Since 1987, Frantzis has taught chi gung, martial arts, TAO yoga, TAO meditation, and energetic-healing therapies to over 15,000 students in the United States and Europe. His teaching methods are spread by a growing number of certified instructors that he has trained in the United States and Europe.
Frantzis is the author of several widely praised books about the power of chi including: "Tai Chi: Health for Life; "the chi gung books, "Opening the Energy Gates of Your Body "and the" Dragon and Tiger Medical Chi Gung Instruction Manual; "and two volumes on the water method of TAO meditation," Relaxing Into Your Being" and "The Great Stillness," Two CDs, "The Tao of Letting Go" and "Ancient Songs of the Tao," shed valuable insights into the power of TAO Meditation in helping people let go of their deepest emotional blockages and move closer to becoming truly alive, balanced and joyful.
When Frantzis moved to China to follow the Taoist path of warrior/healer/priest, he was extensively trained in the chi principles and practices that are the basis of Chinese medicine. From 1974 to 1979, he trained with high-level chi gung tui na (therapeutic energy work) doctors and apprenticed under their tutelage in Chinese medical clinics. He learned to use chi to help heal a wide range of conditions including broken bones, nerve and organ damage and cancer. He also gained an advanced acupuncture degree.
Frantzis used these chi principles andpractices to dramatically heal himself: first from a life-threatening form of hepatitis in India and more dramatically from massive spine injuries that he received in a car accident in 1981.
Frantzis' experiences have made him a teacher with a mission: teaching people how the ancient and proven self-healing chi practices can help them achieve health, relaxation, inner peace and longevity. He aims to help avert a major health crisis that threatens to engulf the Western world.
