Qigong Conference in Italy

Professor Tom Shanahan and Registrar Mary Plunkett have each been invited to make a presentation at the Nei Dao Qigong Symposium being held in Rome in October 2017.

Each presentation will reflect our experience of practising Qigong as a Medical treatment option of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) within the wider and generally more well-known context of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

Tom and Mary have been practising and subsequently teaching Qigong for Health and Well-being and Medical Qigong since 2000 and regularly visit China presenting papers at conferences and supporting the promotion of authentic, traditional Medical Qigong as taught to us by our Qigong masters in China.

We look forward to meeting fellow Qigong Masters and Presenters from around the world at the Symposium in Rome.

Congratulations to Daisy Xia

Congratulations to Daisy Xia – Daughter of our Qigong Masters Professor Song Xinhong and the late Professor Xia Shuangquan- on her graduation with a DACM from the Southern California University of Health Sciences.

Professor Song is the Honorary Head of the Medical Qigong Department of the Irish College of TCM.
We first met her daughter Daisy in 2002 on one of our regular (one month every year) visits to Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, where we intensively studied Medical Qigong with Prof Song and Prof Xia.

Daisy (Guangyu) was taught Qigong by her parents from an early age and, once she had become a university student in her home town of Guangzhou, she frequently assisted, and acted as the official translator, for the ICTCM Director and Registrar during Medical Qigong conferences which we attended in China.

We are delighted that she has fulfilled her ambition to join the field of TCM as a professional and we wish her every success in the future.
