Telehealth – A New Way to Treat
During the COVID-19 crisis, emotion, stress and anxiety run rampant. It is a difficult time for practitioners and patients alike, and we want to do all we can to help.
Since most practitioners are unable to see their patients right now, “telehealth” is the word of the day. Many practitioners are offering virtual consultations. They assess symptoms and prescribe herbs, or guide patients through meditations, acupressure, or other forms of at-home therapy.
As we considered how we could support practitioners in this effort, we realized that we had something in our pocket that fit perfectly into these virtual coaching sessions. It’s a guided form of therapy that customers can do safely at home. It can boost energy, soothe anxiety, ease tension, and improve the flow of Qi through the meridians. And, the best part is, it’s absolutely free.
It’s a 20-minute guided Qigong routine for meridian balance, led by Dr. Jake Fratkin. It’s our gift to you, and we hope you will gift it to your patients.

Qigong: An Ancient Chinese Healing Art
The Chinese have practiced Qigong for thousands of years to circulate Qi and help the body heal itself. We hope that you will give this routine a try for yourself. Then, recommend it to patients who might benefit from it!
According to the National Qigong Association, “Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one’s mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent.”
It could be compared to other forms of meditative, intentional movement like yoga and pilates.
The purpose of Qigong is to improve the flow of energy through the acupuncture channels. Additionally, it enhances one’s ability to feel the life force energy, or “Qi” moving through them. It warms tendons, muscles and ligaments and promotes healthy circulation through gentle movement.
Qigong aids in the body’s natural healing processes, increases spiritual reflection, promotes mental health, and encourages physical wellbeing. It is soothing and quieting to both mind and body, making it an ideal form of therapy for anxiety, stress, and overthink. As such, some practicers of Qigong use the practice to overcome or mitigate medical challenges.
Qigong for Immune Support
Preliminary studies have demonstrated that mindfulness and exercise can boost the immune system. Try an exercise routine that incorporates a variety of cardiovascular exercise, resistance training, and a mindfulness practice like Qigong, Tai Chi, or yoga. This may lead to enhanced results and better performance in every area.
As you counsel your patients on dietary and lifestyle changes they can implement to improve their immune function, strengthen their bodies and balance their energy, consider sending them this video, too. It’s a quick and easy addition to a stay-at-home routine that could benefit them greatly.
