Medical Qi Gong, one of the branches of Chinese medicine, is a complete system of medicine that recognizes the root causes of symptoms or disease, and treats the patient as a whole. Practiced as an excellent adjunct to Western medicine, Chinese medicine may successfully treat conditions which Western medicine finds resistant or ambiguous.
The goal of Qi Gong is to correct bio-energetic imbalances and blockages in the body that accumulate throughout our lifetime. These may be due to poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, injuries, surgery, toxic influences, suppression of emotions and/or aging. Medical Qi Gong therapy assists the body in returning to its natural state of health and harmony. Pain and stress may be relieved and hormones regulated. Deep-seated emotions, which are considered a major root cause of illness within Chinese medicine, may be purged and released. This strengthens the body and regulates the internal organs, the nervous system and the immune system.
Dr. Mathis trained with Arnold Tayam at the Longivity Center for three years for her Medical Qi Gong Certification. With practice, anyone can become sensitized to the energy naturally flowing through our bodies. Because this treatment doesn’t require touching, Dr. Mathis often uses Qi Gong on very painful or sensitive animals, but it can be used on any animal. Treatment time can be 15 minutes to one hour.
