“Master Chunyi Lin has developed an easy-to-follow program”
“Like yoga, qigong teaches you to balance energy in your body. Master Chunyi Lin has developed an easy-to-follow program that will allow you to incorporate the health benefits of qigong into your daily life.”
Bill Manahan, M.D., Assistant Professor of Family Practice and Community Health, University of Minnesota Medical School
“Spring Forest Qigong is going to revolutionize the manner in which we look at healing.”
“I would place qigong equal in importance to the incredible discoveries in the forties called antibiotics and in the fifties called immunizations. I think Spring Forest Qigong is basically the way much of healing will go over the next 50 to100 years. Over this past century, we have focused on looking at a smaller and smaller picture down to the genetic level. It is now time to also move in a different direction and learn more about the bigger picture–the energy–the chi that comprises who we are. It starts with the belief that many of us have that we are basically energetic beings. This belief has been around for centuries, but just recently has it become more popular in America. Qigong can be both healing and curative in its own right, and it can be quite complementary to what we do in Western medicine, whether having surgery or being treated for high cholesterol. Spring Forest Qigong is going to revolutionize the manner in which we look at healing.”

“Master Lin has an outstanding reputation as a practitioner and teacher of Spring Forest Qigong, a unique form of this tradition which is especially accessible to the practitioner. People of all ages, from all walks of life, and every level of skill, have taken and benefited from his courses. I have taken two levels of his training. I know of several of my patients who have seen him for qigong therapy with as good results as I.”

On Chunyi Lin and Spring Forest Qigong
[excerpt] ” .. what I really like about his work is that he’s mainly a teacher. And so it’s nice that he’s taking care of individual patients, but he’s teaching thousands of people to within themselves figure out how to do qigong. And that’s what’s really important.”
Bart Main, M.D., Chief of Psychiatry, Human Services, Washington County, Minnesota “Highest medical ethics” “Mr. Lin’s practice of traditional Chinese medicine, known as Qigong, is exemplary. His respect and straightforwardness with patients upholds the highest medical ethics. His outcomes treating respiratory disease and cancer I have observed to be quite remarkable. Mr. Lin is the most dedicated teacher I have seen in a long time. Mr. Lin communicates clearly and is rapidly developing students into teachers of Qigong.”
Greg Gerber, MD, Chief of Internal Medicine at SW Memorial Hospital, Houston, Texas
On Benefits of Spring Forest Qigong Practice
[excerpt] “The benefits [with SFQ] for most of the people I’ve seen are fantastic–absolutely remarkable. Diabetes, glucose control, hypertension–I’ve seen some folks reversing other longer-standing arthritis–all of these are on the list of what I’ve seen in my clinical practice being reversed. [Dr. Gerber also explains the physiological changes that take place in the body with Spring Forest Qigong that make it so beneficial.]
Frances Gaik, Psy. D., Psychologist, Oak Brook, Illinois, Author of: “A Preliminary Study Applying Spring Forest Qigong to Depression as an Alternative and Complementary Treatment”
“Extremely effective in the treatment of depression, including bipolar subjects.”
“I have done a full and comprehensive study of the various qigong methods and techniques as part of my research for the qigong/depression study. I have found that the SFQ technique which Chunyi Lin has developed is easy for individuals to practice and yet it incorporates a full spectrum of the various movements for health. I have taught the technique in clinical settings as well and found it was well accepted by both patients and mental health practitioners. The SFQ technique was extremely effective in the treatment of depression, including bipolar subjects, and was especially instrumental in manifesting a greater sense of self and positive connection with the world. I would highly recommend the use of SFQ in the treatment of depression, anxiety, anger management, attention deficit disorder, and to enhance self esteem. ”

“A very powerful approach to human health”
“I became acquainted with Chunyi Lin approximately seven years ago when I saw him give a talk at a symposium on breast cancer. Since that time I’ve enrolled in two of his classes and learned a lot about qigong from him. And it is clear to me that Chunyi Lin is a very powerful practitioner of this important method of dealing with human energies. This practice has a lot to offer in that the way qigong is practiced and taught by Chunyi Lin is a very powerful approach to human health. While I could give specific examples of this, I think the most important concept that needs to be kept in mind with qigong is that individuals may practice this for health, for well being, and for prevention of disease. I also know that with time and with research, qigong will likely be shown to have important impact on not just the immune system but on many other components of what we recognize as critical physiologic systems in human health. I hope that I will be able to work with Chunyi Lin in doing some of that research. I also hope that we will see many other research programs throughout this country and throughout the world begin to evaluate qigong in the same way as we have evaluated other kinds of more traditional western medicines. In the end, I’m convinced that we will see important evidence that this is a strong and critical alternative or complementary therapy for humans in the maintenance of health and even in the stabilization of disease.”

“Strongly recommend Master Lin and Spring Forest Qigong.”

“Spring Forest Qigong is the most remarkable and profound experience of health and healing I have ever discovered.”
“Spring Forest Qigong is the most remarkable and profound experience of health and healing I have ever discovered. I have searched for many, many years both personally and professionally to find ways to help myself and others bring balance and holistic health to our lives. I found what I was looking for all those years in Spring Forest Qigong. With that first class I knew immediately that qigong had power that other modalities did not because I could feel something different. Then in just two or three weeks I could literally feel the energy. I could feel a lot of it. It is humbling to look back and see the level of mental health I was accepting as normal. That is no way to live.”
