Catherine has been involved in the Daoist Healing Arts since 1999. Originally trained by a Daoist Priest, Catherine continued her Qigong study with various Masters in the field, becoming a Master Teacher herself in 2012.
Since 2005, Catherine has applied the spiritual understandings of Classical Chinese Medicine to harmonize the body-mind-spirit using Medical Qigong in conjunction with Acupuncture, Herbs, and other Daoist traditions. As a Master Healer, she is known for effectively treating the emotional interplay and spiritual roots of illness to promote fast healing of chronic conditions, including emotional, auto-immune, and other enduring ailments.
With a desire to teach others the same skills she has come to value in her own professional healing work, Catherine founded Laughing Buddha Institute in 2015.
