Cancer and Qigong Article:

An Integrative Approach: Conventional Medicine, Cancer and Qigong – Published in Qi Journal, Winter 2018.

An article about applying an integrative approach to healing from cancer.

An integrative approach means using conventional medicine, such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery with regular Qigong practice to help boost the immune system and deal with symptoms and side effects.

This article includes three case study examples of Qigong authors who adopted this approach to heal from cancer. It also contains a review of a research study on the benefits of Qigong on ‘quality of life’ for cancer sufferers.


Qigong and Encounters with Spontaneous Qi Articles:

A series of articles on the lesser well-known practice of Spontaneous Qigong.

Spontaneous Qigong is where you let the body’s own qi lead the movments instead of you consciously leading the movement. This can result in varous spontaneous types of body movements. It is believed to be an effective way for the body to clear its own Channels of blockages.
