MindBodyHerbs channels healing energy to correct imbalances in the body’s “energy field” and restore health.
Meaning “universal life energy” in Japanese, Reiki is a healing touch therapy wherein the practitioner affects the client’s energy flow and allows for self-healing. External Qi Therapy focuses on breaking up areas of stagnation. It is regulating, rejuvenating, and encourages deep relaxation.


Qi Gong is a combination of two ideas: Qi (pronounced "chee") is a concept that doesn't have a completely accurate translation from Mandarin to English. A good way to think about qi is that it is the force that flows through nature. For our purposes we can think of qi as the breath of life, or vital energy that flows through all things. Gong (pronounced "gung") refers to the skill of working with or cultivating self-discipline and achievement. Together, Qi Gong means the skill of cultivating vital energy, or the ability to work with the electromagnetic energy of the body.

Qi gong is a mind-body practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating postures, movement, breathing techniques, and focused intention. Tai chi is a subset of qi gong and many qi gong styles one might recognize as Tai chi.

Medical Qi Gong therapy is the oldest therapeutic modality of Chinese medicine and is one of the five main branches of Chinese medicine (along with acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition therapy and therapeutic massage). As with the other "branches" of Chinese medicine, healing occurs through balancing qi or electromagnetic energy, which surrounds and pervades all living creatures. It is a comprehensive system of healthcare that addresses the root cause of symptoms or disease and treats the client or patient as a whole.

Disruptions in the electromagnetic energy of the body occur throughout our lifetime as a result of poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, injuries, surgery, suppression of emotions, aging, etc. The goal of qi gong is to correct these bio-energetic imbalances and blockages. This enables the body to strengthen and regulate the internal organs, the nervous system and the immune system, relieve pain, regulate hormones, and strengthen and release deep-seated emotions and stress.

Drawing upon his ability to sense and manipulate qi developed through dedicated study and self-cultivation, David uses qi emission and/or teaches medical qi gong exercises and meditations based upon a differential diagnosis rooted in Chinese medical theory to restore health and wellness. 

After treatment the client may be given qi gong prescriptions to assist in their ongoing healing.

In China, and more recently in the United States, doctors have applied qi gong in hospitals and clinics to treat individuals suffering from a variety of ailments. Medical qi gong therapy and prescriptions can be used to help people with cancer and help reduce or eliminate side effects from radiation and chemotherapy. It may help in treating cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and post-stroke syndrome. Qi gong is especially useful in treating any kind of chronic pain, as well as chronic disorders of the digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, and nervous systems.
