My name is Bruce Boldon. I am an Acupuncturist and I teach the internal martial arts of Tai Ji Quan (T’ai Chi Ch’uan), Xin Yi Liu He Quan and Qi Gong (Chi Kung).

Acupuncture, Qi Gong and the internal martial arts are really just different aspects of the same thing. They are all built upon the same theories and they are each ways of improving our health and happiness through improving the balance and flow of our life energy. In Chinese this energy is known as Qi (pronounced “chee”).

I have been an Acupuncturist for 29 years (since 1988), and I have studied Tai Ji Quan since 1980. In 2004 I was fortunate enough to receive a personal introduction to two high level masters of internal martial arts. I moved to China and studied with these masters for three and a half years.

Health and happiness is the direct result of having good energy in a good balance that is flowing freely through us. Pain, illness and disease are the result of a lack of energy, or imbalance and blockages in its flow. So we naturally heal as those blockages are removed and the quality and balance of energy improve.

The high level knowledge of energy that came from a deep study of the internal martial arts improved my ability to get results with acupuncture immensely.

Qi Gong is any form of exercise (Gong) that focusses on the life energy (Qi) rather than the physical strength of the body. This same focus is found in Tai Ji Quan and Xin Yi Liu He Quan, so you could think of them as advanced forms of Qi Gong. The aim of these practices is to strengthen and become more aware of one’s own Qi. With practice you learn to strengthen the mind and consciously direct the flow of Qi. In this way each of these practices is a form of meditation. These are known as “internal arts” because they focus on these internal qualities of our life energy, mind and Spirit.

Acupuncture achieves the same goals of improving the strength, balance and flow of Qi. As your Acupuncturist I open and direct the flow of energy using the skills I have developed through Qi Gong and the internal martial arts. Many years of study and experience in the development of my own energy, and the ability to consciously direct the flow of Qi benefits my patients.
