On Chunyi Lin and Spring Forest Qigong
[excerpt] " .. what I really like about his work is that he's mainly a teacher.
And so it's nice that he's taking care of individual patients, but he's teaching
thousands of people to within themselves figure out how to do qigong. And that's
what's really important."

On Benefits of Spring Forest Qigong Practice
[excerpt] "The benefits [with SFQ] for most of the people I've seen are fantastic--absolutely
remarkable. Diabetes, glucose control, hypertension--I've seen some folks reversing
other longer-standing arthritis--all of these are on the list of what I've seen
in my clinical practice being reversed. [Dr. Gerber also explains the physiological
changes that take place in the body with Spring Forest Qigong that make it so beneficial.]

Frances Gaik, Psy. D., Psychologist,
Oak Brook, Illinois, Author of: "A Preliminary Study Applying Spring Forest
Qigong to Depression as an Alternative and Complementary Treatment"
"Extremely effective in the treatment of depression, including bipolar subjects."
"I have done a full and comprehensive study of the various qigong methods and
techniques as part of my research for the qigong/depression study. I have found
that the SFQ technique which Chunyi Lin has developed is easy for individuals to
practice and yet it incorporates a full spectrum of the various movements for health.
I have taught the technique in clinical settings as well and found it was well accepted
by both patients and mental health practitioners. The SFQ technique was extremely
effective in the treatment of depression, including bipolar subjects, and was especially
instrumental in manifesting a greater sense of self and positive connection with
the world. I would highly recommend the use of SFQ in the treatment of depression,
anxiety, anger management, attention deficit disorder, and to enhance self esteem.

"Spring Forest Qigong is going to revolutionize the manner in which we look
"I would place qigong equal in importance to the incredible discoveries in the forties
called antibiotics and in the fifties called immunizations. I think Spring Forest
Qigong is basically the way much of healing will go over the next 50 to100 years.
Over this past century, we have focused on looking at a smaller and smaller picture
down to the genetic level. It is now time to also move in a different direction
and learn more about the bigger picture--the energy--the chi that comprises who
we are. It starts with the belief that many of us have that we are basically energetic
beings. This belief has been around for centuries, but just recently has it become
more popular in America. Qigong can be both healing and curative in its own right,
and it can be quite complementary to what we do in Western medicine, whether having
surgery or being treated for high cholesterol. Spring Forest Qigong is going to
revolutionize the manner in which we look at healing."

"A very powerful approach to human health"
"I became acquainted with Chunyi Lin approximately seven years ago when I saw him
give a talk at a symposium on breast cancer. Since that time I've enrolled in two
of his classes and learned a lot about qigong from him. And it is clear to me that
Chunyi Lin is a very powerful practitioner of this important method of dealing with
human energies. This practice has a lot to offer in that the way qigong is practiced
and taught by Chunyi Lin is a very powerful approach to human health. While I could
give specific examples of this, I think the most important concept that needs to
be kept in mind with qigong is that individuals may practice this for health, for
well being, and for prevention of disease. I also know that with time and with research,
qigong will likely be shown to have important impact on not just the immune system
but on many other components of what we recognize as critical physiologic systems
in human health. I hope that I will be able to work with Chunyi Lin in doing some
of that research. I also hope that we will see many other research programs throughout
this country and throughout the world begin to evaluate qigong in the same way as
we have evaluated other kinds of more traditional western medicines. In the end,
I'm convinced that we will see important evidence that this is a strong and critical
alternative or complementary therapy for humans in the maintenance of health and
even in the stabilization of disease."

the practitioner. People of all ages, from all walks of life, and every level of
skill, have taken and benefited from his courses. I have taken two levels of his

with as good results as I."

"Spring Forest Qigong is the most remarkable and profound experience of health and
healing I have ever discovered."
"Spring Forest Qigong is the most remarkable and profound experience of health and
healing I have ever discovered. I have searched for many, many years both personally
and professionally to find ways to help myself and others bring balance and holistic
health to our lives. I found what I was looking for all those years in Spring Forest
Qigong. With that first class I knew immediately that qigong had power that other
modalities did not because I could feel something different. Then in just two or
three weeks I could literally feel the energy. I could feel a lot of it. It is humbling
to look back and see the level of mental health I was accepting as normal. That
is no way to live."
