A complete system for healing and preventing disease in the internal organs
Five Element Qi Gong harmonizes the Five Elements and Five Organs: Lung-Metal, Kidney-Water, Liver-Wood, Heart-Fire and Spleen-Earth. Additional exercises harmonize the Triple Heater (San Jiao), which in turn connects all the other organs and harmonizes the entire body.
In this online class we detail the correct method of performing Five Element Qi Gong, and clearly explain exactly how and why these exercises work.
Five Element Qi Gong is a simple and elegant set of exercises that activates and harmonizes the internal organs, while clearing blockages in the meridians that are often the underlying cause of fatigue or poor health. Five Element Qi Gong is easy to learn and enjoyable to perform, making it easy to integrate into your daily life. The simple movements have many hidden depths that reveal themselves over time through practice.
Simply follow the clear and concise instructions in the manual and videos and in 100 days you will be on the road to mastery.

Instructors Tom Bisio and Valerie Ghent make these seemingly esoteric practices approachable and easy to learn by showing you the “secrets” that allow you to get the desired results in just 15 minutes a day! Tom and Valerie impart valuable tips, imagery and insights from their own practice of Five Element Qi Gong, providing you with a clear and comprehensive approach to learning and mastering these exercises.
Five Element Qi Gong is a powerful method for transforming the body, mind and spirit. The five core exercises of this Qi Gong system cultivate the individual Qi Dynamic associated with the five key internal organs – Lungs, Kidneys, Liver, Heart and Spleen. This in turns activates the meridians, boosts energy and improves organ function.
The four additional exercises improve communication between the organs and their associated meridians, creating harmony, balance and calm. The gentle movements promote circulation and relax the musculature, while strengthening the body’s internal system.
We offer detailed, top-notch instruction that is clear, concise and thorough. Every detail of each exercise is explained clearly, without mysticism or secrecy. IAI Founder & head instructor Tom Bisio has taught Chinese internal arts and Qi Gong since 1986, and IAI senior instructor Valerie Ghent has practiced Qi Gong and Chinese martial arts for over two decades. In all our Qi Gong programs, Tom & Valerie weave together decades of training and teaching Chinese internal arts/qi gong, their extensive experience and research in Chinese internal martial arts (including 16 trips to China), plus Tom’s deep knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine.
Throughout the program, Tom & Valerie detail exactly how and why each exercise works, and impart valuable tips, imagery and detailed explanations of the internal connections. These insights, distilled after decades of study and practice, ensure correct performance of each exercise, allowing you to gain the maximum benefit from your practice.
While there are some advantages to learning in a classroom setting, there are also disadvantages. For example, once the class is over, you don’t have the teacher there to help you in your daily practice. Our experience is that in a classroom setting, students often have difficulty remembering corrections they receive. In an online program you can go over the detailed instruction and corrections again and again via the pdf and videos. A common complaint from students in a classroom setting is that the class moves too slowly or too quickly, or not enough time is spent on certain exercises which are particularly difficult. So another advantage of our online learning program is you can learn at your own speed.
Secondly, in a classroom setting, one tends to teach in a linear fashion. In our experience, these Nei Gong exercises are only truly mastered and understood through a circular learning method, involving constant recursion. This circular learning method is much easier to actualize in an online learning class.
Five Element Qi Gong is designed for practitioners of all levels. Tom and Valerie have taught these same exercises to people at all levels of ability: beginning students, advanced practitioners of Nei Gong and martial arts, and to patients as rehabilitative exercise in clinical settings. Five Element Qi Gong exercises are explained clearly and in such detail that you will not be disappointed, whether you are a beginning student or an experienced practitioner. Understanding the purpose of each exercise, and learning the critical details of correct performance, make all the difference in receiving the full benefits of the Five Element Qi Gong exercises.

Starting January 1, 2015, the European Union (EU) made a major change to its VAT regulations, that now requires businesses to pay VAT according to the locations of consumers. This law was meant mainly for large companies that have been avoiding higher taxes by establishing presences in places with lower VAT. Unfortunately, the regulation change also put a burden on independent creators who sell digital products to customers in Europe.
We’re unhappy with this new law as it puts a large burden on us, and you, the customer, end up paying more. However, we are forced to comply with the new law. We use Gumroad as the payment portal because they are reliable and trusted, and in addition they now collect the VAT automatically. We do not personally collect or receive the VAT. The VAT is collected by Gumroad and distributed to the proper authorities in each country by Gumroad.
If you are also unhappy with the new VAT law, we suggest you contact the appropriate local representative in your country.
The videos will be accessible indefinitely. We are committed to maintaining your ability to gain access to them.
It is not possible to answer everyone’s questions about training and many questions are impossible to answer through words alone. We encourage you to practice the material as many questions can only be answered through practice. We do offer workshops in Five Element Qi Gong periodically in New York City and Europe, so if you feel the need to fine-tune your practice, it might be useful to attend a workshop in person.
In general, young people do not need health maintenance exercises beyond their normal activities of running, walking, hiking, climbing and sports or martial arts. There is the exceptional young person who might benefit from these exercises, however, they should be recommended to that person by an experienced teacher or a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine.
