Qigong is a powerful healing tool thousands of years old. Flowing movement that align the body to spirit, you could call it "meditation in motion". How does it work? Qigong is based on ancient Chinese medicine and the Five Element Theory, so the movements balance the organs and acupuncture meridians. Chinese once revered Qigong as a primary healing practice, even more important than acupuncture. Each Qigong movement has a medicinal quality that is very real. When done daily, qigong can heal almost anything. Jane has practiced qigong for 12 years. In that time, she has healed all her illnesses - cancer, chronic fatigue, adrenal failure, chemical sensitivities, food allergies, frozen shoulders, shingles, and digestive collapse, to name a few.
In a clinical consultation, Jane will scan your body and organs to determine their patterns and level of health. She will prescribe one or two qigong movements, and show you how to do them each day. Qigong uses no invasive therapies, drugs, or needles, and can compliment other therapies you choose to do. Here are a few of her favorite Qigong moments and their medical purposes.
This form is called "The Beholding". It is a kidney form, excellent for for releasing stagnation and depression, cultivating generosity, gratitude. It brings clarity as it culls deeply into the shadow self, mining the deep resource of your dark essence, and bringing it into the light for cleansing and purging. Your inner self emerges from the darkness renewed and enlivened. This form is deeply nourishing and revitalizing to the Kidneys.
This movement is called "Five Elements Meets Five Elements". It is associated with the Kidney meridian and the Water Element. Doing this form helps to conserve essential energy, and transform fear into wisdom. The medical purpose of the form is to lift the vital essence into the extremities, stirring the sexual and creative energies, meaning it stimulates one's ability and wish to share, to create, and to commingle. It is a wonderful tonic for reviving health after a period of sexual dormancy.
This movement is called "Serving the Plate". It is part of a series of movements that helps to balance the Yang field in the body, or the qualities of expression, courage, risk, and masculinity in every person. Doing this form can improve patience and endurance, which is nothing other than the understanding of the patterns of life, gained through experience. This form stretches the body on both left and right sides, opening the organs. It aids in grounding, stability, and transition between seasons, or opposites.
This form is called "Flame Shaping". It is part of the series that balances the Yin field, or that unfathomable resource of the receptive, wise, and feminine in every person. The clinical purpose of this form is to open the heart to expression, without giving away or losing essence, and then rooting it back again home into the heart. It helps to gently build passion and transformation, while warming the deep spirit within.
