Medical QiGong Therapy
According to Chinese Medicine, all illness and dis-ease begin on an energetic level. Medical QiGong assesses disturbances in the body's energy system, and helps facilitate a balanced and harmonious state in those energies. Whether you just want to maintain your health, or you are dealing with a specific health challenge- Medical QiGong Therapy will help you feel your best, and facilitate healing on the deepest level.
A Medical QiGong Therapist may use touch or gentle pressure to stimulate acupressure points and work with your energy meridians - like acupuncture, but without the needles. During treatment, the practitioner may also use his or her hands in the area just around your body, without making direct contact, to work with your body's energy. The skilled practitioner can feel where the energy blockages are in the body, work to clear stagnation, and emit Qi (energy) to nourish areas in need.
Medical QiGong does not purport to diagnose or treat disease and does not substitute for diagnosis or treatment from a qualified health practitioner for illnesses, injuries, or other medical conditions.
Initial Assessment and Tongue Diagnosis
We'll start by gathering information about your health and lifestyle. You'll fill out a health questionnaire ahead of time, then we'll go over it and talk about any factors that may be contributing to energy imbalance. I'll also take a look at your tongue. In Chinese medicine, the condition of the tongue can provide a very accurate and reliable picture of what's happening within your energy system. This initial assessment and counseling will take about 30 minutes.
Then, you'll lie comfortably on a massage table, fully clothed, while I assess the condition of your energy system, feel where blockages are, and provide treatment. Your initial appointment will take a total of about 90 minutes. You can expect to find it deeply relaxing!
QiGong Exercise Prescription
Based on your initial assessment, and any energy imbalances discovered during treatment, you may be given specific QiGong exercises or meditations you can do at home to help restore balance and support your health.
Nutrition and Lifestyle Counseling
Real and lasting healing requires finding and addressing the root causes of disease. Many things can create imbalance in your energy system and, if not addressed, will eventually manifest as symptoms or illness on physical, mental or emotional levels.
Chinese medicine stresses balance as a key to health: between rest and activity, in your diet, and in your lifestyle. One of the biggest factors that affects our energy systems, and our health, is our mental/emotional state. Finding ways to de-stress and create emotional balance in our lives is key. Together, we'll look at all these factors and make a plan to help you create a lifestyle that fosters your health and well-being.
Remote Energy Healing Treatment
I can also work remotely on your energy system, without having to be in your physical presence. The practice of distance healing is an intuitive skill, and has been explained using theories from Quantum Physics and Einstein's Theory of Relativity.
It has proven to be quite effective. I have helped many people reduce pain and speed healing after surgery or injuries, as well as recover from illness. The doctors are often amazed at how well their patients are healing!
Hear what a few of Risa's clients have to say...
"I called Risa in a panic because, on a scale of 1 - 10, my post-surgical pain level was at about a level 8. After an hour of remote energy healing, it was down to about a level 2. My husband thinks it's crazy, but it works!"

"My husband fell and broke his rib and had a bad contusion on his shin. He also suffers from complications of diabetes, so it wasn't healing well.
He was in a lot of pain, and every night he would wake up after a few hours, and have to lay in the recliner.
Risa did some remote healing on him one night after he went to sleep. It was the first time he slept through the night in 3 months! In the morning, I asked him how he felt, and he said, "It actually feels a lot better." He didn't know I had Risa work on him!
