Acupuncturist & Tai Chi Chuan Instructor
Qigong (pronounced "chee gong") is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention. It promotes good health by facilitating the body’s internal healing mechanisms to relieve stress, develop flexibility, improve coordination and increase stamina. This 10-week course will compliment your existing health care program and provide you with more natural energy to enhance your treatment process.
