Raphaela McCormack

Qi Gong is an ancient Chinese Healing Art. Qi Gong therapy helps you to increase the circulation of energy/ life force in your body. As you experience a treatment, you will feel better, you will have a sense of well being, feel grounded and centered. You will have more energy

My clients are amazing women and men.  They struggle with headaches, tension in shoulders and neck, anxiety, stress and worry. They have digestive issues, feel fatigued, can't remember when they had a really good night's sleep and have a general feeling of being overwhelmed from juggling their work and their private lives.  After just a few treatments, my clients feel much better physically and emotionally in their daily lives because they learn techniques and tools to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle.  Their stress and anxiety related to work and family life has greatly decreased, and they have more energy and take more time for themselves. Their fatigue decreases too, because they sleep better and they have a healthy appetite.  The Qi is flowing more smoothly through their bodies, giving them a feeling of well being  and balance.

Over the years, I have come to realize I can really help my clients to feel better and to learn to take care of their health.  This, of course, leads to more joy, harmony and peace in their lives. We need to feel healthy, motivated, energetic and powerful, so we can grow and thrive.

My practice is based on the Five Element theory in Chinese Medicine. I help the "Qi" or "Life Force" in the body to flow in a smooth healthy way through the meridians and organs, clearing out any blocked Qi.

Raphaela is a wonderful woman and exceptional in her field. She really takes the time to sit with you and get to the root of the issue so that each session is exactly what you need. I would highly recommend anyone to book a session with her.

Raphaela has such knowledge about Qi Gong and enjoys sharing it with others. I felt better after my first treatment and have learned a lot about what affects my body both internally and externally. I am also learning how to deal with and protect myself stress.

I've been struggling with a myriad of health problems (low energy, poor digestion, PCOS with fluctuating hormonal levels, and Raynaud's Syndrome just to name a few). Raphaela took the time to come in on a Sunday and do a Qi Gong treatment on me before I left town. She went through an exhaustive list of any potential health problems to really understand what is going on with my body. During the treatment, Raphaela made sure I was completely comfortable and explained what the movements she was performing would do to help with my many problems. The treatment itself was very relaxing and immediately improved my digestion (I heard my stomach rumbling the whole time!!). Afterwards I felt completely balanced and peaceful, I HIGHLY recommend coming in for a treatment. After she was done, she gave me several meditations and pressure points to work on in my own time to help with spleen, liver, and kidney function -- all of the personalized places that she found to be lacking. I plan to continue to use these and am so excited to see how much they help. Overall, I highly recommend coming in for an amazing, personal, and relaxing experience :).

Raphaela is a very gifted healer. Using Qi Gong therapy, she very effectively relieves aches and pains. She has also corrected sleep and digestive issues. After just a few minutes of Qi Gong therapy from Raphaela I begin to feel energy flowing freely through my body, and have a sense of well being and good health.
