Qigong and energy healing are ancient practices that tap into the body’s vital energy, known as Qi (pronounced “chee”). Rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and influenced by Taoist philosophy, these practices aim to cultivate and balance the flow of energy within the body to promote health, well-being, and healing.

Qigong, which translates to “cultivating energy,” encompasses a variety of gentle movements, breathing techniques, and meditative practices. It focuses on cultivating and harmonizing Qi to enhance physical, mental, and spiritual health. By combining physical postures, mindful breathing, and mental focus, practitioners aim to promote the smooth flow of Qi throughout the body’s energy channels, or meridians.

Energy healing, on the other hand, encompasses a broader range of practices that work with the body’s subtle energy fields to promote healing. It includes modalities such as Reiki, acupuncture, and various forms of hands-on or hands-off healing techniques. Energy healers aim to channel and direct Qi to balance and restore the body’s energy system, addressing imbalances that may contribute to physical, emotional, or spiritual ailments.

Both qigong and energy healing operate on the premise that energy imbalances or blockages can lead to physical or emotional disharmony and illness. By working with Qi, practitioners believe they can activate the body’s innate healing abilities and support the natural flow of energy, facilitating self-healing and promoting overall well-being.

Benefits of Qigong and Energy Healing:

  1. Stress Reduction: Regular practice of qigong and energy healing techniques can help reduce stress, anxiety, and promote relaxation. By focusing on deep breathing, gentle movements, and calming the mind, these practices activate the body’s relaxation response, leading to a sense of calm and inner peace.
  2. Enhanced Energy and Vitality: Qigong and energy healing practices aim to increase and balance the body’s energy levels. By improving the flow of Qi, practitioners often report increased vitality, improved stamina, and a sense of overall well-being.
  3. Physical Healing: Both qigong and energy healing have been associated with pain relief and improved physical health. By restoring balance to the body’s energy system, these practices may support the healing process, boost the immune system, and promote overall physical health.
  4. Emotional and Mental Well-being: Qigong and energy healing can have a positive impact on mental and emotional health. These practices are known to calm the mind, reduce negative emotions, and promote clarity and emotional balance.
  5. Spiritual Connection: For many practitioners, qigong and energy healing offer a pathway to deepen their spiritual connection. By cultivating mindfulness, stillness, and a heightened awareness of Qi, individuals may experience a sense of inner peace, connectedness, and expanded consciousness.

It is important to note that qigong and energy healing should not replace conventional medical treatments but can be used as complementary practices to support overall well-being. If you are interested in exploring these practices, seek guidance from qualified instructors or energy healers who can provide proper instruction and support on your journey to harnessing the power of Qi.

About Master Sio’s QiGong Healing Sessions

Here’s a little background that could be helpful to you during our healing sessions.

The best results come if you have zero expectations, stop setting intentions, forget about mantras, forget about focusing on this and that. Some other healing traditions advocate those techniques and that is well and good with their healing philosophy. I respect all traditions.

Mine is different from others I’m aware of. I ask only that you surrender to what is.

This healing modality is so simple yet majestic, deep, pervasive, and intense in its ability to manifest positive changes on levels physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. The connection is direct to Source.

I do not need to interview you as a client because you’ll be doing the healing yourself. I merely lead you to a place of absolute calm and stillness where you realize and accept just how powerful you are – powerful enough to perform healing on yourself.

I do not teach healing at this time, mainly because the way I learned Hawaiian Kahuna Healing was by assimilation, not by manuals or any verbal or written curriculum. I initially gained unusual insights as a tiny youngster by sitting quietly at my paternal aunt’s feet and watching what she did. She healed people just by looking at them. Later I acquired more knowledge by living with indigenous healing masters in New Zealand, Tonga, Fiji, Tahiti, Australia, Rarotonga, Vanuatu, Kiribas, Samoa, and, most recently, in Hawaii in the high cool caves of the Big Island.

In Hawaii, I lived in total silence (no talking) for over six months with four powerful kahunas (native healers) in various caves and lava tubes. Life on the surface seemed punishingly ascetic but in reality, it was the most sacred and profound way for them to pass on their art to me. 

I learned from kahuna who were indigenous Hawaiians born locally with a lineage of traditional healing dating back to pre-Western contact. I earned their trust and respect incrementally over time and I feel most fortunate to have received the privilege of living with the masters and to learn by assimilation.

In the beginning, it was tough not being able to speak to the masters or to hear them even, but in time I was amazed to discover I could actually “converse” with them without verbalizing.

I’m often asked why I request that people keep their eyes closed while I work. It is to help them relax and be more open and receptive to shifting their energy into high gear. Keeping their eyes open would be like having them watch a movie while I try to do the healing. It won’t work, at least not as effectively.

I do not burn sage or incense or perform intricate “chop, scrape and toss” motions or rituals as some healing forms require. In my tradition, all that is totally unnecessary. One becomes a healer after attaining an extremely high vibration which can be transmitted through the eyes, the hands, or simply physical presence with absolutely no physical contact.

Quite often when I walk into a workshop that has not yet begun, several people start swaying, some hands and feet move involuntarily, a few start to feel their bodies swaying, and so on. Occasionally in a restaurant, a person at the next table would exhibit similar behavior. I do not “amp up” my vibration in such instances. It just happens.

Healing can be performed on a person thousands of miles away, and I have clients living as far away as Germany, Africa, New Zealand and many states in the US. A personal 1-on-1 healing is always the most powerful but it isn’t affordable for everyone. However, some dramatic healings do occur in the group sessions as well, sometimes more so than in private ones. Many factors come into play and I shall delve into those in another email.

My healing works with or without music.

There is also some common sense involved. I wouldn’t, for example, choose as a setting the middle of a battlefield or a freeway. I play some “white noise” because it helps shut out distracting traffic and other dissonance. I sometimes chant because in Hawaiian it is a chant of gratitude for what we have to enjoy and, besides, it’s the favorite chant of one of the masters I lived within the caves.

I hope these thoughts may be helpful in your healing experience.
