Shaolin Qi Massage
Shaolin Qi Massage – Chi is the animating energy of the universe that drives all activity any processes. When we talk about Chi in Qi massage, we are focusing on the flow and circulation of Qi within the human body. In Chinese terms, any sickness or illness is due to a blockage or disturbance in the natural flow of Qi. Perhaps even more important is that our sense of vitality and well-being, our ability to enjoy life and have abundant energy for our work, play and relationships depends on us having abundant and freely flowing Qi.
