Hi there. I’m Molly Kubinski, L.Ac. (FABORM). I’m a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Minnesota, nationally board certified in acupuncture and Chinese herbology, and a fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine. I maintain a large fertility practice in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and I love my work.
Like so many careers, my journey to Chinese medicine and fertility work was a pretty twisty path until I heard my calling, and it was through my own Qigong practice that I was finally able to hear that calling. In addition to all of the letters and credentials, I am a teacher of Qigong Meditation. Why does this matter?
It seems like another life ago when I first started my Qigong practice- 15 years ago, to be exact. At the time, I was in complete darkness and pain. My back hurt all the time, and I was deeply depressed and angry. My life felt as if it had no meaning. Ironically, I was introduced to my Qigong teacher by the most toxic person I’ve ever known (which is another story completely), maybe it was his subconscious way of apologizing for all of the garbage he put me through. Regardless, I started practicing Qigong Meditation, and month over month, year over year, I saw my physical pain go away, and the veil of depression lifted. I became mentally and emotionally strong enough to see where I was getting in my own way, and my life evolved into something bright, beautiful, and worth living. And because Qigong is part of Chinese medicine, I chose to pursue my education as an acupuncturist.
When I began to realize, as still a student in acupuncture school, that I wanted to be a fertility specialist, I also knew right away that I wanted to share the power of Qigong Meditation with couples who were trying to conceive. There’s an emotional toll that infertility takes on you and having a meditation practice that helps make you stronger mentally can mean all the difference between having a life raft and feeling lost at sea.
So, I created FertiliQi, Qigong courses with a Chinese medicine fertility focus. Mindfulness can be such a powerful boost to your physical and emotional health, and I’m so excited to share this precious resource with the fertility community. I know this first step of your Qigong journey is going to be the start of something wonderful.
