About Dame Effie Chow, PhD

Dr. Effie Chow is a world-renowned Qigong Grandmaster energy healer, acupuncturist, author, international speaker, Humanitarian, Futurist, and Visionary. In July 2000, Dr. Chow was appointed by President Clinton to the original 15 member White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy. 

With a career that spans over 40 years, Dr. Effie Chow has been integrating alternative and traditional Chinese medicine with Western clinical practice and policy implementation. In 1973 she founded the East West Academy of Healing Arts (EWAHA) in San Francisco. She is also president and founder of the American Qigong Association and World QIgong Foundation. In 1988 the Qigong Institute was established within EWAHA to promote research and clinical work in Qigong, a component of traditional Chinese medicine that combines movement, meditation, energetic on-site and remote healing and regulation of breathing to enhance the flow of qi, or energy. Dr. Chow has also created the Chow Integrated Healing System/Chow Medical Qigong (CIHS/CMQ) that is practiced by many individuals today.

CIHS/CMQ has succeeded where other treatments have failed.

Dame Effie Chow, PhD Success Stories

Amazing Results Central Peninsula Hospital, Soldotna, AK

A nurse in the community was able to become pain free from a migraine headache that had kept her in bed for three days vomiting.  She had vomited on the way to the program but was determined to try something new.  She was able to become pain free using spontaneous qigong and working with Dr. Chow directing qi and then she in turn directed qi to another participant in the room who also had a migraine and reduced the participant’s pain significantly.  We filmed this exchange between Dr. Chow and the nurse and have posted it on YouTube. This is the link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xo8b-yZ352U
