Healing and Teaching
Robert offers individual healing sessions, private lessons and classes and workshops. Robertís healing sessions are based on the belief that deep within everyone is the ability to learn, grow, and heal. The healing sessions are generally done on a soft and comfortable massage table, utilizing gentle touch, focus and healing energy to help access this deep healing wisdom. A healing session is more than a method for pain release and problem solving, it is an opportunity for attaining more self-awareness and personal growth. It is a path to greater wisdom. Robert also prescribes gentle exercises for each client so they can get healthier more quickly and have more personal, specific control over their health.
As a teacher he likes to encourage and inspire, give personalized feedback and simplify concepts to get to the essential information. He also likes workshops to be fun: We all learn better when we are relaxed and comfortable with each other. He teaches classes and workshops in the topics of Self-Healing Qigong, Qigong Therapy (Medical Qigong), and Empowered Touch Cranial Sacral Therapy.
