Dedicated to improving the consciousness of ALL people, Chris Shelton’s motto has always been, “If I can do it, YOU can too!”
Chris has dedicated his life to boosting health, happiness and healing-transformations.
Over 30 years ago, Qigong, an ancient holistic health modality that combines traditional Chinese medicine with movement, breath and visualization, saved his life.
Chris’ belief in the healing powers of Qigong is rooted in first-hand experience. As a teenager he suffered from a devastating back injury that left him in constant pain and nearly crippled.
In a 10 year period, he went from not being able to walk to a martial-arts champion to a renowned healer.
Chris attributes his full recovery to Qigong, a holistic approach perfect for people who want non-invasive, affordable and empowering healthcare.
He’s helped thousands of people across the United States and around the world reclaim their health and enjoy life free from chronic pain. Chris has worked with Special Olympics teams, professional athletes, and celebrities looking for deeper meaning in their lives.
Chris’ work has appeared in newspapers and magazines and been featured on radio and television. He is the founder of Morning Crane Healing Arts Center in San Jose and Los Angeles, California, and the author of Qigong for Self-Refinement.
Parisa Shelton – Yogi, Qigong instructor and practitioner of the energy arts – has always been dedicated to spreading love and being of service to the world in whatever ways she can.
She was a manager for a high-tech semiconductor manufacturing company for 5 years and received a BA in environmental studies and now co-owns and operates Morning Crane Healing Arts Center in San Jose and Los Angeles. She completed the Qigong Teacher Training (QTT) years ago and co-runs The Qi Club with Chris, an online subscription platform that offers Qigong classes, inspiration, and profound results.
Parisa’s magnetic and funny personality allows her to make light of heavy situations, and relate to people from all walks of life. Parisa’s path to the healing arts began at UC Santa Cruz in 1999 when she was first introduced to Reiki. Since then she has been certified as a Pilates instructor and Qigong instructor, as well as received her California Massage Therapist certificate. Although she is not certified in yoga, Parisa has completed thousands of hours of self-study and class participation since she was first introduced to yoga in 2004.
In 2010, Parisa teamed up with her now husband and healer Chris Shelton. Together they embarked on a mission to blend ancient and modern healing modalities in ways that are practical, accessible and obtainable.
In 2016 they created Qigong Teacher Trainer.com. Focusing on the foundations and fundamentals of Qigong, Chinese Medicine and 5 Element Theory. This course gives you the tools to take care of yourself as well as those around you.
In 2020, The Qi Club was created in response to the global pandemic. The focus of The Qi Club is to empower members, to release fear and worry, and to access peace, joy and a renewed zest for Life.
