'All my life I was in a wheelchair. After 47 years and one session of Chow Qigong I stood up and took three steps. After the second session I walked 25 feet with a little help. Now I use a pushcart to walk, cook my own meals, go out on dates and love to dance. I continue to practice Qigong faithfully to maintain my accomplishments.'
'ln 1991 an accident left me quadriplegic which medical doctors said was hopeless. After 3 months of Chow Qigong in 1996 1 am walking with a walker. I continue to practice and to improve.
