Best known for her seventeen years of work with the Beauty Night Society, which earned her a special place in the hearts of viewers of the Marilyn Denis Show, Caroline Macgillivray is now making her mark at Elevate Life Wellness Centre with her special brand of Qigong healing and therapy.
Caroline is a Medical Qigong therapist with seventeen years of experience of wellness and health promotions for marginalized populations. Caroline was gifted a scholarship to train as a medical Qigong practitioner and therapist at the Empty Mountain Institute in Vancouver, BC and in November 2016, Caroline completed her Masters in Medical Qigong.
Through the use of both calming and invigorating repetitive exercises, breathing, and music, Caroline has created a specialized program for those suffering from addiction and trauma, and brings her knowledge and passion for Qigong to our clients once a week at Elevate Life Wellness.
Medical Qigong is an ancient form of Chinese energetic medicine, and is one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), along with acupuncture, herbal medicine, and medical massage. As with the other “Branches” of TCM, healing occurs through balancing qi or electromagnetic energy which surrounds and pervades all living creatures.
Disruptions in the electromagnetic energy of the body occur throughout our lifetime as a result of poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, injuries, surgery, suppression of emotions, and aging. The goal of Qigong is to correct these bio-energetic imbalances and blockages. This enables the body to strengthen and regulate the internal organs, the nervous system and the immune system, relieve pain, regulate hormones, and strengthen and release deep-seated emotions and stress.
Please help us welcome Caroline to the Elevate and Together We Can family!
