Exciting and Historic News!!
This may be the most exciting news in the field of Mind-Body Energetics — Qigong and Tai Chi. The official textbook of the Chinese medical schools Chinese Medical Qigong has been translated into English. In China this text book is in its third edition and is entitled Qigong Study in Chinese Medicine (Zhong Yi Qigong Xue).
This is a historic event in the history of medicine as it reveals that self-initiated practice of Qigong, with encouragement from health care providers, has a central place in the Chinese health care system.
Dr. Jahnke Selected as a Key Translator
This is also historic for us here at the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi (IIQTC) as our Director, Dr. Roger Jahnke, OMD, was selected to do the final phase of translation of the clinical chapters of this important book. Dr. Jahnke took his first Tai Chi class in 1967, commenced the study of Chinese Medicine in 1971 and was graduated as a doctor of Chinese medicine in 1975. In his 30 years of clinical practice, he became the chief of staff of one of the earliest integrative medicine clinics in Santa Barbara California.
Dr. Jahnke is the co-founder of the National Qigong Association, the founder and director of the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi (IIQTC), and the author of two of the most widely respected and best selling books on Mind-Body Practice— Tai Chi and Qigong — The Healer Within (Harper-Collins) and The Healing Promise of Qi (McGraw-Hill).
Chinese Medical Qigong is the result of the collaborative efforts of more than thirty faculty members in a dozen colleges and universities of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China. It represents the highest level of academic research and the broadest compilation of clinical applications on medical Qigong ever assembled. This unique book is a systematic survey of the history, methods, transformation, and development of ancient Chinese mind-body cultivating skills, known as Qigong.
This text focuses on medical Qigong as a health and medical discipline of study in the 21st century, focused especially on cultivating Qi for the health and healing. It offers philosophy, theory, background, techniques, and both the historic and contemporary clinical methods for refining and implementing body-mind exercise in the framework of life nurturing and healing.
