QiGong

What Is Qigong?

Qigong is a type of Chinese martial art related to Tai Chi using a holistic system of slow exercise movements, concentration, controlled breathing, and meditation to promote health and spirituality.

Qigong Benefits & Healing

Similar to yoga, more and more doctors are promoting relaxation to reduce stress and promote healing. The benefits of Qigong are calming the mind and body then focus the energy on self-healing. Strengthening the muscles with low impact exercises prevent falls and gives balance to the body. The concentration of Qi gong therapy achieves a relaxed state of mind reducing stress.

“Mindful or meditative movement allows the body to do what it does best, which is to make its own medicine, a natural result of calming the mind, deepening the breath and relaxing the muscles during gentle movement. During the practices of qigong and tai chi, the biochemicals that support health and immune function increase, while the biochemicals that produce inflammation, pain and depression/anxiety are lessened.”
Professor Linda Larkey of Arizona State University

I've been having acupuncture, chiropractic, massage and many other types of wholistic touch type therapies for years. I had my first acupuncture session with Callie a few days ago and found it one of the best I've ever received. I highly recommend her and I will definitely go back. A couple of days later now, I no longer have neck pain, I'm feeling much more balanced and my sleep has improved. Boise is lucky to have Callie.

Callie is an amazing acupuncturist! From the thorough intake to the amazing sessions, I really felt and experienced positive changes with my shoulder issues. The sessions are very relaxing and vitalistic, which is what I look for in a healer. I like working with someone who looks at helping facilitate healing within the body, and I really got that with Callie. I highly recommend her!

Callie is one of a kind. A true gem on your path to health. She helped to rebalance me in some incredible ways. I apologize for the TMI, but I don't know how else to express that I had some female issues. Didn't get my period in months. With Callie's guidance, I was flowing once again. That's not all she did for me either. I would not only recommend her, I will continue to see her for my health maintenance. See her, you won't regret it!

Callie is an amazingly gifted TCM practitioner. I have a sensitive system and am very particular when it comes to having anyone work with me. From her thorough intake process to her meticulous, compassionate process of treatment and her knowledge of elements and cures, Callie is by far one of the best I’ve ever been to in over 20 years. Boise is lucky to have her services!
