When I first came to see Vadim, I had a numb right leg and foot, pain in my lower back and was experiencing nightly leg cramps that kept me from getting a good night's sleep. After the first visit all of my symptoms were better and the numbness in my leg was completely gone. The sustained effect of three treatments which included cupping, scraping, Medicinall Qigong, is that my overall pain is gone, my energy level has increased, I am sleeping through the night and have been able to resume my regular workouts of hiking and jogging. I was also impressed by the care and concern that Vadim has shown me as a patient. He has followed up with me after each visit to be sure that I was feeling better and has helped me to examine the physical, spiritual and emotional issues that have caused the imbalances in my body.
The treatments that I received allowed me to avoid invasive medical tests and back surgery. I have experience with acupuncture treatments and Chinese herbal treatment. I believe that Medicinal Qigong and cupping treatments were the most powerful treatments I received to help me to restore my body to a more healthful condition
I can't say enough good things about my experience with Vadim. The treatments and results far exceeded any expectations. I am excited to recommend Vadim to my friends and family."
Receiving Medicinal Qigong treatments has changed the way I live my life. After beginning treatments earlier this year, I feel more conscience and aware. My feelings are fluid and I no longer feel agitation and anxiety in normal situations. Prior to my treatments with Vadim, I would characterize myself as afflicted, distracted, and hyper. Looking back I know that these emotions were the result of unhealthy relationships and choices. Medicinal Qigong has allowed me to let go of these memories and move on. My everyday emotions feel more superficial, while unfavorable situations do not affect my inner self. As a result I have experienced better control over my temper and remain focused during stressful situations. Other benefits that I have enjoyed include better eye sight, better joint health and relief from delayed onset muscle soreness. I always find myself looking forward to the next treatment because I have come to expect improvement and better homeostasis. Working with Vadim is amazing, he is intuitive and knowledgeable. I enjoy his confidence, bed side manor, and the attention given to every patient. Medicinal Qigong has been a positive and grounding experience in a fast paced city lifestyle.
For the last several months I have been receiving weekly instruction from Vadim in Qigong. After one session I was impressed by the caliber of instruction. He is extremely knowledgeable and is a born teacher/healer. During each session he accesses my needs and designs routines based on my personal goals for wellness. This daily practice of Qigong is increasing my awareness of the healing energy I possess and how to use it effectively to achieve balance in my body/mind. As a result, I feel in greater control of how I handle the many daily demands of my hectic schedule, as a wife, mother of two small children and a full-time student. Not to mention, the amazing improvement in my energy level.
My family and I have also witnessed the restorative effects of Medicinal Qigong. Vadim has lovingly treated my two children, who are 1 ½ years old and 7 years old. He has effectively treated us for a variety of health ailments ranging from the common cold to childhood asthma. To my amazement, in only one of two treatments, we were healthy again.
I began learning Medical Qigong in 2005. Since I found this practice so engaging, I wanted to learn more and discovered Chinese medicine. When I inquired for a practitioner, my instructor recommended Vadim and the treatment I experienced was very powerful. Vadim's style is also to teach you as much as you are prepared to learn about supporting health and advancing in Qigong, and thus in life. This process proves to me that it is important to receive guidance, so I feel privileged to benefit from Vadim's ever-increasing experience, knowledge, and caring ability. Most recently, I have tried distance Medical Qigong treatments with Vadim -- very amazing!
I received my first treatment with Vadim at a Medical Qigong Healing Clinic in Berkeley at AIMC (Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College). I had never had an experience with Medical Qigong, but I had much with Acupuncture.
I was surprised at the powerful response to the treatment. I went in expecting this to be like a watered down version of acupuncture, but let me tell you, this is not so.
After the treatment, I felt filled with a quality of peace and abundance that calmed me down and relaxed me for several days. My chief complaint had been insomnia, and I slept very deeply that night and the treatment allowed me to make an adjustment in my patterns so that I began to let go of the stress that I carried through to the end of the day.
While Vadim was working on me, I felt many of the energy channels, with which I am familiar from acupuncture, pulsing and moving with energy. This created a sense of vitality so that after the treatment I felt both deeply relaxed and energized.
Vadim who is a tall and strong man, does have a very grounding touch, but what I found both surprising and gratifying was the profound sense of nurturing I experienced while he was working on me. I am not used to receiving much nurturance from men and like most men I think I just forget to look for that. That touched me very deeply. I left the session with an inner sense of strength and quietude, and I attribute this to the transmission of both Yin and Yang energy that I received from him. To me this is the mark of a high level practitioner that can cultivate a balance within themselves of both the masculine and the feminine polarity.
In order for anyone to really be successful at healing through Qigong they need to cultivate and purify their own energy. Vadim teaches Qigong as well as practicing it as a healer. I have taken several classes with him and I am impressed with his commitment and knowledge in these areas. He has a long history of working with martial art masters, teachers and healers and this comes across as a man who practices the Medical Qigong healing art as a way of life and not only a livelihood.
