Course benefits

Our guest teacher is Master Wei Qi Feng, a qigong master of worldwide repute, being a leading practitioner and teacher of Zhineng Qigong with 20 years teaching experience.  In 2010 he established his own Qigong Training Centre in China, where he has been joined by a number of high-level teachers. This is his first visit to New Zealand; he will be joining us here after teaching in a number of European countries. Zhineng Qigong is the most widely practiced form of qigong in the world.  It is a comprehensive system that is easy to learn and practice and can bring powerful healing effects.

As acupuncturists, the key ingredient for assisting others in their healing process is qi. In order to be truly effective, we must always be working on our understanding of qi.  This is a wonderful opportunity for acupuncturists to cultivate your own qi and health, and develop your ability to sense and work with qi with your clients. Having a regular practice of qigong and combining acupuncture with qigong healing will strengthen you as an acupuncturist and enhance treatment outcomes. The course is suitable for beginners through to advanced qigong students and anyone with an interest in deepening their understanding and practice of qigong.

The full course is approved for 32 hours CPD by the NZRA.
