Qigong with Kobi
Qigong is a holistic system of self healing exercises and meditation, an ancient evolving practice that includes healing posture, movement, self massage, breathing techniques and meditation. Through these various methods Qi is accumulated stored in the body (ex: Oxygen), like filling a reservoir. Impure Qi or polluted Qi (ex: carbon dioxide - cause of disease if linger in the body) can be cleared and refined into pure healing Qi' - Kenneth S. Cohen, The Way of Qigong
Kobi Zanguri, RMT, R. Ac, would like to invite everyone to move your Qi! In his busy day-to-day practice, Kobi noticed that patients who practiced Qigong recovered faster, and developed the skills necessary to take charge of their own health. Adding Qigong to his own routine, Kobi knows the benefits first-hand and invites you to discover Qigong too!
