Why: . Modern western science is just catching up with ancient Chinese medicine and philosophy in discovering that Qi (bio-energy) is life and health.  Attendees will have the rare opportunity to learn and experience directly from the world’s top masters and scientists about complementary and alternative  medicine (CAM) that patients as well as practitioners are adopting at an accelerated rate


· As our nation struggles to find efficient, cost effective ways to improve health, this Congress offers 50+ masters with notable contributions to the art and science of Qigong and Traditional Chinese Medicine and others inordinately successful in studying its effects.  

·Dr. Andrew Weil calls for a restoration of the focus of medicine on health and healing; and emphasizing the centrality of the patient-physician relationship in his book Why our Health Matters,

·The National Center for Complementary & Alternative Medicine, part of the US National Institutes of Health, found that in 2002, 62.1% of adults in the US had used some form of CAM in the past 12 months and 75% across lifespan.

Who: Celebrities in Healing and Martial Arts, Dr. Sharyn Wynters and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa headline a faculty of 50+ presenters.
