Learn Qi Gong


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

The Top 3 Things to know about Energy Healing


1.  You don't have to be spiritual.

2.  There's thousands of years of research.


3.  Everyone can do it.


There is absolutely no need to be spiritual, or to believe in anything specific, to benefit from energy healing.  The very nature of health is a self-correcting mechanism to restore balance, known as homeostasis.  Energy healing taps into this mechanism and enhances your body's ability to heal itself.

References to energy healing are found throughout recorded history.  Many cultures have complex, well defined healing systems.  Here are just 2 examples - there are many, many more.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been successfully used for over 2,000 years.  It's based on the idea of balance (yin/yang) and that our life force energy (chi) is circulated throughout the body by meridians - pathways than run from head to toe.  

Ancient Indian texts refer to chakras - energy centres along the spine that are linked to glands and organs.  These chakras balance and distribute life force energy (prana). 

Each and every one of us can do energy healing.  

I believe it's the fundamental nature of being human. 

Just like everything else humans can do, some do it better than others.  But with the right training, intention and practice everyone can help others heal.   Even if you're not inclined to learn the skills yourself, a good practitioner will show you simple techniques you can do at home to maintain your own energy balance.

DIY Emotional Freedom - It's Free!

Want to erase your negative thoughts and emotions? Want to rid yourself of pain or discomfort? Want to do it all from the comfort of your home?  All for free?


It's called Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).   It's simple, fast and easy and you can literally erase decades worth of negative emotion and pain.

Gary Craig has gifted EFT to the world - FREE - no strings attached. 

While Gary has recently evolved EFT into what he calls "Optimal EFT", the original "Gold Standard" EFT continues to help people all over the world.  You can learn everything you need to know to start tapping your way to emotional freedom here on his website.  For free.

EFT involves tapping on specific points on your body.  These points fall on meridians - the same lines of energy used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (e.g. acupuncture) and Touch for Health.   Tapping these points releases the energy disruptions caused by negative thoughts and memories.  Releasing the energy disruptions releases the thoughts and memories.  It's that simple.  It's that easy.  It's free.

It may seem odd that I'm promoting a website teaching people how to heal themselves for free.  After all, I offer healing sessions that are not free.    

My goal is to help as many people as possible to feel their best.  

I understand some people can't afford to pay for healing sessions. 
I understand some people don't want to pay for healing sessions.  

This shouldn't stop them from healing.   
Everyone deserves the chance to heal.

So why not try EFT? 

Did I mention, it's FREE!

Do-it-Yourself Energy Healing

There are many different ways the body's energy field can be used for healing - Reiki, Shamballa and Sound Therapy are just the tip of the iceberg.  Most energy healing systems require that you to seek a trained practitioner to assist you with your healing.  But what if you want to do it yourself?

Muscle testing is an easy way to use your own energy field to answer questions like "Is this supplement good for me?" or "Is this food good for my body right now?" Knowing the answers to these questions may not provide immediate relief from your symptoms, but if you listen to your body and ingest only what it can handle, over time, you will feel positive results.  Don't worry - this doesn't mean you can never eat junk food again.  What it does mean though, is you may have to avoid eating it at times when you're body just isn't up to the challenge - like when you're tired or stressed.

The basic principle here is that our personal energy field is affected by what it  interacts with.   If it interacts with something harmonious it strengthens, but weakens when it interacts with something negative. 

This technique is so easy.  Watch the video below and 6 minutes from now you'll be able to communicate with your energy field!

Considering Reiki? Here's what you should know.

Before you're ready to pick up the phone and schedule your first appointment, you probably have some questions you'd like answered.  Here are there top 5 questions my Reiki clients ask, along with my answers:

Q. What exactly do you do?

A. I smooth your energy field.  Each body has a bio-field, or aura, which is affected by physical and emotional states of being.  Reiki, Shamballa, Therapeutic Touch and Chi Healing all work on the same principal.  Though they may use different approaches, they all aim to smooth the bio-field.  It is this smoothing that results in deep relaxation, increased energy, feelings of well being, and reduced stress which all enhance your body's ability to heal itself.

Q.  What do you feel when you're doing Reiki? 

A.  Once prepared for a treatment, my hands are highly sensitized and tingle as I put them into your bio-field.   Some areas feel smoother than others.  The smooth areas feel tingly, while the rough areas send little jolts of energy through my fingers.  It feels like little bolts of lightening or electrical shocks.  I can also experience heat (in my hands only or in my whole body), coolness in my hands, or even a "spacey" feeling in my head.   I focus on the rough areas, working on them until they feel smooth.  Once the whole bio-field feels smooth, your treatment is complete.

Q.  How do you prepare?

A.  I take ten minutes to relax, calm my mind and set my intention.  My intention is to be an energy conduit, to provide you with whatever you need for your  "highest and best".  This means I don't try to direct the energy in any way.  Nor do I take credit for the healing that takes place.  I am only a conduit for the universal energy - it and your body do the rest.

Q.  Why was your treatment different from my last Reiki treatment?

A.  Each Reiki student is taught the history of Reiki, shown the proper hand positions, receives an attunement, practices under the watchful eye of their master, then offers Reiki to others.   Because intuition varies from one Reiki practitioner to the next, and because intuition is a large part of Reiki, each practitioner slowly develops their own style.   It's kind of like cursive writing.  Remember how we were all taught to write our upper and lower case letters exactly the same?  They even gave us special paper with extra lines so our letters would all be exactly the same size.   Yet as we practiced over time we all developed our own distinct writing style.  The same thing happens with Reiki.

Q.  Can I learn Reiki? 

A.  YES!  Everyone can learn to give Reiki.  I believe it is something each and every human being can learn because energy is the nature of our existence.  Think about it this way:  Everyone can run, but only a tiny percentage of us are born with the ability to be an olympic athelete.   But that doesn't stop the rest of us from running marathons to raise money for charity, or running to catch the last bus.  It's the same with energy.  A tiny percentage of us are born with a natural talent, but that shouldn't stop the rest of us from learning enough to treat our own aches and pains, help relieve a friend's headache, or ease a loved-one's depression.

The Science of Energy Healing

Here's a quote from Zhuang Zi's "Inner Chapters" (4th century BCE)

"There must be some primal force,
but it is impossible to locate.
I believe it exists, but cannot see it.
I see its results,
I can even feel it,
but it has no form."

This is a reference to chi, but if you think about it, applies equally today to something we all take for granted - gravity.   Scientists can tell us the effects of gravity, and there are numerous gravitation theories, but no one has found the "gravity particle" or any other energetic evidence of what makes gravity work.   So it's not surprising that science can't really explain the energy healing arts either.  But the information at the following links is a really good start!
