About Beth Edgell

Energywork has for many years been a source of joy and fascination for me.  I was introduced to Traditional Chinese Medicine when I began practising Qigong in 2006.  Shiatsu followed, taking me on a journey into working deeply and experientially with the Five Elements.  I discovered a map with which I could begin to make sense of patterns I saw and felt in my body and environment, and not only that, but a way to live in deeper harmony with Nature. 

I qualified as a professional Shiatsu practitioner in 2011, with the Shiatsu College Brighton.  I ran the Zen Shiatsu Practice in Brighton for five years and worked in several community venues offering accessible, low cost treatments as well as being a practitioner at the Brighton Shiatsu Centre.   I also worked with Active Lightworks, a charity organisation offering holistic therapy in hospitals and to the elderly.

In 2014 I travelled to China to further my studies in Taoist Medicine with Master Li Song Feng (Li Sifu), at Five Immortals Temple in the mythical Wudang mountains.  Here I studied energetic healing, Qigong, Tai-chi, herbology, massage and other Chinese medical techniques.

I am a qualified associate Taoist arts instructor, with Mantak Chia’s Healing Tao system, and dedicated Qigong and Neigong* meditation practitioner since 2006.  Through this practice, I bring an experiential understanding of the body’s energy system to my work.

I have meditated and practised yoga since my early twenties and have studied somatic movement and experiential anatomy with the Inner Yoga Trust and School of Body Mind Centring. This added depth to my Qigong studies, and confirmed how structure and alignment is related to wellness and how to facilitate others to move comfortably and naturally.

Recently I have trained in VortexHealing.  This ancient mode of energy healing has recently re-emerged in our timeline.  It works to improve all aspects of the body’s incredibly complex energy system resulting in better health.  It assists in releasing conditioning and moving the receiver towards awakening.  I am so delighted to be able to offer Vortex sessions to faciliate healing in others.

I am passionate about helping people understand their bodies better both on a physical and deeper, energetic level for personal transformation and the healing of our planet.  Having experienced the pain of chronic illness I am a grounded, compassionate witness to your process, offering you a depth of perspective rooted in the ground of Oriental medicine and the light of Spirit.

* Neigong means ‘inner-skill’. It is a process of connecting with, feeling and adjusting the energy body using consciousness, leading to real embodied transformation.

I wanted to let you know that your way of working is a stunningly beautiful/powerful experience…essentially, on some sort of energetic level I can ‘feel’ you….a ‘space’ so vast and loving that i could weep (joyfully), it seems to launch/propel me further into deep stillness, and yet more peace.  RH
