April News

Wow, I hope everyone is getting outside into the beautiful sunshine!  It’s nice to see the green grass, and all the active people outside on their bikes and in their tank tops!

I am happy to announce the start of a new qigong exercise class – the Wudang Regulating Exercise Class – for more information see:  Qigong Wudang flyer.  It is the first time this class will be offered, and it will be held at Mountain Pose Yoga and Wellness Studio for four weeks, starting May 3.  This class is appropriate for people of all ages and abilities, and as with the other classes, will leave you feeling more energetic and peaceful after each class.  Please email me at ckimoto@telus.net to state your intention to attend – a minimum of 5 people is required.  A reminder that the Qigong Healing Workout will be offered again at the College of the Rockies, Cranbrook campus, for six Tuesdays starting May 8 – please contact the College to register.

The MQT7 seminar in Victoria was fantastic!  We had a chance to practice our newfound skills at two clinics – the first day was a gynecology clinic,  and after it was done, I committed to do what I could to assist women with gynecology issues of all kinds (fibroids, cysts, endometriosis, amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, etc).  The second day was a neurology clinic, and I had the opportunity to provide a treatment for a young woman who had suffered massive head trauma approximately two years ago and was continuing to recover from her ordeal.  Wouldn’t you know the first person I treated upon my return from Victoria was a client with a gynecological issue – how perfect was that?

In May, I am going to Vancouver to complete 32 more hours of Oriental Medicine; we will be learning about internal climatic factors, and how they arise from a simple syndrome (imbalance) to pathology.  Five element energetics will be discussed and we will learn more about particularly powerful points along the 6 Yin channels.  Looking forward to that!  As well, I will attend the last seminar for the Therapist level, MQT8, in June – the focus of this seminar is oncology.  As mentioned previously, there will be a free cancer clinic offered June 9 and 10; please contact me if you or anyone else you know would be interested in participating.  The clinic will also be held in Vancouver.

I am receiving clients at Elemental Healing as well as Mountain Pose Yoga currently.  I am also available to do distant treatments or home visits if you prefer.  If you contact me and say you saw this post on my website/blog, you will receive two treatments for the price of one!  Bring a friend, or get your second treatment for free!

Look forward to meeting you in class, or on the treatment table!
