By accident, Chris Holder blended QiGong and Chinese medicine and
realized that it has a great amount of efficacy for very ill
people. Chris started exploring the possibility of using the
same protocol for athletes at Cal Poly Pomona University, San Luis
Obispo who might just need a “tune up”, and they saw great results.
They started to see athletes getting stronger and faster. Bring
inflammation down. Clearing their mind. Sleeping better. Having a
peace of mind, and being prepared to perform.

What is Qigong?
Traditional Chinese medicine revolves around 4 main pillars:
Qigong is the mother of acupuncture. Everything that goes on in
acupuncture (meridians, vibrating energy, movement, chi movement,
breath, etc.), happens in Qigong but without the needles. It helps
you move through the energy through a series of physical exercises
and breathing control.
You learn to control your energy. It does a woo-woo feel to it, and
most of the information you find on it online has cosmic type
costumes and backgrounds. Chris’ goal is to normalize it as much as
possible, it doesn’t have to have that “weird” look and make it
look as comfortable as possible.

When it moves too far to the side, that’s when you see illnesses.
Qigong helps realign that line down the middle of the body, and
this is where people will feel their best.
Who are you treating with Qigong?

and sent it out to the divine that he is here to help those that
need and want to be helped. He sees a lot of people who are getting
their funeral arrangements together. People who are dying of cancer
and other types of diseases.
For a period of time, all he would see is women who had been
abused. It’s the Universe responding.
He sees people who usually cannot get a solution through Western
