Qigong(Chi Kung) is the cultivation of your life force energy through gentle exercises, meditation, and clinical treatment. Rooted in Taoism, Qigong constitutes a multitude of forms that can harmonize the body’s energies, increase vitality, strengthen immunity, enhance concentration, balance emotion and enhance your spiritual connection. Qigong Treatment is an off-the-body expression of Classical Chinese Medicine. Another way of framing this might be to call it quantum engineering supporting multiple levels of our human expression.
The energy body is impacted by emotional, physical, and environmental influences. Using road repair as an analogy to explain the integration of treatment and self-practice would look like this. If a mud slide occurs on a California highway, traffic will slow, stagnate, possibly even require another route around the blockage. A crew with specialized machinery will come in and remove the mud slide and begin to repair the road. Eventually, the responsibility of road repair and maintenance returns to the regularly assigned road crew. The Qi in our bodies is like the traffic. Life events may cause it to slow or reroute its way through the body. Treatment applies the specialized effort and the client’s self practice and meditation provide the ongoing maintenance.

What a Session Looks Like
Because Qigong works on the whole person, this work can be good support when we are facing physical, emotional, and mental stress.
While we are being asked to limit our in-person experiences, I have decided to move my practice to doing only remote Qigong treatments. Working remotely, I work through the quantum field, connecting with your energy body through this field. Since the quantum field allows us to work outside of space or time, you get to stay home as I work with you from my own home. Throughout the years I have been practicing, I have experienced remote treatments are just as effective as in-person treatments. I have treated folks while they are traveling, living out of state, and in hospitals. I still assess and treat invasive, the balance and flow of your energy body, and the return of energies that might have gone missing.
I've decided to offer these remote treatments in two different ways. With many of my remote clients we set a time, speak on the phone and discuss current concerns at the beginning, then the client lies down at home while I do the treatment. When it is complete, I call back and review findings and provide any coaching to help integrate the work into your life. These treatments will be at $90 for an hour or $120 for 90 minutes with these time frames including the initial talk and debrief.
The second option will be to do the session without the telephone consult and I will email or text a synopsis after the session is complete. This option is $50-$75.
When in person, a 90 minute session includes discussion of current concerns, assessment and treatment, and a review of findings, Qigong instruction, and coaching to help integrate the work into your life. During the assessment and treatment you will lie comfortably clothed on a massage table while I guide us both into a meditative state. Once we are centered, I assess and treat you through the field (this means very little touch occurs during these sessions).
Regardless of whether a first session is in-person or remote, follow-up sessions usually occur monthly, though, with chronic issues, we may start with three sessions scheduled more closely together. As the clients system progresses and stabilizes, the sessions move out to a quarterly tune-up.
Sometimes our precious four leggeds are facing challenges that seem inexplicable or unresolvable. While this treatment in no way replaces veterinary care, it does allow for a look at the subtle energetic influences that may be preventing an animal from healing completely or as quickly as they might. I have also found that a short series of treatments, 2-3, can help a rescued animal release some of the negative influences of their past and become more adoptable or more easily integrated into their new home. Because these friends tend to be more receptive to the work, the sessions are shorter. I do all of these remotely. The cost is $80 per treatment.
Notes on Rates
A fee of 1/2 the cost of the session is charged for a first time no-show or cancelled appointment if less than 24 hours notice is given. A full fee is charged for any subsequent missed session.
What Folks Are Saying
I cannot thank you enough for the energy treatment. You've given me my life back. That anger, frustration, and anxiety was taking over every aspect of my life. I finally feel like myself again and it is AWESOME! -M. Townsend, Manitowoc, WI
In 2008, I developed an issue that no amount of doctor's appointments could seem to fix. I was miserable and angry and described my problem to Karen. She told me she'd like to give fixing it a try, and I decided to let her, even though I'd never really given much thought to qigong. Karen fixed my problem in one session, just one, and I've had zero problems since. I am so incredibly grateful and highly recommend her services to anyone. -Ann A., Austin, TX
