Zu Qigong Practitioner Workshops

Zu Qigong

Foot Energy Work

AoR CPD approved workshop

DSC_6478

Zu Qigong is a gentle therapeutic technique, working only on the feet and ankles, combining the underlying theories of reflexology and Qigong. There is no diagnosing, stimulating or sedating of reflexes, merely encouraging the natural flow of Qi. By removing the physiology of disease from the therapeutic equation and completely focusing on the energy network, diagnosis ceases to be important, enabling the therapist to focus on their own sensory perception and energy exchange, working with what is actually detected rather than what is expected. Zu Qigong, with its simplicity and calming, gentle approach, once mastered, can offer a meditative type experience for practitioner and recipient alike…………. A pleasure to give and receive!
