What is it? This is a QiGong healing practice developed by Master Ou.
Qi means Life Force,
Gong means cultivation or study of:
qigong means cultivation of life force.
Although the practice of Qigong was banned in China due to political reasons- we are very fortunate that Master Ou now lives in the USA with his family and travels the world teaching.

The PGSG Healing Technique is based on the principle of receiving healing Qi from the universe and Source. PanGu is Chinese for creator. It is very much like Reiki- the story is different, and as a practitioner of both, I find the PangShengong healing to be more powerful, more direct. Although there are three different hand motions- touching the body is not necessary. Repeating the Pass Words is:
Take Kindness and Benevolence as Basis,
Take Frankness and Friendliness to Heart
Speak with Reason, Treat with Courtesy
Act with Emotion, Accomplish Result
As you sit there repeating these phrases, with palms facing up, you are receiving healing Qi. You can do this any time to bring you healing energy. Receiving Qi is not as strong as getting a healing from a certified PGSG healer or doing the Moving Form, but it is very calming and a great beginning. I teach this to anyone willing to learn and practice. These phrases are great to teach children regarding how to treat each other and respect themselves.
I often incorporate Sound Healing during a PGSG healing.
Working with Lyme disease: a case report
Marilyn had been to my office years ago seeking bereavement counselling. After a few months, upon leaving therapy, she stated, ‘You opened the French doors for me!” (There are French doors leading to my office.)
Ten years later, she called again requesting help for depression; she was suffering from Lyme disease. Despite the prevalence of Lyme disease in New England, it took two years to find a physician who would listen to her. The internist treated her with bio nutrients to cleanse and support the body, as well as ongoing antibiotics. Physically she was responding well. For the first time in two years she was able to get out of bed. However, when she came to my office, Marilyn admitted she had stopped taking the antidepressants 6 months ago-‘I felt better, I didn’t think I needed them.’ She looked and felt very depressed, was paranoid, hallucinating and fearful of being home alone.
Marilyn’s internist referred her to a massage therapist to help with energy patterns. The intervention of the massage therapist ‘scared’ my client- ‘She said there were dark energies in my house and I have a gift for mediumship.’ I referred Marilyn back to her psychiatrist immediately, we conferred and agreed Marilyn was suffering from Major Depression with psychotic features. Since that time, Marilyn has been compliant with a low dose of appropriate psychotropic medications- within weeks she was looking much better, regained her sense of humor, and hope. People around her noted the difference and said so.
Meanwhile, I taught her the PangGu Shengong Moving Form. Over the course of 8 months, she increased her practice time from x1 daily to x3. The more she practiced, the better she felt and was able to handle significant family stresses without depleting inner resources. We both noted that with consistent practice she felt better both physically and emotionally. Marilyn noted that saying the PGSG passwords and doing the Moving Form ‘calmed the mind’.
Marilyn learned and practiced other tools to keep herself healthier, improved compliance with medical intervention and was open to different perspectives of self-care. Her confidence improved and no longer needs weekly therapy. Empowerment is a powerful tool.
After a hiatus of a couple months, during which time she had been taken off one of the antibiotics, she came in for a consult. We discussed the effects of her being on just one antibiotic- the fatigue and lethargy had resumed as well as the need for daily naps, therefore resumed the discontinued antibiotic. Marilyn was not practicing the PGSG with any regularity, but managing significant family stresses. She was maintaining the diet change, us of bio-nutrients and psychotropics. It appeared the long term use of antibiotic is keeping the Lyme at bay, but not curing it. I suggested she do some research regarding the effectiveness of medicinal herbs for Lyme disease and increase the PGSG Moving Form to four times daily to improve her immune system.
Another therapist, who also does energy healing, asked how was I so sure Marilyn was having hallucinations and not experiencing a psychic sensitivity? I replied, “Knowing the client and knowing the difference between an underlying or active psychotic process and having psychic ability is critical in doing energy work.” Not all visions are hallucinations, but it is important to be able to discern the difference. Health care providers need to know to whom to refer for the client to get appropriate help. Each discipline has its areas of effectiveness, as professionals, we work as a team.
Another aspect of Lyme disease is that despite the need to keep the body moving, over exertion can have a negative effect; the Lyme kicks up, and if the bacteria are not treated, whether with herbs or traditional medicine, the system weakens quickly and painfully. Lyme disease affects the weakest point in anyone’s system, be it physical, emotional or neurological. My experience with Marilyn has reinforced my commitment to treating the mind, body, spirit holistically; teach effective strategies and empower the client.
