Acupuncture Ulverston | Barbara Cushnie - Acupuncture & Qi Gong


Call: 07929851976



OUTDOOR QI GONG CLASSES are starting Wednesday 17th June. Following government guidelines Barb will be teaching socially distanced morning classes outside, in Ulverston, throughout the summer (weather permitting). ‘Daily Qi Gong has been a life saver for me during lockdown; bringing my mind and body back to a calm and balanced place. For me its like plugging myself back into life’s natural, joyful current’ (Barb). See below for more details.  


Qi Gong often combines slow and gentle movements, breathing and meditation. It can also sometimes be fast, fluid and energetic whilst at other times Qi Gong is simply about being at ease standing still.  Many Qi Gong movements have been developed by watching animals moving in their natural environment, or being still, with efficiency and power.

I’ve been studying and practicing Qi Gong for my own health and wellbeing for eight years with Raymond Towers of the UKTaiQi foundation. The mental and physical health benefits, for me, have been amazing. I love the feeling of aliveness, calm and ‘connection’ I get when I practice. It’s ongoing work in progress!’ (Barb)

Like Acupuncture, Qi Gong is an aspect of Traditional Medicine that sees our bodies as a connected whole; like a web. Over time, if the movements are done regularly, with a gentle focus of mind, the body can gradually learn to ‘let go’ and release tensions and knotts within ‘the web’, creating feelings of ease and vitality.

Barb offers 1-1 Qi Gong sessions where you will be given a Chinese Medical diagnosis and then teach you exercises specifically chosen to help your body. Alternatively you can come along to one of her classes or courses. See below for list of current courses.

Please don’t hesitate to call Barb for a chat on 07929 851976 if you you’d like more information.
