Welcome to Sue Crites Holistic Healing & Qigong!
I’m a real person–just like you–learning how to navigate life. I share qigong as a tool and a practice to help you find balance, love yourself, expand your awareness of who you are as an energetic being, and to help you connect to an infinite source of love, joy, happiness, and peace.
Qigong helped me find health, vitality, and pain-free living. But in the process, I was amazed to find myself experiencing more happiness and self-acceptance, less judgement, and improved relationships. I was connecting to my true essence as my physical, emotional, and spiritual blocks transformed!
You’re capable and powerful and I’d love to show you how to connect to your limitless potential!
Qigong is a moving meditation that originated in ancient China over 5,000 years ago. We are energy beings and have within us energy channels or meridians in which our life force energy flows.
We are healthy and happy when our energy flows smoothly.
Sometimes we get blockages when the energy gets stuck. A blockage can lead to a physical symptom such as pain or illness, or an emotional symptom such as fear or anxiety. Blockages can be caused by challenging emotions (stress, trauma, worry, anxiety, regret, etc.), weather, food, environment, medications, or injuries.
Through gentle movements, specific breathing techniques, and mental focus, we can remove the blocks and restore the smooth flow of energy in our bodies and in our lives. It’s gentle, accessible to everyone, and easy to learn!
What would it be like to have more energy? How would it feel to be happy and content with your life? Having balanced, smoothly flowing energy is the key to experiencing and maintaining health and happiness. The moving meditation practice of Spring Forest Qigong removes blockages, opens up your heart, reduces pain and stress, and balances your energy while improving your mental outlook. This powerful practice balances and connects the body, mind, and spirit. I encourage you to experience this transformational practice with me. It has changed my life!

“I was looking to gain more balance in my life and I wanted to add meditation to my routine. After weekly meditation instruction sessions with Sue, and learning all about the Qigong practice, I can honestly say that this is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. The sessions with Sue were enlightening and I learned SO much more than I expected. I absolutely loved working with her. I especially loved how Sue taught me specific practices to add to my meditation based on issues I was experiencing in my life. I highly recommend working with Sue. My entire experience was absolutely incredible, and the best part is that I have learned a tool I can use for life! Thanks Sue!”
“When Sue does her Energy Healing on me, I feel like a brand new woman! I can feel her removing blockages like she is opening doors to let the energy flow; like she is encouraging my body and its energy to do exactly what it was intended to do. I don’t need to understand how it’s happening: it simply feels fantastic!”
“I came to see Sue because I was anxious and defeated by the return of a progressive medical condition. Over the course of six sessions, my anxiety and helplessness diminished. Sue never overwhelmed me and I could feel significant improvements each week. I felt positive and confident after each session! I now have more energy and experience more happiness, joy, and contentment. I cannot express my gratitude enough! I highly recommend working with Sue.”
