Qi 4 Life Oriental Wellness

Qi 4 Life (pronounced chee for life)  Oriental Wellness.

I discovered traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) through personal experience. My early childhood was influenced by my father who was a Homeopathic physician. He introduced me to medicine from a holistic perspective. I believe the human body was created to be self-healing and that the visible symptoms of illneww are often the sign of some sort of internal imbalance. The asian healing arts have known this and have successfully treated billions of people in a holistic way for several thousand years.

I approach Oriental Wellness as practiced in China as TCM and in other Asian countries. It is a holistic approach that integrates the mind, body and spirit. There are four general modalities that constitute TCM. They are: Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Massage, and Energy. Each of these work in their own ways to manipulate the body's own internal energy known as Qi (or Chi) so as to provide healing.

In 1985, I was diagnosed with 4th stage Melanoma, an advanced form of cancer. The cancer had already spread from my skin into my lymphatic system. My doctors said that I would likely be dead within a matter of only a few months. The cancer was removed by surgery. Following that, I volunteered for an experimental protocol using chemotherapy. This protocol was subsequently found to be ineffective. So, tired and debilitated from the year-long study, I joining a beginner's class in Taijiquan (T'ai Chi) hoping to regain some of my strength and vitality. Through the practice of Taiji, I got in touch with my internal energy and learned about QiGong or "energy work". Ulitmately, this led me taking classes in Reiki (a Japanese energy modality). This was later followed by classes in Chinese QiGong and then by an intensive course of study at the prestigious China Academy of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Today, my energy and vitality have greatly improved, my health has recovered, and I have been cancer-free for 30 years. In addition, my life-long symptoms of asthma have been greatly reduced and my seasonal allergies have all but disappeared. I believe that this is all a direct result of practicing Chinese Taiji and QiGong. I now hold certificates in traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture and Qi healing. I am also a Reiki/Seichim Master and a member of the International Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan Association. I have had the great fortune to study with several great Taiji Masters. I have taught classes in Taiji and QiGong. I also teach meditation, practice several types of oriental healing, and provide professional personal coaching.

Please take the time to explore this website. It contains a lot of inforomation about several Asian healing modalities.

I hope you enjoy what you will find.
