Tracey Bigelow – I’ve been involved in energy healing since early 2000. My background prior to studying with Yuan Qigong and Ren Xue was in Reiki and animal healing work. My main emphasis in teaching or working with people, animals, or situations is that love and a lightness of being are powerful and necessary qualities in generating an ability to heal. I’m also very interested in helping people stretch the boundaries of what they believe to be true. Tracey is a certified teacher of Ren Xue and Yuan Qigong through Ren Xue International.
