Lisa O’Shea is the originator of the Rising Lotus Medical Qigong. This healing form incorporates fluid spinal movements with visualization and breathing to clear out blockages and improve wellness. Lisa grew up with a very western attitude about science and medicine, since her parents and grandparents were physicians.

She was drawn to the fields of science and math, which led her to graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering in 1986. After getting certified in Reiki and Hypnotherapy in 1988, she decided to branch out and get a teaching degree. While going through the teachers certification program at Nazareth College in Rochester, NY, in order to reduce stress, she began taking a local Tai Chi Qigong class. To her surprise, after six months of practice, her asthma completely disappeared.

Lisa began to study Qigong and Traditional Chinese Medicine after that. In 1995 she became a Certified Qigong Therapist through the Chinese Healing Arts Center with Master Shih. She began her studies with Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming in Boston in 1997 and became the first person to received full Instructor Certification in Qigong at his school.  She also studied with Master Hong Liu in Los Angeles and got certified in Shiba Luohan Gong with Dr. Jay Dunbar at his Magic Tortoise Taijiquan School in Chapel Hill, NC. Since 1998, Lisa has been offering classes in Qigong, Taiji, Qi Healing, Meditation and Nutrition, as well as certification in Qigong Therapy through her Qigong Institute of Rochester.
