History of Wisdom Healing (Zhineng) Qigong

Wisdom Healing Qigong was developed by Dr. Pang Ming, a Qigong grandmaster trained in both Western medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine. In the 1980's he founded the world's largest medicine-less Qigong hospital known as the Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Training and Recovery Center. Through scientific research (3000 research papers were published during the 1990's) and more than 30 years of using Qigong practices, Wisdom Healing Qigong has developed into a system of working with energy to improve health conditions and enhance wellness. Master Mingtong Gu, one of the teachers trained by Dr. Pang brought Wisdom Healing Qigong to Petaluma, CA, established the Chi Center and moved to NM in 2016.

Wisdom Healing Qigong is a system and a set of practices that can awaken, transform and integrate the entire body, from the cellular to the spiritual, restoring a person to their natural, healthy and balanced state of being.
