It All Starts When I Say Yes.

Spring Forest Qigong Masters answering a question - Why I become a healer.

Setting Yourself Apart

"Energetically, logistically and content-wise, I felt totally supported. It was wonderful to be amongst such an august class of colleagues! Healers with such a wide array of experience and wisdom in SFQ. The fact that we have an Ethics Manual and exam makes me feel so proud of being part of SFQ. I was overblown by the "finding your personal brand" section of the program, it was a wonderful soul-searching dive into one's own purpose and uniqueness as a healer. The teachers were fantastic and the added bonus of a complete package to support me in positioning myself as a SFQ Certified Healer was the cherry on top! "
- Hector Campero, SFQ Certified Healer

Certified Qigong Instructor Misa Tsuyoshi In this training I felt empowered by learning the practical "how to's" in both healing and business aspects. The biggest gift I would like to mention was the mental guidance that helped me to be a healer I am. The following are the couple of many wonderful words I received.

"You don't feel lonely anymore. You will not get lost. Activate the Unconditional Love. Help the community. Bring the message to the world. Wake people's masters within." (Master Lin)
"To be a better healer-Be yourself. Be YOU. Open your heart to YOURSELF. Discover the wisdom of your life. Use your unique gifts. Being open to unlimited. Letting go of the outcome.Your biggest challenge is the biggest value/gift." (Master Jaci)
"Live your life as a Qigong Practice."(Master Gadu)

A Healing Practice That Stands Out


The signature of Spring Forest Qigong is everyone is born a healer. As a certified Healer, you are empowering your clients and helping to awaken their healer within. Drawing your power from unconditional love, you are helping your clients heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually simultaneously. As you cultivate energy to support your client, you are also helping yourself heal.

Spring Forest Qigong is simple to practice, regardless of age or physical condition and it is a fully inclusive philosophy, with no restrictions to any religion or culture. Spring Forest Qigong is also complementary, by working alongside traditional western medicine.