I just had a session with Vadim and it was absolutely amazing. I've been having neck pain and headaches for month and he really did a great job to relive the pain. What I like the most and best about this man, he teaches you the special exercise and he really cares about your well being.
He is a great healer. Give him a try and see for yourself.
I am happy, he came into my life! Bless your hands Vadim, they are very healing!
I saw Vadim because I never had any energy and was tired all the time. It was hard for me to go to the store. I was that tired! After about 3 or 4 visits, my energy was much better. I didn't feel as tired and I was going to bed at midnight! It does take time to heal the body. Don't expect to get healed overnight. Vadim will offer you suggestions on what to eat according to your health conditions and herbs to take. He will also show you qi gong exercises for your specific conditions. He also teaches qi gong exercises and is a great instructor. He is a true healer. Vadim is a kind person and will help you with any health problem you have. Today, I was having some lung issues and he made sure I got some herbs today for my lungs. What a nice guy! You can tell he really cares. You will get better if you follow his advice.
This morning I was barely able to get out of bed as my back hurt so badly. Now I can touch my toes and move pain free. My traditional doctor had prescribed muscle relaxers which just spaced me out. The spa message left me in worse pain than when I went in, so I needed to try something different but I didn't really want acupuncture. Vadim offers alternative therapy in a safe environment.
When my back went out in October of this year, I knew I had to go back to see Vadim. He is an absolutely outstanding healer and extremely talented Chinese Medicine Practitioner. I was so messed up that I couldn't leave to see him the first day because I couldn't even walk to my bedroom door! When I did get in to see him a day or two later. He worked on my body with special care as I was in great pain from my back injury. After he worked on me I noticed amazing improvement right after the session even though he said it might be a day or so before I noticed any vast improvement. Vadim is very good at tailoring a Chinese Medicine Bodywork session for your individual needs and after that week that Vadim saw me, I was up and back to work the very next week! I wouldn't try anyone else knowing how skilled and talented Vadim Derevyanko is. For anyone who hasn't tried Chinese Medicine Bodywork for what ailes them, I say: what's stopping you? There's no time like the present to improve the quality of your body and your life! Healers like Vadim make this world a better place!
Thank you Vadim!
When my doctor said I would need major surgery, I started looking for someone who could come to my home to do medical qigong. I was told that Vadim was the strongest person available to help me find all the pieces of myself and put them back together in a healthy way. Vadim did more than this. He also helped me recognize when I was misusing my energy, effectively blocking the healing process, and he taught me points to massage that support both continued healing and long-term health. He is knowledgeable, skilled, warm, attentive, and professional, all the good things that we want our healthcare providers to be. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
I've been going to Vadim once a week for about 6 months for Medical Qigong (and acupuncture) at the AIMC clinic and I can't recommend him more highly. He is a powerful healer, very dedicated and very knowledgeable, and also a caring, delightful person. My particular issues (insomnia is one) have markedly improved over the course of my treatments with him, in conjunction with acupuncture, herbs, qigong exercise and the diet changes he recommended.
I also highly recommend his Qigong classes. He is an excellent teacher - extremely thorough, supportive, and again, clearly -- very knowledgeable. He really goes into the details of each movement so students learn everything the right way from the beginning and therefore get the best results.
A couple of years ago I underwent surgery for Diverticolosis. After my surgey I ended with more problems than I originaly had the surgery for. for an entire year I was going from doctor to doctor trying to figure out what was wrong with me. I could not eat or even drink liquids without my body rejecting it in one form or another. The doctors were no help, only prescribing drugs that made me feel worse and worse. At 27 years old I ended up not being able to work any longer, ending up on Disability. I felt worse and worse. Until I met Vadim. Vadim always gives me great suggestions on what to eat and excersises I can do to aid my diggestion. Not to metion the great herbs that he prescribes. After every session I feel great. Now my diet is great, my health is even better. He works around my schedule and always take the time.
I've been seeing Vadim for about three months now for my back and allergy issues. He's treated me with medical qigong, nutrition advice, herbs and cupping. He's also prescribed some qigong exercises for me to do at home. Back pain is no longer an issue, even though I still have the same demands as before (caring for two young children). I've stopped going to the chiropractor every month like I used to. Now we're focusing on healing my allergies and building my immune system. That will take more time, but I already feel less sensitive to the same allergens that used to trigger an attack. I always have a sense of well-being after receiving medical qigong treatments - very relaxed, centered, open and peaceful. Sometimes I feel energized and sometimes tired, depending on how fatigued I am to begin with, but I always sleep soundly afterwards. After the first few sessions I also started to feel "lighter" and less anxious over things that used to stress me out. I also noticed that when I'm more diligent about doing my part (getting enough rest, keeping up the qigong exercises), then the benefits from each session last longer. It's definitely a joint effort and seems to work better when you take responsibility for your health. Fortunately, Vadim is very knowledgeable and makes the effort to explain how you can do that. I've tried different modalities and have had the best results so far with Vadim's treatments. He Is the "real deal" - definitely give him a try.
