What is Qi Food Therapy?
Energy & Food Therapy.
We are here to illuminate your overall mind-body-soul level health and "rebalance life energies."
Qi Food Therapy offers online learning, in-person events & sessions to support cultivating your Qi (energy, Chi or Prana).
Through our e-books, webinars, e-courses and certification course, you can better understand and rebalance health conditions, strengthen organs & energy systems, align your energy points, and discover new ways of approaching nutrition as energy.
Everything is Energy, everything contains and is made up of QI.
The 5 Elements?
We predominantly work through the framework of the 5 Elements, not just for the Food side of our offerings, but also woven into the various energy medicine & hands for healing courses, events & sessions.
5 Element theory is a very intelligent, logical and in-depth practice of holistic healthcare and sees all of the bodily functions as interconnected. It can be overwhelming for many people, so our goal is to present a simple practical introduction and offer recipes & health alignment practices you can incorporate into your life.
We share enjoyable & educational content to empower you to take your health into your own hands. All the Qi Food Therapy e-books and online courses are designed to work together alongside acupuncture, herbs, massage and other Chinese Medicine modalities, Western Naturopathic or bodywork treatments, and if you are a practitioner they are another tool you can add to your healing tool box or direct your clients to. We love the power & depth of "rebalancing life energies" through energy medicine.
What is Qi?
Qi (pronounced “chi” or “cheee”), blood and body fluids are the most important fundamental substances necessary for life. We are dedicated to building awareness of the many types of Qi in your life and how to create more flow, clearer pathways in your light/energetic body and maintaining energetic health. You can see the benefits through alignment practices, energy medicine modalities and energetic nutrition theory.
By understanding and balancing your Qi, or Vital or Life energy, you begin to experience the benefits of living more in harmony with your internal body constitution and external environmental conditions.
Thank you for being here & we look forward to supporting your journey!

Qi is the life force, energy or electricity that flows through all things. Everything in the universe derives from Qi, it is the foundation of space & time in our world. When Qi flows properly, all things are in harmony and function correctly; when Qi is blocked, stagnation and problems arise. Within the human body Qi flows through all the organs, cells, blood and meridians maintaining health and balance.
How you cultivate Qi, eat Qi, breathe Qi, exercise & move your Qi, even think & emotionally feel Qi, is all inter-connected and allows understanding of the various types of Qi/Energy that coexist inside us and outside us. It is the macro and micro view & innerstanding of life. Our fundamental guiding principle is based on the Universal law of balance and we use food therapy, functional & medicinal food and other energy healing therapies to get back to balance.
We want to inspire more people wake up the power of & nourishing their Qi. Physical, emotionally & spiritually.
I am an Energy Medicine practitioner, Wellness coach, TCM Food Therapist and author based in Australia & Asia. I also teach the Energetics of nutrition and Food Therapy in Yoga trainings and other workshops.
I spent over 16 years in Shanghai, 6 of which where I co-owned China’s first health food store & nutrition cooking studio, and previously owned a small health food café. My journey into understanding Qi began by studying and practicing TCM Food Therapy with my mentor Dr Zhang Yi Fei, and we co-authored a book about Healthy Smoothies and functional foods in 2014. We also hosted Dr Zhang’s TCM fundamentals, food therapy & meridian theory courses in China in 2016-2019.
I have an intuitive sense for cooking with seasonal varieties of vegetables, sea vegetables, natural foods, and applying 5 Element theory. I am passionate about teaching the Energetics of nutrition in relation to how food & cooking methods effect Qi, transform physical health, mood and emotional well-being.
In 2019 I published a second book “Chinese Superfoods,” in Chinese, which has sold over 7000 copies. Through the book I encourage new generations of food therapy enthusiasts to explore Asian traditional foods, cook with everyday ingredients & get into the kitchen.
Outside of the kitchen I love to practice Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Qigong & Meditation as part of holistic well-being, cultivating Qi and balancing emotional health. I also LOVE water and being in the ocean.
Other modalities I practice and offer:
- Spinal Energetics practitioner
