Des Lawton is a Shiatsu Practitioner, Qigong Practitioner and Qigong Instructor who has been teaching Taiji and Qigong since the late 1980’s. This course is the first in a series of Qigong for specific, chronic, ailments that he is producing. The first thing I want to point out is that the price does not reflect the quality of this course. The price has been deliberately kept  low (with Udemy discounts and Pro-Holistic discounts) so that Hypertension sufferers have easy, inexpensive, access to these exercises. The course and the exercises are superb.

To maximise effectiveness in treating Hypertension we will strengthen the focus on certain acupuncture points. Each exercise starts with the stimulation of those points. We continue to do this until we are familiar with each of them and can focus on each of them without the need for that stimulation.

Qigong does not produce quick fixes but, through time and practice, it has a cumulative effect on health and wellbeing. How long it takes is dependent on many factors, the biggest two being frequency and quality of practice.

If you follow Des’s guidelines in this course I feel sure that you will notice a difference……… but try to be patient with yourself and give the Qigong (and yourself) a chance.

“Des Lawton is clearly at the cutting edge of Energy work today, and his sensitivity, humour, and instructional abilities integrate beautifully. This has enabled him to teach at all levels, bringing oriental thoughts & concepts to occidental minds, making these concepts tangible, and demystifying them.”
“Des Lawton demonstrates teaching-integrity and respect for his students, and knows how to facilitate student understanding, awareness and true progress, encouraging the students’ desire to learn. I’ve taken other courses from people who may know how to go through the outer movements with good form themselves and have impressive “temple” credentials and an exotic nationality, but they lack the ability to impart knowledge which is the essential attribute of a teacher and also calls into question their own depth of understanding.”

By taking part in this course you agree to the terms and conditions. These can be found in the, preview enabled, Introduction lecture in Section 1 of the course.

Principal Instructor at San Bao
I have been practicing Qigong since 1985 and teaching, albeit starting at a very basic level, since 1989.  In 1996, after three and a half years of study with the Glasgow School of Shiatsu, I qualified as a Registered Shiatsu Practitioner.  My previous knowledge of Qigong really helped me with the Shiatsu and, equally, learning Traditional Chinese Medicine as part of the Shiatsu course served to increase my understanding of Qigong. In the late 1990s, it was my good fortune to have been, finally, accepted as an Inner Sanctum student by Master Joseph Bell ( a student and direct lineage descendant of Master Wang Jiu Mei).
