Chris Shelton, a certified qigong practitioner and teacher, is also an author, professional speaker, workshop leader, and an award-winning martial artist.
Chris first experienced the powerful effects of qigong while recovering from a devastating back injury as a teenager. In 1988, after studying with some of the most revered Chinese medicine masters, he started his own medical qigong practice. He now teaches self-healing techniques to a range of ages, skill levels, and abilities—from youth to Special Olympic athletes to professional fighters.
At the Morning Crane Healing Arts Center, which he opened in 2000 in Willow Glen, California, Chris teaches kickboxing, qigong, and tai chi, and treats clients using traditional medical qigong practices.
Due to the outstanding results his clients have experienced, he has been interviewed on Showtime, UFC, and NBC Sports, among other media outlets.
He was the 2010 Tiger Claw grand champion in tai chi and has been featured in Kung Fu Magazine. He is the author of Qigong for Self-Refinement: Total Health with the 5 Elements and works alongside his wife, Parisa Shelton, to promote the beneficial effects of qigong.
