Prof. Huixian Chen was diagnosed in 1982 with terminal cancer. In search for a cure, Professor Chen was introduced to Qigong. At that time, she was an English Professor at University of International Business and Economics in China. After her remarkable recovery, Professor Chen became a devoted practitioner and has dedicated her life to teaching Qigong. Since then, she has trained hundreds of students in both Essence Qigong and Soaring Crane Qigong, and certified many teachers and lineage holders as well. Speaking of Qigong, Professor Chen said, “When doing all movements, always follow the needs of the body and the feelings of your heart. Practice according to your own Law of Life. Everybody’s Law of Life is different. Only you can really know yourself and your own Law of Life. Love your life. Respect your life. Treasure your life.”

Master Chen, Fu-Yin was chosen to introduce Chinese Essence Qigong to the United States. A group of Chinese qigong masters collaborated to extract the most essential components common to many forms of qigong. The result was the form now known as Chinese Essence Qigong. Essence Qigong brings qi deep into the body, penetrating rapidly through muscles to organs and bone marrow. Practiced with the eyes closed, this form of qigong is deeply mediative and is easy to practice on your own. This form of qigong is also recommended for more advanced students who wish to deepen their experience of qi.
