The MQP Program is a 200 hour certification program. Students are first taught Medical Qigong exercises to heal their bodies, calm their minds, and reconnect with their spirit. Students then go on to learn the foundational Medical Qigong treatment protocols for treating clients. As the program progresses, students learn advanced theories of energy purgation, tonification, regulation and cultivation, as well as advanced theories and modalities of internal organ treatment.
Students graduate from the MQP program with a very strong foundation in Medical Qigong. At the completion of this program, students are able to treat a wide variety of basic health issues.
The exams will include written, oral, and practical examinations plus clinical competencies. Successful completion of the examinations will enable the student to qualify for the more advanced 500-hour Medical Qigong Therapist (MQT) program.
There are no prerequisites for this primary level certification.
"The body is the habitation of spirit (shen) and qi. As long as spirit and qi are there, the body is healthy and strong. As soon as spirit and qi scatter, the body dies. Therefore, if you wish to preserve yourself whole, first calm spirit and qi. Understand: qi is the mother of spirit; spirit is the son of qi. Only when qi and spirit are together can you live long and not die."
