WEEKEND  COURSES

Sifu Joan will teach weekend courses in major towns around Ireland for 2018.

Some of the weekends will be themed weekends on Chronic illnesses. If you cannot attend a weekend you may see Sifu Joan for private consultations. She will teach you what she learned in Malaysia over six sessions and the fee is €500.00 (please apply for these sessions with heading ‘Private consultations’ to sifujoan@gmail.com

Chronic diseases are those long term conditions which from the Western medical perspective can be treated and controlled but not cured. From the Shaolin Chi Kung and Chinese medical perspective these diseases are caused by energy blockages and most can be cured completely. Western and Chinese medicine are just two different paradigms of looking at illness and pain.

Examples of conditions that result in chronic illness include: (there are so many more, this is just an overview)

Heart disease

Respiratory disease

Asthma

Cancer

Dementia

Mental health problems

Musculoskeletal diseases.

Interestingly, The Quarterly National Household Survey of 2007 found that the most commonly reported health problems (chronic illness) in Ireland are:

Hypertension

High Cholesterol

Back conditions

Asthma

Anxiety (including depression)

Arthritis

Bronchitis

Angina

Diabetes

Cancer

Weekends for some of these conditions will be held during 2018 and 2019. For some of these conditions the year long programme is ideal with constant supervision from Sifu Joan beginning in September 2018 in Dublin and Kerry.
