A Medical Qigong Therapy treatment works on improving the energy pattern of the physical body. The therapist send energy from her or his fingers and palms, to adjust the flow of Qi inside the receiver’s body.
What can it cure? The alternative healing method for both common ailments and serious health concerns, including mental, physical or emotional stress, physical pain, high/low blood pressure, headaches, asthma, cancer, anxiety or depression.
Additionally, Qigong therapy clears negative energy in the home, the office, etc. And brings harmony to the live/work environment
Patients in the qigong group reported a steady decline in depressive symptom scores beginning at the end of radiation therapy with a mean score of 12.3, through the three month post-radiation follow-up with a score of 9.5. No changes were noted in the control group over time.
The study also found qigong was especially helpful for women reporting high baseline depressive symptoms, Cohen said.
The trial was carried out on recovering cocaine-dependent individuals. The group that received the legitimate treatment showed reductions in cravings, anxiety, and depression.
Qigong has shown benefit in many different types of cancer survivors and genders in other randomized clinical trials. Benefits include: improved fatigue, distress, cognitive functioning, quality of life, and inflammation (C-reactive protein). (Oh et al.2012)
A total of 40 participants were randomized into a control group and a Qi Gong group. The Qi Gong group practiced the forms for a total of 5 times per week for a total of 8 weeks. Blood pressure reductions occurred in the Qi Gong group and not in the control group. Systolic blood pressure reduced significantly.
Tai chi, qigong and yoga are most effective in reducing the risk of mood disorders. Only 4 percent of respondents who perform these exercises have a high risk of mood disorders, as compared to aerobic exercise (4.8 percent) and walking (6.2 percent).
This indicates that although walking has a great impact in physical fitness, it is not as effective on emotional health.
“The findings are encouraging, which not only facilitate our understanding of the relationship between exercise and emotional health status, but also provide an important baseline for public education and further research in Hong Kong,” principal investigator Linda Lam Chiu-wa said.
“A growing body of carefully conducted research is building a compelling case for tai chi as an adjunct to standard medical treatment for the prevention and rehabilitation of many conditions commonly associated with age,” says Peter M. Wayne, assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and director of the Tai Chi and Mind-Body Research Program at Harvard Medical School’s Osher Research Center. An adjunct therapy is one that’s used together with primary medical treatments, either to address a disease itself or its primary symptoms, or, more generally, to improve a patient’s functioning and quality of life.
