Richard Shapiro

Has been studying health and exercise since mid 80’s. A Master’s degree in Sport Psychology led me into both the study of martial arts, qigong, meditation and healing. He began study of tai chi in 1999, Bagua zhang in 2000, and qigong and Taoist meditation in 2002. By 2005 he was also practicing Tuina massage.   He uses qigong and especially Bagua to develop the skills a healer needs to be exceptionally skilled and have a long happy career; great balanced chi, great sensitivity combined with effortless strength, and a personal awareness of how to upgrade the health of the body.  In the last decade he’s seen first-hand how burnout, compassion burnout and health issues cripple so many healers, and how many lack the foundational body to do the most to help their patients.
