What is being offered at The Boston Healing Tao?     

Full_LogoBHT_TopAll the core tools you need to know for centering and balancing your life force energy or Chi, found within GrandMaster Mantak Chia’s Universal Healing Tao system. The Healing Tao practices involve sitting, standing and moving meditations that are derived from ancient Taoist and Buddhist techniques rooted in nature and are linked to Traditional Chinese Medicine. These techniques have been gathered and integrated into a coherent, easy to learn system for well-being. The techniques work directly with the life force, Chi or Qi. The aim of the Healing Tao is to restore the individual to a condition of harmony with the flow of the forces of nature. The Healing Tao is not a religion and does not require the belief in any set of deities or gods.

The Boston Healing Tao teaches these ancient and essential tools centering on your own ability to self-heal.  These practices require a willingness to take responsibility for one’s own health and wellness and asks you to be proactive in your own healing process. We also offer Medical Chi Kung techniques as is taught in clinics throughout Asia and exercises centering on developing Chi (or Qi), flow such as relaxation methods for centering, guiding Chi and techniques to emit Chi/energy to heal yourself and others.  To find out more call: 617-501-9118 or you may Join Our Mailing List by Clicking Here.
