To date I have had two sessions of Qigong
healing and acupuncture with Dr.
Owen Liao. I met him about 3 months ago when two of my friends and I decided
to take up Tai-Chi for our health and
flexibility. One of my friends is quite a thorough researcher and brought us
many options for Tai Chi instructions but advising us after her initial
conversation with Dr. Liao to go with him. And the journey began.
After about 4 classes of
Tai-Chi spread out over a few months of hectic
travel I inquired about Dr Liao's healing services. I am the classic type
"A" personality - always on the go, more projects than you can
imagine, a highly demanding job, a family, and ongoing volunteer activities. And
I will never see 50 in this lifetime again. I have been chronically overweight
since childhood going through every diet and pills you could line up and still I
have a serious amount of weight to lose (approximately) 90 lbs. I also suffer
from chronic allergies and a few years ago a doctor said I had asthma.
So amidst my chaotic lifestyle, I decided to add a visit or two to Dr. Liao.
My first visit was just August 28th during the energy session, I had the
experience of feeling my drive for perfection leave - in fact it was a bit
humorous when I realized that my whole life I had been chasing perfection and it
just lifted as I had an inner smile. That day I was so calm so completely calm
that it was almost dream like but I worked and found that hunger was not great.
My lungs felt completely clear.
Of course, this is not a miracle so Tuesday I was a bit more stuffed and by
Wednesday I experienced some of my anxiety eating.
Thursday, August 31, was my second experience. During the energy work I felt
that my stomach and other fat appendages were very old and ready to fall off and
by the time I was in acupuncture I had this sense of being fully connected both
mind and body. Of course my lungs felt clear. This time I was calm but I could
focus on each task in time rather than experiencing anxiety about what had to be
done and what needed to be done next.
Even the fact that it is 6:30 p.m. on the day of the treatment and that after
a full day of work I was able to sit down and write this experience is unlike my
distracted self. In fact I find writing quite intimidating.
I am looking forward to returning next Thursday. One of the key differences I
think about Dr. Liao is that he is interested in ultimately your healing
yourself as opposed to gaining dependency on him.
