About QiEnergyCoach

Everything in the Universe is energy. Energy is not good or bad, but too much or too little energy can lead to blockages in the body which over time can cause discomfort, pain, sickness, and eventually chronic illness. The good news is that although energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can be transformed, and with regular qigong practice balance can be restored to your body. 

Qigong (Qi = energy and Gong = work, or cultivation) practices have been developed over thousands of years as part of traditional Chinese medicine with the specific goal of working with the Qi energy  to enable the body to heal itself.  Qigong Master Chunyi Lin, who is the founder of Spring Forest Qigong, tells us that the Qi is a very special form of energy – it is energy with intelligence and consciousness.  The Qi energy has the power to create and restore because it is the energy of the life force, the energy of the original life blueprint.

Our goal at is to help guide you to open your energy channels and remove any energy blockages so you can heal faster and more completely. Thousands of Spring Forest Qigong practitioners around the world can testify to the effectiveness of regular qigong practice in improving your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being – all with no dangerous side effects!

The mission of is to help you Balance, Heal, and Grow:

  • Balancing – remove energy blockages, restore the flow of Qi energy in your body

  • Healing – heal faster and more completely. Healing on multiple levels: physical, emotional, and spiritual

  • Growing – increase your energy, live aligned with your life purpose, experience personal growth in all areas of your life: physical, mental, spiritual, vocational, financial, familial, and social
