Hold Qi up Helsinki [2009-09-19]

A curious gang of new and repeating participants came to the course in Helsinki this autumn. It proved to be a nice course with many interesting discussions around both the philosophy and the movements of Zhineng Qigong. Several of the beginners chose to join this course after seeing good results of family members and friends who have been practising this method.

A woman who attended her first course in Helsinki this spring have received positive comments on her singing voice in concerts after the course. As an answer this she sent out an e-mail to every member of her choir and told them of Zhineng Qigong and how this method helped improve her voice. Two of the beginners came to this course curious of the method because of her.

Below follows some selected comments from the participants:

Better Back and Hip

"I have had serious back problems with much pain. After I started practising Zhineng Qigong, I have been able to reduce the amount of pain medication to one third. I've also had much pain in my hip. Before I started practising I had to get regular injections in the hip, but now it has been over a year since my last injection. I am also better at walking in stairs because of the training. Before I was forced to hold on to the railing and to gather strength to be able to walk up stairs. Now I can walk smoothly and easily up stairs without holding on to the railing."

"When I practice I have less problems with my back"

The Training has Reduced Nerve Pain

"I have stopped taking the medication I took because of the nerve damage in my arm. I can relate to the disease differently and it makes it easier to handle. The pain is reduced dramatically and when I am in pain, practising can help to reduce it."

Better Singing Voice

"A woman who sings in the same choir as I do has improved her singing voice by practising Zhineng Qigong. She sent out an e-mail to everyone in the choir and recommended this method. That was the reason why I wanted to try this method to improve my singing voice."

Better Neck and Mental Control

"My neck has become better thanks to the training. I've even had great use of the mental control I get from practising. It helps me control the pain better."


"Practising has made me calmer. I came here to get more motivation to continue practising."

Starting to Understand Qi

"I am a scientist and I have had difficulties accepting the concept of Qi. But while attending this course I have started to see that there is more to this than meets the eye."
