What is Qi Gong?

Qi Gong, pronounced "chee gong", is rapidly increasing in popularity. As part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), it works on the body to bring balance and health, both physically, mentally and emotionally. There are many styles of Qi Gong beginning with simple abdominal breathing and progressing to complex sets of slow, gentle movements. Qi Gong is accessible to people of all ages and abilities. Different styles of it can be done sitting, standing, or lying down and many health benefits can be achieved with just a few minutes of practice every day. The principles under which Qi Gong operates are simple yet profound. Bioelectric energy flows through our bodies constantly. In Chinese this energy is called Qi, the Indian tradition calls it Prana and in Japanese it is called Ki. All these words refer to the same subtle and pervasive spark of life that resides in each and every one of us and in the world around us. The goal of an individual studying Qi Gong is to learn to sense this energy, develop it, and control it. Like learning to play chess, only a few moments are required to learn the basic principles and yet it takes a lifetime to master. This subtle energy or Qi circulates through the entire human body through energy channels, called meridians. When there are blockages in the meridians, many physiological and emotional problems may arise.

What is Qi Gong Therapy?

Qi Gong Therapy is treatment designed to remove the blockages in the body, balance and circulate energy. This work is very gentle yet powerful since all healing happens on an energy level first and the reinforced with touch and recommendations to prolong the treatment.

REVIEWS
"Have you ever felt frustrated, anxious or just stuck?  Well that's how I was feeling on the day I meant Michelle.   I feel I was blessed by being in the right place at the right time to have a Qigong Healing session with Michelle. I must tell you I had no idea what it was but I was open to it.
 
Michelle explained, that she starts with a Qigong Assessment..she did a good job explaining what that was. I seemed to relax very quickly.  I felt warmth and energy moving throughout by body.  It felt like she was working several area at one time....it was truly amazing.
 
At the end of the session, Michelle reviewed her assessment.  The cool thing about the information she shares, she gives you the ability to help yourself.   She taught me two basic movements and showed me a pressure point release that I could do.  She explained how each would help and why she was recommending each.  Folks trust me the movements and/or preasure point release take only seconds to do and they can be done anywhere. Yes anywhere.
 
I recommended Michelle and Qigong Healing to anyone who wants to learn how to clear blockages and keep positive energy flowing."
