Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
My focus at the Center is on the health and wellness practices of Qigong and Jin Shin Jyutsu.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) recognizes several pathways (meridians) within the body that direct Qi (vital energy) flow to our organs. A person is believed to become ill when this Qi flow becomes blocked which creates an imbalance of the body's vital energy. Health is believed to be restored by eliminating these blockages.
As a healing art, Qigong (estimated to be anywhere from 2000 to 5000 years old) practitioners utilize breath, posture and prescribed movement to foster prevention of an energetic imbalance in the body and to promote self-healing through balancing the body's energy system, enhancing the innate capacity of the body to heal.
Jin Shin Jyutsu, known as a physio-philosophy, also offers the opportunity to tap into the body's innate ability to harmonize the life energy in the body.
According to ancient written records, which remain in the Archives of the Imperial Palace in Japan, Jin Shin Jyutsu was widely known before the birth of Gautama (Buddha, India), before the birth of Moses (recorded in the Bible), and before the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things – Japan, A.D. 712).
As with Qigong, Jin Shin Jyutsu accesses energy pathways that feed life into our bodies through the use of 26 points on the body. When one or more of the energy paths becomes blocked, the resulting stagnation can disrupt the local area and eventually restrict the complete path of energy flow. By combining these points in a prescribed manner we can participate actively to regain the flow of energy in our bodies.
Both arts act as a valuable complement to conventional healing methods, inducing relaxation and reducing the effects of stress.
In addition to providing private Qigong and Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions, Qigong classes including Six Healing Sounds (Liu Zi Jue 六字訣), The Eight Pieces of Brocade set (Ba Duan Jin 段锦气功), Muscle-Tendon Change Classic (Yi Jin Jing Qigong 易筋经) — all officially recognized in 2003 by the Chinese Health Qigong Association for health maintenance — and seasonal Qigong are now being scheduled.
