What is Holistic Healing?

Disease has its roots in mental and emotional blockages or destructive excesses. Healing only becomes genuinely effective when these blockages or excesses are removed through appropriate techniques. Thoughts and emotions along with external attractions and anxieties deprive the body and lead to a closing down of normal physiological functioning. The mind, which has been fragmented and dominated by memory, thoughts and emotions, must be reclaimed and returned to the body. When the mind returns the body revives.

The mind is reclaimed when one practices qigong movements and meditation. These generate a bodyward, downward "presence."

The same principles that bring about self-healing also bring about healing in others.

Healing is an open-ended process. Once begun and with continued, sustained and sincere practice, it improves every aspect of a person’s life. One even gains an understanding of life beyond the normal lifespan.

What to Expect in a Healing Session

Healing sessions are, generally, three-quarters of an hour to an hour in length. A session will often include instruction in movements and/or meditation. The principal modality in a treatment is meditation to clear karma combined with gentle and relaxing massage and energy work.

Therapy is complementary to medical or alternative treatment.

Attitude of the Person Being Healed

Be Open-Minded

It is important not to allow doubt to hinder the possibility of healing.

Be Sincere

Hold a sincere desire to be well and a sincere belief that you will be well. Don't allow previous failures or disappointments to harden into a mental block that prevents your healing.

Be Willing to Cooperate with the Therapist

Healing procedures require the patient to relax and let go of mental activities. The therapist will typically assign exercises to be done at home. It is important that practice of these be maintained as they will extend the effect of the healing. They also serve the purpose of occupying the mind and keeping it from being taken up with negative thoughts that can compound disease problems.

What People Say

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over a year ago after suffering debilitating chronic pain, sleep disturbance and fatigue for over 2 years. I have always been a positive, active person and this diagnosis changed my world. I stopped working and enjoying activities that I had participated in my entire life. After many different doctors, medications and alternative therapies I was referred to Jack. I have participated in both Level 1 and Level 2 training sessions and they have changed my life. Jack is very passionate about qigong and compassionate about each person he works with. After several months of daily practice and weekly visits to see Jack for one-on-one healing sessions, I can truly say that I control my fibromyalgia and it no longer controls me. I am now weaning myself from medications that came with side effects and planning to return to my job. Qigong has helped my pain, my stress and my sleep and I will be forever grateful to have found it. Thank you, Jack.
