Therapeutic Intention of External Qigong Practitioners: A Qualitative Analysis and Implications for Practice

Therapeutic Intention of External Qigong Practitioners: A Qualitative Analysis and Implications for Practice

Ratings: (0)|Views: 114|Likes:
This article explores the therapeutic intention (TI) of practitioners of external qigong (EQG) from the perspective of health psychology, holistic medicine, and humanistic values. The author proposes that TI is a resource that may improve the lives of patients and other living systems, such as bacteria, when practitioners develop it through self-reflective practice.
On the conceptual level, the author suggests that TI is at the center of EQG practitioners’ personal and professional attitudes, behaviors, thoughts, feelings, self-agency, self-realization, self-actualization, and humanistic values. TI is embedded in the nature of EQG practice.
The author concludes by identifying the theoretical insights that a narrative review of the literature can provide and qualitatively synthesizing this body of knowledge about EQG practitioners’ TI, grounded in Eastern and Western paradigms.
