It may sound like a fairy tale to diagnose illness without medical instruments or to cure it without medicine, but this is often done in China. Such miracles, are made possible by the application of Qigong and have attracted much attention in and outside of China. Qigong therapy is practised by a gigong master who can emit a kind of energy called “Qi”, in order to diagnose or remove an illness. It has cured many sufferers of common diseases, as well as numerous difficult and complicated cases which had failed to respond to ordinary methods of treatment.
Let’s have a look at some typical cases reported in Chinese newspapers and magazines.
A Qigong master named Xu Yifan has succeeded in curing Julian a British dramatist, of a chronic ailment. Julian had been a ballet dancer,. At the age of 19 he contracted rheumatoid arthritis which caused atrophy in his left hand, so that his fingers curled awkwardly inwards and the phalanges became deformed. Before long his left arm became stiff and immobile. Later he became paralysed and had to walk on crutches. In march 82, after hearing about Xu Yifan from a friend. Julian came to China to seek the help of the Oigong master.
It is very pleasing to hear that Qigong is becoming more popular. When I opened the colour supplement of the Sunday Observer. I found it described Chinese medicine, herbs, acupuncture, massage and finally Qigong. It is encouraging to see Qigong being introduced to Britain in this way.
In China too, Oigong is becoming more important. This was clear to me the last time I was in China. They had just set up a big congress on Chinese medicine, and Qigong was an important topic of discussion. In Chinese hospitals. Qigong is used instead of drugs, as training the body’s resistance will allow the patient to recover faster.
When I go to hospitals in Germany and Switzerland. I see the same reaction starting to develop. Many doctors are fascinated by Chinese medicine and accept Qi and its role in harmonising the body. (more…)
