Master of Medical Qigong
The Master of Medical QiGong certification provides the clinician with the ability to create a practice of energy medicine at a deeper level. This program builds on the Medical Qigong Therapists knowledge of purgation, tonification and regulation, and diagnostics while working in a clinical setting. Students delve into more advanced topics on energetic Taoist alchemy, energetic anatomy and physiology of the 7 meridian systems.
Additionally, energetic systems not covered in acupuncture schools are discussed in detail to have a well-rounded education of the energetic systems working synergistically. We introduce the treatment of spiritual disorders, psychological energetics and the treatment of cancer with Clinical Qigong Therapy. The use of food energetics as medicine is explored in this program so that clinicians can work with all aspects of external qi with their patients. Herbs and essential oils are also covered. Clinic time, self cultivation and lecture are the standard part of each class session with ongoing clinic work outside the classroom to enhance the students ability. Graduates are tested and all conditions of program completed in order to receive their diploma.
Attend all class dates, complete the at home self development practice and pass all testing for this certification.
All students must be a Medical Qigong Therapist, either through the Inner Strength’s certification program or another recognized system. Students coming in from other systems may be required to pretest for this course, and/or have private training time with Dr Cibik prior to the course to assure their comfort level in the class.
The second year of study builds on the first year of training “the spark” of Gnosis thought. Delving deeper into the Classical Chinese medicine of understand the Luo channels the 8 Extraordinary channels and the Divergent channels and how each of these meridians systems can be used alone for successful treatment of any known pathological factor mental or physical in the energy matrix.
Having a cleaner energetic matrix themselves, the students can now increase their energetic sensitivity and enhance their protection from pathological factors themselves. With this newfound sensitivity, we now can progress into subtleties of energetic workings with herbs, plants, oils and food. Not just picking and choosing foods, herbs and oils by their nutritive properties, but by their energetic properties.
We will once again bring together psychology, faith and belief using the mind or the cerebral cortex, and somatic movement (mind/body) that incorporate the energy body of all great healing traditions into a one method. Rather than try to re-invent an already sound system of healing, we will just explain the terminology in cross-cultural terms so that the client/patient can benefit from 5,000 years of empirical wisdom.
Case studies as completed in medical school are assigned, the only difference being that we use the energetic matrix to assess and understand “root” causes of pathology at the Qi level. Plenty of clinic time to practice the essential skills necessary to run ones own business are also a par t of this course.
As in the first course, Classical Chinese medicine is the foundation of the course. However, we delve deeper into the energetics of accupoints that are not taught in acupuncture schools. Internal pathways are taught that connect accupoints to the internal systemic flow of all the meridian systems.
Class size in limited in order for there to be quality dissemination of information and personal guidance to each student. All classes have mandatory attendance with this intensive program.
If a student misses class days, he/she must schedule private training with Dr. Cibik within three months of the missed class, at an additional cost not covered by tuition.

The Certification will be awarded after the completion of the of training, passing grades on written and oral practical exams, case studies submitted and all financial obligations met.
