La Vie est Qi is an acupuncture clinic located in Lasalle, Montreal, Quebec. em>
Life is "Qi", also written Chi / Ki / T'chi, is the basic unit of Oriental traditional medicine. Some describe it as a breath, a potential, an energy, a vital force invisible but present everywhere and always, as high in the sky as inside our neurons.
From this concept, we have practices of Qigong and Taichi, types of soft and slow exercises that improve health by promoting the good circulation of this "Qi".
The traditional character of "Qi" demonstrates in him the complementary duality of Yin and Yang, two principles that must be balanced in order to obtain a good health both mental and physical.
The acupuncturist is then perceived as a gardener who watches over the inner landscapes of his patients. Is there enough sun, earth, water, minerals? Em>
If the water does not go to the garden, is the faucet is open, is there water leakage, is the spray gun running, is there a knot in the garden hose?
The acupuncturist inspects, questions, listens, smells and feels in order to get a global and fair idea of the aspects to work.

Sweet and attentive, Maleesa wants to accompany each patient to an optimal state of well-being by actively involving them in their own health. The desire to understand the human psyche led her to complete a bachelor's degree in psychology during which she attended external training in active listening, mental health and psychiatry. She then worked for 5 years in the community field and realized several volunteer projects locally and internationally (South Africa - 2009, Laos 2017).
Being the daughter of laotian refugees who had fled war and persecution, she became interested in acupuncture practiced by a family friend since only this therapeutic art managed to cure the ills of her parents. She later learned that traditional medicine was once used by her grandparents (cupping, saunas, medicinal herbs).
Beyond the interest in the practice of acupuncture, Maleesa is interested in cooking, cultural traditions and human rights.
