Hi I'm Chantal,

Like you, I used to experience physical pain, multiple digestive problems, extreme fatigue, insomnia, migraine, anxiety and even depression.  I have struggled and lived on painkillers and anti-depression pills for years.   Life had no sense. I was stuck within my condition and was suffering a lot.


To help me find meaning in my life, feel better, and resolve my physical problems, I tried different things with few or no results.  Some practices were helpful at times to reduce the pain and helped recharge my internal batteries to keep going, but the results never lasted long. 


But now I live a life free of medicine.  I live a life without or with little physical pain.  I live a life where I experience every day a global sense of well-being and balanced mental health. And when life throws difficult things at me (yes, it still happens!!) I now have the ability to respond to it and stay grounded in the face of the challenges.

Through my journey with Qigong, I learned how to live out of protection mode, and how to be fully authentic so that I could thrive and finally be myself.  I came to understand the underlying rejuvenating process that allowed me to come back to life and heal.  When I put all the pieces together I created Mindful Essence and the SLOW UP framework emerged.  And, this is what I invite you to do: SLOW UP!


Unleash Your Potential

Qi, the vital force that connects and fills all things is inherent in the living human body,

and the human body is sustained by Qi.

The study and practice of Qigong are meant for cultivating and maintaining the vital energy, the Qi within our body. The principles of Qigong are known to be about 5 000 years old. With a long rich history spanning thousands

of years, Qigong evolved in many forms.


At Mindful Essence, we teach and practice medical Qigong to lead you on the path of transformation and help you gain life-sustaining change.  We blend our understanding of Chinese Medicine wisdom with modern science and practical applications to support you in your discovery of your ability to heal yourself.  


We inspire and support you to overcome suffering and help you

Embody who you truly are, Embrace your Essence & Unleash your Potential.


ME offers preventative and restorative practices and modalities

to foster the use of these inborn powers in each one of us.
