Seasons Greetings and Good Qi from Dr. Chow and all at the East West Academy of Healing Arts

Dear Family of Chow Qigong and friends... Happy Holidays!

Thank you, dear friends for your constant support and doing good for the world.

In this time of Christmas celebration, I send you today our message for ultimate love that is basic in humanity.

In this time of Christmas celebration, God has given us another spot of really good news to be able to truly help the world as is our passionate goal. Now we can really raise monies for our veteran and youth healers, seniors and hospice and other projects! ....

Last week, a publisher approached me to re-publish my book, Miracle Healing From China...Qigong into an e-book as well as a paper-back.....and now we are in the nice exciting crunch of having to get the entire book scanned into digital format (by my student volunteers!) by December 27 so we can expect the release date to be January 30, 2015! It will be promoted world-wide!

This will be in concert with our plans for a world-wide tour schedule for Chow Qigong!

The publisher drew my attention to the excellent reviews of the book on Amazon which I was not aware of.... here are just a few for your perusal....

"The stories of healing with Qigong are not exaggerated. Lay people can generate sufficient healing energy using Dr. Chow's methods to be felt by others and to assist healing, in our case, my daughter's very severe ulcerative colitis."
"5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! It's a must have for anyone interested in Qigong. An excellent book for the beginner and the advanced. Lots of very informative information and sources given. Describes Qigong in the past, present and future. A powerful Qigong system that really does give quick results."
"5.0 out of 5 stars Qigong taught by the Grande Dame of Qigong. If the USA, Dr. Chow's adopted home, had royalty, this healing practitioner would be knighted. I heard about her
from listening to Dr. john Nieters on his podcast 'The Balancing Point', and everything he said about her is true."

In loving Qi with hugs, laughter and miracles for sound health of body/mind/spirit from the EWAHA Family!

Attack on Parliament Hill:
Chow Qigong Brings Calmness during a Fearful Event

The testimony from Parliamentary Protective Services employee below describes how Chow Qigong brought inner calmness, clearer thinking and peace during a time of high stress and danger. A potent reminder of some of Dr. Chow's basic principles of deep breathing, 8 hugs and 3 belly-aching laughs daily and the powerful impact that they can have for our own livelihood and the lives of others!

Attack on Parliament Hill

"The Parliament was under attack on October 22, 2014. For over 20 years I held a very responsible position and this was my first such an encounter! The sounds of shooting and people scurrying and screaming greatly frightened me initially. The safety of the Prime Minister, the Members of Parliament and the people were uppermost in my mind. To help me think clearly, I started doing the deep breathing as taught by Dr. Chow. The fear left, then an inner peace came upon me like what I feel during and after Chow Qigong classes! I was able to calmly execute my responsibilities and help calm others. That day and the days after, I taught everybody Dr. Chow’s therapeutic philosophy of giving at least 8 hugs and have 3 belly-aching laughs daily. Everybody appreciated it as it helped to reduce the stress from the fearful event. "And another Parliament Protective Services member's testimony:

Parliament Hill

"These few words are simply to acknowledge the great wisdom and rewards acquired from your healing classes. During the incident of Oct. 22, 2014 and as I bestowed upon my duties to Serve & Protect our Parliamentarians, the calmness within my “Qi” served me well. Only a few seconds of deep breathing, searching to claim the calm of my spirit ..., my own “Qi” restored my confidence, energy and guidance. These are the reflections in life's moments of crisis that we realize where our great Teachers & Grandmasters really made a difference. A great believer & student of the “Chow Qigong”.”

We are proud to share testimonials from our Chow Qigong students who protected the safety of the Prime Minister and members of Parliament during the recent shooting attack in Ottawa.

Developing Chow Qigong Program in North of Market Community

In discussion with agencies in the North of Market area, we are creating a potentially a very exciting new program, bringing Natural Medicine, Chow Integrated Healing System/Chow Medical Qigong (CIHS/CMQ) including TCM to the North of Market community. At the Natural Medicine with AHSC, a couple who tried eight years to conceive unsuccessfully tried acupuncture and immediately after nine months gave birth to a baby boy! Qigong and TCM has proven effective with many unresolved long-term conditions of body, mind, spirit and environment!

It is well-known that pockets of San Francisco community like the North of Market area also known as the Tenderloin District, suffers from economic depression and more.

