Spring Forest Qigong Certification

Through Energy Healing International


Notice: Spring Forest Qigong is not currently accepting any new applications for any levels of Certification for the year 2024




Two Main Certification Tracks

- Qigong Teacher and Qigong Healer


There are so many different trees in the forest. Everyone is unique and we all have different passion and life purpose than others. Some are more interested in teaching and sharing the message while others are more comfortable in one-on-one healing and coaching others. Our program is designed to fit your personal passion and life purpose. This is why Spring Forest Qigong’s certification program was designed with two tracks: Teaching Professional and Healing Professional.





A Self-Directed Program


It is a program designed for busy people like you. While you juggle your regular profession, family, social life, self-care, and all other things in life, it is difficult to go to school on a regular basis to learn a new skill that will bring you not only more income, also brings you satisfying self-achievement.


Qigong professional certification by Energy Healing International offers flexible learning schedule, so you can learn, practice, and improve your skills while you work toward your well-deserved certification. Because it is a flexible schedule, you can complete the course work at your own pace and take the certification training when you are ready. It works the same way for your finances. The classes and certifications are reasonably priced, and it is basically a pay as you go program where you pay for the classes as you take them. No paying up front for the full program, so you don’t need to worry about burdening your finances. Plus, it is a great return on investment for yourself.





A Genuine Certification from a State Licensed School


Energy Healing International is a Minnesota registered licensed private school. The school has been training Qigong professionals since 2017. Our graduates are backed by a highly ethical and credited professional certification academic system. Unlike some certifications over the internet, your professional certification is recognized by not only Qigong community worldwide, but also recognized by organizations (medical community, government agencies, or private corporations, etc.) throughout the US.

General Certification FAQS:


Do I have to take the prerequisite classes in any certain sequence? 

No, you do not have to take the classes in any certain order, however, the classes do build upon each other and the material will make more sense if you follow the class sequence. 


I have been studying and practicing the self-learning materials and have not taken any live classes, do I qualify for the certification training? 

You must attend the LIVE classes with a qualified teacher as outlined in the prerequisite materials for each of the programs to be a candidate for the certification. 


What is the cost of your certification programs compared to other energy healing certification programs such as Reiki or Healing Touch®? 

Spring Forest Qigong and Energy Healing International has taken great care in determining tuition fees for our certification programs to be comparable, and many times lower in cost, than other programs in this industry. You can contact  for more information on cost comparisons. 


How long will it take me to be certified? 

The length of time to become a certified professional with Spring Forest Qigong varies with each program and person. The more advanced the program, the more time it will take. A student could become a Certified Practice Group Leader after attending 3 days of classroom training. The Certified Trainer path typically could take 6 months to complete the prerequisites. The Certified Healer path typically could take 6 – 12 months to complete the prerequisites, and the Certified Instructor requires extensive training that could take 2 years to fulfill the prerequisites.

Please note, our certification programs are self-directed.  The length of time to complete any one of these certifications, is dependent on the time and commitment of each individual student.


I took the prerequisite live training classes many years ago; do they still count? 

Yes, if you can provide documentation to verify your attendance at the required classes, they will count towards the prerequisite requirements. 


Can I use the Certified Professional badge on my business card? 

Yes, when you successfully pass the requirements for that level of certification, you may use the appropriate professional badge on any of your marketing materials. 


Will my information be posted on your certified professional web page? What if I do not want my information posted? 

You are not required to post any information on the Spring Forest Qigong Certified Professionals web page if you choose not to. However, if you decide to not be listed as a Spring Forest Qigong Certified Professional, you will not be able to take advantage of having your classes listed on the Spring Forest Qigong web site. 


I am interested in healing animals: do you have a certification for that?
