You can increase your strength, balance and resiliency with Qigong! Try Qigong, an ancient Chinese art that blends mindfulness with simple exercises. It is easy to learn and easy to do in just a few minutes a day without special attire, mats or equipment. Qigong combines attention to breathing, movement and thought to help you feel both energized and relaxed.
If you have reduced mobility, strength or flexibility, we develop a customized approach that fits you.
Qigong and Tai Chi have been scientifically shown to reduce pain, anxiety, depression, blood pressure and inflammation; it improves balance, cognitive performance, the immune system and quality of sleep.
Please join Claire Holland M.D., L.M.T. Certified Qigong Instructor. She would love to meet you!
