As a doctor trained in Eastern and Western medicine as well as a Qi Gong und Tai Chi Grandmaster, Prof. Dr. Pang Ming was inspired to create a Qi Gong form which people could learn without much efforts and yet very effective. His intention was to support particularly people who aim to develop and uplift their own health and well-being.
Prof. Dr. Pang Ming himself started to practice Tai Chi and Qigong at the age of 6. He was trained by 19 Grandmasters. He devoted several years in solitude in order to complete his own deep understanding of Qigong and be able to create the diverse principles, methods and profound and intelligent theories of Zhineng Qigong Science.
Furthermore, he was one of the first to combine the old Chinese tradition with the modern science of medicine. In fact, since the late 70s he is a pioneer in creating the new Qigong science. He was the founder and president of different scientific institutions, which focused on the research of impact and effects of Qigong. In 1979 he founded the Beijing Qigong Association and initiated the first national convention on Qigong.
He was the first Qigong Master who broke with the tradition and started to share the power and beauty of Qigong with a broader mass of people. Therefore, Zhineng Qigong is also referred to as an “open Qigong form”. At the beginning of the 20th century, Zhineng Qigong was officially recognized as the most effective Qigong form and over 10 million people at that time where practicing it. Dr. Pang has done a lot of pioneering work in many areas. A particular achievement was to describe the systematic Qigong theory in a well-founded manner and to undermine it with scientific research and studies.
