Dragon and Tiger Qigong – in the press and in Chicago! Dragon and Tiger Qigong is one of the Qigong sets I teach at Enso Tai Chi. D&T provides a great foundation for a beginning Qigong practice and offers plenty of depth and subtlety for the experienced practitioner. Plus, and for many most importantly, D&T is a powerful healing and health promoting practice.
Bruce Frantzis brought Dragon and Tiger Qigong to the US from China. Here is what Bruce says about D&T:
“While studying for 10 years in China and as a Chinese qigong tui na practitioner, I saw hundreds of different qigong sets. However, none had the simplicity and effectiveness of Dragon and Tiger Medical Qigong.
“While I was in China I looked for a qigong set that would have three qualities:
- Clear out energy blockages and energetically cleanse the entire body.
- Be easy enough to be practiced and learned by virtually anyone, regardless of their age or current state of health.
- Contain as few movements as possible but have at least 80% of the benefits of longer qigong sets
“Dragon and Tiger Medical Qigong was the answer!
“It is my personal opinion that Dragon and Tiger Qigong is one of the most beneficial qigong sets ever developed in China. It is fun to practice and many people begin to FEEL energy or chi moving in their body.”

The article also include a link to a short video with Energy Arts Senior Instructor Bill Ryan demonstrating a short set of D&T. Looks like it was shot on Maui. Nice spot for Qigong! In preparing for instructor certification, I trained with Bill at his studio in Northhampton and online. He is an extremely talented teacher, a very high level practitioner, and a great ambassador for D&T. Here’s the video:
