Qi Arts is an inter-related group of Qi-energy practices, which include classical Chinese Medicine, Qigong & traditional TaiJi.
Collectively as one, these become the practice of Qigong Chinese Medicine (QCM).
Unlike acupuncture which inserts needles, and plant medicine which prescribes herbs, QCM does not enter the physical body.
Working outside skin, inside the electromagnetic Qi field, we lightly touch channels & hollows, which changes a person’s heart mind body condition.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a person’s heart mind body are formed by the yin yang 5 elements.
By changing the Qi field of the yinyang 5 elements, our mental, emotional & physical conditions change.
In Qigong Medicine, we apply these ancient Chinese Medical techniques, to treat modern-day symptoms, from their root cause.
In life-cultivation Qigong practices, we focus mind & breath into these channels, to heal ourselves, so that we may live a long & healthy life, in a flexibly strong body, with a sharply focused mind.
Practicing the TaiJi form then empties the mind, connecting our spirit to the greater universe.
What Is Qi Arts?
Merging TaiJi Qigong, from training in China & Australia, and Channel Therapy Acupuncture from training in Japan, Greg has crafted his own style of Qi Arts.
As workshops are Qi-energy work, practitioners of all modalities are welcome to join–whether you be a therapist treating others, or a practitioner training by yourself.
Using thin blunt copper/silver/gold rods, called Teishin in Japanese, or hands or just mind-focus, we electromagnetically connect with Qi in their channels. This, light yet focused, Oi-connection instantly changes the condition of a person’s heart, mind & body. We gauge this through the wrist pulse, and other physiological changes. A good pulse tells us our practice is working!
In Qigong self-cultivation, we breathe & posture ourselves through the Qi channels, especially through the 8 extraordinary spirit channels.
To compliment this internally focused healing work, we play TaiJi form, with an empty mind.
In acupuncture treatments (only), Greg also uses fine Japanese needles to gently ground these subtle spirit techniques into the physical body.

In treatments, we treat your yin yang 5 elements to heal your mental, emotional & physical symptoms from their root cause. After diagnosing your symptoms into a Chinese Medicine pattern, we initially treat using thin blunt copper & silver rods. These electromagnetically pierce Qi, not physical skin. Afterwards, very fine Japanese needles are lightly inserted, and the mug-wort herb is burnt over the skin, in a very relaxing & healing session.
