Qi Gong is a mindful-movement practice and a treatment modality in traditional Chinese medicine. The practice of Qi Gong involves meditative focus, coordinated breathing, self-massage and gentle muscle engagement with the aim of building energy (Qi), improving mobility, proprioception and regulating emotional health. Like Tai Chi, Qi Gong originated in ancient China and has been used to improve health and wellbeing for centuries.

Current research indicates Qi Gong may be helpful in the treatment of persistent pain.
In this workshop, movement educator Clair Turner Reid and acupuncturist Matthew Sedo will be sharing some tools of Qi Gong practice for better self management.

You will learn:

  • Principles, philosophy and benefits of Qi Gong
  • Movements, posture, self-massage and breathing techniques
  • Mindfulness-based approaches to pain management
