From Costa Rica: Our Morning Qigong Instructor ~

Dr. Ruth Lopez  


Since 1994, Dr. Ruth Lopez resides in Costa Rica and is the founder and director of the healing center, Casa Harmony, where she practices holistic wellness therapies such as acupuncture, moxibustion, cups, nutrition, meditation, massage, counseling, aromatherapy, natural facial treatments, and other energy treatments.

She also performs wellness workshops and individual healing sessions at the Sugar Beach hotel in Potrero-Guanacaste.

“I consider the human being as a whole unity, and I am convinced about the existence of the healing energy that lives inside us. My life is the search of this power to self heal.”

With the knowledge, experience, and innate intuition, life graduated me as a healer, and for the last years, I developed my own techniques of meditation, and self healing, giving workshops on looking for physical, mental and emotional wellness for the people.

Qi-Gong is a specialized program to feel the energy, diagnosis and energy channels for balance, concentration and breathing, and to activate the healing power we all have inside through the qi gong exercises.

We so look forward to experiencing this modality with you!
