We offer a comprehensive system of mind-body training for health care professionals from all backgrounds including: nurses, massage therapists, TCM practitioners, physical therapists, energy workers and anyone interested in mind-body medicine.

Our certification programs have been especially noted to greatly enhance the abilities of practitioners of other energetic modalities such as reiki, healing touch, acupuncture, acupressure, massage and martial arts.

With a combined teaching and treating experience that spans over 30 + years, The Rising Lotus Qigong has expanded the content to give students the skills to teach, treat and be successful in a qigong practice. Our expertise lies in bridging the gap between theory, knowledge, and skill; providing our students with proven and effective treatment abilities.

We are unique in that we base our methods on years of experience in the martial, medical and spiritual schools (jing, qi, shen) which are the fundamental building blocks of an effective qigong practice. These concepts and experiences are essential to creating a qualified practitioner who can address the needs of a client in body, mind and spirit; while at the same time, allowing you, as the practitioner of any modality, to sustain a thriving practice without the risk of clinical burnout.
