Choose from cupping therapy to muscle soothing oils or lineaments.
Cupping Add-On Treatment: An ancient, adjunct or stand-alone treatment used in Chinese medicine. This modality is good for breaking up “stagnation of Qi and blood” in both the superficial and deeper tissues including the muscles, fascia and skin or dermal layer. Cupping helps to release toxins trapped in the tissues by breaking up bound and adhered fibers and increasing circulation to the surrounding tissues. Ask your practitioner about the benefits and any possible contraindications.
Sports Cremes, Tiger Balms, Herbal Lineaments or Oils: Used in traditional circles of the martial arts, known as “ditda” or hit medicine, these external applications are commonly used to treat injuries. These are good to treat acute or chronic conditions, or commonly used to assist soft-tissue recovery from workouts.

Instruction and coaching is available in the art and science of Wing Chun gongfu and the cultivation arts of Taiji, Qigong and Neigong practices. These ancient Chinese arts of cultivation and conditioning include the following:
Nei Gong is a term referencing the internal aspects of Qigong and Taiji. These are the ancient meditation practices used to regulate the flow of Qi and promote longevity and greater vitality of the body and mind.
Through Qigong, David provides instruction and postural assessment as he guides students through the subtle use of breathing techniques, gentle movement therapies, and developing specific intentions to help improve circulation, increase mobility, strengthen muscles, improve posture, and become proactive in their overall good health and wellness.
Daoyin is an older term for qigong and the two can be used interchangeably, however sometimes the term “Daoyin” is used to describe some of the more physical practices of qigong with focus on stretching tendons and ligaments, strengthening and conditioning ones structure and clearing blockages along the meridians or channels.
Taiji is a concept of application and Taiji Chuan is the actual form. Used for both martial arts and energy balancing, Taiji Chuan is like a moving qigong which provides lasting benefits for all ages and skill levels.
