Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is composed of the following four areas: acupuncture, herbology, T’ui Na, and mind healing Qi gong. Acupuncture is the stimulation of electro energy points on the skin, 361 points to treat over 2,000 health problems. Herbology is composed of 250,000 botanicals of which 5,000 have been researched by the Chinese. It was found that 350 to 500 of those herbs researched by the Chinese satisfy the needs of today’s modern day practice, “The Energy of Herbs”. T’ui Na manipulation is used to correct structural derangement. Mind healing Qi gong is done through various postures, knowledge of meridian pathways, breathing techniques, and YI (mental intent or mind force), healing powers are generated and focused to heal oneself and /or others. Qi gong, especially from P-8, Lao Gong, emits a bipolar electro magnetic energetical power flow that heals. This is the energy that runs the body and heals the body. It is what we lose when we die. Dr. Yennie will present the Ba Gua Xun Dao Gong style taught at Master Sujian Wan’s Chinese Medical Qigong Ba Gua Xun Dao Gong General Headquarters, Beijing, China.
