When their Prenatal Qi develops, some people have strong Qi and can heal others. For example, if one of your friends were suffering from a stomach ache or a shoulder strain, you would just touch them where the pain was and suddenly they would find that the pain had gone and they felt much more relaxed. This is because you transmitted your Qi to the blocked area of your friend's body, smoothing the channels and releasing the ntlgative energy. You become, in effect, an acupuncturist who does not use needles. ThIS is how I work with my patients. If your Qi is strong enough you can transmit it to people at a distance, you do not need to touch the person to heal them.
Sometimes, when you are at home and find yourself thinking of a close friend, suddenly he rings you and you suppose it must be coincidental. Or maybe you are talking with your friend and are both thinking the same -even wanting to speak at the same time. All these things can happen because your Prenatal Qi has developed and areas on the upper part of y'our head, which we call Sky-eye and Sky-door ,acupuncture points on the head), have opened, so that you can receive messages from outside. You know what other people are thinking and doing even when they are far away from you.
People in the West have a tendency to home in on the techniques and to gloss over the importance of the energy, the Qi, which is the essential element in the process. Healers are constantly giving their Qi to others during the healing process, and so they must constantly recharge their own Qi through Qigong practice. If you are attempting to heal others, and are not yourself healthy through practising the movements and meditation of Qigong, you will transmit negative rather than positive Qi -which must, of course, be avoided. If, for example, your patient had a back problem and after treatment finds their heart beating faster, you could well have passed a heart problem of your own on to the patient.
One of my patients, Sophie D., was suffering from breast cancer. She came to see me because she has more faith in Chinese medicine than in Western medicine; also she had seen my Qigong demonstrations and attended some of my seminars. After five treatments her condition had improved considerably -not just because my Qi cured her, but because she followed my instructions and every day did the exercises I had given her. Then one of the lumps disappeared. I believe that one day she will totally recover just by keeping up with the exercises.
Qigong therapy does not just rely on the therapist -it also needs the patient's co-operation, otherwise it will not work. Therapist and patient must work together to improve the condition.
Jean K. had suffered from the utterly debilitating condition of myalgic encephalomyelitis (also known as ME or post-viral syndrome) for many years. Then one of my students introduced her to me, and after five treatments she was able to go back to her studies and her job at the BBC. She said that during the treatments she could feel my Qi running through her body, making her feel warm and comfortable. Afterwards she felt more energetic and much stronger.
She also benefited from the exercises and meditation that I taught her. Qigong is especially effective in treating chronic and debilitating conditions such as ME as it boosts your energy levels. This is because during practice your body enters an energy storing phase, similar to that experienced when you are very relaxed or asleep. Oxygen consumption drops and the metabolic rate decreases so that if you remain in this phase for a reasonable length of time while still awake, you stop the loss of energy from your body and facilitate the storage of the fresh energy obtained by your body.
Jo C. suffered from backache and had no feeling in her legs, particularly in her feet. She could not feel what she was walking on, and had many times scalded her feet by unknowingly putting them into water that was too hot. For two years she had not worked and had been unable to go out. Then someone introduced her to me. After three months of treatment she went back to work, and her back had become much stronger. Although she still has no feeling in her feet, she finds life much easier.
During these treatments, I used my Qi to make my patients' energy stronger, to get rid of negative Qi, to smooth the channels, to open the acupuncture points and to strengthen the internal organs. When the internal organs achieve balance, the illness goes. But after the treatment the patient needs to conserve his or her energy. No matter how famous the Qigong master who uses his energy to help you, if you do not keep the energy but use it to enjoy your life, playing games, chatting with your friends or watching TV, you will become exhausted and will regress to how you were before your treatment.
After treatment I teach my patients special exercises and meditation for their particular condition. During treatment I use my own energy to help them, and afterwards they practise Qigong exercises at home and create energy equal to that given in the treatments, so that they do not need me any more. The problem diminishes as their energy gets stronger, and in the end it is eliminated. In this way the illness is cured and immunity is built up so it will not recur.. rilis is the best part of Qigong practice and also the best kind of treatment to give any sick person, as it has no side-effects.

Looked upon as a mysterious practice, reiki originated from Japan, around 1922. Started by a Japanese Buddhist, this practice of purported healing basically uses the palm of an individual to emit positive healing energy unto the patient. Sometimes reiki is referred to as oriental style treatment by professional medical bodies.
