About the Purple Cloud

Nisa and me with our QiGong Master Michael Lomax (August 2015)

The healing principle at Purple Cloud is that our method is rooted in Taoist, Buddhist, and Shamanic philosophy; transmitted to you through Masters Degree-level education, intuition, skill, and pure energy; and committed to you like a friend beside you on your journey.

We combine the science of Eight Principle Traditional Chinese Medicine with the spirituality of Esoteric Acupuncture and Chinese Shamanic Clinical QiGong Energy Healing in order to give you the full experience of assisting you to realize the harmony of your body, mind, and spirit.
