QI GONG: PRIVATE OR SMALL GROUP SESSIONS AVAILABLE

Qi Gong is often described as a “moving meditation” practice that improves one’s mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and mindfulness. There are hundreds of Qi Gong styles, forms, traditions and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”). At our clinic, we enjoy teaching the Golden Eight Series, as well as, the Six Organ/Healing Sounds Qi Gong. The Golden Eight is a simple and effective series of eight Qi Gong exercises that are easy to learn and deeply healing. Practitioners feel both invigorated and relaxed after flowing through this gentle series of postures. The Six Organ/Healing Sound Qi Gong helps tonify and heal different organ systems of the body from the Liver to the Lungs. This series is fun and invigorating as well. We hold these series of classes throughout the year at various locations.

 MASSAGE + CUPPING TREATMENTS

CUPPING

Cupping therapy has gained popularity in the U.S. thanks to the Olympics and Gwyneth Paltrow! While new to our culture this treatment has been practiced in China and other parts of the world for thousands of years.Cupping therapy reduces inflammation, clears toxicity, relaxes tense back and shoulder muscles, balances the digestive system and is widely used for asthma and other respiratory ailments.

What to Expect: Each treatment includes some light pressing on areas of the back, organic oil application and placement of several glass cups that create a vacuum effect on the back. The cups sometimes stay stationary and at other times are moved up and down the back. Total treatment time is approximately 25 minutes.

*Marks may show up for up to a week following treatment*

WHEN: CUPPING IS NO LONGER OFFERED AT HILLCREST COMMUNITY ACUPUNCTURE, BUT IS AVAILABLE AT OUR SISTER LOCATION IN MISSION VALLEY.

WHERE: 409 CAMINO DEL RIO SOUTH, SUITE 110, SAN DIEGO 92108

VISIT Qi Healing to book a cupping appointment.

COST: $40 PER SESSION

(Cupping Therapists are Sita White and Oscar Talamantes, Click here to see them cupping on Fox 5 San Diego)

MASSAGE

The massage style we offer at HCA is Tui-Na inspired. TUI-NA is a safe and effective Asian bodywork therapy, using oscillating and pressure techniques that increase circulation of qi and blood. This promotes healing and relieves pain. Passive joint movements are also used to restore joint function. Clients wear loose clothing and lay on a table while receiving treatment. This is a great way to get an affordable, relaxing massage and keep up with a healthy self-care routine. Like cupping, treatments are deeply healing and restorative!

WHEN: ONE SATURDAY A MONTH, CALL OR EMAIL TO FIND OUT NEXT DATES
WHERE: 1807 ROBINSON AVENUE, SUITE 205
COST: $25 FOR 20 MINUTES (MULTIPLE BLOCKS OF 20 MIN CAN BE BOOKED)
