Hwal Gong is a massage theory and technique from the Korean tradition of healing arts with its principles dating back 10,000 years. Today we use these ancient principles as the basis of Hwal Gong therapy. Its purpose is to balance the body, mind and spirit through the use of Ki energy (Qi, Chi) along meridian channels in the body. By using specific massage techniques, pressure is applied to the acupressure points along the meridian channels which facilitate the flow of Ki energy. Restoring the proper flow of Ki energy enhances the body’s natural healing power and immune system.
Hwal Gong is a highly effective therapy used by professionals to improve circulation, and restore internal organ and musculoskeletal function. It also balances the brain waves to a relaxed, more functional state, as well as normalizing the nervous system. Much more than just a massage technique, Hwal Gong helps the therapist and client become sensitized to feeling and using Ki energy as a way of self healing.
