burn-out-syndrome is coming more and more

Society is always thinking higher, faster, further nowadays and produces overload for many individuals. And they get the “burn-out-syndrome”.

So there is an increasing need to find solutions in burn-out treatment.

Therapy with QiGong

In the treatment of Burn-out QiGong plays an important role_

QiGong has a good effect on burn-out-patients. We examined 106 physio therapists. The exercise of “White-Ball-QiGong” had a deep impact on emotional exhaustion and depersonalisation of burn-out (psychovegetative exhaustion syndrome). This study was made at the university of Porto/Portugal in the setting of the Master of Chinese Medicine which you can also perform in Heidelberg. The curriculum teaches burn-out in the 3rd semester during the block “practical psychosomatics”.
