In the 1990s, Hou Hee Chan Laoshi and his brother Luke Chan were among the first teachers to officially introduce Zhineng Qigong, a medical Qigong famous in China for healing thousands with "incurable" diseases, to students in the United States. They named their organization Chilel (meaning Qi Therapy) Qigong with the approval of Dr. Pang Ming, founder and grandmaster of Zhineng Qigong. Drawing from over 40 years of training and practice in Taiji and Qigong and his background as an engineer, the hallmark of Chan Laoshi's teaching is his ability to explain to his students HOW and WHY a movement is performed in terms that they are able to understand. Chan Laoshi's philosophy is that Qigong is not something that is mysterious. He defines Qigong as "physical therapy or exercise with mindfulness." Qigong is what we practice once we become aware of our body and aware of how we move our body. To complement the physical forms of Qigong, he teamed up with Eva Lew, M.D. who provides insights into the mental and emotional parts of Qigong practice as well as the relationship of Qigong to Western Medicine. Their collaboration resulted in the release of "Medicine Begins with Me: a Holistic Approach to Healthcare." This program is designed to train healthcare providers as well as the general public in effective, easy to learn Qigong techniques.
