QI is the Chinese word for “life energy”. Pronounced chee-kung.

Qigong is a 3,000 year old, mind/body system. It is made up of gentle, balanced movement, breath regulation, and concentration/imagination practices. It is a great complement to modern, West mind medicine.

Mind/Body relaxation through the practice of Qigong reduces our stress and enables us to 

Feel Qi, Get Qi, and Use Qi

Qigong practice opens our natural potentials to heal ourselves, to know health, to prevent disease, to generate vitality, and to help others heal.

Qigong practice is easy and effective.

Here are some Benefits of Qigong:

  • Improved Posture and Relaxation
  • Induces Relaxation Response
  • Causes favorable change in blood chemistry
  • Improved self-awareness and concentration

    • Asthma
    • Arthritis
    • Cancer
    • Cardiovascular Disease

Studying under Qigong Masters Frankie Hart and Gregory Hicks, in 2007, Dr. Pearson was introduced to the “Inner Dan Arts” Qigong system developed by Qigong Grandmaster Tianyou Hao for the Western practitioner. This course was the first to be taught in the Medical School of Case Western Reserve University.


Medical Qigong is not a replacement of care from a certified medical doctor. Qigong is safe and adaptable, you should always consult with your physician before starting any new exercise, complementary/alternative medicine practice. Medical Qigong has scientifically been shown to be a safe addition to Western Medical treatment.

“Completing Freddie’s Embodied Anatomy Workshop was such an invaluable springboard into my certification training to be a Pilates Instructor. Not coming from a dance or movement background, I was a complete novice to a lot of the structures (bones, muscles, fascia) of the body.  Freddie is a patient, adaptable and thorough teacher who very much cares that you understand what you are learning and feel confident translating that information into your practice/teaching. A great class, do it!”
Tiffany May, Certified Pilates Trainer
