Qi Day 2016

On Sunday, August 28th we are celebrating Vancouver’s First Qi Day! From 10 -4pm at the Jim Deva Plaza in Davie Village, we will be offering free  50 minute Qi Gong treatments and classes. If you have never experienced qi gong, this is a wonderful opportunity to try it.

Qi Gong is one of the 4 branches of Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, herbology, martial arts and qi gong). It is based on the belief system we have our physical, emotional and mental, and spiritual energy. If there is any stagnant qi in any of those wei chi fields, it can cause disease. For thousands of years, qi gong doctors would prescribe exercises to patients. 80% of the patients who completed the exercises, did not need to come back for another visit.


The Class Schedule is:

10am Jennifer Clarke

11am Minke De Vos

12pm Jacob Larmour

1pm Blanche Boyce

2pm Caroline MacGillivray (me)

3pm John Weiss

In addition to the qi gong classes, there will be qi gong healers there. The qi gong treatments will be 15 to 20 minutes long. There will also be group acupuncture too.

I’m looking forward to teaching and celebrating the healing power of qi gong. I hope to see you there.
