In the last years of his life, the famous physician and Qigong master Ma Litang abandoned the use of needles and focused on his peculiar chuiliao (health regulating hammer technique) treatment. His daughter Ma Xuzhou, whom Giulia Boschi has collaborated for over 20 years with, brought this method to Europe. A complete three years successful course, centred on the use of chuiliao for eye problems, was offered to health professionals at the Health Unit n. 10 in Florence for six years (2006-2012). Giulia Boschi has been given the lineage to continue the teaching of the Malitang method.
Through a mix of theory, Qigong exercises and practice with the Malitang Hammer the delegates will learn
- Ma’s family method for locating points “in a run” to practice chuiliao and underlie a few point locations that are slightly different from the common standard, according to Ma’s family tradition.
- How to perform a complete “small circulation” protocol with the rubber hammer, including manual anqiao treatment of points on the head.
- The simplest form of Jianmu gong (Qigong to strengthen the eyes) and how to teach it to patients.
This is the first level of treatment. After months of practice the delegates would be able to attend subsequent sessions to deepen their knowledge and complexity of treatment.
