QiGong Qualifications

Zuzanna (Jikō)

what is qi gong?

My name is Zuzanna Grzywacz. I've been a practicing massage therapist since 2004. This is when I also began six years of study in Chinese martial arts (including Taiji Quan, I Liq Quan, and Qi Gong).

Having discovered that my healing skills were helpful to many of my fellow students experiencing muscle pain, joint pain, or any kind of tiredness and discomfort, I decided to deepen my knowledge, broaden the tools and learn more about classic and Chinese massage.

In 2010 I went to Japan to study under Master Shodo Harada where I practiced Zen for over a decade and received the name Jiko, which means "to cultivate compassion".

During my time in Japan I was introduced to ReiHo - ReiKi, an intuitive energy healing with an emphasis on the state of mind of the person giving, as well as the one receiving, a treatment. I studied with ReiHo Master Taeko Yamamuro for three years.
