Soaring Crane Qigong was introduced to the world in 1979 by Master Zhao Jin-Xiang. With thousands of qigong forms available, Soaring Crane Qigong rapidly became (and remains) one of the most popular forms in China, with well over 20,000,000 people practicing. The reasons are many: The Five Routines of Soaring Crane Qigong are easily learned, students begin to notice changes in mind, body, and spirit shortly after beginning practice, and it is one of the most effective forms of medical qigong practiced today.
Historically, qigong developed in China along four primary lines: to increase physical prowess, to increase life span, to improve one's health, and to give one access to one's own spirituality. Soaring Crane Qigong, while emphasizing the restoration and maintenance of health, draws from all of these historic lines. As a result, a practitioner's entire being is affected.
Master Zhao, founder of Soaring Crane Qigong, had become ill with pleurisy and tuberculosis as a teenager and was eventually able to cure himself by practicing the qigong taught to him while in a sanitarium. His continued practice led to insights and understandings from which he developed Soaring Crane Qigong.
