PATRICIA (TRICIA) SUTLIVE RICHARDSON began working in health care in Savannah in the late 80’s as an RN in behavioral medicine. In the mid 90s, she began the study and practice of Qigong, initially with a Chinese master visiting Savannah on a one-year visa. This orientation led to further studies in complementary/Eastern medicine practices, including training in 2007 with Jon Kabat-Zinn MD, the founder of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts. In 2009, Patricia graduated from the Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy with a new focus in integrative medicine. In 2015, she was certified as teacher of Medical Qigong (C.M.Q.) through the Lotus Health Institute in Blacksburg, VA.
