Andraz shares: 

“We are aiming to get regular finance from the Ministry of Health, educate more instructors and activate groups in more cities. Keeping it free of charge, thus available to anyone. We want to conduct research on how effective the methods are and share it with the world as an example of good practice.  Using simple methods – inner perception, connecting to our body, mind and nature, building up our immune system – these are the main characteristics of our practice. Anybody can learn it and use it in his free time to gain perfect health and inner peace.”


Zhineng Qigong for Musicians

  • Farinaz Kheradpicheh
  • HYQT Team 2
  • Netherlands

Farinaz happily shares her knowledge and skills with any fellow musician who is open to it.  By teaching them powerful and easy-to-apply methods that helps them to open up to life energy and improve the Qi flow within the body, she empowers them to eliminate painful blockages, manage stress and tension during performances.

Farinaz was born in Persia, she started taking violin lessons at the age of nine.  When she was 18 years old, she received a scholarship to go to the conservatory in Brussels and after 2 years she continued her studies in Maastricht with Nilla Pierou.  In 1982 Farinaz obtained her U.M. diploma and since September 1982 she has been working with Het Gelders Orkest, where she still plays with great love and pleasure.  Music has always been her passion, and her professional career at the same time, giving her fulfilment from within.

Zhineng Qigong helps her to maintain good health, reduce stress, feel more connected with everything and be more grounded.  It also helps her with her musical career, the intensity and tension that comes with it on a physical and psychological level.  Zhineng Qigong offers her wonderful tools to find balance and strength from within.

Over the years she often witnessed fellow musicians experiencing extreme pain while playing their instrument due to the unnatural body posture it required.  She started sharing some of the methods she learned during her training as a Hunyuan Qi Therapist and was positively surprised how it helped many of them to overcome their problems.

Today she happily shares her knowledge and skills with anyone who is open to it.  By teaching them powerful and easy-to-apply methods that helps them to open up to life energy and improve the Qi flow within the body, she empowers them to eliminate painful blockages, manage stress and tension during performances.

Farinaz shares: 

“The possibility of transformation Zhineng Qigong practice provides is enourmous, but you have to experience this yourself! It requires practice, discipline, belief and the willingness to overcome challenges.”

Supporting the dying

Using Zhineng Qigong and Hunyuan Qi Therapy to support the Dying

  • Reyna Lerma
  • HYQT Team 1
  • USA

“I feel called to work with the dying, and I feel my journey has come full circle to use my knowledge of Zhineng Qigong to support this population.”

Reyna has become a resource to the Hunyuan Qi Therapy community sharing the stages of dying, the process, and what she has learned working with this population.

Reyna shares her motivation for the project:

I came to Zhineng Qigong as a hospice volunteer. They had a volunteer appreciation day and there were many booths, and one of them was a Zhineng Qigong teacher that was going to lead us through Hold Qi up Pour Qi Down. When we started the practice, I knew this would be the rest of my life. I feel called to work with the dying, and I feel my journey has come full circle to use my knowledge of ZQ to support this population. Many people are afraid of dying, and sometimes family members are also afraid and do not have the tools to hold space for the process. One may ask, am I not a ‘healer’ then if I am not focused on recovery? I am always focused on the intention of the person. Healing and curing are different things, and from my experiences of working with people up until the moment they pass, using HYQT is a way to be in the highest vibration possible at death. It is also very healing for the family to witness the changes from HYQT treatment, they have been aware of the energy. There are phases of dying, and even when the client is no longer conscious the healing is evident.

It his her vision to support fellow Hunyuan Qi Therapists to navigate this aspect of the journey.  She points out that it is important to be aware that sometimes an illness may be too advanced, so one should not feel like a failure.

She adds that when working with clients for a long or short time and they pass, therapists need to remind themselves that they did their best and that this is also part of the journey – a gift that they were able to work together.

Reyna says

With these thoughts in mind, I would be open to being a resource to the HYQT community to share the stages of dying, the process, and share what I have learned working with this population.

I would also work with clients directly and be a referral if needed.


Bringing a Zhineng Qigong healing journey on a theatre stage

  • Fafany Koopmans
  • HYQT Team 7
  • Netherlands

“As my own healing story was so powerful, it felt as if I had no other option than sharing my story through teaching Zhineng Qigong and now also with this play.”

