Wellness

Everything flourishes; each returns to its root
Returning to the root is called tranquility
Tranquility is called returning to one's nature
Returning to one's nature is called constancy
Knowing constancy is called clarity
- Lao Tzu

Meditation & Qigong

While many are familiar with meditation, fewer have been exposed to the practice of qigong (pronounced "chi gong").  Qigong loosely translates to "energy cultivation."  Utilizing breath, standing postures and fluid movement, this ancient Chinese art opens the meridian energy channels throughout your body, revitalizes your spirit and promotes healing, flexibility, longevity and inner awareness.  Like meditation, qigong relieves mental and physical stress, calming, balancing and unifying the mind and body.

Acupuncture
Acupressure & Massage

The healing arts of acupuncture, acupressure and massage originate in ancient China and utilize the meridians and energy channels of the body to balance, revitalize and heal.  The stress of a daily routine, strenuous physical exercise like surfing, or emotional events can create tension in the facia and muscles, which may manifest itself as physical injuries or pain.  Acupuncture, acupressure and massage are effective tools to reduce and eliminate tension and blockages in the body’s natural energy field, which is the vital life force that allows the body to heal itself.     

 

Sessions run approximately 90 minutes 

Private session: $120

Training

Challenge your body and mind with a unique training experience that incorporates timeless and proven techniques from the disciplines of kung fu, qigong and taichi chuan. No prior martial arts experience is required or necessary.  These techniques derive strength, quickness and power from the body’s inherent physical structure and innate energy force and the general principal of yin and yang.  This style of training strengthens facia and muscles while developing balance, focus and flexibility.
