What is Qigong?
"Qi" translates to life force or energy. "Gong" translates to practice. Qigong is the practice of energy cultivation.
Qigong is a health art and science that originated in China approximately 5,000 years ago. It is based on the ancient understanding, later proved by Albert Einstein, that everything in the universe is composed of energy and that everything has a dynamic energetic relationship with the rest of the universe. Qigong originated with the belief that humans have an unfathomable amount of unrealized potential. We are all, for example, capable of self-healing heavy-duty disease and illness, yet our ability to do this has been "blocked" over generations due to both the lack of attention we give our Qi and an inattentiveness to our natural dynamic relationship with the rest of the universe. This lost balance most commonly manifests as physical unhealthiness, stress, loneliness, anger, unhappiness, and a lack of fulfillment. These imbalances run rampant in today's world. Luckily Qigong can help uncover the buried treasures that lie within everyone. As Einstein proved, energy cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be transformed. Qigong's aim is to transform these energetic imbalances and restore one's natural state of being.
Qigong's wide scope of practice includes repetitive physical movements, special breathing, meditations, and visualization techniques to help clear the energetic blockages in the body that prevent us from manifesting our full potential as human beings. Practicing Qigong on a regular basis greatly reduces the likelihood of developing disease or illness and creates an increased sense of overall happiness and peacefulness. Not only is Qigong a self-healing practice, It can also be used to greatly help others in the form of Qigong Healing Sessions, a form that Travis specializes in.
What is a Qigong Healing Session?
Qigong Healing sessions are highly individualized, catering to the individual needs of the client. Travis uses hands-on techniques, similar to gentle massage therapy, as well as non-contact techniques that move energetic blockages and restore the natural movement of life in the patient. Qigong Healing sessions generally focus on empowering the three dantians (elixer fields), which are the centers of one's physical vitality, love, and wisdom. Travis also works with the internal organ systems and meridians, much like acupuncture. On a more surface level, healing sessions are often extremely relaxing and calming, and are a healthy, potent, and lasting way to relieve stress. The aim for all clients is that they will eventually uncover self-healing abilities that help them to stay happy, healthy, and balanced without any outside health assistance.
