Doctorate in Medical Qigong – 2019 SPECIAL PROGRAM

SPECIAL DMQ PROGRAM Offering in 2019!

This special DMQ certification offering is for those who already hold their MMQ or even DMQ, and wish to deepen their skills to the next level. This special intensive version of the DMQ program holds information developed and taught by Dr. Cibik that incorporates bloodwork, nutrition and much more as a part of the curriculum. The course will include review and practice of core basics, while taking students into newly discovered  information and little known ancient practices.

For those who have attained their MMQ or DMQ with other schools, this is an excellent opportunity to add to your skillset, deepen your field of study, and hone your skills with a teacher who has 25 years of clinical experience and recognized by the NQA as a professional track educator.

For those already holding a DMQ level certification, this course allows you to gain certification as a Doctor of Advanced Medical Qigong. One of the key features of this course is translating western bloodwork panels into its’ energetic meaning. Remembering that Qi and Shen are in the blood and the blood holds the clue to health and enlightenment.

Inner Strength’s curriculum is the longest continuously running Clinical Qigong program in North America, while simultaneously providing the most technologically advanced energetic healing system available for study in the 21st century.

2019-2020 Curriculum:

In addition to the robust classical Medical / Clinical QiGong system, we will be including Herbology as an adjunct to the Medical QiGong prescriptions for various imbalances PLUS medicinal food for rebalancing pathology. These three modalities provide the most powerful combination of healing available (post-natal Qi).

The Inner Strength curriculum includes the study of the Classic books: The Huangdi Nei Jing which includes the Ling Shu and Su Wen, the Nan Jing, and the Qian Jin Yao Fang or the Thousand Ducat Prescriptions by Sun Si Miao. Additional text selections include the Ben Cao Gang Mu or the Great Pharmacopeia utilizing the Eight Extra channels theory and the study of the Zi Ran Pai or School of Naturalism. All of this is by oral tradition going back 88 generations.

The system of assessment and energetic evaluation of energetic imbalances is Classical in nature. Inner Strength’s curriculum includes Chinese & western herbals and nutritional prescriptions to fully balance post-natal Qi regulation (Food/drink/herbs/supplements + QiGong = post natal Qi).

Most importantly, we are taking Energy medicine theory as it has been taught in the west, and returning it to the roots of Classical Chinese Medicine.
