24 Postures Therapeutic Qigong

The Therapeutic Qigong system began as 20 postures designed by Dr. Zi-Ping Wang and systemized in 1958 by Dr. Wu Ching-De. The
system, also known as Chinese Yoga, is based on ancient Qigong exercises and incorporates clinical experiences from Dr’s. Zi-Ping and Wu. The movements are time proven and have been used as treatments in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for centuries.

The original design of the 20 postures was modified by Grand Master Helen Wu, Dr. Wu’s daughter and Dr. Zi-Ping’s granddaughter by
adding 4 additional moves for the current system of 24 postures. The system has benefited thousands of practitioners in more than 6 decades since it was introduced.

The focus of the postures follows the human spine, the nervous system, through the neck, shoulders, back, lower limbs, & feet.

Common Benefits of Regular Practice:

• Assist with rehabilitation for chronic conditions such as: cancer recovery, arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, Parkinson’s issues, and regulates normal body functions.
• Improved health and flexibility
• Relief of neck, back, shoulder, hip, and/or knee pain
