Helping the Chronically Stressed with Natural Relief & Self-Healing from Ancient China

☯ Talks | Workshops | Coaching

Inspirational and engaging, Keith Brewer shows anyone how to quickly lower their stress levels, without medication or special equipment. Stress-related illnesses account for over 90% of all doctors’ visits in America, resulting in sick days, lowered quality of life, and loss of productivity.

Keith shows how a special type of breathing combined with slow, gentle movements from the ancient Chinese meditational healing art of qigong (pronounced chee-gong) can lower stress and its negative reactions.

Thousands of years old and at one time a secret art reserved for royalty and elite warriors, these exercises are now being endorsed by Harvard Medical School and other top research institutions to relieve the mental and physical stresses of modern life.

By the time Keith was 10, all the specialists were in agreement: without an operation, the severity of his skeletal issues would put him in a wheelchair by the time he turned 13. The operation had only a 50% of success and an 80% chance of more pain. Keith looked for another solution.

Today, thanks to qigong and its martial counterpart, tai chi, Keith is a fully able martial arts and qigong instructor who continues to astonish doctors.

“Qigong and tai chi allow us to access the healing energy that is always all around us and available to anyone who is willing to learn and practice. Not only our minds, but our entire bodies, even our bones – no matter the age or condition – are in a constant state of change.”- Keith BrewerTai Chi & Qigong Expert

Keith now shows others a healthier approach to help relieve the serious stresses of modern life, both mentally and physically. Never one to “dumb things down,” he has a knack for conveying profound but important concepts in entertaining ways that anyone can understand.

Many attendees have experienced immediate benefits and continue these life-changing exercises at home on their own!

I have scoliosis that causes imbalance when standing and walking. The qigong is absolutely transformational! I can feel the difference after class, where my posture is more relaxed, relieving me of the strain and stress. It has really given me much more hope about my situation!
