The healing Tao is a practical system of self qi development that enables the individual to complete the harmonious evolution of the physical, mental and spiritual planes.

Through a series of ancient Chinese meditative and internal qi exercises, the practitioner learns to increase physical energy, release tension, improve health, practice self-defense, and gain the ability to heal oneself and others. In the process of creating a solid foundation of health and well-being in the physical body, the basis for developing one's spiritual potential is also created. While learning to tap the natural Qi of the sun, moon, earth and stars, a level of awareness is attained in which a solid spiritual body is developed and nurtured.

The ultimate goal of the Tao practice is the transcendence of physical boundaries through the development of the soul and the spirit within man.

Healing Tao Warm Current Meditation, as these practices are also known, awakens, circulates, directs, and preserves the generative life-force called Qi through the major acupuncture meridians of the body. Dedicated practice of this ancient esoteric system eliminates stress and nervous tension, massages the internal organs, and restores. health to damaged tissues.
