I highly recommend my brother & colleague in the Internal arts Sifu Dan Ferrera.

He is the author of a great Shaolin Qi Gong Book :

His healing skills, and teaching skills and ability to use Chi for Martial, Health & spiritual application are VERY HIGH LEVEL.
Do yourself a favor and go see him if you are in his area. Or Contact him through his site for his products.

Anyone with a chronic disease who wants to receive Chi healing treatments can call #248-478-1088 or email Dan Ferrera at

Here is a list of just some of the things he teaches:

Niikura Ki Breathing This is a unique and completely original method of energy cultivation developed by Ki Master Sensei Katsumi Niikura. The method is highly effective in its ability to improve health, develop sensitivity or energy awareness and gives the practitioner the ability to manipulate internal and external Ki very quickly. If you are interested in healing others, this is one of the best methods to learn. It combines physical movements similar to some systems of yoga and martial arts with breath and intent. The breathing method is completely unique to his method and uses the teeth to enhance the Ki. Please note that Ki is the Japanese word for Chi. The Ki Breathing Method is an incredibly powerful practice that instantly brings large amounts of Ki into your body. This type of high-powered breathing technique is important because it has enough power to break through deep emotional, physical, and energetic blockages.

BloodWashing (Xue Sui Jing Qigong) This method creates a continuous circuit or flow pattern of Chi throughout the body that follows the path of its natural flow pattern according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. It helps to enhance chi flow, improves overall circulation and strengthens the body’s network of nerves through physical and energetic stimulation. This practice is very invigorating and has many levels as you advance in your skill.

Dynamic Moving Forms (Primordial Qigong & Stirring The Waters Qigong) Both of these Qigong forms use very simple yet powerful sets of movement to tap into the energy of the four cardinal directions (East, West, South, North) and combines them with the universal energy for cultivating internal Chi. They are the most powerful Qigong forms I've found. Both are wonderful Qigong methods for those who are developing their Chi, but feel as though they need something more. Both methods are easy to learn and take only 15-minutes to perform. As you advance and become comfortable performing the form, you are taught to use colors and emotions to dramatically enhance the practice.

Shaolin Nei Jing Yi Chan Standing Qigong (Zhang Zhuang) Standing Qigong is about four thousand years old, and is used for everything from building internal strength for martial arts to self-healing, lowering blood pressure, increasing respiration and alertness, reducing stress and pain, and improving health and energy overall. The result is a high level of internal motion within the body that drives your Chi to move through its energy channels as the blood surges through your veins and arteries. Eventually you expand beyond your normal limits of endurance to a highly energized state of alert tranquility. This particular standing Qigong has a long history of effectiveness. It is believed that the sage Bodhidharma taught this practice also known as One Finger Zen to the Shaolin monks several thousand years ago. Unique among thousands of other Qigong forms, One Finger Zen promotes healing and inner strength through stillness while also manipulating the fingers and/or toes. The form is considered exceptional in that it can bring the seriously ill back to health and has even saved many near death. It can be practiced standing, sitting or even lying down, but the effectiveness of the method weakens based on these choices. Sitting is considered to be 10 times stronger than lying down and standing is considered to be 10 times stronger than sitting.

Dynamic Stands (Eternal Spring Qigong) This Qigong is a synergistic blend of Bodhidharma’s Bone Marrow Cleanse Qigong and Master Chunyi Lin’s Spring Forest Qigong. Both methods are known to promote self-healing and develop chi through gentle easy to learn arm movements while holding a fixed leg posture or stand. The method is easy to learn and becomes quite pleasurable as your awareness of chi develops. It combines the health and endurance benefits of Standing Qigong (Zhang Zhuang) with that of moving Qigong systems. It is 50% stationary and 50% dynamic.

Eight Elemental Stake Qigong This Qigong uses standing Qigong, color visualizations, healing chants and is a basic relaxation and self-healing method utilizing simple postures, Eight Directions and special sounds to transform negative emotional energy into positive vitality. This practice typically results in improved digestion, reduced internal stress, reduced insomnia and headaches, and greater vitality as the flow of Chi increases throughout the different internal organs in the body.

Martial Qigong Sets (YiJin Ching & Himm Kong) Both methods are designed to dramatically strengthen the tendon and ligament system in the body while accumulating Chi. The Himm Kong or “Power Exercises” practice also involves color visualizations and breath sounds to further refine and project the accumulated Chi.

Tai Chi Ruler Qigong This practice is a very rare system of Taoist Yoga, or Chi Kung utilizing a specially designed wooden dowel or "ruler" that was derived from the shape of the ancient Chinese sword handle. The Tai Chi Ruler is an exercise done in continuous repetition with deep, slow breathing with the ruler held between the palms on the Lao Gong point. Each exercise coordinates breath, mental and visual concentration with a basic tai chi physical pattern that shifts the body’s weight between both legs. The method is based entirely on natural principles, Tai Chi Ruler imparts both holistic fitness and integral strength training and is a complete system of Taoist style Yoga - just as Hatha, Kundalini, Raja are complete yoga systems - that integrates mind and body to purify the human spirit. Tai Chi Ruler practice imparts holistic fitness, integral strength, and substantial Chi accumulation and circulation into a single practice and is an excellent foundation for Tai Chi Chuan, Bahuazhang, Xing Yi Chuan, or any martial art, meditation or health & fitness practice." The Tai Chi Ruler aligns, stimulates and empowers the 7 major energy reservoirs, Chakras or “dan tiens”, and energy pathways or meridians of the body.

Seated Meditations (Dan Tiens, Kan & Li or Kundalini, Orbit Practice, Void, Healing, etc.) The majority of these meditation type Qigongs are for spiritual development known as enlightenment or awakening. Some are for self-healing or the distant healing of others. However, the majority of these seated Qigong methods that I have been exposed to are primarily to either prepare you for the awakening the dormant spiritual energy at the base of the spine known as Kundalini energy or to actually begin the process of activating it.

Received from one of my Silat Brothers, Guru Eddie Quin his "THE APPROACH" Silat DVDS and intro to Silat Fitrah. Well what can I say? Simple Awesome. Eddie comes from a strong line of Silat going back to Guru Tua Chris Parker & Bapak HJ Idris B Alimuda from Malaysia.

Guru Eddie does a great job of teaching you the stripped down "TRUTH" in movements needed in real combat & Pencak Silat. What will really work in real CONFLICT is actually very simple things that one must master. Guru Eddie shows you exactly what is needed. The "APPROACH" is the keys behind most SILAT at its essence. Its beyond technique but its clear that Guru Eddie has real technical, skill and proficiency.

Please do yourself a favor and get Guru Eddie's DVDS.
