What is Te Yi Medical Qigong®?

Te Yi Medical Qigong® or Te Yi in short means Special Medicine in Chinese. As part of the Heavenly Essence Qigong system, Te Yi is a special Qigong practice distilled from the ancient Chinese life preservation and healing traditions. Te Yi does not diagnose or treat any diseases and is not a medical treatment, but uses the unique Qi Assessment and Qi Regulation techniques to promote healing and enhance the efficacy of other modalities. Te Yi specializes in utilizing the Human Innate Special Functions (HISFs) and “Yi Nian” or mind intent to help support the optimal Qi flow and enhance the body’s innate self healing abilities to heal itself.

Te Yi Medical Qigong® is performed either by a Qi Dragon trained Te Yi student practitioner for practice purpose or by a Te Yi Certified Practitioner as a professional service. It is done without any any drugs or physical needles and mostly without any physical contact or sometimes done with hands gently placed on certain area over clothes without any physical manipulation. It can also be done remotely as a distant healing. A Te Yi session varies in length of time and frequency as long as the desired effect is accomplished for the receiver, which is determined by the conditions addressed, the receiver’s sensitivity types, the practitioner’s energy level and other factors involved. For current student training and a general practice purpose, we usually suggest a Te Yi session to be 20-25min. All Te Yi receivers are generally recommended to learn and practice Qigong in order to enhance the healing effect and maintain health in the long run.

Te Yi practice includes Qigong or Qi healing, projecting External Qi healing, mind intent healing, Qigong Fasting, Group Qi Field healing, hands-on or healing touch, Yi needle or non-physical needle healing, Qigong and Taichi therapeutic exercises self healing, stress reduction and preventative self healing. Te Yi is known for being easily accessible, pain free and deeply relaxing as well as therapeutic in a most natural and non-invasive way.

The knowledge of Te Yi Medical Qigong®has been introduced to the west as a new healing modality by Dr. Liping Zhu, who is a disciple in the Heavenly Essence Qigong lineage and was directly authorized by the Grandmaster.

How can I get trained in Te Yi Medical Qigong®?

To learn the Qi Assessment and Qi Regulation methods of Te Yi Medical Qigong® you can choose to be trained as either a Qi Dragon Te Yi Medical Qigong® Student Practitioner or a Qi Dragon Te Yi Medical Qigong® Certified Practitioner by taking either Qigong Formal Study Program or Qigong Certificate Program. Please read about our Te Yi Medical Qigong Programs.

What to expect during a session of Te Yi Medical Qigong®?
Depending on your meridian sensitivity, you may or may not feel any physical sensations. However, the majority of people at one point during a Te Yi session may feel some unusual bodily sensations such as warmth, tingling, pulsing, vibration, electrical, itching, heavy, windy, cold… etc that are called Qi Gan or Qi Sensation. Some even experience seeing colors and hearing sounds. The practitioner may lay hands on you gently on a specific area without moving or not touch you at all for the entire time. Some receivers may feel a very deep sense of relaxation, release and comfort. Some receivers may feel emotional or certain pain sensations or temporary discomfort over the diseased or energy blocked areas while the Qi is moving through the blockage and may continue to experience the “purging” or “healing” effect in the next day or two or even longer. None of those sensations cause any harm to the body and are signs of energy moving through or releasing blockages or increasing.

Who can receive sessions of Te Yi Medical Qigong®?
Anyone is welcome if you think you can benefit from this type of healing whether you have diseases or not! We don’t offer Te Yi to people who have severe diseases such as cancer, severe heart disease, severe high blood pressure, psychosis, schizophrenia and contagious diseases. Please consult with your physician if you are not sure about the suitability of your health condition or have any concerns. Generally speaking, Te Yi Medical Qigong® can be used for relaxation, prevention, healing and balancing.
You don’t have to be our Qigong student either to receive a treatment. We do encourage all our receivers to learn about and practice Heavenly Essence Qigong if they wish to understand more about how Te Yi works and to develop self healing functions and abilities for maintaining their health for themselves.

