I have been working with the healing arts and sciences all of my adult life and have trained in many medical and health practices, both eastern and western. I started my exploration of the human being as an academic. I was doing graduate work in theoretical neurophysics when a close friend fell ill. After watching the wonderful healthcare professionals who worked with him through his last days, I decided instead to enter the medical field. I am a Registered Nurse, specializing in Home Health and Hospice, and a Certified Wound and Ostomy Nurse. This healthcare experience helps me to understand and integrate symptom patterns and disease processes from a western medicine perspective, even as I help clients work with those patterns from an energetic perspective.
Chinese Medicine began calling to me over a decade ago, and I have been engaged in a detailed study ever since. I find it to be a much more accurate model of the human experience than western medicine. Each has their place.
For many years I led groups in dream work, a practice that taught me the beauty and subtlety of the language within. Energetic healing was a core part of that practice.
For the last 30 years, I have trained in, and taught, a wide variety of martial arts, including Kung Fu, Taichi and Bagua. Because of my background as a martial arts instructor, I am able to help clients find the harmony and support inherent in the physical structure of the body, and teach them to draw on that throughout their Qigong practice.
I am a firm believer in the healing powers of Tai Chi, and Qigong, as I myself have had the opportunity to experience their transformative power.
Medical Qigong allows me to integrate all of these experiences in order to offer clients a powerful healing opportunity.
