A bodyworker and visual artist living and working in Joshua Tree. He has been a certified massage therapist and bodyworker since 2003, specializing in acupressure, meditation, and Qi Gong. In both his massage practice and massage teaching he has found that Qi Gong offers a powerful way for clients and students to reconnect with their bodies and gain deeper self-awareness.
Doug’s form of Qi Gong is based on the five elements of traditional Chinese medicine and improves the flow of qi (or lifeforce energy) through the body, bringing physical and emotional balance. The classes combine simple flowing fun movements with breathwork and mindful meditation. Qi Gong is great for people of all ages, skill levels, and abilities. Students leave class feeling refreshed, energized, and in balance.
