In these difficult times, each of us takes up our path and our practices with the intention for healing and well being. But beyond your intentions, you want the practices to work. You want results. You want proof that these programs and practices deliver!
The system of Wisdom Healing Qigong is not only based on 5000 years of historical results, but is also the foundation of many other modalites such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Accupuncture, Energy Medicine, and Somatic Therapy.
Furthering the model of the Zhineng Qigong Center in China, Master Mingtong Gu has been conducting pilot studies since 2015 in several Retreats each year through his organization, The Chi Center. The findings are truly exceptional, and most notably for those suffering from chronic conditions:
94% reported improved well-being, and 89% reported “significant improvement”, which included depression and anxiety.
