cure every malady known to man including broken bones protruding through the skin and allow people to live to be several hundreds of years old?

No, of course not! Every type of TCM has it’s strengths and weaknesses.

Normally it is best to get broken bones physically set by an emergency care physician who specializes in such things.

So far I have not found an ancient 200+ old qigong master or anyone even close.

What I have found are teachers in their 80’s and 90’s that are still very spry and healthy leading very full active lives.

In our culture I see a lot of folks between the ages of 29 and 79 who look like they are many years older than their birth age and who have many physical problems that they have to deal with on a daily basis.

My Fa Kung healing course you’ll learn how to use this powerful healing method, not only for your own health and wellbeing, you’ll also learn how to help others benefit from this method.

Next week (March 15th) this course will go on sale for 3 days. Be sure to keep an eye out for it.

  1. You speak of “Universal Qi”. Is this different from regular qi? This, with something else you wrote about the specific Fa Kung method you teach (I forget where), makes it sound a little similar to Reiki in as much as you are not working with your own qi reserves but simply channeling qi ‘from the universe’ as it were. Am I even in the ballpark here? Thanks : )

      Hi Greg,

      Yes, you are in the right ballpark. We’ve seen a lot of healers make themselves sick by using their own chi. Our method actually increases your energy while you are doing healing work. It never depletes you, and it does not require you to stop and recharge like some methods. The way we teach Fa Kung, it is healthy for both the healer and the one being healed.
