introduction into the world of Qigong occurred as a result of my own
search for healing outside of traditional western medicine. In 1995,
while focusing on my career in film/video production, I broke my right
ankle several times and then the left ankle. Then I developed acute
tendonitis in both wrists from the crutches I had been forced to use.
Eventually I was in a wheel chair for a short period of time. As a
result of various therapies I underwent, I managed to recover but not
totally. My doctors advised that I would not fully recover because of
some "unknown" genetic condition.