The Tenderloin District is three hundred times more crowded than the rest of San Francisco and in less than 1 square mile contains 37,000 residents living in 586 low income apartment buildings. 26% of the residents live below the poverty line. This results in the highest crime rate of any area in SF, averaging three major crimes per hour. In addition to the residents, 6,000 homeless come to the tenderloin daily.

Tenderloin Map

 Thousands of people in the North of Market neighborhoods are alone and living in isolation. The true reflection of the community is not what is happening on street corners, but what is happening behind closed doors. With our program, our vision is to reach and draw out the people in the NOM community who are shut in, from the elderly, families, children, veterans, transgender and homeless runaways, to the mentally ill.

It is also known that western medicine has limited results with the physical and emotional pains and family estrangements that persist in economic and social deprivation. (See Escape Fire trailer) Many of these families are of Asian descent. Statistics reveal a troublesome escalating suicide rate in the recent times, PTS is rampant, drop-out rates from mental and medical therapies are also worry-some. Job rehabilitation is almost non-existent.

Many sources are recommending alternative/complementary treatment programs which has in the past 10 years become more accepted, but minimally utilized by the main health system. One such program that is having results where all else have failed is The Chow Integrated Healing System/Chow Medical Qigong (CIHS/CMQ) including Tai Chi Chuan (Taiji).

Tenderloin Arial

Though this partnership with the North of Market agencies and businesses, our goal is to contribute to a nationwide effort by giving a Basic Introductory and Level 1 Intensive Chow Medical Qigong Training Program for impoverished communities and help to build a financially rewarding sustainable healing and organizational career as well as build the businesses in NOM.

The main purpose of our program is to:

    1) Quickly assist community members who have sustained a condition that is not healing to receive rapid relief to hopefully total improvement/recovery. This can lead to employability.
    2) Have the individual turn around and assist with others’ healing. Training trainers to train!
    3) With practice and improvement of skills, establish a sustainable and viable career in the healing field which is the best expanding opportunity for employment at this time.
    4) Building Integrated Healing System/Chow Medical Qigong Healing Hubs (CIHS/CMQ-HH) nationally and internationally in every possible city and home. The number of (CIHS/CMQ-HH) to be developed is limitless.
    5) As a super plus in our program, we will create a tourist agenda for Cuisine and inexpensive shopping in NOM to draw business from outside population to support and boost business for the local restaurants and other businesses in NOM

We MUST JOIN TOGETHER NOW to make the public enlightened to what we have worked so long for. Through our World Congress on Qigong/TaiChi/TCM, East West Academy of Healing Arts, American Qigong Association and World Qigong Federation, I am inviting everyone to contribute to this program by sharing with us your funding support. I invite you to contact us and state what funding and/or skills you wish to contribute toward this effort.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

We have very exciting news in good to share from Dr. Chow’s recent trip to Rome, attending the Third Italian Qigong Symposium. In the article published by Violet Li of the Examiner, read about the many exciting projects including Qigong in schools, hospitals, and drug rehabilitation being conducted to advance the treatment of Alzheimer's Disease, breast cancer, depression and other chronic diseases. Many thanks again to East West Academy of Healing Arts partners, Marisa Vocca and the Nei Dao organization. Join us for many exciting demonstrations, performances, and miracles performed by Grandmaster Effie Chow and many world renowned Masters of Qigong, TCM, and Tai Chi (Taiji) Quan at the upcoming 17th World Congress on Qigong/TCM in June 2015!

The Mystical Event Sept 12-14, 2014
in Gatineau, Quebec (near Ottawa, Ontario)

The Mystical Event was attended collectively by over 2000 people and 100 exhibitors Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sunday 10am to 5pm on Sunday.

Chow Qigong had a 100% success rate! Life-changing and transformational for many in body, mind and spirit! Dr. Chow presented in a new format of using surrogate volunteers up on stage to apply Chow Qigong Therapy –The Empty Force- and requested the rest of attendees to feel the energy connection and let healing be with them as well. There were about 200 people in each of the Conferences which were one hour in duration. Videos were taken. The Healing Circles were 50 minutes in duration with up to 8 people in each of the Healing Circles. Only the first one was videotaped.

In the Conference outcomes, each of the volunteers gained significant and total relief with their conditions, and shown by raising hands, about 95% of the general attendees indicated improvement with their conditions as well!

