PRIVATE HEALING SESSIONS
PROMOTE HEALING FROM WITHIN
Medical Qi Gong therapy facilitates the release of suppressed energy and emotions that have become toxic to the body's tissues, leading to imbalance, pain, and disease. It is commonly used to promote general wellness, as well as rebalance a host of complaints including (but certainly not limited to) chronic pain, physical injury, gynecological conditions, neurological disorders, depression, skin disorders, respiratory conditions, chronic fatigue, and much more.
Qi Gong therapy is the cultivation of Qi (life-force energy) within the body through movement exercises and passive energy work. Qi Gong is one of the four main branches of Chinese medicine, and has been used successfully in hospitals throughout China for hundreds of years.This healing modality is the energetic foundation upon which the other branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine are based. Like nerves, bones, and blood vessels, the body also contains a series of energetic pathways called “meridians”. Qi, or “life force energy” flows freely through these meridians much like blood flows through our vessels. Disruptions in this smooth flow of Qi occur throughout our lifetime as a result of poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, improper exercise, emotional and physical trauma, and environmental toxins. Medical Qi Gong sessions correct these imbalances and blockages that lead to pain and/or illness.
This work stimulates the body's healing potential and helps strengthen and regulate the internal organs, the nervous system and the immune system. Sessions consist of specific techniques that use the knowledge of the our meridians to purge, tonify (strengthen), and balance the body's energy flow.
In this private healing session, the client relaxes fully dressed on a massage table. The practitioner encourages movement of Qi through the patient’s body for 30-60 minutes. Exercises and/or meditations may then be recommended based on each individual's specific needs. While clients usually experience Qi movement after one session, multiple sessions may be required to work toward specific goals.
