About the Author
I am a registered pharmacist and a qigong therapist/instructor based in Penang, Malaysia. I am also the representative of the Federation of Malaysia Zhineng Qigong Societies to the Traditional & Complementary Medicine Division of the Malaysia Ministry of Health. I started practising Zhineng Qigong in 1997 because of a knee injury which the physician said needed surgery. I spent 15-20 minutes a day practicing wall squats and a little Lift Qi Up half-heartedly and the knee somehow turned better miraculously... In early February 1999, I had a severe renal colic and was rushed to the hospital in the middle of the night. I had a surgery to remove the stag-horn in the left kidney. The surgeon told me that the filtration function of the left kidney had probably gone down to only 10% and if it could recover to 30% six months later then it would be great. He added one extra sentence: "Don't worry, one kidney is good enough for you to live up to a hundred." Well, I was wondering - if one kidney would give me a hundred, if I had both then I should get 200, right? I started reading Dr Pang's books and started practicing seriously in the hospital. On July 1999, I started Island Zhineng Qigong Centre. I had a radioactive kidney function test 6 months after the surgery and the surgeon was shocked to learn that the function had gone back to 95%. He said it must have been a mistake and asked me to redo it. I refused, the procedure cost a bomb and the room was extremely cold. In 2000, I started to conduct various Upgrading and Teacher Training Classes, as well as, started to give public lectures on Zhineng Qigong and published the Elementary Guide to Zhineng Qigong. In 2005, I started qigong healing service at my pharmacy. Some patients are confused whether this is a pharmacy or a qigong clinic. In the same year, I was invited by the Chi Neng Institute to teach in The Netherlands. Subsequently I also taught for the Chi Neng Institute Sweden and was invited by the Haola Qigong group to teach in Germany and Austria. Currently, I am planning to run a qigong clinical trial on asthmatics with a local university here.
