Stillness and action are relative, not absolute, principles. It is important to find a balance of yin and yang, not just in qigong, but in everyday life. In movement, seek stillness and rest. In rest, be mindful and attentive. Ken Cohen

The basis of Biotherapy is immune system stimulation and modulation with a human bioenergy generated bioelectromagnetic field.
In 2016 I was one of the first people in Singapore to learn the art of Biotherapy.
Prof Yu-Feng Wei
Longevity is a practice (kung-fu) that involves the body, the heart , and the spirit . It was originated from Dr. Lin Tse-Hung, a medical practitioner in Los Angeles, California.
Upon being exposed to some energy medicine, Dr. Lin recommended and encouraged teacher Lin Tse-Chen to participate. Teacher Lin refined it with actual clinical experience, freed it of unneccessary attachments, and added new concepts, theories, and methods, thus creating a new path in the modern day search for physical, mental, and spiritual health-Longevity.
With all the research, the experiment and experience, Prof Wei Yu Feng came in to participate with Longevitology. After completing his intermediate class, he commented that he felt of ability to help others by making adjustments through the universal energy. From the experience, it has found that any causes of illness be it from the body, heart or the spirit can be corrected if practitioners hold compassionate hearts and sympathy to others and extend both hands to help.
Now Prof Wei Yu Feng and Teacher Lin Tse-Chen went all over the country to pass them the experience and taught how to help others through channeling universal energy naturally.

Sifu Nicholas Chia- Founder Qi Vitality
Sifu is a fervent God fearing christian who teaches Qigong in his church and in different locations. He is as generous and gentlemanly as a man can be and I am indebted to have learnt this system through him through the years.
Qi Vitality' structured breathing techniques enable the practitioner to generate, harness and circulate Qi to achieve a heightened state of holistic equilibrium. The 'mind-body in harmony' connection is achieved with the training of the "Yi" (focus/intent).
An Old Qigong goes like this "where the focus is, Qi will flow there". The mind-body connection ultimately leads to relaxation of the sympathetic nervous system which, if blocked, will give rise to stress-related illnesses.
The system combines the best practices of the three established martial arts and meditation disciplines into one regimen:
- The Northern Shaolin Inner Power Qigong, which focuses on the circulation within the body, is the basis of the system's breathing techniques.
- The principles of Southern Shaolin Wu Mei Nei Gong (the Art of the Fighting Nun), which concentrates on strengthening the internal body, are adapted for techniques to develop the inner power of Qi.
- Chi Meditation Self-Healing Methods, which evolved from Parayama and Kundalini Yoga Meditation systems. From these systems come the Chinese system of the flow of yang energy from the spine - Tu channel (central nervous system) and the yin energy flow of the front - Ren channel (autonomous nervous system), which we now call the microcosmic or inner orbit (small heavenly orbit, as the Chinese calls it) provides a powerful tool to trigger the self-healing mechanism with its complete yin and yang flow.
The system includes
5 types of Breath= Fu, Chui, Tu, Pi, Xi
Warm up= Hands Flicking (sideways, palms upwards and downwards), Snake Form- Yin version, Yang version, Turtle Form, Anti Osteoporosis
Stretching=Butterfly Stretch, Qigong(Small Crane) Walk, Sword Stretch
