What is Qi Gong?
Qi Gong is part of an ancient Chinese exercise and healing system. "Qi" roughly translates to vital energy, information, breath or spirit. "Gong" means work, cultivation or mastery. Qi Gong is therefore sometimes translated as "energy work", "vital energy cultivation" or "mastery of your energy."
When you practice the slow, mindful physical movements of Qi Gong you're training to have more resiliency, balance, flexibility, focus and awareness by bringing qi into the muscles, bones and tendons through specifically designed routines. Qi Gong is also a highly effective way to lessen the effects of aging and manage your stress.
Benefits of Qi Gong
Research reported through the National Institute of Health has concluded Qi Gong provides consistent and significant health benefits related to:
- bone density
- cardiopulmonary effects
- physical function
- falls and related risk factors
- psychological symptoms
- immune function

YOU can influence your genes
Genetically speaking, we used to think information flowed in only one direction - from our DNA to our genes. And since our DNA doesn't change, we were stuck with what we inherited.
Through epigenetics (the study of what influences the flow of information between your DNA and your genes), we now know our genes can be activated and deactivated not only by our DNA, but also by signals directly from our environment. This means our DNA is NOT our destiny! We can turn ON the genes of health and longevity and turn OFF the genes of cell decay and death!
Many things influence how genes are expressed or suppressed:

The wellness services I provide fall under the "alternative medicine" category on the above chart. And while it's only 1 of the 12 ways to positively influence your genes, it's a safe, easy, and cost effective approach.
So relax with a biodynamic craniosacral session, have your muscles tuned up, or balance your energy with reiki. And know you're doing your body good!
