QIGONG & SHIATSU MASSAGE
Injury and illness cause pain and dysfunction to our physical body as well as damage to our energy body, or Qi. Focusing solely on the physical body without addressing the energy body can lead to an incomplete recovery that can be difficult and frustrating! Incorporating energetic healing treatments into your recovery plan can maximize the benefits of the physical exercises and movements (Pilates, physical therapy, etc.) to heal.
At LightSpace we offer two approaches to restoring health and wellness for BOTH the physical and energetic body – Clinical Qigong and Shiatsu Massage. These treatments are designed to help restore energetic balance, health and wellness, and increased energy or “Qi” flow to the affected areas. Clinical Qigong and Shiatsu use all the same points and channels used in Acupuncture, but without the use of needles.
Clinical Qigong and Shiatsu Massage can address the following:
- Pain – excels as a pain relief therapy
- Plantar Fasciitis
- High/low blood pressure
- Digestion issues
- Respiratory issues
- Immune/auto-immune issues
- Women’s health issues
- Fascial damage
Clinical Qigong, or Taoist Neuro-Energetic Therapeutics, is the therapeutic art of Qi manipulation. Clinical Qigong practitioners cultivate and utilize their own developed Qi to address the entire neuro-energetic system, correcting energetic imbalances found in the body. It includes both on and off body techniques that restore balance, or homeostasis to the recipient. Techniques include a very light touch along the nerve synapses of the spine, and/or Qi projection (called “Wei Qi Liao Fa” – Healing with External Energy).
At LightSpace, our Clinical Qigong Treatments take place on a massage table, in a private space with clients fully clothed.
Shiatsu Massage uses touch along the body’s energy channels to address imbalances allowing the body to return to homeostasis or balance. Shiatsu can also help to create space throughout the body by rotating and stretching limbs and joints. The depth and intensity of the technique will vary based on your needs and preferences.
At LightSpace, Shiatsu is performed on a clothed recipient on a futon on the floor of a private space.
Available by appointment only
**Please note: at least 3-5 treatment sessions are recommended for proper restoration of Qi flow and balance in one’s body.
