By GARY CARL/for The Herald  —  There are five elements in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM):  Acupuncture, Acupressure, Herbs, Massage and Qi Gong.

There is a very active but small group in Oakridge engaged in the ancient Chinese practice of Qi Gong.  I visited with Sue Cathcart, the Qi Gong instructor here in Oakridge, to find out more about it.

Sue originally got interested in Qi Gong herself about 7 years ago while she and her husband, Eugene, were in Los Barriles, Mexico.  There, she fortuitously encountered a woman who was a Qi Gong instructor.  This chance meeting led to Sue delving more into Qi Gong, taking an 8 week class and eventually becoming an instructor herself.   Currently, Sue teaches an ongoing Qi Gong class to a small group of participants.  Qi Gong consists of gentle stretching movements designed to improve one’s health through movement.  It is an Eastern practice and as mentioned above is closely related to other forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Classes are currently available on a weekly basis (there is a nominal $10 charge).  For times and location, please contact   Sue Cathcart at [email protected] or send her a message at (530) 412-3836.
