Zhineng Qigong

  What is Qigong compared to Zhineng Qigong?


“Qi” means life force, or breath of life, and “gong” means study or daily effort. Qigong is based upon the Chinese philosophy that a powerful energy system (qi) exists within the body and flows through known energy pathways referred to as meridians. Vital life energy is conveyed to every cell, muscle, organ and bodily system via these meridians. If the qi patterns are disrupted by emotional distress, environmental exposures, physical stresses, or any number of factors, a person becomes susceptible to disease. Health is restored when this disruption of energy or qi is rebalanced.

Grandmaster Pang He Ming, MD


Grandmaster Pang He Ming, M.D., is one of the pioneer grandmasters who opened the Qigong secrets to the general public. Dr. Pang, trained in both Eastern and Western medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine studied the various forms of Qigong throughout China before creating what he found to be the most easily learned and beneficial system of Qigong. Dr. Pang, founder of the Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Center, explored the human-body science - the new frontier of medicine. Over the years, the Center
treated” with daily Qigong practice more than 100,00 patients/students with 180 different diseases with an overall success rate of 95 percent.


Zhineng Qigong is designed to integrate the ancient science of qigong and the modern science of western medicine. Zhineng Qigong merges universal energy, or “qi” with human qi, transforming the dis-ease or disharmony into formless qi and then we use it to strengthen our life energy and change the function and organs of the body. Everyone is born with qi, or life energy, but the skill to use qi requires training. In practicing Zhineng Qigong we constantly exchange nature’s qi with our own qi via our pores and pressure points along our energetic system. Through our Zhineng Qigong practice we amplify this natural exchange by directing our thoughts outward to encompass nature’s healing qi from the universe, then inward, back inside the cells deep within our bodies. Combined with our intention, one gently opens the power of the mind and heart to induce well-being nurture good health and balance our physical end energetic systems inviting joy into our lives while gently balancing the entire body, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.



Zhineng Qigong consists of an easy flowing series of gentle movements combined with “intention” to quietly open the heart and mind bringing each person into balance with nature. Zhineng Qigong embraces daily practice to overcome unhealthy mental and physical habits, naturally inviting joy into our lives. Zhineng Qigong can be easily learned by anyone who chooses to improve and sustain their health and well-being. Zhineng Qigong science research has been shown to reduce stress, relieve chronic pain, strengthen the body, stimulate the immune system, increase blood circulation and cardiovascular fitness, improve mental clarity and relieve insomnia.



  Why practice Zhineng Qigong?


By opening our heart and mind, we are dissolving the blockages so natural qi can flow vigorously throughout the body bringing life energy to every cell. Without blockages, we become balanced, healthy, joyous, and full of energy and vitality, not just free from illness or disease! Most people who learn Zhineng Qigong continue to practice it, for one simple reason, it works.
