Practicing true Qigong, learned from our online Qigong for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome course, can have a big impact on people who are suffering with this ailment. As part of my Shiatsu practice I usually teach/prescribe appropriate Qigong for CFS to patients who are suffering from this ailment. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also referred to as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis [ME] or Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease [SEID]) is extremely debilitating and care has to be taken during treatment so that energy is not drained any further. Qigong, when practiced properly, increases energy, vitality and stamina.

The feedback that I have received about the efficacy of these Qigong has led me to create an online course for people who are suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Not everyone has access to a Shiatsu practitioner but most people have access to the internet and this course should be of real benefit to them.

Recent reviews

  • “Excellent course. Well suited for someone with CFS. With the seated instructions I feel I can do the movements, it does not feel above my ability. I really enjoyed the way Des teaches – calm, clear and encouraging. Highly recommended.” D.A.
  • “The course is excellently communicated and the instructor obviously has a wide breadth of experience and a passion to share it. Useful to anyone who wishes to feel the potential benefits of practicing Qigong daily, it is not overly demanding but IS powerful. You DO NOT need to be suffering CFS to take benefit from this information. A small enhancement could be the inclusion of a pdf for each stage, just showing a still photograph of each transition point. This would negate the need to re-watch the full length video and would serve as a quick reminder for those who just want to jog their memory and get on and practice. Overall though, I am addicted to the presenters passion for the subject, and I am feeling the benefits of the practice.” S.H.
  • “It works. Love his courses. Wonderful human being.” A.K.
  • “This was a wonderful course. I can already feel the difference and I can see that I’ll be going back to this course repeatedly thank you for this pleasant and practical course.” C.K.
  • “This is my first qigong course. I hesitated to sign up because I didn’t know whether the several exercises would be accompanied by enough basic information. This course exceeded my expectations with providing a solid foundation and much to think about with practice. (Previously, I watched several internet videos, but never gained a comprehension of what was involved or felt a difference from daily practice.) The combination of fundamentals, careful instruction and PDF leaves nothing out. The instructor is calm, caring and gives hope for improving stamina, focus and the issues of CFS.” – D.K.
  • “I’m not affected by CFS but bought this course and practice these exercises because I find them really powerful. Mr Lawton’s courses are hands down the best I’ve been able to find anywhere.” – Sebastian
  • Very well detailed, easy to follow and fascinating.” – R.M.
  • ” Clear and detailed.” – K.L.

“Qigong does not produce quick fixes but, through time and practice, it has a cumulative effect on health and well being. 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.”

In this course, each Qigong exercise will be broken down into three lessons: The instructions, including movement, breathing and focus in the standing position. The instructions, including movement, breathing and focus in the seated position. Finally, a follow me video that can be used whether you are standing or sitting.

These three exercises have been chosen as examples of the Qigong for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that I prescribe. However, they are not the only exercises that I use for this condition as treatment is tailored to suit the needs of the individual. That said, they are among the commonest ones that I use.

Qigong for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – the Benefits

  • The first exercise works with the Stomach and Spleen meridians. When the energy in these meridians is low your entire physical energy is also low. The benefits of bringing Stomach and Spleen back into harmony are: Better flexibility in the muscles, better muscle tone, increased physical energy and increased ability to exercise (increased stamina).
  • The second exercise is a Lung meridian exercise that also works on the Large Intestine meridian. Enhancing Lung Qi increases energy levels and reduces fatigue in the upper body. It increases vitality, reduces melancholy and low mood. Enhancing Large Intestine Qi reduces fatigue in the lower body and increases determination, it also allows you to let go of negative thoughts and patterns.
  • The third exercise is a Five Elements exercise that brings balance to the entire energy system and then goes on to maintain that balance. The first two exercises will lift your energy levels and this one is effective at maintaining them.

  1. Hello Des,

    We emailed a while ago when I started your Qigong for Fibromyalgia course on Udemy. I hope you are well.

    I am enjoying the course and finding it very well produced. I would like to ask a question about what is causing me some problems in my practice. I know you can’t give a diagnosis or suggest treatment via e-mail but wondered if you had come across the following situation before in your work and what could be a possible cause, for example holding too much tension in the body. Whenever I practice the movements, I develop a spike in pain particularly in my upper back around and between the shoulder blades. My whole back also becomes very stiff making it difficult to have a meaningful practice session. I tried returning to a Tai Chi in 2018 but had to give up after 7 months as my body broke down and this was part of the problem. It seems to be a problem I cannot seem to ease and feel like I am going around in circles. Any advice you can give would be appreciated as at the moment I cannot achieve any consistency in my practice or is it something I just need to work through (within my limits).

    Thank-you for your help,

    Best wishes,


    Hello Richard,

    It sounds as though your Qi is stuck at Big Bone (the first thoracic vertebra) and the Kua (gates) known as the Centre of the shoulder blade gates. There is a Qigong exercise that you can use to clear these blockages and I have recorded a short video of how this Qigong is performed.

    In Wuji stance: –
    On inhalation, raise the arms to aproximately upper chest height (You need to adjust the height to focus on exactly where the Qi is stuck – where you are getting the pain) and pull the elbows back by drawing the shoulder blades together. Focus on the point/area of discomfort.
    On exhalation, lower the hands to the starting position while guiding the excessive Qi away and down through Kidney 1.
