Five Element Qigong Healing is a two-day course that teaches students a basic qi or energy healing protocol. Qigong healing can be done with hands off the body or with more robust touch, depending on the specific technique. Either way works because we are following the principles of Chinese Medicine using acupoints and meridian flows as well as circulations in the body that the Chinese have known about for centuries. This protocol can be done as a stand-alone healing, or any of the specific techniques can be integrated into your regular massage routine.

In addition to learning the basic qi energy healing protocol, you will learn:

• Techniques for purging, tonifying and regulating the five yin organs of the body as well as working with the energy fields that surround the body

• How to create a protective energy field for yourself to keep from absorbing pathogenic energy

• How to use energy, intention and your voice to facilitate greater results with your work

• Basic knowledge of the Five Element emotions and spiritual virtues to connect more deeply with your client and to achieve greater healing results

• Qigong exercises and meditations to use for your own cultivation and self-protection.

Please bring comfortable clothing (gym or yogawear).
