Frequently Asked Questions


Where will my Qi Gong treatment take place?
Your Qi Gong  treatment will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music may be played if you like. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort.

Must I be completely undressed?
No, it is recommended you wear comfortably, loose clothing. 

Will I be covered during the session?
No, but if you feel cold, you can ask for a blanket to cover you.

What parts of my body will be touched 
With a light touch of my hands, I will touch various acupuncture points on the body, sending energy into a particular meridian, related to the organ I am working on.  Some of the Qi Gong work will take place with the hands above the body.  If you are uncomfortable being touched, the treatment can be done just as effectively without making contact with the body.

What will the Qi Gong treatment feel like ?
You will feel very relaxed and peaceful. You might even find yourself falling asleep.

What should I do during the the Qi Gong treatment ?
You will probably feel like closing your eyes, which helps your body and mind to relax.  If you have question during your treatment, it is perfectly alright to ask me. If anything feels uncomfortable, as you are having a treatment please let me know.

How will I feel after a Qi Gong Treatment ?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days.


What are the benefits of a Qi Gong Treatment ?
Qi Gong can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Qi Gong is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.

Are there any medical conditions that would make Qi Gong inadvisable?
No, but if you are under a doctor's care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for Qi Gong prior to having a treatment. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.
