Long time listeners will recall that Michael Mayer, Ph.D. was my guest on Show #41, speaking with us about Bodymind Healing with Qiqong. Michael Mayer, Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist, hypnotherapist and a Qigong/Tai Chi teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Michael specializes in giving his patients self-healing methods for physical and mental health problems. He says he may have been the first person in the U.S. to train doctoral level psychology students in the integration of Qigong and Psychotherapy. He has authored 11 publications on bodymind healing, including books, audio tapes and journal articles. He also founded one of the first complimentary-medicine clinics in this country. I’ve known Michael since his student days and not long ago I had a chance to attend an impressive day-long seminar that Michael taught on his integrative bodymind approach. I’m also in the process of reading his most recent book, which is both scholarly and extremely practical. The title is Bodymind Healing Psychotherapy: Ancient Pathways to Modern Health.
