individuals with a medical condition, pregnant females or teenagers.
Individuals with known medical conditions such as heart conditions, physical ailments, previous
operations, cardiovascular complaints, lung disease, joint complaints, pregnancy problems or

might cause them to injure themselves, then they should stop immediately.

2. Even though all MinQi exercises are designed with the highest care for medical safety,
Participants should understand that when participating in any exercise or exercise program,
there is the possibility of physical injury. If the Participants engage in this exercise or exercise
program, they agree that they do so at their own risk, that they are voluntarily participating in

participation to the MinQi Program (weekly sessions and MinQi Videos) does not replace the
visit to a physician or other healing facilities, medication or psychotherapeutic facilities.
Participants should never disregard professional medical advice, or delay in seeking it,
because of something they have heard during a MinQi session or read on the Service Provider website or documentation. Participants should never rely on information provided by a MinQi
Trainer or in MinQi Videos in place of seeking professional medical advice.
