About Roger Cloutier

LICENSED MASSAGE PRACTITIONER (22 years)

TAI JI / QIGONG PRACTITIONER / INSTRUCTOR (35 years)

In my bodywork practice and Taiji classes, I get to work with all kinds of people, from all walks of life, from the very old to very young. I have been able to see what kinds of postures, attitudes, and ways of moving produce pain eventually. So I try to help get people off the path to pain and suffering.

Taiji and Qigong came from the principles of traditional life.

Home: Who are you? Are you connected to everyone and everything? Or are you separate? Your attitudes about life shape the body.

Farm: Principles of hard work. Having good stamina. How you work and how you feel about your work also shape the body.

This also translates out into all other fields of interest like marital arts, dance arts, music arts, creating art objects etc. So how you do what you do is what I try to work with first and foremost. What you do all day is your form (like a Taiji form) it forms your body and soul.
