Perhaps the foremost living representative
of qigong, Dr. Yan Xin (pronounced Yan Shin, Yan is the family name) is helping lead the way toward a reconciliation of
Eastern and Western approaches through rigorous scientific examination of
the "qi" phenomenon. Since the beginning of the renewed interest
in qigong in early 1980s, Dr. Yan Xin, a senior attending physician and
renowned qigong grandmaster, has always been engaged in the exploration of the scientific
nature of Traditional Chinese Qigong.
Dr. Yan Xin was born in 1950 in the Chinese province of
Sichuan. Many books about his work have been produced by a number of
editors and organizations. His invited lectures at many places throughout
the world draw audiences in the thousands (at Tsinghua
University) (at Harvard
University), and he has met with
representatives from many different circles in the world, including US President George
US President Bill Clinton, and Canadian Prime Minister Jean
Chretien. He has
been honored by the State of California and the City of Houston, Texas as
an "Honorary Citizen." President George
Bush praised him as "a sage of our times."
Begining at an early age, Dr. Yan Xin studied and practiced
Traditional Chinese Qigong and healing art under the tutelage of many accomplished qigong and
medical practitioners in medical, martial art and other circles. Later he
started systematic education in Western medicine and subsequently
graduated from the Chengdu Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
A growing reputation as a "miracle doctor" took
Dr. Yan Xin from clinics, hospitals and research institute in Sichuan, through
travels across China, to Beijing and many countries around the world. He
has employed medicine and Traditional Chinese Qigong therapuetically in thousands of cases,
including curing cardiovascular and neurological disease, and achieving
significant improvements or cures in some cases of cancer and even AIDS.
Many patients are drawn by his success in curing certain conditions
that have not responded to other treatment.
A wide range of health
benefits may also be realized through individual practice of Yan Xin
Qigong techniques, including improvements in the body's circulatory,
respiratory, digestive, endocrine, muscular, skeletal and immune systems.
Dr. Yan Xin has been invited to different places around the
world to conduct academic activities in medicine and qigong life science.
Among them, the 1997 International Yan Xin Qigong Practice and Research
Conference held in New York City in 1997 attracted more than 2,500
scholars, professionals and other delegates from throughout the world.
Beginning in the 1980s, Dr. Yan Xin has also conducted
series of landmark medicine and life science exploration in collaboration
with researchers from leading universities in China and the U.S. (with
scientists at Tsinghua University, Chinese
Academy of Sciences and the University of
Illinois). These experiments in life science and physical sciences provide the first
concrete scientific corroboration for the scientific exploration of
Traditional Chinese Qigong: that with a highly accomplished qigong
master such as Dr. Yan Xin, the vital human life force, or "qi,"
can be projected out of
the body and affect physical substances and objects. For example, the
effects of Dr. Yan Xin's qi emissions have been measured on proteins, enzymes
and DNA under laboratory conditions. (More about Yan Xin Qigong scientific research.)
