Qigong Master Pang Early Years
Master Pang was born in 1940 in Hebei province in China. He studied western medicine at Beijing Medical College in 1958. Thereafter, he engaged in western medical practice.
From 1958 to 1962 Pang studied Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Beijing Traditional Chinese Medicine Association. He then began to integrate Chinese and Western medicine into clinical practice.
Since his college age, Pang had studied Buddhism, Taoism, and martial arts, and had followed a total of 19 grandmasters of Buddhist, Taoist, Confucian, folk qigong, martial arts, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Master Pang Created Scientific QiGong Early ’80s
Master Pang laoshi is such an erudite, humble and open person. For him, creating Zhi Neng Qi Gong was not a coincidence.
Pang’s full knowledge of western and Chinese medicine including acupuncture, Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian qigong, martial arts, Chinese culture, and history… all of them enabled him to see the bigger picture than anyone else in history so far.
In his late 30s, Master Pang had started to reform traditional qi gong and then created new scientific qigong. His total reformed qi gong forms and caused a big “earthquake” to the qigong society and yet started a new era of qigong science culture.
Hundreds of modern qigong forms were born during the Chinese qigong’s golden era (1970- 2000). At that time, hundreds of millions of Chinese people exercised qigong in their backyard, in the park, and on the street. Even some ancient traditional forms were picked up.
Qigong Master Pang Ming had many students who learned his scientific qigong and then created their own during that time.

From what he wrote in those five books, you will notice that he had transformed from Qigong theory and methods study to self-awareness practice and consciousness study.
Most people start qigong because they had body health issues or mental health issues. You have to understand that qigong healing is just at the surface level. Because in Pang’s latest books, he quoted more than a dozen times that 悟后真修, which means that real practice starts after self-realization.
In 2018, Onenergy founder, one of Pang Lao Shi’s former students, Master Dai, as well as Onenergy coach Delphine Zhu met Dr. Pang Ming Laoshi in person in Beijing China. Pang encouraged Master Dai to innovate Qigong teaching and bring Qigong wisdom to more people.
