Medical Qigong Certification Training


Our training program is comprised of four progressive levels of certification: Medical Qigong Practitioner (MQP), Therapist (MQT), Masters (MMQ), and Doctorate (DMQ).  Certification courses are taught in an intensive format that allows students an immersion experience with adequate time for practical application and personal integration.


Medical Qigong Clases


The entry level to the training program, the 220 hour Medical Qigong Practitioner (MQP) training provides an exceptional foundation to the theory and unique applications of Medical Qigong Therapy.  

Medical Qigong Classes


The 580 hour Medical Qigong Therapist (MQT) expands foundational materials through advanced diagnostic skills and treatment strategies.  Specialized training addresses etiology, pathogenesis, and treatment of specific disease patterns.



The 1050 hour Masters of Medical Qigong (MMQ) certification emphasizes a greater comprehension and manifestation of the complex relationship between physical, emotional, and mental capacities.  



Each level of training is comprised of 5 intensive course seminars.

The first three levels of certification (MQP, MQT, MMQ) are comprised of four core didactic courses and one clinical seminar (i.e. Five seminar courses per level of certification). Certification levels also require external clinical hours and supplemental study. The courses are scheduled so that students may complete a level of certification (MQP, MQT, MMQ) within an academic year. The Doctorate of Medical Qigong (DMQ) certification is a minimum of two years study beyond the MMQ and includes extensive ancillary requirements. 



Our Curriculum

The Medical Qigong training is a multi-level certification program designed to teach the theory and practical application of Medical Qigong Therapy.

Through academic coursework and hands-on experiential training, students effectively learn both personal cultivation and the clinical applications of Chinese Energetic Medicine.

At Red Thread Institute we emphasize individualized personal instruction that offers students a hands-on approach, allowing the 'energy' of Energetic Medicine to be a  quantifiable experience,  in an environment which stresses the analytic as well as intuitive approach to comprehension so that all learning styles may flourish and excel.

The curriculum for our program is the distilled synthesis derived from multiple medical universities, institutions, and hospitals throughout China.  Originally developed by the International Institute of Medical Qigong and The International College of Medical Qigong, our curriculum is fashioned after the Medical Qigong College at the Hai Dian University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Beijing.

The Chinese Ministry of Health honored this curriculum in 2005 as meeting the Chinese standards for academic and clinical instruction.  This was the first time a foreign Medical Qigong curriculum has been approved by the Chinese government (Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education), and its academic standards and clinical protocols formally accepted by a Traditional Chinese Medicine University. 

The clinical standards and component of the curriculum are time tested by the Qigong Health & Science Department of the Xiyuan Hospital (Beijing, China),
