Below are a just few of the thousands of testimonials we have gotten over the last 20 years…..
My name is Charlene Nichol and I a grateful member of the Chi Gong class here at Zen Wellness. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about a year ago and have been suffering with widespread pain, stiffness and fatigue for over two years. I had not been able to work or even have much of a social life with friends and family. I felt depressed and angry that I my life had been taken away from me. I was told by my Dr., Dr. Keller, to give Chi gong a try.
I have to admit I was very skeptical at first, I did not think that I could do it and I wasn’t sure that “martial arts” could do anything for me. In six months I have change so much. I have learned that I can harness that energy in me to get me through my day. I have increased my strength and stamina in standing, in my arms, and even decreased pain in my chest and shoulders to a very minimum. I take about half the pain medication that I use to and when my fibromyalgia flares up and I am not able to do much…I know that it will pass and I can get through it. My disease will never go away…but my life is good.
Than you to my instructor and to Dr. Keller,
I wanted to send you this note and comment on my experience in the classes I have been attending since the last week of October 2008.
I came to you as sort of a last resort to see if I could help a debilitating back problem I suffer from. I have degenerative arthritis in my lower back. At times it’s hard to walk, sit, sleep or function normally.
After spending thousands of dollars and seeing a total of six doctors over the course of three years I thought I would give Chi Gong, Yoga, and Tai Chi a try.
I’m here to report that my back although not healed is feeling better and better as I progress in my classes. My pain is becoming manageable and I no longer need the pain medication I’ve been taking for some time.
Also your staff and instructors are very professional and make the classes informative and fun.
I also have received my first belt and can’t wait till I earn the next one. To say the least this has very much changed my life. You’ll have this student for a long time to come.

I’ve taken the Chi Fit program with Michael Leone. I feel that it’s going to be a great value to our yoga studio and a wonderful gift to our community, as well as a wonderful art form for me to practice for myself as well as even my family. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m going to continue learning with Michael in the future.

I gained more energy, motivation to get out of the house, flexibility, confidence in voice and in everyday life and at work, a sense of belonging (to a family.)
Thank you Master Campbell!

I was invited to attend this seminar by Master Leone and Master Campbell. I have been involved for a good while now in learning the Zen Wellness and Chi Fit program. I have been implementing the basic portions of that program at our school.
The reason for my attendance at this one is we are taking the next step to further expand this program into the 8 vessels area because we cultivated enough beginning Qi Gong students that it’s time to take them to the next level. In addition, we are also expanding our senior cliental with the Chi Fit program and the medical Qi Gong. This was a terrific weekend. You always hear new additional inspiring information. This weekend was no different from the other times we’ve gotten together except this happens to be an exquisitely beautiful setting. I was able to retain 2 to 3 times more information than normal just because of the location and the fact that it was a very intensive seminar, the best ever so far.

My name is Gloria Trillo, and I am a teacher, and I’ve been a teacher for over 30 years.
About a year ago I started having all sorts of difficulties…arthritis, a lot of pain, injuries just about everywhere…a lot of sleepless nights, a lot of sleep apnea, and then eventually I got diagnosed with a micro-valve regurgitation, a lot of fluid in my lungs, basically, a lot of things were going wrong.
A very good friend of mine at work started telling me about the Tai Chi classes that she was taking, and I had read, through the arthritis magazines about how good it is, so I took her up on her invitation to watch a class.
I saw all sorts of different types of people in the class, young, and old, so I thought I’d give it a try.
After a few days, I thought “wow, I don’t know…” But soon, I started seeing such good results in the way that I was feeling, my energy level was better, my arthritis was going away.
I started to be a lot more flexible, everything just started doing so much better, recently I just saw my pulminologist again and she was very pleasantly surprised.
My lung capacity was now normal, and everything, my arthritis doctor also, the levels of the RA are all good, and I just have been feeling so good.
I have been able to lose a lot of weight along with the Tai Chi, and it has just been a reversal from what was happening a year ago, and the biggest difference is my Tai Chi classes, I just want to say this is the best thing I’ve ever done, and if you are thinking of doing it, you are not going to be wrong in taking these classes. Thank You!

What I liked best about the course was the opportunity to go more deeply into protocols I’ve already been learning and to work with the 8 Vessels. Master Leone’s teaching style is lively and engaging, and he has a tremendous store of knowledge and experience to share – which he does with a lot of humor.
In just two days I could feel my energy level increase. The training also helped me see how I can incorporate qigong and taoist concepts into daily activity so that the practice becomes a way of life.
