A sound mind in a healthy body is the goal of most humans, though a fragmented mind in a titanium hive is what they'll get when the singularity rolls in. Stay balanced until then with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a Chi Kung detoxification and relaxation miniworkshop (a $112 value) from Aiki Healing on Bee Caves Road.
Chi Kung, or Qi Gong, is a more than 2,000-year-old subset of Chinese medicine. Based on a flowing series of movements similar to those of Tai Chi, it is adopted for a variety of healing purposes, including treatment of chronic pain, allergies, digestive imbalances, and more. Aiki Healing founder Kay Hutchinson has designed a detoxification miniworkshop specifically for Groupon customers. The class begins with Chi Kung exercises that are intended to purge bodies of toxins like deleting so many cat videos from the Internet, with an emphasis on stress reduction. The exercises are performed in a stationary position, making this Groupon suitable for all levels of experience. An energy-healing segment takes up the reigns of relaxation during the workshop, intended to reward peace-seekers for performing the Chi Kung movements. Participants will also learn the basics of self-help acupressure, a needle-free stimulation of different points on the body used to create a holistic sense of balance and to increase circulation.
Aiki Healing’s Kay Hutchinson puts her certification in acupressure and qi gong energy healing to use during body session that boost blood flow, revitalize skin, and incite mind and body relaxation. Enveloped in koi ponds, lotus gardens, and a forest of oak trees, Aiki Healing connects clients to nature immediately on arrival. The studio's live greenery invites the outdoors in, and Chinese herbal sessions and hand-mixed aromatherapy blends send sylvan tendrils throughout the body. Aiki Healing also works with John Fung, a third-generation herbalist who consults with clients about their healing regimens.
