As CEO of a digital marketing agency, I had a multitude of pressure points and stress from managing teams, dealing with clients and working through all kinds of challenges. Qigong helped me to feel balanced and centered. Although the stress and pressures continued to arrive at my door step, I was much better equipped to deal with these challenges.
