It has always been my vision to provide extremely effective, private, safe, and affordable methods of healing for the Rogers Park community, and I would be honored to help you along your path to wellness.

About the Purple Cloud

Nisa and me with our Qigong instructor Michael Lomax (August 2015)

Established in 2012,  the healing principle at Purple Cloud is that our method is rooted in the ageless wisdom and medical pragmatism of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Then, through Masters Degree-level education, skill, intuition, and pure energy, we assist and empower your body’s own healing capabilities naturally and holistically.

We combine the science of Eight Principle Traditional Chinese Medicine with the highly energetic power of Esoteric Acupuncture, Reiki, and Chinese Clinical Qigong Energy Healing in order to give you the deepest healing experience for your mind and body.

Purple Cloud takes absolute pride in providing a private, safe space for all people who seek health, balance, inner peace, and happiness.