What does Te Yi Medical Qigong®treat?
Te Yi doesn’t diagnose or treat any illnesses but can help support the healing of body. Through a practitioner’s Qi Assessment and Qi regulation techniques, a receiver’s innate potential self healing function can be stimulated and enhanced while a practitioner is in a relaxed Qigong practice state. According to many Te Yi practitioners’ experience and the published six volumes of 1000 Te Yi case studies from China, Te Yi healing could help with the healing of more than a hundred diseases such as pain, high/low blood pressure, eye diseases, diabetes, heart diseases, skin diseases, fibroid, cysts, tumors, stones, paralysis, stress, anxiety, depression, infertility and some difficult to treat diseases, etc. The results vary depending on a receiver’s sensitivity to Qi, a receiver’s cooperation, a practitioner’s energy level and special function abilities etc.

Healing Experiences as a receiver or a student practitioner of Te Yi Medical Qigong

“I arrived at the clinic and Valerie was to be my practitioner. I have a connection with her because she has seen me in the clinic and we were both at Tassajara together. When I came in I noticed Grandmaster Zhang’s photo on the wall – and I felt something like when I would go to a sacred place- that I was in the presence of something or someone greater than myself.

So Valerie started and she suggested I imagine a white light coming from the top of my head and pouring down my body. So I meditated on that, as if the light were a waterfall. First, the light was stuck at my heart area, and I started to cry. I thought of Grandmaster Zhang and my condition and about being released from it. I thought too about my father’s father at some point, how he was an invalid due to his exposure to chemical weapons or something during World War I. He had been a firefighter but became disabled as a youngish man and developed Parkinson’s disease. My father said he knew him mostly as an invalid and he died at 45 or 46 when my father was about 10. The autopsy showed he had cancer throughout his body.

Anyway, I was crying and thinking about him and the sadness of my father that he never showed us but must have felt deeply. I also yawned a lot. And then near the end of the treatment I felt this flooding of energy into my right side, both my arm and leg felt then just tingling.

When I was still lying there I was able to lift my right knee off the cushion a bit – which was not something I would think my right leg could do.”
—a M.S. patient

“As soon as I put my hands on this M.S. patient after Invoking Shifu (the rare time I ask Shifu to work through me since I feel I do not have the sufficient energy level to treat complicated diseases) I could feel a tremendous suffering that was coming from far far away and was beyond her body. This is when I started crying and realized she was crying too. I let her cried and released, told her it was not a problem and that it was actually a good thing because something larger than us was happening. I also told her that I got the sense that the ancestors were involved in this disease. I do not know how I knew this, but I was sure of it and my body was vibrating.

I really did not do much besides the Magic Palm Healing Method, Yi Needles on her head and knees and massaging her legs. All the work was done through the mind begging the Universe to release her karma, and clear the ancestor’s.

I also created an energy line going from her Ming Men down both legs firing up the nervous systems. I saw her legs move, I saw her walking in my mind’s eye.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to do the healing. I am very humbled by this experience.”

—Valerie B. Level 2 Certificate Program student tells her side of story as the Te Yi Medical Qigong student

“During the session,I saw a small flash of light in left, then right eye. multiple pinpoint burning sensation around neck and left ankle jerking down of right shoulder. I detected a strange burning smell.
I had warmth in my neck. Knees were cool. General feeling was cool except for lower back. I had transient burning sensation in my lower back.
After the session, my back is no longer hurting at all. Neck bones do not creak anymore when I turn my head.
Thank you.”
— a retired pilot with arthritic problems who received a Te Yi distant healing treatment from Phyllis W. our Level 3 Certificate Program student

A true story of self healing through Qigong practice by a Qi Dragon® student
May 26, 2014
“I was reaching out in a toaster oven when I ended up making contact with the heating elements. Both tips of middle and ring fingers of the right hands touched the hot device. By the time I felt the burn, both finger tips were quickly darkening and the skin started to bubble up.
The burning pain was quite intense. I right away covered my fingers with my left hand and start Magic Palm Healing Method while chanting the healing mantra. I did this for about 2 minutes but the burning sensation was not decreasing, then I thought about using Life Preserving Sword Finger Stance as it is designed to project cooling Qi that is usually used in case of inflamed heat conditions.
The burning sensation first increased in the initial several minutes into the practice, then dissipated after about 10 minutes, the pain decreased dramatically after 15 minutes. I did the Sword Finger practice for as long as 45 minutes after which time, there was just a little brown aureole left at both tips of fingers and all pain was gone.
The day after, all trace of burn had disappeared. There was instead a new thin thickness in the skin and the skin color was all normal.
I am amazed at the healing power of this Qigong practice and grateful that I can do healing on myself now!”

