Medical Qigong is a branch of Qigong which can not only cultivate moral virtues, strengthen breath, but also dispel diseases as well. The following two factors should be included with regard to medical Qigong.

First, to remove illnesses and keep fit, one should not only cultivate his moral virtues, but also strengthen his health. As for cultivating moral virtues, one ought to seek no fame and wealth and keep his mind in a stable state. Only by so doing, one can, and only can, attain the state of integration of man with the universe - the highest realm of Qigong. As far as Qigong training itself is concerned, getting energy and acquiring message from the universe are emphasized meanwhile, the latter is considered more important.

Second, it is necessary to have a good command of medical knowledge and basic medical techniques for those who treat patients by means of medical Qigong. For medical knowledge, one should not necessarily have wide and extensive knowledge in medicine. What is emphasized in this area is the common medical knowledge and basic medical techniques for treatment.
