Deborah 'Mei Ling' Marcantoni holds a BA from the University of Northern Colorado, and her post-graduate studies have been in the fields of Nursing, Nutrition, Exercise Physiology and Health Sciences. She has studied Energetic Medicine and Medical Qigong since 1998, with doctors and nurses in both China and the U.S.
Since 1991, she has earned certifications as a Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer, Nutrition Specialist, and Yoga Instructor, and she used these disciplines in the Fitness Industry for decades. She now utilizes that past training to keep her self fit, and her students safe in their Qigong and Tai Chi classes.
Mei Ling trained in China in 1999 under the direction of the World Academic Society of Medical Qigong and earned her Masters in Qigong Healing with an International Qigong Healing school. She has been a professional member of the Healing Touch Program since 1998, which is endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Association.
In 1997, she was diagnosed with the first stages of cervical cancer. Western medicine removed the cancer cells, yet she knew it was up to her to heal all aspects of herself to insure she would not return to that state of 'dis-ease'. Her life training and life experiences have shown her the wisdom of taking the holistic approach to health and healing, for when the physical body and the energy body are strong and balanced then deep and continuous healing comes to body, mind, and spirit.
Mei Ling offers classes in Pierce and Kitsap Counties and has a clinical practice in both Gig Harbor and Silverdale. Over the years her ability to communicate with animals, angels and guides has brought a deep satisfaction to her work.
