An exploration of Qigong and Cancer rehabilitation

08 Nov 2022

The Chinese Medicine Centre, an international collaboration between Western Sydney University (WSU) and Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BUCM), will be hosting six live web-based workshops throughout 2022 -

This informative workshop explores the role of Guolin Qigong (GLQG) for cancer rehabilitation, a mind-body practice like Tai Chi. GLQG is a special form of Qigong used by people living with cancer. GLQG was developed by an advanced cancer survivor in the 1950s and today remains the only Qigong mind-body exercise recommended by all cancer care associations in China to support patients in cancer care. The workshop shares GLQG experiences from China and abroad, where it is often used by people to support quality of life and integrated into daily routines as an ongoing care intervention, and even continuing after the cessation of conventional cancer treatments. Proponents report a reduced risk of further cancer, therapeutic management of cancer symptoms and reduction in the frequency and intensity of cancer treatment related side effects, while it may reduce the risk of cancer recurrence and mortality after treatment. This is a showcase of GLQG used in a public hospital in Paris.
