Qigong - Wednesdays, 3:30-4:30pm. $10 per class. Qi Gong is one of five medicinal branches in Chinese Medicine. You will learn the skillful practice of gathering energy, circulating the breath, and moving the body with intention.
Shiatsu / Thai Massage - $1-2 Sliding Scale, 10 minute minimum (Coming late spring/early summer). Both styles of massage are rooted in ancient healing medicines and focus on opening meridian channels to unblock stagnant energy. The massage is performed on a mat with the patient wearing loose-fitted clothing. Using light to medium pressure and passive yoga stretches this practice induces deep relaxation.
Chinese medicine is a complete form of medicine that has existed for over 2,000 years. It was the primary form of healing in China until a little over a century ago.
Chinese medicine works by balancing your body to make it stronger. When your body and mind are strong and balanced, disease cannot take hold. When imbalance does occur, disease finds a foothold. Insomnia, digestive disturbances, chronic pain, heart arrhythmias, excessive sweating, weight gain or loss, and allergies are examples of early warning signs that a disease process is underway.
Chinese medicine practitioners rarely treat just your symptoms. Chinese medicine treats the root of disease.
