Sally Ibbotson Qigong Teacher and Shiatsu Practitioner

What is Qigong?

Qigong is a form of moving meditation similar to Tai Chi and far easier to learn. It works on the premise that we can gather energy (Qi – similar to Prana in the Yogis tradition) from the earth and environment by adopting a meditative attitude and moving in time-tested ways.  
The movements are sequential and repeated – usually 6 times.  They are simple and slow and full instruction will be given.
 It is possible to perform these sequences (known as Forms) sitting and it is highly suitable for those who are physically restricted in some way.
Qigong is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine – Acupuncture and Shiatsu are also part of this tradition.  The Forms are ancient and work with the energy pathways and acupoints (meridians and acupuncture points) in and around your bodies (No needles are involved!)
A Qigong retreat will usually include some Internal Qigong – similar to seated meditation and using the imagination to move Qi around the body.  We will also do Walking Forms, Sleepy time Qigong, digestive Qigong and a form of self-massage known as Do-In.

Sally Ibbotson Biography

I started my career in Complimentary Medicine in 1993, qualifying as a Massage Therapist with the Gerda Boysen Institute and as a Counsellor with the Centre for the Advancement in Counselling.  Seeking depth to my work and more of a spiritual dimension, I studied Shiatsu between the years of 1995 and 2001 and, on qualifying undertook post-graduate study which resulted in a Teacher qualification in Qigong. Qigong had been taught to undergraduate Shiatsu practitioners as a means to keeping our own energy intact whilst treating clients.

I have studied Qigong under many Teachers and  myself taught in the NHS.  Specifically,  I worked in the Therapies team at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in London for 6 years where I taught Qigong as part of our pain management programme. During this time. I studied and qualified with Mark Peters in Birmingham. Mark is responsible for creating a rehabilitation pathway within the NHS which includes Qigong on site and in the community.

In 2016, I moved into Palliative care at St Christopher’s Hospice in South London and set up weekly Qigong classes alongside my Shiatsu clinic there. These attracted both in-patients and out-patients.

Throughout the above history, I have been self-employed and running Shiatsu clinics and Qigong classes in the community. Before the Covid 19 pandemic,  I also ran an annual 4 day Qigong retreat at Gaunt’s House in Dorset and regular London Workshops.  I also offer Qigong and Shiatsu at the Breast Cancer Haven in Fulham, South East London and at Open Age classes who are funded to address social isolation in the over 50s..

I am a regular attendee of Programmes at the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland (and live in the Findorn area now) and as a result of this self and spiritual development, my current style of Qigong has changed somewhat. I teach from a passion for the Earth and all that she offers us. I incorporate integral imaging, affirmations alongside the traditional movements with the breath.
Internal Qigong as a way to stay healthy and tuned to the body is a part of most of my classes.
I specialise in personal qigong prescriptions and teach regular classes on line.
