Whilst the approach of Clearwater Qi arts has been informed by training in several different styles of Qigong, extended study of Classical Chinese texts and over a decade of clinical underststanding of Chinese medical theory, the main source of the material that I teach come from Bruce Frantzis who trained in depth with several of the greatest modern Qigong practioners in China. My approach has been particularly influenced by one of his oldest European students Giovanni Maschio who was based in Oxford for many years, and his oldest American student Bill Ryan who teaches in the UK annually.
