Qigong means “working with Qi"(commonly known as energy). It is a science of using the breath, body, mind, and sound to Achieve and Maintain Perfect Health.  


Its deep roots set it apart. Spring Forest Qigong Level One – Qi Activation is not your standard Qigong practice class. Rather, it is comprehensive training fully encompassing the ancient science of Qigong. This training grounds you firmly in that tradition while helping you understand the mystery and secrets of Qigong Healing.



  • Use and direct your Qi with Qigong.
  • What is Emptiness? How to prepare yourself to enter the Emptiness.
  • How to connect with and tap into a greater energy than your own.
  • Five Element Qigong and its healing wisdom as the Physical Movements.
  • Small Universe Meditation as the Internal Refinement.
  • Experience the powerful combination of Qi & Yi.
  • How to engage breath, sound, movements, and mind in Qigong practice.
  • The Yin and Yang of Qigong.
  • Qigong healing principles, such as Qi Blockages and how they form.
  • Plus, a Special Bonus… Sword Fingers, a Qigong healing technique to help yourself and others to heal.

Henry Gerstman, Qigong Trainer


My name is Henry Gerstman.  I had a working career as an accountant with an MBA degree, and I am also an artist with an MFA degree in art, as well as an undergraduate degree in architecture.  I live with my wife in suburban New Jersey, 30 minutes from New York City. I found Spring Forest Qigong after reading Master Lin's book in 2012, Born A Healer: I Was Born A Healer, and You Were Born A Healer Too." The wisdom of Master Lin has brought me a deeper understating of the mystery of life in our universe and on our planet earth. With this Qi Activation course you will learn Qigong healing movements and meditations, that will also bring joy, happiness, peace, contentment, and gratitude into your life, as it has done for me.  I am now a Certified Practice Group Leader, and a Certified Trainer, and intend to always teach and practice the blessings of Spring Forest Qigong. I warmly welcome you to my Qi Activation class, and hope to see you soon. Thank you, Namaste.



Love Notes from Henry's Students


Kind, Compassionate & Loving Teacher

Henry has been helping me to turn my life around for several years.  I was sick when I met him, now I am healthy. He has helped me to create a new life, with more love and positivity and less depression. As he teaches the Qigong movements and leads us in a live zoom meeting every Wednesday, I have become more of the person that I wish to be. His knowledge, kindness, spirituality and experience have influenced me in ways that are so positive that it’s hard to find the words to express my gratitude.  He has taught me to love myself and be kinder to myself, and this has changed my family. Once full of negative, angry feelings, Henry has shown me loving kindness, which then flows into my family. He is a kind, patient, compassionate and empathetic teacher. The Universe provided me the perfect teacher.

-Alice (student of Henry)

Incredibly Healing Teacher

“I can only say that Henry has given me the ability to see the world and universe thru different eyes. I now feel so grateful for everything in my life, from my family to my mailman. Henry has been a blessing in my life. I find myself repeating the words, Joy, joy joy during the day, to remind myself to be joyful. I am joyful that he is my teacher. With loving kindness and of course JOY."

-Laura  (student of Henry)