When a tumor was discovered in Fafany’s brains in 2016, her healing and life changing journey began. It was an unforgettable and absolutely beautiful journey. Zhineng Qigong has been her travelmate since the beginning.  She felt so inspired that she decided to make a theatre play about her healing journey.

Fafany shares her motivation for the project:

I hope I can show my theatre play to many audiences throughout the Netherlands. Audiences who are dealing (of have dealt) with cancer. Audiences who would love to be inspired about following your own healing journey. Audiences who wish to see a theatre play that touches their heart. I will play at hospitals, foundations, in living rooms, in churches etc. This theatr eplay will follow a new journey and I’m happy to be on this powerful new journey.

Fafany raised money with a crowdfunding project so that she could afford a writer and director.  She started rehearsing in 2020 and in 2022 the premiere of her solo performance was sold out.

The play, in which she is the main and only actress, is about her healing story. The audience has the chance to see inside her brain which leads to funny, chaotic and also emotional scenes. They see and feel the pain but more than this, the optimism of a young mother who is confronted with a death sentence. They see how Fafany followed her own heart which also lead to Zhineng Qigong. 

It is a powerful play and gives the audience hope and inspiration to follow their heart, wherever it leads them.

Where 3 Worlds Collide

  • Petra Segger
  • HYQT Team 6
  • Germany

With heart-centered passion Petra inspires with her concept of Art and Qigong for Companies which embraces our Modern World, Nature and Ancient Qigong Philosophies. 

[read more]


Petra worked nearly 30 years in corporate and knows about the challenges in that field: Stressful times, lack of moving the body and low level of self-caring. Blockages, mental stress and other tension or imbalances appear. She has discovered for herself that these challenges can be solved by applying Zhineng Qigong and Hunyuan Qi methods, also in an office environment as not a lot of space is needed for practice and creating an inspiring Qi-infused space.

Petra’s intention is, to bring Qi-inspired, beautiful artworks in homes and also into companies to infuse people’s world with an extraordinary analogy of Qigong. Adapting the continuous and never-ending transformation, knowing the power of imagination, she creates wholly new perspectives of information what we see into fascinating and deep abstract pieces of art. The same as in nature, none of her artworks are ever the same.

And even more: Her vision is to share the wisdoms of the effective ZQG movements and meditations in companies and motivate them to have relaxing rooms where people practice Qigong, while being surrounded with her Qi-infused pieces of art.She developed the world’s first Concept of Art and Qigong for Companies. 

Petra shares:

“I am in deep gratitude that the universe directed me to Zhineng Qigong and the wisdoms of Hunyuan Qi. 

Live changing experiences, the dissolving of old heart stones and eye-opening knowledge is an amazing gift and I love to share Qigong with others, while speaking and sending messages through my artworks too.”

Zhineng Qigong Healing Stories

  • Hunyuan Qi Therapy Association

This project is a joint venture of a community of dedicated Zhineng Qigong teachers, practitioners and international Hunyuan Qi Therapists under the guidance of the Hunyuan Qi Therapy Association. 

The aim is to create a platform to come together, exchange information, share scientific research and publish inspiring personal stories of recovery using Zhineng Qigong Science or Hunyuan Qi Therapy treatments.

[read more]


The featured experiences of recovery shall inspire those who are looking for new ideas and solutions for efficient and medicine-less self-healthcare approaches and are open to vital Qi energy healing as a possible approach to re-establish holistic health and well-being.

One core principle of Zhineng Qigong Science | Hunyuan Qi Therapy involves a mind-set and willingness to take inspired action in order to regain a state of holistic health and well-being. So what the people who are featured here have in common is this strong intention: “My life, my health and my happiness are controlled by myself!” When you are in charge, it also means you can up your skills, insights and abilities to cope with whatever happens – including a health challenge – in a positive and uplifting way.

As Dr. Pang Ming – the founder of Zhineng Qigong Science – says:

“Cultivating one’s heart and mind is the foundation of Zhineng Qigong Science, using one’s consciousness is the keystone to a happy and healthy life.”
