Hold Qi up Turku [2011-11-19]

This autumn's Finnish course in Turku was held in mid-November. It was already our third Finnish-speaking course in Turku. It is evident in the fact that many of the participants who repeated the course spoke only Finnish. Previously, almost all the repeating students have been bilingual.

The participants' positive and inquisitive attitude created a warm and friendly atmosphere, where we helped each other to learn the method. At the end of the course, the participants could share their good results. Below is a selection of the participants' own comments.

Better posture and body control

"I was told about Zhineng Qigong by an article in the newspaper Åbo Underrättelser. Qigong felt immediately right, but I did not take it up immediately because I was pregnant. I did not understand that it is very good to practice qigong while pregnant. I like this method a lot. Over the years, my posture has improved, I have better body control and I can trust that my body works. So now I dare even to go downhill skiing. In the beginning it was hard for me to find time to practise, but it also sorted itself out when I realized that I can practise in the nursery in the evening."

No side effects after cancer surgery

"By practicing Qigong, I have not had any of the harmful side-effects, which are common after cancer surgery. I can also stay calm in my noisy work environment."

Tension headaches eased

"I heard about qigong from a colleague just when I needed something new in my life. Qigong was just what I needed. I took my first course last spring and I have practised qigong daily at home since then. It has affected me positively, both mentally and physically. The tension headaches that I suffered previously have been alleviated."

The headaches disappeared

"I've had migraines all my life, and I have also been suffering from a stiff neck, which has caused tension headaches. A year ago, my migraines were really bad and it was hard for me to work with computers. I joined my first course a year ago. The course and practice afterwards has gradually eased my problems, until the headache completely disappeared after the summer course. My migraines have also been improved. Now I can work with computers and I have become calmer."

MS patients feel super energetic

"I attended my first course in the spring. It was a colleague that suggested that I join. I have MS, but after the course I felt super energetic. After this spring's course, both my balance and my body control improved. This method is right for me."
