Their kindness, enthusiasm and devotion has touched and healed many deeply. I am honored to be part of these lineages to help these ancient ways continue.

Master Wang, Zhezhong is the 19th generation lineage holder of the Wang Family Turtle Longevity Qigong, a qigong system that has been practiced by the Wang Family for several hundred years. He began training at the age of four with his grandfather, finding Master Wang to be diligent and gifted, his grandfather passed on to him all the secrets and techniques unique to their family form. As the form was considered a family heirloom, the successive lineage holders were not permitted to teach the form to the general public. Moved by the condition of the general public in the years following the Cultural Revolution, Master Wang broke with the family tradition after careful consideration and began to teach the form publicly in China. Student response was very enthusiastic, as the form was found to be tremendously effective. Turtle Longevity Qigong quickly gained an excellent reputation and came to be regarded as one of the best qigong forms in China.
Master Wang was later invited to teach in Japan and Canada, and the form was eventually introduced to the United States of America in 1993. Since that time, over 300 teachers of this form have been certified and countless students in the United States have benefited from this powerful healing practice.
Master Wang's many years of personal practice of his family's methods have developed in him a unique gift: the power to heal patients through talking to them. This therapeutic treatment has proven effective in person, via telephone, and via videotape. He was invited to demonstrate this unusual healing method in France, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Master Ma, Chengkai is a former journalist. He became very ill in his late thirties, a result of overwork, becoming bed-ridden with terminal illness. Depressed, he began to question why people had to comply with their fate, rather than finding a way to help survive diseases. In search of a cure, he visited many psychic healers for treatment and experienced many psychic healing methods. He discovered that the secret of psychic healing power lies in the way the healers think. Based on this idea, he studied Traditional Chinese Medicine, ancient Chinese philosophy and qigong theories. Fifteen years of research resulted in Master Ma's basic concept: the key to health, wisdom and enlightenment is in our own hands. Master Ma's method, the Super Energy Clapping Hands Method, has proven remarkably effective in stimulating self-healing. Upon introduction to the public, this method became one of the most popular qigong methods in China. Everywhere in China the sound of clapping hands can be heard on the roadsides or in the parks, early in the morning and in the evening. This form keeps people healthy, happy and connected.
