Villari's Martial Arts Centers wants to HELP You Protect Yourself while Increasing Your Fitness Level!

In Qigong classes at Villari’s Martial Arts Centers in Somerville, MA you will learn simple movements and ways of breathing which will help to improve your health and wellbeing. Different exercises are designed to strengthen and improve the functions of different bodily systems. You will improve the health of your heart and lungs, central nervous system, gastrointestinal system, etc. Qigong can also help with anxiety, depression, stress and other mental and emotional ailments. In China, qigong is a medical profession and is used to treat many dis-eases. One of the concepts behind Qigong is energy follows thought. Where you send energy by thinking about it, or perhaps more accurately, picturing it, it goes. The simple movements you will learn will help it along, but the most important part is the intent. It is often done in three phases: purging (releasing stale or negative energy), Tonifying (building energy), and regulating (dispersing it to where in the body it needs to go). Most of these exercises can be done sitting or standing; some are meant to be done lying down. Some of what you will learn will be stand- alone exercises, and some will be routines best done in the order taught. Some of the routines will contain exercises that can be done by themselves. All of them will leave you feeling better that you did when you began.

P. S.

After doing yoga for 5-6 years, I wanted to try something new. After some googling, I stumbled on this convenient location, went in for a free trial class - and I've been coming here ever since. Master Brad is an amazing teacher, and he runs a fantastic operation for both children and adults. It is reasonably priced, especially in comparison to other studios in the area, and you definitely feel like you get your money's worth. The people that go here are open-minded and welcoming, regardless of your martial arts ability. The upper-level belts take the time to help out us lower-level folks. When I first started, all I really wanted was a good workout, and to learn to protect myself. In addition to getting that, there are also many psychological, emotional and personal benefits.You focus on mental growth in addition to physical growth. My confidence has shot through the roof in the past 8 months! To be fair, this is my only experience with a martial arts studio - but I don't want to go anywhere else.

Qigong Keeps The Mind Healthy

With Qigong you will improve your overall wellbeing including your mental health. Qigong calms your nerves, lowers levels of depression and helps with anxiety. You will love the guided meditations called “Soul Retrieval” that can help heal traumatic experiences. Qigong is about achieving balance in the physical, energetic, emotional and spiritual energies which will allow a more balanced life with fewer stresses, and less depression and anxiety. When emotional stress is not dealt with for a long period of time it can manifest as physical symptoms in the body and eventual, disease. Qigong can help resolve the stress and trauma before it gets to that.

Qigong Treats Disease

If there is disease in the body a certified Qigong Practitioner, Therapist, Master or Doctor can often use Chinese Energetic Medicine (Medical Qigong) to treat and often cure disease. Even cancer can be healed through treatments from a qualified, certified Medical Qigong Practitioner, Therapist, Master or Doctor. Master Brad Rogers is currently in training to become a Medical Qigong Practitioner.

Some of the exercises you will learn in Qigong classes are the same exercise that would be prescribed by a Medical Qigong Practitioner, Therapist, Master or Doctor after performing a treatment to help keep the diseased organ(s) balanced energetically which helps to fight the disease.

This is a GIFT that will last a lifetime through school, college and into the work world.
