The History of Wisdom Healing Qigong
Qigong – A 5000+ Year Old Story Told By Master Mingtong Gu
The history of Qigong traces back over five thousand years, to prehistoric shamanism and the later Huan Yuan lineage of integrated Taoist and Buddhist wisdom. But despite its long history, very few people have direct personal experience of Qigong.
One pioneer bringing Qigong to greater public awareness is Grandmaster Pang Ming, a Chinese doctor of Western medicine who has also studied Eastern spiritual and healing traditions. He synthesized esoteric wisdom with medical expertise to create Zhineng (“Wisdom Healing”) Qigong, emphasizing practical wellbeing, yet going deep into the essence of life and human potential.
In 1988, Dr. Pang established the non-profit Zhineng Qigong Training and Recovery Center near Beijing. At first he had only a handful of students, but soon there were thousands.
Ever since my childhood in a small Chinese village, I had severe asthma and scoliosis. At Dr. Pang’s center, I experienced two weeks of non-stop coughing… and then all the symptoms of asthma were released from my body. After about three years of dedicated practice, all my scoliosis symptoms were released too.
On analysis, 95% of Dr. Pang’s students showed measurable improvement in their health. There is now more than 20 years of scientific evidence demonstrating Zhineng Qigong’s healing effects in a wide range of health conditions.
I chose to continue studying under Dr. Pang and become a Qigong Master. For decades now, I’ve taught a unique interpretation of Zhineng Qigong called Wisdom Healing Qigong, that I’ve developed and made accessible for a modern, global audience.
Wisdom Healing Qigong supports us in realizing our full potential, based on a profound understanding of how existence really works. Everything is the expression of a single pure energy. All we must do is continuously come back to this state of oneness, and through this practice we also heal ourselves.
I founded The Chi Center for Wisdom Healing Qigong to provide opportunities for learning and practice with a Qigong Master trained directly by Dr. Pang. It’s a place dedicated to self-healing and self-empowerment, where students, health care professionals, transformational leaders, and teachers come to recharge their energy while learning new skills to add to their practice toolset.
I feel profoundly honored to lead the continuation of Dr. Pang’s vision and the expansion of wisdom, energetic connection, and pure consciousness across the globe. I welcome you to join me in this evolution.
Grandmaster Ming Pang
Wisdom Healing (Zhineng) Qigong was developed by Dr. Ming Pang, a Qigong Grandmaster trained in both western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine. He synthesized his profound medical knowledge of the old and new healing sciences with the ancient Qigong practice.
The result is an integrative system of self-healing and cultivation that is suited for the modern pragmatic world.
Dr. Pang (Heming Pang) is a renowned Chinese Qigong Grandmaster. He founded the largest Qigong medicine-less hospital in China, which has treated more than 200,000 patients and a documented 95% success rate . The Chinese government named Zhineng Qigong as the one of the most effective medical Qigong due to its extensive research and effective application of Qigong as a mind-body science.
