Founder

Dr Pang Ming developed this Meditation in Movement and its influence on health has been studied extensively over many years of research. He was schooled in the traditional Chinese healing methods and is also a Western-educated doctor. He is the founder of the ZQ which I now practise.

As a grand master in Taijiquan (Eastern movement discipline and originally a Chinese fighting skill), Dr Pang Ming was already practising this movement skill in the 1970s. In so doing he deviated from a centuries-old Chinese tradition, where important information was only passed on from father to son and was kept strictly secret from the outside world.

He brought together his many years’ experience as a Taijiquan grand master and his enormous knowledge of both Chinese and Western medicine. He combined the most significant elements of these two in Zhineng Qigong.

ZQ hospital

Dr Pang Ming tested the ZQ on and with his patients and refined it until he achieved the most optimum form of ZQ. In 1988 Dr Pang Ming founded the largest medicine-less hospital in the world: the Huaxia Centre. More than 300,000 patients used the centre in its 10 or so years of existence. These people stayed there for between 24 and 40 days, and were initiated in the Zhineng Qigong exercises in that time. Around 180 different syndromes were included in a major survey to determine the effectiveness of the treatment, with the following result: a marked improvement in their condition was achieved for around 95% of those participating.

On 20 July 1999 the Falun Gong movement was banned by the Chinese authorities. Among other things this meant that gatherings of large numbers of people were forbidden in China. Dr Pang Ming thus decided to close the Huaxia Centre and to focus on ZQ research and science.
