Zhineng Qigong sessions, workshops and retreats happen all over the world, from locations as diverse as the USA, Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. Its true origin is China where it was developed in the early 1980s by Professor Dr. Pang Ming, a highly respected Chinese Qigong Grand Master trained in both Western and Eastern medicine. In 1988 he founded the Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Training & Recovery Centre close to Beijing, also known in the West as the “Medicine-less Hospital”.

In this centre people gathered from all parts of China and later also from the West, to learn from Dr Pang Ming and his team the art of self-healing in a natural way. Many of these people suffered from diverse chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer or heart disease. They were not referred to as ‘patients’ but rather “students”. Many of these new students had very serious symptoms. Thanks to the intensive Zhineng Qigong practice, many either healed themselves completely or achieved significant improvements in their health.
