Transform stress into vitality with Inner Alchemy Qigong!
Matthew has a very calming aura, which helped me to really connect in the sessions. I always went in feeling stressed about something and came out feeling pure joy!

A healing energy practice: meditation, movement and breath for deep relaxation and spiritual cultivation
Founded by Grandmaster Mantak Chia, the Universal Healing Tao system is rooted in the ancient healing traditions of Taoism from China. Transforming stress into life force, cultivating sexual vitality, inviting greater love, joy and peace, emotional and physical healing can be expected on the path of the Tao!
I am an Associate Instructor with the Universal Healing Tao (UHT profile here), joining a community of over 2500 instructors in 57 countries. I have attended over 250 workshop hours with Master Chia himself.
The beauty of these simple, efficient energy practices is that they can be integrated into an everyday routine. Sitting on a chair, standing or lying down, you don't need a large space or super flexibility to start out.
Becoming aware of the emotional pain energy in your body is a prerequisite for transmuting it into radiant health, and this can be a constant practice! Notice what triggers this pain and relax into it. This "Inner Alchemy" Qigong is about the magic that goes on inside, so outer movements without the inner process would only be good exercise, nothing more. Become a master of inner-attention.
Where your attention goes, energy flows! (so use it wisely)
What I teach
I currently teach the following practices. Done regularly and with focus, you will noticeably feel healthier and more energetic in your life.
Inner Smile: core practice of all Taoist meditation! Develop the essential ability to look, feel into and connect with the inner body. Send healing love to the organs, allowing them to function and communicate optimally.
Microcosmic Orbit: activate the proper flow of energy through the central channel running up the spine and down the front of the body. Important practice to allow healing chi to move freely to where it needs to, used also to nourish the whole body by circulating sexual energy in the healing love course.
Six Healing Sounds: release and recycle stuck emotional garbage into nutritious energy through gestures and specific sounds which resonate with the good vibrations of the organs.
Chi Self-Massage: rejuvenate your skin, activate acupressure points, bring relaxation to organs, abdominal, joints, muscles, tendons and bones.
Craniosacral Qigong: activate the pumping systems of the body with movement and breathing techniques to promote good circulation and distribution of chi, blood and spinal cord fluid.
Wisdom Qigong: awaken the healing light of the Tao. Meditations using inner light, colours, and inviting the intelligence of nature and the planets.
Stem Cell Activation Qigong: methods to replace sick/damaged cells. Includes hitting and self-massage techniques, organ detoxification, gland activation and skin and bone breathing.
Five Element Qigong: a moving meditation to create harmony in the five major organs, gathering abundance from Earth and blessing from Heaven. Tonify the organs.
