What is Qigong?
Qigong is an ancient Chinese Health Practice that was developed by Martial Artists, Military men,Tibetan Buddhist Monks and Hermits, scholars and physicians. It integrates Physical movements, Breath Work, and Focused intention. The slow, gentle movements are easily learned and can be adapted for anyone to do, and can be practiced by all age groups! Some Qigong Forms are stationary, while others are more moving. Some practices increase Qi- the Vital Life Force within all Living beings, while others Circulate Qi within, or use Qi to Cleanse and Heal the body, while others focus on storing Qi for Longevity, and others to Emit Qi to Heal others! Many Practices include a connection to the Natural Environment and to Nature itself!
Qigong, from a truly Holistic view, is a complete system of Healthcare! Whether one is receiving Medical/Clinical Qigong Treatments, to doing Qigong Forms, Qigong can help many chronic, stubborn Health Challenges that Western Medicine finds difficult to treat. Using Medical/Clinical Qigong treatments to help the client who is either unaware of their Qi (giving them a direct experience of Qi in their bodies) to those who are to Ill to help themselves, Qi emissions, along with a Qigong Form, can profoundly influence the clients Health in a positive fashion!
Qigong Forms create an awareness of our Internal Health of Body, Mind, Emotions and Spirit, that is not a part of Western Health practices or Exercises. As Qigong uses the Meridian System of Acupuncture, it helps remove blockages that one may not even be aware of, helping the Internal Organs to function properly! Adding Mind intent, along with Breathing Techniques to Physical movements, the benefits of exercise increase
The gentle, rhythmic movements of a consistent Qigong Practice can:
· Reduce Stress
· Increase Vitality
· Enhance the Immune System
· Enhance Digestion
· Heal Chronic Ailments
· Sooth Joints, Muscles and Tendons
· Calm the Mind
· Create Harmony Within ourselves, both Physically and Emotionally
When the three Aspects of our Beings are Integrated- Mind, Body,and Spirit, it encourages a positive outlook on Life, which brings greater Harmony, Stability and Enjoyment!
Throughout history, when we became ill or hurt, our first instinct was to touch, rub or lay our hands on an area of the body to make it feel better. Certain societies developed this natural instinct into highly sophisticated methods of natural healing!
The Chinese hermits and shamans developed a system of energy healing that uses rivers and streams of energy known as the meridians; from this it became established as Acupressure and eventually Acupuncture.
The Japanese developed another method known as Reiki, that allows for the relief of long held patterns of disharmony in the whole of the individual.
Modern day masters continue to refine these systems and seemingly sew methods are being discovered or recovered, allowing us to add to the methods to help our clients to continue on their journey toward harmony within as well as without.
I am dedicated to helping individuals to restoring that balance! My goal is to help my client's through Energy System Balancing, Clearing and Restoring Energy Flow, as well as teaching simple things that the client's can do at home to help themselves toward the Best possible Healing Outcome for them as well as their Animal Friends!
By using the many energy medicine techniques that I have learned; I am helping many to return to a state of natural harmony, wellness and peace!
