Tai Chi & Chi Gong Teacher, Shiatsu Therapist, Herbalist & Body Awareness Coach  

I moved to Pittsburgh just recently with my wife who is pursuing her Phd at CMU.
I am 32 years old and graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with a degree in Chinese Medicine.

My approach to Holistic Treatment
We are born into this wonderful mysterious world as a soul inside a body; matter and spirit; both in wonderful  flow and harmony.
Over the years, we gain experiences throughout the world, both good and bad, that effect that initial flow. Then our living body surprises us with dis-ease and pain that we didn’t know before.
With curiosity, compassion and the healing powers of nature we can bring ourselves back into the state of health and balance; Only this time, with much more wisdom, more mature and closer to our true nature and present body.

Tai Chi 

My journey with Tai Chi, a non-violent martial art,  began in my first year of Chinese Medicine studies. It was a method for me to embody the theory I learned in class and bring it into real life experience.

Tai Qi for me is a way of being. How do we feel inside our body? How do we move and interact with others in our everyday lives?

Tai Qi has the potential to teach us new ways of being:  More open, relaxed, alert and present. But in the same way it builds  more power, boldness and resilience to be and to stand against the stressors of everyday lives. This way we can be more authentic  and have more influence on the world around us.

This is the true meaning of the Yin & Yang inside the Tai Chi.
I invite you for Tai Chi class or Chinese Medicine consultation at Mettā: A Healing Arts Community.
