AOMA student interns practice Medical Qigong and Asian Bodywork as a part of their clinical education. Please contact the main campus clinic for appointment times.
Medical Qigong works with the “qi” of individuals without the use of needles. It is well suited for very sensitive people, children and people in poor health. It involves working subtly with a person’s qi or energy in ways that are non-invasive, similar to Reiki. Medical Qigong is well suited for the following disorders: stress, anxiety, depression, headache, insomnia, poor memory, poor concentration, hypertension, PMS, perimenopausal syndrome, asthma, and digestive issues.
Asian bodywork has been practiced in China for over 2,000 years and is now considered an important healing modality in Chinese medicine. In this needle-free, hands-on therapy, Asian bodywork practitioners make recommendations for energetic exercises by rolling, tapping, and pressure to increase circulation and relieve pain throughout the body. Asian bodywork is used to effectively treat a wide range of musculo-skeletal conditions, including orthopedic injuries and chronic pain. It is also used successfully in stroke rehabilitation.
Clinic Theater treatments are available one to three days a week, depending on the term, at the South AOMA campus only. A licensed acupuncturist performs the entire treatment with 10-15 students watching and listening. Clinical Theater treatments and herbs are free to the patient. Patients are limited to two Clinic Theater appointments per term per class.
Cancellation notice is requested 24 hours before your appointment. Patients who cancel without 24 hours notice will be assessed a $30 cancellation fee. Appointments are considered forfeited 20 minutes after the scheduled time.
