Qigong

QIGONG according to the BIYUN METHOD
Health Preservation Qigong according to the Biyun Method works both preventively and as healing, according to ancient Chinese principles about energy-flow. You work with physical exercises, that open up blockages in the energy fields, the meridians. But the core of the positive effect is in the mental work, in a conscious and positive focus. It is the concentration in the movements that emphasizes and empowers the energy work, and gives us tools and strength to alter health conditions.

Health Preservation Qigong is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM, and is a health system whose roots go back 5000 years in China, where the principles evolved as a mixture of philosophy and medicine.
The method is based on the same principles as acupuncture: that life energy runs in paths, meridians, through the body. By practicing Qigong blockages of the energy system are dissolved, only here you need no practitioner to work on you. If disturbances of the energy system occur there is a foundation for illnesses. According to TCM theory everyone is born with a certain amount of basic life energy. With Qigong training this energy is awakened and stimulated, and the body’s capacity of self-healing is improved.

Biyun, the Health Preservation Method, is put together by Grandmaster Fan Xiulan, Chinese doctor and professor of Medical Qigong. She is the the founder of, and for many years director of a recognized health institute near Beijing.
Fan Xiulan learned Qigong method from her grandmother as a child, but later got away from it, until many years later she fell seriously ill, according to the doctors incurably ill. Then she started training her grandmother’s method, and after only a few weeks her blood work showed improved values, and soon she was completely well. Miraculously, according to the doctors. She then decided to dedicate her life to help others help themselves with Qigong. She was trained to be Qigong Master, she developed her own school of Qigong, she had a professorship in Medical Qigong, and she founded her health center in Xiangshan near Beijing, where thousands have learned Qigong according to the Biyun Metoden.
Fan Xiulan now lives a great part of the year in Sweden, and in 2010 The Biyun Academy opened a health center in Stockholm, where classes, workshops, talks, treatments ect. are being offered.
