In 1995 Rick was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Western medicine and multiple alternative modalities did not relieve his symptoms. He began practicing Zhineng (Chi-Lel) Qigong in 2001, while living in Santa Fe. Since then he has been symptom free and in excellent health. In 2004 Rick and his family moved to New Zealand, where he continued his practice. He studied with Sandy Jiang (Blue Sky Zhineng Qigong Studio) and became certified to teach. Rick is in his 70s, has a 17-year-old daughter, and lives in Dallas. He is medication free.
