- components of An-Mo Gong: Self-Healing Massage and its major benefits
- external qi healing
- components of a complete qigong workout

- the qigong lifestyle
I love the wide variety of classes the Institute covers. I’ve taken a couple of courses through this site and couldn’t be happier. It’s an added bonus to have the ability to go at your own pace and not have to take the time off to complete the courses. There are so many courses I look forward to taking.

I enjoyed this course because it made the subject matter easily understandable for a "western" practitioner. Realistically, I don't know that I would incorporate this into my practice; however, I will experiment with it. I took it more for personal use, which, of course, will improve my health in all areas of my life.

Once I got started reading the booking, I didn't want to put it down. Forgot that I was actually taking a course for testing, then went back and started all over for course study. Very pleased with it and I'm looking forward to adding Qigong to my lifestyle.

This was one of the best books I have read in a long time. The information was excellent and it explained work I have done for years. I am very glad to be able to add the practical application of the Standing Meditation technique to build energy before doing healing work. Thank you!

I loved this book- The Way of QiGong: The Art and Science of Chinese Energy Healing. The author was very clear and thorough in his presentation. There was a good balance of the ancient mystic beauty of QiGong as well as modern day scientific validations. It is intelligent while easy to understand. It validated much of what I already knew and taught me so much that I didn’t know previously. This is a book that I will frequently reference, and I look forward to reading it again.
- Stacy Sands, LMT

Great course. I loved the choice of textbook. I will refer to it again and again.
- Jennifer Voorhies, LMT, NCTMB
This book will help me tremendously as a Massage Therapist. This book has reminded me how important the breath is, and how we take the breath for granted. This will help with emotional, spiritual and physical healing for me as well as my clients. I am so thankful I found this course online.

Great book. Great course. Challenging but fair test. Quality course.

- Linda Parks-Gobets, CMT
Ken Cohen's textbook is EXCELLENT! I have practiced Qi Gong exercises with Ken Cohen's QiGong dvds sporadically since 2003. The CEU impetus and this course proved to be invaluable as I have finally read his superbly detailed text cover-to-cover. My daily qi gong practice has been strengthened as well as deepened, and I feel that this entire experience will enhance my overall work with patients very favorably.
- Susan Sanderson, LMT
Engaging. The book rather opens the gate for appreciation and interest in moving forward with Qigong training. I am grateful to the author for sharing his expertise and love of this Healing Art. I will continue to enjoy referencing this book for personal use and in my massage therapy practice.
- Ann Schachinger, LMT, NCTMB
I am a therapist that firmly believes in the transfer of energy between living entities, this course helps to pin-point exactly how to build, release, and exchange vital life energy. I have always said that the Chinese knew thousands of years ago how to diagnose and treat dis-ease of the body...the information was never lost, just forgotten. This book is meant to help us remember. I am sure to read this book many more times throughout my life. Thank You!
- Alesha Bingham, L.M.T. Reno, NV
