Instructor Bruce D. Montville


Instructor  Bruce D. Montville


Instructor Bruce D. Montville  initially developed an interest in mind/body forms through a Yang Style Tai-Chi Form  offered at UNH in 1982. He studied with John Economos  for 3 months. Under the tutorage of Mr. Economos Bruce learned the entire 103 move form and has been a practitioner ever since. Beginning in the year 2000, Bruce taught this form to Suffolk University Students in Inter-Faith workshops. He continued teaching there for four years while pursuing his degree in Business.

While at Suffolk, Instructor Bruce D. Montville learned of a 15 minute 12 Move Qigong form (shortened from a total of 64 moves) . The results which were incredible. Bruce began teaching this as well.
In 2006, at “All That Matters”, an  Holistic Health Center  in Wakefield, RI, Bruce  attained an Instructor Training Certificate”  for Tai Chi from the Arthritis Foundation. ( learn more on movement and the positive effects it has on arthritis.) Later in the same year he also completed Advanced Reiki Training in the Usui system of Reiki.

Continue to read the note below to understand the differences between Tai Chi and QiGong. Read the notes below to understand how Instructor Bruce D. Montville’s Reiki training adds to the QiGong experience.

Tai Chi- there are hundreds of forms of QiGong and 5 major schools of Tai Chi.
There are five branches of QiGong in China.  Both use slow, flowing , fluid movements. The Chi (energy) in Tai Chi can be translated to ‘ultimate’, where as the chi ( Qi, energy) in QiGong can be directly translated as ‘energy‘.

Tai Chi is a martial art, where as QiGong is purely for healing. They are as different as dance styles within dance, ballet vs ballroom. QiGong has  techniques which involve shaking, jumping up and down, vibrating, shouting, alternating speed with staying dead still.

Qigong also often separates specific chi functions into separate movements or differ­ent forms. For example, while doing a qigong form, during one move you might direct energy through a specific acupuncture meridian (the lung or heart meridian for example), and in the next move you might direct energy through a different meridian. In Tai Chi one does not separate energy in this way.

Reiki complements the energy one feels in QiGong. In QiGong one gets into positions, holds and relates to the energy in the space created by the position. Then add the Reiki energy to focus on the specific type of healing energy. One can allow the Reiki energy to enter and cleanse the body (mind).
