WHAT IS MEDICAL QiGONG?
Medical Qigong is an energetic healing practice that is combined with herbs, movement practices & meditations. We work together to uncover unconscious conditioning and bring balance so true healing can begin on a deep, personal level.
Medical qigong is a complete system of health care rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that recognizes the root causes of symptoms or disease, and treats the client as a whole using the same modalities practiced by acupuncturists & doctors of TCM.
Life is all about patterns. A constant cycling of events that coalesce into constellations of meaning. If we look into these patterns we can begin to see the way the universe, our bodies & energy works.
The 5 elements of Fire, Earth, Metal, Water & Wood represent the universal flow & characteristics of life. Through observation & conversation we work to uncover your 5-Element foundation & bring balance to your entire system.
Natural medicine has always been a passion for Josh as he works to bring balance in every interaction. Josh began his healing career 20+ years ago when he studied herbalism & supplements before living abroad in Thailand where he learned Traditional Thai Massage from the Buddhist temple that has been teaching this modality for 400+ years.
Since then Josh has been working with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and the esoteric world of Taoism. Josh completed his 3-year Medical Qigong Practitioner program with Chi Wellness Center in 2022 under the instruction of Debra Lin Allen, a 5th generation Qigong healer.
Josh invites you to experience his intuitive touch and uncanny ability to listen, observe & bring clarity to unconscious patterns that keep us from our ultimate health & happiness.

Medical Qigong begins with observations and conversations to understand the dis-ease of the body. We will spend time learning about your health history before we will hone in on a few healing objectives. Then you will lie down while we work together to tackle energetic blocks of the mind and body to bring you back into your true self. This primarily contact-free practice works by first assessing the energetic and life systems before I use my intent and chi to balance and assess the energetic systems of the body. Patients are supported with handouts and materials to integrate the work needed to bring balance to your concerns.
Thai massage is more than a massage as it combines compression, acupressure & passive stretching to open and relax the body. The client wears loose fitting clothes and lies on a floor mat while the practitioner uses their entire body, including their hands, elbows, feet, & knees to create deep, gentle pressure.
Helps relax & open up the body with targeted, gentle to deep pressure. These sessions are offered with oil or oil-free with the client on a massage table undressed to their level of comfort. During our session we will focus on a few areas and work to unlock the body so you can return to flow and ease.

Explore life’s questions and get clear answers by accessing the wisdom of the ancient codex known as the iChing & the 5-Elements. These two systems encompass the foundation of Chinese medicine & modern society by providing us universal constants in an ever changing world. Come with a question and/or situation that you seek understanding and we can see how your elemental constitution & universal forces are impacting your process & decisions.
The modern human experience is epic. We have access to so much that we find ourselves searching outside of ourselves for fulfillment. We are taught by society to work counter our own nature & that of the natural world. Qigong is an ancient & accessible system that fosters awareness as you learn how to harmonize your body, mind & spirit.
Qigong assists the body to strengthen & regulate the internal organs, calm the nervous system & the immune system, relieve pain, regulate hormones, and release deep-seated emotions & stress.
