Lineage Medicine

An Introduction

Lineage Medicine™ is derived from 5,000 years of ancient practices including Tai chi, Yoga, and Qigong. Dedicated to informing medical science, this discipline emphasizes spinal realignment, breath expansion, the power of intentionality, and the prioritization of Yin. True essence is grounded in the Power of Yin, our cycle of rest, renewal, play, and connection. Our evidence-based work bridges the divide between self-awareness, emotional regulation, fearless expression, and chi flow. Lineage Medicine™ releases stagnation, improving circulation, strengthening the mind, body, and spirit connection. The articulation of self promotes total wellbeing, catalyzing longevity.

Deepening the comprehension of the link between the gross and energetic body, this medicine provides the necessary components to solving the critical problems of loneliness, burnout, stress, anxiety and depression. This knowledge when applied to movement regenerates an individual's sense of agency, and power.

The Team

The heart of KALA Wellness, our team is dedicated to informing medical science and shifting the existing paradigm of medicine.

We are committed to introducing Lineage Medicine and its ability to gift agency of health back to individuals. We are fueled by the power of I.D.E.A.S., Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access, and Service. Our vision is healing and wholeness for the world.