—48 years old female student

A report from September 6, 2014 Free Clinic Day:

“I recovered from a sciatica which left me with constant numbness,tingling, tightness, weakness, cramping from time to time on my left side. Everything subsides and reoccurs but never really goes away.I recently strained my left ankle and have tried many therapies. My calf and ankle was becoming tighter and was not subsiding with stretching. I received Liping’s email and decided to try Qi Gong therapy.

This is the first time I had Te Yi Medical Qigong from the therapist, Dianna. I left feeling very little strain and a week later still feel great. I sat in her chair she explained what she was going to do and towards the end she cupped my ankle and heel area. When she was done I still felt a warmth and when I stood up I noticed very, very little strain.

I am so thankful!”
—Margaret H.

Steve Brock’s Self Healing Experience with Te Yi:

“Heavenly Essence Qigong and Te Yi special medicine are like tools, the more we use them, the more effective they become, and gradually we become master craftsmen of our own lives. We can use these tools in normal times and in times of crisis, as I had the unfortunate but ultimately rewarding opportunity to experience.

A couple months ago I slipped while pruning a limb from a madrone tree and I sliced open my left index finger with a saw. The cut was deep. My first reaction was fear, panic, and remorse, but almost immediately my Qigong training kicked in. I started breathing deep into my Lower Dan Tian.

I decided to take the rest of the day off, and focus almost exclusively on healing. I rested my hands on my Lower Dan Tian, nourishing Qi, and I applied Magic Palm Healing Method to my wounded finger. I visualized the molecular structure of my cells changing, re-forming, and binding themselves to each other.

I accepted that the accident happened. I realized that the damage was done, but I knew that the healing could begin immediately. I recited the mantra “clear the inflammation, stop the pain, recover to normal” over and over again. When I took the bandage off the next day, the wound, that could have been stitched, had fused and the healing was well underway. Two days later I went to tabla class.”

–Steve Brock, Level 2 Qigong Certificate Program Graduate


Te Yi or Te Yi Medical Qigong is a special Qigong healing practice distilled from ancient Chinese life preservation systems and focuses on energy practice and healing. It doesn’t diagnose or treat any illnesses but rather helps support optimal Qi flow, and support the body’s ability to heal itself. It specializes in utilizing the Human Innate Special Functions ( HISF) and energy healing techniques to perform Qi Assessment and Qi Regulation techniques. A Te Yi session is performed by a Qi Dragon trained Heavenly Essence Qigong practitioner. It is not a medical treatment, but can promote and enhance the efficacy of other healing modalities. A receiver benefits from the energy work of a practitioner while he/she is in a Qigong practice state. Te Yi serves as a special medicine in that it has been known for its effect in stimulating a person’s innate healing potential that helps a body to maintain or recover to its balanced healthy state. Deeply rooted in the ancient Chinese healing traditions, Te Yi this unique healing system was founded by Grandmaster Zhang of Heavenly Essence Qigong system in the 80s in China and was brought to the west by Dr. Liping Zhu in the past 20 years.

There has been no known adverse effects for receiving Te Yi healing. Please direct all your medical conditions related questions to your physicians and verify your suitability for this type of energy healing. For some receivers, there maybe discomfort of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, pain related discomfort during or right after Te Yi treatments when the body starts to release toxins, purge and heal, which is usually called “Qi Chong Bing Zao ” or “Qi charging the disease area”. This phenomenon is more commonly understood as a “healing crisis” and considered a positive effect. The discomfort that is brought up will generally resolve itself within a day or two. If your discomforting symptoms are not related to this healing process, please consult with your doctor for care.
