About Me

I am a registered pharmacist and a qigong therapist/instructor based in Penang, Malaysia. I am also the representative of the Federation of Malaysia Zhineng Qigong Societies to the Traditional & Complementary Medicine Division of the Malaysia Ministry of Health.
I started practising Zhineng Qigong in 1997 because of a knee injury which the physician said needed surgery. I spent 15-20 minutes a day practicing Wall Squats and a little Lift Qi Up half-heartedly and the knee somehow turned better miraculously… In early February 1999, I had a severe renal colic and was rushed to the hospital in the middle of the night. I had a surgery to remove the stag-horn in the left kidney. The surgeon told me that the filtration function of the left kidney had probably gone down to only 10% and if it could recover to 30% six months later then it would be great. He added one extra sentence: “Don’t worry, one kidney is good enough for you to live up to a hundred.” Well, I was wondering – if one kidney would give me a hundred, if I had both then I should get 200, right? I started reading Dr Pang’s books and started practicing seriously in the hospital.
On July 1999, I started Island Zhineng Qigong Centre. I had a radioactive kidney function test 6 months after the surgery and the surgeon was shocked to learn that the function had gone back to 95%. He said it must have been a mistake and asked me to redo it. I refused, the procedure cost a bomb and the room was extremely cold.
In 2000, I started to conduct various Upgrading and Teacher Training Classes, as well as, started to give public lectures on Zhineng Qigong and published the Elementary Guide to Zhineng Qigong. In 2005, I started qigong healing service at my pharmacy. Some patients are confused whether this is a pharmacy or a qigong clinic. In the same year, I was invited by the Chi Neng Institute to teach in The Netherlands. Subsequently I also taught for the Chi Neng Institute Sweden and was invited by the Haola Qigong group to teach in Germany and Austria. Currently, I am planning to run a qigong clinical trial on asthmatics with a local university here.

    Do you have any kind of contact info from Dr Pang Ming? I was trying to find something in order to contact him and discuss, but cannot seem to find anything.

    • Kean Hin says:

      Sorry, I have no contact with Dr Pang. As far as I know Dr Pang is in retirement for now. Anyway all his teachings are already in his books.

  13. Franky says:

  14. Willy says:

    What qigong practise is good for the kidney.

  15. roz says:

    Dear Kean Hin. I have gone thru few months of reading regarding Zhineng Qigong. I am myself a cancer patient and also looking for help. It is sad to know that so many people all over the world are cashing in on Prof Pang Mings teaching and research while he is not allowed to show his face to the world,,,,the creator of Zhineng.It is normal that people should be allowed to make money from what they learn, but some have gone out of line. I appreciate your page. I hope I can call you

    • Kean Hin says:

      Yes, you can call me. However please note that I am in Malaysia.. so please make sure you do not call in the middle of the nite.

  16. MO says:

  17. ollie says:

    What qigong helps best to cure tinnitus/ringing ears?

    • Kean Hin says:

      In our view, there are 2 major forms of tinnitus. It is difficult to comment without having a look.
      Anyway, practice correctly, qigong exercises will improve the general health.

    I’m in my 20’s now and I’m suffering from hair loss especially around the crown. Can qi gong help to restore hair growth?

    • Kean Hin says:

      Sorry for the extremely late reply. We have handled some cases of hair-loss but it is not possible to suggest anything without having a look at you to ascertain the cause. We provide distance consultation through video Skype. If you are interested, email: okhpen@gmail.com

  19. Dear Kean Hin, it seems often said (mostly by people who do weight training) in the West that it’s unsafe to have the lower back curving outwards during a squat, but to instead curve it inwards (so the bum sticks out) or have it straight at least. In Zhineng Qigong I was taught to bend it outwards. Could you please clarify if there’s a safety issue with how you curve the back during the squat?

    Many thanks

    I’m working in an International school in Penang and we’re doing a Mental Health Week at the end of September. I was wondering if you’re able to perhaps give a short talk about how Qi Gong is suitable for all ages and can help adolescents manage their stress/anxiety/depression. Also perhaps you can do a short Qi Gong session with some students?

    If it’s possible, do get in touch with me. Thank you!

    • Kean Hin says:

      Please provide info on date, time, venue and the age-group.
      We are preparing to start a i-Therapy clinical trial with a school at the end of September, pretty tight schedule.

      Thanks for the invitation.

    Dear Kean,

    I would like to learn Zhineng Qigong. Can you point to the right books. I want to have complete series from Level 1 to Level 3. It seems not all of Dr.Pang’s books have been translated to english. I am looking for Dr Pang’s books or direct translations. Thank you

  22. Yen says:

    Hi KH,
    May I know what’s the main difference between medical qi gong and zhineng qi gong?

    Zhineng qi gong suitable for who?

    • Kean Hin says:

      As far as I know, medical qigong is a form of qigong mainly for healing purposes. However, healing is just an incidental part in Zhineng qigong.

      Zhineng qigong is much more than healing, perhaps we can say that it is like Walmart or Tesco, you can get anything you want, be it a pen knife or a electric saw.

      Walmart/Tesco are suitable for most people because they can to pick what they want 😉

    Hi Master Kean Hin, I would like to learn Zi Gong from the very basic. Do you have any beginner class for someone like me who has no experience at all in Zi Gong?

  26. Tricia LOH says:

    Good day Master Kean Hin. My name is Tricia Loh and I am the Head of Sales of the Penang Convention & Exhibition Bureau (PCEB). I am in contact with the International Health Qigong Federation in bid to put up the International Health Qigong Tournament & Exchange in Penang. This tournament had never been held in Malaysia and we think it is the an imminently important time now to promote Qigong to Malaysians. I would like to check if I work on this together with you to bring the tournament to Malaysia
