    It is becoming more of a well-known fact that the mind, body and spirit are not separate. By bringing greater awareness combined with the power of intention to the body we create the possibility for deep healing to occur. Quantum physicists are scientifically demonstrating that everything is made up of energy and that with our minds we have the power to influence it.

    In this intensive, you will learn both Qigong Exercises to teach your students and Medical Qigong Techniques to support the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Our students have both healed their own conditions and exponentially increased their patients’ healing results using Qigong.

    Alberto Ferreira is an accomplished acupuncturist and physiotherapist from Brazil. After several years of practice in his own country, he decided to go to China to pursue higher education in the practice of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. He studied in many different hospitals and cities in China including Beijing, Tianjin, and Kunming.

    In 2011 he travelled to Mumbai, India to work in poverty stricken areas delivering acupuncture relief with Barefoot Acupuncturists. After some time in India, he decided to seek more knowledge in the area of neurology, an old passion and a source of great frustration in clinic. So, he then went to Tianjin, China to learn the “Xing Nao Kai Qiao" (Waking the Brain and Opening the Orifices) technique. There he undertook his four-year long Master’s Degree program, and made the First Teaching Hospital of the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Tianjin his second home. He studied directly with the preeminent Chinese doctors Wang Ju Yi, Wang Zhao Yang, and Shi Xue Ming, the creator of the technique known as “Xing Nao Kai Qiao” (Waking the Brain and Opening the Orifices).

    He returned to Brazil after concluding his Master’s Degree in 2016, he is now based on Belo Horizonte, Brazil where he teaches acupuncture seminars as they relate to stroke patient recovery and runs his private practice. He has given numerous seminars on the “Xing Nao Kai Qiao" technique in Brazil, Portugal, and even back in Mumbai, India, He looks forward to opportunities where he can share his knowledge and bring acupuncture relief to patients, particularly stroke victims, worldwide.

    Here are some amazing videos of Alberto's work:
