MARCH FHT TALK 2020: (Friday 27th)
“Joining the dots – Qi Gong and Acupuncture”
An introduction into how Qi influences balance and harmony in the body, and an explanation of its role in the practise of Qi Gong and in Acupuncture.
The practices of Qi Gong and Acupuncture date back thousands of years, to a time when they were an integral part of a Chinese culture that understood the importance of living in balance. This talk will examine what Qi is, how it is relevant to Chinese medicine and to general healthcare, specifically, Qi Gong.
We will look at how the body and the mind can be affected by influencing the Qi, as this is what we work with when we practise Qi Gong or Acupuncture. We will also examine how Acupuncture can affect the body to enable the free flow of Qi, that in turn, can alleviate pain or at advanced levels, rebalance a person’s psychological state. Qi Gong literally means “skill of Qi”, and it uses a system of correct breathing and specific movements that open, and then connect the body. This talk will explain how these exercises can be practised by patients and therapists alike, as a form of exercise or relaxation. Finally I will show you some simple Qi Gong exercises that help to maintain mind and body health by encouraging the free of your Qi.
On the night, we will work through some simple Qi Gong exercises – suitable for all ages and abilities! Please wear loose or comfortable clothing.
Kirsty Evans is a licensed acupuncturist, having graduated from the Xian Tian College of Chinese Medicine, and a qualified Level 1 Qi Gong instructor with the Lotus Nei Gong International School of Daoist Arts.
