Combining Medical Qigong Therapy with an in-depth awareness of physical and emotional patterns held in the body, sessions are deeply personal and help you to find your own inner guidance into alignment. Refocusing the 'qi' by deeply checking in, guiding awareness to the subtle and physical body with energetic and shamanic techniques, touch, sound and body tracking in a loving and safe environment to help you move through long held blocks and stagnations.
More on Medical Qigong:
Medical Qigong therapy is the eldest therapeutic modality of Chinese medicine. It addresses the root cause of symptoms or disease, and treats the client as a whole.
Coaching and prescriptions are given in the form of daily movement meditations designed to strengthen and align where needed and to empower the patient in their own healing process.
Like its better known counterparts, acupuncture, acupressure and herbal medicine, Medical Qigong is based in extensive scientific and intuitive knowledge of the 5 elements, channels, meridians and points. Rather than using needles, herbs, or massage, Medical Qigong relies on the ability to direct ‘Qi’, or life-force energy. The principles of treatment are the same as acupuncture, acupressure and herbology, only the technique varies. Medical Qigong involves working directly and subtly with a person's Qi in ways that are non-invasive, safe and more gentle than other modalities. It can have powerful results for mild to acute conditions.
Qigong (Chi Kung) refers to ancient Chinese exercises, visualizations and meditations used to cultivate the flow of energy within one's own body. For me, Qigong is a wake up, a clearing of grogginess in the cells, a renewal and rejuvenation of my awareness and reverence for all that is inside and out. Cultivating an inward ‘eye’, I see how we are able to harness our strength and come back into sync with our being’s true flow.
Working with the basic fundamentals of the 5 element Medical Qigong system, the Qigong class I teach gently wakes up the body, tunes us in to the organ systems, meridians and channels, balances yin and yang, and charges up the energy fields. As a compliment to Medical Qigong therapy, the Qigong the exercises provide you with knowledge of how to cleanse, tonify or regulate specifically when and where needed.
