Enhance your mind and body with simple techniques.

"I think better, sleep better, and feel better too. Qigong taught by Master Chu helps me handle the stress of my life." Roma Hammel, Ph.D., high school teacher, Los Altos.

Learn simple effective techniques that have been perfected in China for centuries.

Stretches, self-massage, acupressure, postures and conscious breathing patterns are easy and fun to learn, and they work! The "Eight Pieces of Silk", the "Five Animal Play" and other qigong programs can help people of all ages look and feel better.

Joe Hing Kwok Chu, the instructor, is a master of medical qigong. He has been teaching qigong in Redwood City since 1967, and for many years before that in China.
