Medical Qigong: Therapy and Surgery

Medical Qigong Therapy is useful for treating patients before, during and after surgery. Qi Emission can be used in order to reduce the patient's bleeding, enhance the immune system, minimize the risk of infection, strengthen the body, and accelerate the recovery rate. Medical Qigong modalities are involved in the following aspects of Operative Therapy: preoperative therapy, surgery, postoperative therapy, follow-up therapies and remedial prescriptions.


Medical Qigong and Preoperative Therapy

Although Medical Qigong Therapy has had incredible results in healing and/or stopping the progression of certain diseases, it is not a "cure-all," and has, as do other clinical modalities, its limitations. Currently, conventional medicine only utilizes three modalities for treating illnesses and injuries (in particular tumors and cancer); these include surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. In the healing process, undergoing surgery is sometimes unavoidable and should never be viewed by the patient as a defeat, but only as a necessary step in the healing transition.

Having to face surgery should not be viewed as a negative reflection of a Qigong doctor's healing potential, nor a patient's inability to heal. Surgery should be viewed as a necessary life saving intervention that can firmly establish the patient on the road towards health and recovery. It is a positive affirmation of the patient's commitment to getting well and taking responsibility for healing. Sometimes, surgery is an inescapable progression towards health and healing.

Before surgery, it is important for the doctor to consider the emotional relationship that the patient has developed with his or her tissues. The doctor must also evaluate the mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual aspects of a disease.

The doctor's involvement with the patient and the tissues which are about to be surgically removed is also extremely important, since this emotional interaction affects the patient's healing potential. For healing to take place a trusting relationship with the patient must first be solidly established; this includes the compassionate attitude of the doctor towards the tissues that will be removed. The doctor will model the correct attitude to facilitate an accelerated healing for the patient. It is believed that scar tissue formation is in direct proportion to the patient's fears and negative expectations surrounding the surgery. These fears and expectations form energetic and spiritual attachments to the physical body. Often the patient attempts to disconnect these spiritual attachments out of fear and survival instinct.

Patients are not only enveloped in physical tissue, but are also spiritually, emotionally and energetically interconnected with their bodies. This energetic attachment includes any and all organs, organ systems or areas of their bodies which can be operated on.
