What is Qigong?
Qi (‘Chee’), the vital energy in everything, is referred to as the breath and can pass through clothing, so no need to disrobe for the treatment.
Gong is the acquired skill obtained through work. So, put the two together and Qigong is the acquired skill of cultivating the free flow of Qi within one’s body.
The first treatment session is 75 min, and all treatments after are 60 min in length.
Qigong with Cupping is a 90 min treatment.
What is Medical Qigong?
Medical Qigong derives from an ancient form of Chinese Energetic Medicine. It comes from one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM): acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage, and Qigong.
Medical Qigong is a learned skill that uses the principles of Qigong and concepts rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Medical Qigong Practitioner formulates a diagnosis based on the client’s symptoms.
The idea is to treat the symptoms (the flower) to get to the root of the disharmony.
What to expect
The Medical Qigong Treatment:
An initial session will run for approximately 1 hour 15 minutes. Follow-up sessions will be 1 hour. A first-time client session will include an explanation of things to expect. Please plan your time accordingly.
A Medical Qigong treatment with cupping will be 1 hour 30 minutes.
Wear comfortable clothing and take off your shoes for the treatment. You will be lying on a massage table, with a bolster and pillows if needed.
Most often, Kiki will be working approximately a foot away from your body. He can use physical contact to manipulate and guide the movement of energy/Qi. He will communicate when touch will be needed and ask for your consent.
If you are pregnant or are receiving treatment for an active cancer diagnosis, Kiki cannot treat you with his current training. So please let us know. If you are in remission, then he is OK with proceeding with the treatment.
Clients have found the treatments to be relaxing and refreshing. One client stated that they felt “weightless.”
