Chinese the word "Qigong" has two characters, Qi (Chi)
and Gong. "Qi or chi" means life energy and "Gong" means
daily effort. In short, Qigong is a practice to
use Qi for different purposes including self-healing.
Everyone is born with chi and everyone has the potential
to use chi for many purposes. It is the same way as
swimming, we are born with the potential to swim but
only when we acquire the skill to swim then we can
enjoy different water activities such as scuba diving,
water polo, free style, butterfly swimming, etc. In
the same manner, the skill to use chi is trained not
born. Once a person is trained how to use chi, he or
she then can use chi for martial arts, dancing, weight
lifting (yes, weight lifting as the Chinese trained
weight lifters using qigong!) and of course, medical,
is Zhineng Qigong?
means intelligence. This medical qigong method
was developed by Dr. Pang Ming. It has more
than ten million practitioners at one time
or the other. Its headquarter, Huaxia Zhineng
Qigong Center, is located in Qinhuangdao,
five hours by train East of Beijing. This
center is the largest of its kind in China,
and the world's largest medicineless hospital.
(Do not be confused with ZhiNeng Medicine
Qigong. It is a different type of qigong.
That's one of the reasons why we use Chi-Lel
in the Western world).
Qigong is the number one qigong endorsed by the official
1997 Chinese book, China's Exercises for Health: Medical
is Chi-Lel TM Qigong?
means chi therapy. Chi-Lel is a trademark by
Luke and Frank Chan since 1995 and it is our version
of Zhineng Qigong. We try to interpret Zhineng
Qigong as closely as possible as we travel to China
frequently to update the latest research. Yet the situation
in China is very different from the USA (Western World)
and we must take advantage of each society's characteristics.
In the West, we don't have the luxury to gather hundreds
if not thousands of people to practice at one time.
Yet, in the West, we have the technology to make different
soundtracks audiotape to facilitate individual advancement.
