When she was six years old, she followed her grandfather to practice child Gong and play Hua-Tuo’s animal analogue demonstration. During her many travels, she visited many famous Qi Gongist throughout China.
In 1949, she contracted cancer of the uterus. Even in spite of her numerous operations, the cancer could not be controlled. In her search for a cure, she turned to the old, traditional Chinese treatment of Qi-Gong. She studied various medical books and continuously applied Qi-Gong therapy to cancer healing. After ten years of
research, she developed a new system of Qi-Gong. Her therapy integrates movement with meditation. Her approach proved to be effective and easy to learn.

The essential and typical Oriental theory of Tai Ji, Ying Yang, Si Xiang, Wu Xing (five elements), Ba Gua etc. have been proven through thousands of years of practice, to be scientific and in accordance with the laws of nature. To study, to research and to implement these theories and methods for the health, longevity and recreation of modem society are an important issue of modem science.
The president of Coach Xu Tai Ji Institute, Mr. Xu Jun-Heng, has been engaging in competitive sports, health restoration and preservation practice for thirty-six years, and has accumulated rich and extensive experience through these activities. Especially during the recent six years, he has helped many patients to regain their health and many cancer patients to recuperate. Those weak in physical constitution have become health and strong. Participants strengthened their physique and are able to grasp and utilize the concept of self-regulation and self-balance in order to prevent illness and to preserve health.
Coach Xu Tai Ji Institute maintains:
1. The birth and death of a human being are a long and natural process. If physical and psychological balance is relatively attained, one enjoys health, longevity and high quality of life. On the contrary, one would be sickly, have a shorter life-span and lower quality of life, if imbalance perseveres.
2. Any illness is always caused by the imbalance of the body as a whole. Any partial disorder is the manifestation of the imbalance of the whole body. Thus to cure a disease one must give consideration to that fact.
3. Psychological problem leads to physical changes; physical disorder leads to psychological imbalance. Therefore one’s mind and life-style affect his health to a great extent, and seriously influence the process of treatment and recuperation.
4. According to traditional and modern methods, the treatment of a patient is only an aid to the patient from the outside. Whether the aid can be of help or not relies on the potential of the patient’s body, on its acceptability of the aid.
5. A treatment regulates the body so that the partial or total physical and psychological imbalance ca be restored. Using as healthy diets and physical exercises, are as important as using modern medicine and technology.
6. Actively doing self-regulations with a positive attitude, and be responsive in accepting aid from outside, the combination of above is essential to the patient and only in this way can the treatment be effective and sound. Therefore, it can be said that the best doctor for you is your own self
