I also understand that medical qigong is a form of complementary and alternative medicine not licensed by the State of Tennessee, nor is licensing of this modality required in the State of Tennessee; energy healing in general is not regulated in the state. In practicing complementary and alternative medicine our goal is to support, rather than replace the care of my existing physician, therapist, or acupuncturist. We do not diagnose nor promise to cure any condition, disease or ailment.
I understand that the facilitators of this event are not licensed physicians or licensed health care practitioners and that the information presented is for educational purposes; it is not meant to diagnose or cure any specific ailment, disease or medical condition.
I understand that Medical Qigong is a branch of Traditional Chinese medicine. It is a system of health care that recognizes the root causes of symptoms or disease and treats the client as a whole person. Practiced as an adjunct to Western medicine, medical qigong addresses the energetic imbalances or blockages that contribute to illness. Medical qigong is not a panacea but a healing modality that has been practiced in China for over 2,000 years.
