Qigong in Macao and Ireland


During our recent visit to Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Macao we were delighted to meet old friends in the TCM and Qigong field, and to make new ones.

At a conference on Health and Longevity the Irish College of TCM’s Director Tom Shanahan received a special award for presenting an outstanding academic paper.

Senior college staff have been training in Medical Qigong with their Chinese Qigong Master Professor Song Xinhong since 2000 and are happy to announce that another Qigong weekend workshop will be running in the college in June.
Book your place now to get the early bird offer.

Professor Song Xinhong was one of the event organisers for this very successful international conference.

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.

ACUPUNCTURE TCM FOR INFANTS


Acupuncture TCM is a treatment method of Traditional Chinese Medicine which can be effectively used to treat pregnant women and small infants.

The photograph shows one of the new graduates from the Licentiate in TCM Professional Acupuncture Training programme (on the left) and her recently born daughter who is helping students to learn how to make a TCM diagnosis on an infant.

This little child already has more than 9 months’ experience of Qigong practice as her mother conceived her while she was a student on the Certificate in Medical Qigong course.

Recruitment for both the Acupuncture TCM and Qigong programmes is currently on-going.

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.
