Medical Qi GongMedical Qi Gong therapy (pronounced "chee gong") relaxes the body, promotes the flow of Qi (sometimes translated as life force), blood, oxygen and nutrients to all cells of the body, and supports the removal of waste products from the cells.  Medical Qi Gong's emphasis is on the mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual approaches to healing.  It has been found to combine well with both western medical treatment and holistic treatment. 

Homeopathy.   Homeopathy is a method of medical treatment designed to stimulate the body's own healing processes in order to cure illnesses.  The two cornerstones of homeopathy are that "likes are cured by likes" and that remedies must be properly diluted to eliminate or minimize toxic effects.  Homeopathic products are designed to work with the body's defense mechanisms and facilitate the body's elimination of toxic substances. 

Body/Mind Clearing and Postural IntegrationBody/Mind Clearing is based on the principle that the body and mind are deeply interrelated.  This unique system releases past trauma stored in the muscular structure and the mind using applied kinesiology (muscle testing), neurolinguistic programming (NLP) and advanced deep tissue massage (Postural Integration). 

Acupuncture.   Acupuncture improves bodily function by enabling Qi to move freely.  Through the insertion of fine needles at specific points in the body (acu-points) along the body's energetic pathways (meridians), acupuncture stimulates the smooth circulation of Qi energy, and breaks up Qi stagnation.
