ICMQ is Moving!

  • The ICMQ is Moving! +

    2019 will be a year of many changes for us!   The Temple of Peace and Virtue was able to fulfill a long standing dream and purchased 325 secluded acres in rural Bradyville, Tennesee, about an hour southeast of Nashville. It is a beautiful and secluded property that allows for direct contact with all the elemental forces. We are very excited about this transition and the possibilities that it will offer for our students.
    We are hoping to move the Medical Qigong training facility to this new property in Tennessee for 2019.

In the clinical externship, the academic and theoretical knowledge gained in the medical qigong courses gets put into practical application. The objective is for the student to become confident in diagnosing and treating patients, as well as creating and maintaining accurate clinical records.

After completing “Introduction to Diagnosis and Treatments” (P2), the student should begin treating clients and gaining clinical experience. As students gain experience and attend more advanced courses, their knowledge of medical qigong will increase as will their abilities to diagnose and treat more challenging cases.

Each program certification requires a certain number of clinical hours.  These are documented hours treating clients.  They do not include hours spent working on fellow students within class, or hours spent during Community Clinics, or Clinical Internship during finals week (C1, C2, or C3 programs). They can include hours spent working on fellow students after regular class hours.  An important part of learning to work with clients, however, is learning to adjust and learn from new situations, new people, and new issues.  So the student is strongly encouraged to treat a wide range of people while going through the program.

Previous to completing certification for MQP, MQT, MMQ, or DMQ,  the student must provide copies of completed Clinic Logs (verifying clinic hours), a sample of patient histories, and case studies.

The student is expected to keep complete histories on patients,  including patient histories, treatments, and prescription exercises. Samples of appropriate “Patient Intake” and “Patient History” forms are available in  the Student section or Sample Forms. The forms provided meet the minimum standard for use. If you currently already use one that is more detailed, you may continue to use it.

The provided “Informed Consent” template  meets the requirements for practitioners of Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) in California as set forth in California Senate Bill 577 (more off-site). Practitioners in other states or countries will need to research regulations within their particular jurisdiction.

For the Doctor of Medical Qigong Program, students are required to submit verification of at least 528 hours of clinical experience.  This is in addition to  hours already submitted for the MQP, MQT, and MMQ programs. 

 DMQ:  528 Hours

Online Training

In today's world of instant gratification, it has become almost the norm to offer online training.  We do not feel that online training is appropriate for our subject matter and consequently we do not offer any of our qigong training online.

Medical Qigong is an energetic practice that requires highly experiential training. We simply do not feel that it can be authentically taught in any way except in person. Our training methods are designed to give you direct experiences of complex theories. Throughout all of our training programs we present the relevant theory, and then, while that theoretical framework is still fresh in your mind, we give you an opportunity to experience that theory with tangible or energetic experiences. There is no substitute for this experience.

  • You have a relaxed and comfortable teaching style that creates and environment that allows learning to become a creative dialogue.
    Dr. Denise Douglass White, DMQ
  • Dr. Shannon is very gifted at reading people and changing his approach to meet each person where they are at.
    Catherine White, MMQ, Dip ABT
  • You are patient, funny, and generous with what you teach. It is obvious that you really want your students to learn– and are not just presenting material.
    Dr. Dawn Meltzer, DMQ, L.Ac.
