R.J. is always striving to increase his knowledge and clinical effectiveness, by continually studying, learning from, and being inspired by the best Acupuncturists and Chinese Herbalists in the world, which include the late "Henry" Weidong Han, Wei Chieh Young, "Jimmy" Wei Yen Chang, the late "Richard" Teh Fu Tan, and Ming Qing Zhu.
QiGong is RJ's biggest passion and he has been very fortunate to have learned from many high level masters. These masters have imparted ancient wisdom that is missing from "Traditional Chinese Medicine". Most of this wisdom has been kept very secretive and is passed down only from Master to student. It has deepened and enriched his practice of Chinese Medicine, and deeply benefited his patients.
After many years of dedication and disciplined training in internal cultivation, he was asked to teach and impart this wisdom to help humanity. He shares the same dream as his teachers, that of awakening and empowering the individual to master their own health and happiness, and spread universal compassion.
The inspiration for his teaching and healing comes primarily from five schools of QiGong:
of the energetic arts center, in Atascadero, California. Richard Barr is a medical Qigong practitioner, and master of Sil Lum Kung Fu, a traditional system based on the movements of the Five Animals, and Chinese weaponry, who trained under both Master Gilbert Bates, and the famed late Grandmaster Ark Y. Wong.
, medical Qigong master and Qigong therapist in Berkeley, California. He has been practicing Qigong for more than 50 years with great masters from all the major schools of Chinese Qigong. He is a disciple of the late Grandmaster Yang, Mei-Jun, the 27th lineage holder of the Wild Goose (Dayan) system. Dr. Hu is one of the few living masters to have learned the entire system. Grandmaster Yang, Mei-Jun was one of the true giants of modern Qigong and energy medicine and an inheritor of the Kunlun School Taoist tradition, which dates back to the Jin dynasty (265-420 AD). She performed healing miracles well into her 90’s, passed on a complete system of glorious movement, meditation and healing, and was widely honored when she died at the age of 106.
3). Master Zhao Shihua, is a respected master from Chengdu, China. There he ran a Qigong research and training centre with thousands of students before immigrating to Australia after his healing abilities and teaching skills were discovered by the former Prime Minister, Bob Hawke. He cured Bob Hawke’s daughter of chronic fatigue with Qigong treatments. Master Zhao began learning Buddhist Qigong with his grandmother when he was 3 years old. Over the past 50 plus years of extensive training, Zhao has learned from many different Qigong masters and studied both traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicines.
