Private Medical Qigong Treatments: The Practitioner will do an assessment of the Client’s condition at the beginning of each treatment to determine a course of action. In some cases, information may be gathered prior to the initial treatment and/or in between treatments. During the treatment, as the Qi moves, the Client may feel varying sensations such as warmth, coolness, tingling, and muscular twitching. after the treatment, the Client will likely feel relaxed, have a general sense of well-being and vitality, and be more present. Results will vary, depending on the condition or issue being treated, and the length of time it has been present.
Private Lessons: The Practitioner offers private lessons one-on-one or in a private small group.
