Welcome to Self Healing Qigong Centre    

Malaysia actually has many good and even famous qigong masters. Some have ventured overseas and have become internationally known. Today, I would like to tell you about my Shaolin Self Healing Qigong grandmaster, who has healed many people, but shuns publicity. He has finally given me permission to write about him.

At age 13, Master Tan Kai Sing was adopted by great Grandmaster Lau Yoke, and was brought to Hong Kong to be trained and nurtured as the next grandmaster.  Kai Sing actually means “the inheritor” (of qigong) and was the name given by Grandmaster Lau Yoke. Although there were other students with him, he was the only one trained in the most disciplined way befitting his designated task of becoming the next grandmaster.

The basic exercise of Shaolin Self Healing Qigong is shaking in the standing position. In fact, for the first 3 years, this was the only exercise he was made to repeat, until he could manifest the qi strongly. According to him, nowadays no student would be willing to go through this kind of discipline, so he has to “jumpstart” them by giving his own qi so that they will start manifesting the qi faster and can learn the other exercises earlier.

He also went through rigorous training in tae kwan do, kung fu and tai chi. Since he was young, he was more attracted to the combative and competitive kung fu and tae kwan do instead of qigong and tai chi.

He achieved the top grades in the martial arts, excelled in the competitions, and even represented the country (in the 80’s) on many occasions. Even then he used his qigong training to give him the edge over his competitors.

After he retired from competitions, he devoted more time to qigong and realised that qigong was even more powerful than the other styles, even in the martial arts. What was more important was that through teaching qigong, he could help many people recover from their health problems.

Now after 40 years of practising qigong, he is very powerful and has also healed thousands of people.

Self-Healing means “self-manifesting”, “self-emanating” or “self-emitting”, thus in this style the student learns to manifest or activate qi from within himself or herself. Although qi pervades the universe, qigong exercises are essential to accumulate qi to the healthiest levels, and to unblock the qi meridians.

While the basic exercise of Shaolin Self-Healing Qigong is shaking in the standing position, there are many other exercises with variations in the arms positions, and even leg movements. In the beginning, the movements are voluntary, but once the qi flows, they become spontaneous.

Unlike many qigong-healing methods which involve passive healing, that is, the master transmits his qi to cause healing in the patient, Shaolin Self-Healing Qigong healing is mostly active ie, by the patients themselves. All patients, including the paralysed stroke patients, have to do (or attempt) the shaking exercise. For the paralysed patients, there may be little or no movements in the beginning, but they will definitely improve during the treatment course. Most will be able to leave their wheelchairs or walking sticks. It is effective for almost all chronic problems like spinal problems, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, asthma and others.

Since a lot of shaking is done, it also has the benefits of aerobics exercise which is good for the heart and lungs, and since each session of practice lasts 1 hour, it is guaranteed to keep you fit and slim if you practise regularly.

While every one can do qigong exercises to increase qi strength and improve its flow, the master is able to command not only his qi, but also the qi in others. We have often seen demonstrations where qigong masters make students or volunteers “move” involuntarily. This is a simple proof that qi exists, and can affect the body. For the students or volunteers, it is a valuable first hand experience of the effects of qi, since many people are still wondering what qi is.

The effects of qi are most powerful when it is accumulated, condensed, and manipulated or transmitted by the command of a master. A master can command the qi in another person just by his thoughts, without even moving his hands.

But the will (mindpower) of different masters differ in their effects, according to their training, passion and destiny. Some masters can create fire and do fantastic physical feats, but cannot heal, while others utilise their talents and gifts for the most noble cause – healing. Interestingly, some masters who have trained to heal can summon the qi for defensive martial arts should an emergency occasion arise. Masters who train in both the healing and martial arts qigong will therefore make formidable fighters.

The most valuable effect of qi is its healing effects. This is where Shaolin Self-Healing Qigong excels, and why my master is much sought after, although he has avoided publicity all this while.

If even the students need to be given a qi “boost” to get them started, then those who are sick need this even more. Those with chronic diseases would otherwise need many hours of practise before they can start feeling the qi moving their body. To jumpstart the healing process, the master would have to transmit his qi to the patient. This charging by the master is equivalent to 20 hours of the patient’s own practise, and he does this charging to every patient at every healing session. No wonder his patients improve so fast. And if the patients themselves diligently practise the exercises daily on their own, the healing process will be further accelerated.

To have that much qi to heal people requires the master himself to be supercharged with qi, and so he has to practise a lot everyday. And since he transmit his qi to sick people at the start of every healing session, he also has to remove their “bad” qi, which means he has to “detox” (cleansing) himself for 1 hour after every healing session.

While most qigong exercise for cancer require the patients to recharge the healing qi by themselves, which will take time, in qigong cancer therapy, the master attempts to help the patient by “jumpstarting” the healing process with high doses of his own qi. In the process, he also unblocks the flow of stagnated qi (which is bound to exist in an unhealthy person) and also removes the bad or toxic qi as well.

The patient then continues with her own practice to build-up the healing qi further. The more often qigong healing is done, and the more often the patient does her own practice, the faster will be the recovery. Although qigong masters can also channel the universal qi to the patient just as other energy-healing methods, the healing effect is much slower compared to healing with the masters’ own internal qi, which condensed and focused before being transferred to the patient. For patients with advanced cancer, time is short and intensive therapy sessions are required.

The patients themselves may be too weak to do the self-healing exercises sufficiently, and must depend on the master to initiate the healing. However, the healing master can only give so much qi to any patient, as it is at his own expense. Thus, much of the healing depends on the patients’ own practice. Those who are committed to full recovery must do many hours a day.

Master Tan KS has allowed me to write about him so that this style will be known and there will be successors after him who will continue to practise and teach this advanced healing qigong style; and so that thousands more sick people can be helped. And if you are ready to sweat, it is fun to do also!
