Qigong Exercise for Health — Dr. Ted Cibik
Founder of Ted Cibik’s Inner Strength Health & Wellness Center
Qigong is an ancient Chinese form of meditative exercise designed specifically for healing the body. Medical Qigong is a step further in understanding the energy rivers of the body, and using qi or energy to help release blockage or balance energy that has been disrupted from accident, injury or even chronic illness or traumatic situations. Dr. Ted Cibik is one of the leading Doctors of Medical Qigong in the country, whose office is north of Pittsburgh. He will be teaching an easy, yet powerful, series of qigong exercises to help you bring better health and vitality to your body and mind.
Pronounced “chee-kung”, the literal English translation of the word means “energy of life”. It is related to the Chinese practices of Tai Chi and acupuncture. People seeking alternative medicine to treat various physical and mental aliments such as migraines, chronic pain, tinnitus, digestive issues, high blood pressure, stress, anxiety and depression have had documented success with Medical QiGong. Sometimes results happen quickly or over a period of time through repeated sessions.
Additionally Medical Qigong practitioners such as Ted complete years of study and training in the discipline. This involves traditional classes in anatomy and physiology, and completion of clinical hours, along with Chinese medicine practices designed to develop the practitioners own healing energy. The practitioner becomes board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine
Qigong can benefit anyone — young or old, healthy or sick — so Dr. Cibik’s class offers a fantastic and FREE introduction to this form of alternative healing. Certified Medical Qigong practitioners are not all that common in the local area, and this seminar gives you the chance to meet one of the national leaders in the discipline. You can explore the idea of undergoing treatments with Ted and/or simply utilize the at home exercises he will teach.
This is not a traditional exercise class, you will not break a sweat, but it does involve movement and deep breathing. Comfortable attire is recommended. If you’re having trouble picturing what QiGong looks like — self-exercises are like a combination of Tai Chi and Yoga, where as Medical QiGong with a practitioner can be a mixture of massage, energy healing that looks similar to Reiki, and acupuncture.
