Master Chunyi Lin created Qi~ssage to provide you with another simple yet very powerful technique to help you achieve and maintain optimal health, wellness, and healing. Like massage, Qi~ssage involves touching and physical stimulation of the body. Like Qigong, Qi~ssage focuses on balancing and enhancing the flow of energy through the body's energy channels, or meridians.

We are accepting only 24 people to this Retreat to allow for the experiences of beautiful individual healing sessions.


How does Spring Forest Qigong work?

Since literally everything is energy, that means you are an energy being. Every cell in your body is a form of energy. Your thoughts are also a form of energy. Sickness, whether it manifests physically, mentally, or emotionally, is also a form of energy.

Energy cannot be created nor destroyed, but it can be transformed. In fact, energy is constantly in the process of transforming. The only question with your body's energy is whether it is transformed for better or for worse. Simply put, Spring Forest Qigong healing is accomplished by manipulating and transforming the energy that is the root cause of sickness. Spring Forest Qigong practice can help you transform your body's energy for the better and even undo the worse.

So know that you are the healer within!
