I visited Dr. Chow the first time in 1994 shortly after having surgery to remove a cancer tumor in my throat. I refused the radiation treatment simply because for one I couldn't afford it and for two I didn't care to go through the very traumatizing experience and be left with no hair on one side of my face and no saliva glands in that side of my mouth. I also held a firm conviction that it really wasn't necessary as long as I took the right steps to treat whatever cancer was left in my body. Qigong was just one of the steps that I decided on for my cancer recovery. Since I was also involved with Reiki, hypnosis, NLP, herbs, and worked with a personal coach on my thought and speech patterns, one cannot say which one of these modalities was the most effective, but I like to think Qigong as presented by Dr. Chow was the most effective.
My ""treatments"" included five simple exercises that I was to perform three times a day. Twice a week I visited Dr. Chow who treated me with acupuncture. Prior to the acupuncture treatments I was to meditate with a specific posture and with a specific breathing pattern. I shall not say that the exercises were easy. They are simple, but when one has to go through dozens of repetitions of each exercise while breathing in a particular way, it is at first very tiring. After a few weeks, I was surprised to find how easy it was to finish all the exercises and feel more energetic afterwards.
Once again in 2003 I found myself at her doorstep after having a triple heart bypass. In a matter of hours she had me running around the room as though nothing had happened to me. I only wish I had not stopped seeing her when I did.
My deepest affections go out to Dr. Chow and her work. I am deeply grateful for all she has done for me. Her work continues to be a guiding light in my life.

Dr. Chow is a truly incredible healer that has gotten results when all else has failed. I've seen examples of her relieving decade-long pain within minutes. From the common cold to working with cancer she has dealt with everything. After reading some of the cases she has worked on it is no wonder she has been praised all over the world for her work. Even conditions such as Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS), cancer, diabetes, stroke, quadriplegia and other where Western medicine has only been able to scratch the surface on; Dr. Chow has gotten results. Highly recommended!
