Chi Gung is a holistic therapy working on the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual levels. This course will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to practice Chi Gung, with a comprehensive understanding of its health and wellbeing benefits.

The course begins by laying the landscape of alternative practices and where Chi Gung sits within the different systems of medicine and how moving energy is used in other practices. The Chi Gung Diploma Course discusses the difference between Western and Eastern medicines and the difference between alternative and complementary therapies before introducing you to various popular complementary and alternative therapies.

You’ll be guided through the practices of meditation and visualisation, discovering what each is, the benefits and how to practice them. This knowledge will then be used with additional skills learned later in the course; self-reflection, focus, listening to your body, understanding the importance of stilling the body and mind, and grounding yourself. You’ll also explore the various energy systems and methods of energy movement.

Having deepened your overall knowledge, you’ll focus in on Chi Gung, as the course explains what it is and how you will benefit from taking up the practice, whether for medical/healing reasons, strength/stamina or for spiritual enlightenment. You’ll discover where it came from, how it evolved, how it is practised today and some important names in modern-day Chi Gung.

Chi (or qi), the life energy flow that runs in, through, and out your body, is a fundamental of the Chi Gung practice. You’ll be guided through what it is and provided with practical instruction on correct posture and breathing with Chi, as well as some basic techniques for moving Chi around your body.

As with anything you do in life, preparation is as, if not more, important than the action itself. If you prepare well, it is likely to lead to a successful outcome. The Chi Gung Diploma Course guides you through the simple preparations you must make before commencing your practice and how to carry out an opening exercise.

In Chinese philosophy, the five elements are mapped to areas of the human body. You will learn about the focus of each of these elements and the association between these and chi. You will then go on to follow Chi Gung exercises for each element and exercises for specific needs, which will improve health and vitality, heal the body from illness and injury, and develop the powers of the mind. You will also be provided with 3 case studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of Chi Gung therapy.

In addition to teaching you about Chi Gung itself, the course goes further by providing guidance on starting your own Chi Gung business. You’ll learn about the different types of business and how to write a business plan, market your business, navigate the legalities of setting up and running a business and lead a Chi Gung class.

Who is this course for?

With comprehensive materials on complementary and alternative therapies and the theory and movement of chi, the Chi Gung Diploma Course is accessible to those who are completely new to this system of treatment. Seasoned practitioners of similar forms of treatment will enjoy the exhaustive detail and explanations of Chi Gung itself, its benefits, and how to practice its techniques.

The course will also be beneficial to those wishing to start a Chi Gung business, as it offers guidance on getting set up and tips for success.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
