Stephanie Holmes, is an experienced Qigong practitioner and she is is a nurse practitioner working at Midcoast Hospital.
Qigong is an ancient Chinese art that utilizes posture, breathing, and mind-intention to cultivate the vital energy of the body for the purpose of healing and maintaining health and vitality. A cornerstone of traditional Chinese Medicine, Qigong has been described as “acupuncture without the needles” and has been found beneficial for treating a wide spectrum of illnesses as well as strengthening the immune system and promoting resilience and longevity.
Many Qigong systems involve movement, but the movements can often be adapted to accommodate physical limitations. Most of our group practice will be movement oriented, learning and practicing one or more traditional practice sets.