Read about just a few of the remarkable testimonials from participants who attended this powerful healing event…

Right Eye had years of problem. 5 laser surgeries, last one 2 days ago. Eye feels “scratchy and with large black floaters” vision slightly blurred, worried and depression increasing with deteriorating condition. Demonstrated eye Qi-exercise. 6 minutes Chow Qigong totally relieved condition. Reported that her eyes felt relaxed, could see more clearly and brighter, no “scratchy sensation” and large floaters totally gone! She was elated. Was very emotional, crying as she has been very worried about condition. Said that her whole body stress and tension had improved. More relaxed. Noted that even her hearing and speech were clearer! She is now more hopeful about her life.

Natalie 12 years old. Winner of 5 Awards in Gymnastics. Fractured 5th lumbar vertebrae June, 2014. Severe pain with restricted movements. With Chow Qigong, felt good warmth, and tingling sensation of spine, more at 5th Lumbar fractured area. Circulation to face improved from pale to rosy pink complexion.

Mayor of a small town in Ontario. Had bilateral weak arms and legs for a couple of years becoming weaker. No therapy has been effective. Focused Chow Qigong therapy on the weaker right side. Worked on upper and lower torso power points as well as deep breathing. 5 minutes of CQ. The right arm and leg worked with were now stronger than the originally stronger left side. In movement and walking, he noticed a significant difference and stronger. He will need the left side worked to balance out both sides. He was very excited and positive whereas he had been quite worried and depressed with his condition which had not been helped with other treatments.


Chow Medical Qigong Advanced Intern Academy Clinic

With blessings from Grandmaster Dr. Effie Chow, the Chow Medical Qigong Advanced Intern Academy has launched with wonderful success. We have seen clients with an array of issues, pain of all types, including a broken hip, cancer, Parkinson's, chronic fatigue, stiff knees, and even a wonderful feline who underwent a tumor removal.

Our graduates host the Intern Clinic very Wednesday from 6pm-8pm, covering a progressive and challenging curriculum over a series of 8 weeks, and offering therapy to participating clients at reduced rates.

Previous Level 1 graduates are especially encouraged to attend and practice teaching and developing the skills of the new Interns. Previous Level 1 Students will have a chance to review and practice what they have learned (we also introduce new skills as well!).

We invite everyone to take advantage of this opportunity. Appointments can be scheduled by emailing eastwestqi@aol.com or by calling Ruth at 415-285-9400.

Read about our exciting results from our past sessions:

  12 year old student at Week 3 Intern Academy Session complained of muscle soreness after P.E. class. She was unable to lift her leg for the evening’s foot massage lesson due to the tension and pain in her thigh muscles. Dr. Chow advised using a technique called brushing, bringing immediate relief and relaxation of the muscles after only 15 seconds of application. See how her flexibility has returned and she is able to stretch her leg into position for her mother to perform foot massage on her. Happy smiles all around!

35 year old student at Week 3 Intern Academy Session says, following foot massage by Grandmaster Dr. Chow herself, "I could visually see the difference with my eyes and feel the warmth, lightness, and agility in the movement of both my hands and feet after only 5 minutes of work on each. In addition to learning about the technique, I especially enjoyed learning how each toe, joint, and *phalange was connected to a channel leading to a specific vital organ, and in essence was massaging that organ by awakening the stagnant energy and improving the flow of blood, oxygen, and energy to those vital organs." (*references to “Friends” episodes naturally brought about lots of laughs)

Comparing the results, you can see a much healthier, vibrant complexion and fullness in the left foot after just 5 minutes of massage, in contrast to the cold, lifeless, dull complexion of the right foot. Student complained of experiencing poor circulation to hands and feet throughout her life - she now has a tool to help herself and others that offers immediate results!
Dr. Chow reminds us, “now that you know what you’ve learned, you must practice, practice, practice to maintain results and long term health!”

A Chow Qigong graduate with a 50 + year “incurable” eye condition originating from birth defects experiences 85% improvement in eyesight after 20 minutes of eye massage by Dr. Chow at our December 17th class. After a treatment in May, this student experienced an instant 20 % improvement to a lifetime of low vision. With regular meditation and Chow Qigong exercises, this student’s vision has improved another 10% in the past 7 months. The sources of his defective vision are due to nystagmus, astigmatism and an apparent lack of cones and/or rods in the eyes (organic pixels) usually associated with albinism. Dr. Chow has also noticed some limitation to his peripheral vision. He is halfway to fulfilling one goal to have enough vision to acquire a standard driver’s license for the first time.
