Testimonials From Our Students
Read what some of our students have to say about our classes and how it has helped them gain a new lease of life.
Ever since the doctor told me I’ve had hypertension with additional symptoms of high blood cholesterol and high blood sugar, my strength and composure weaken day by day. Having these symptoms during this stage is no easy task as it takes a toll on my body. At first, you think these symptoms are nothing but slowly you’ll begin to experience sore pains coupled with numbness across my body and spells of dizziness and shortness of breath. At that moment, I’ve come to realise that if I don’t take precautions, as pointed out by my doctor, my symptoms appeared to be more cumbersome.
Thankfully, Nam Wah Pai came upon my life. I decided to give this Qigong class a try and remain hopeful that it will make a difference in my health. So, I began training for a month, to a year, and I began to notice slight differences such as an increase in energy levels, reducing the reliance to consume medication, and got all my high symptoms under control. As a result, I’ve never felt younger at my age. A small significance back then is now a huge impact on my life and health. For 10 years now, I’ve been training at Nam Wah Pai and never looked back since.-Ho Chee Seng, 65 years old
Previously, I have attended Ayurvedic massages due to my chronic knee problems. The pain was a nuisance as it disrupted my daily activities and doing simple things like climbing up the stairs.
Gradually, I started to feel more stiffness and swelling and thus seeking out medical health professions to alleviate pain and restore any effects of dysfunctions. As noted from the physiotherapist, this clinical symptom may vary for each individual, however, my injury may progressively be more severe and troublesome over time if without exercise. I needed another 5 sessions of rehabilitation which costs me another few thousand dollars.
As gut-wrenching as to see my healthcare funds rising endlessly, I figured I had no choice until something changed. I came across Nam Wah Pai’s advertisement on The Papers and started having an interest in Qigong and Tai Chi. My inner voice persuaded me to try several sessions and witness the potential difference it can bring into my life.
After a month of training here, I was surprised by the immense change surrounding my chronic knee pains. I’ve reduced weight, I am able to resume my daily activities including climbing up the stairs with lesser pain and improvements.
I saved myself a few thousand dollars from going to the physiotherapy and other costs for my massage sessions. It wasn’t the fact that the treatments weren’t good, it was simply a solution from training at Nam Wah Pai I found that suited me best and the skills I learned will last me a lifetime and benefit my overall health and wellbeing.-Gina, 64 years old
I was suffering from Nocturia, where I had to wake up at least 4 to 5 times a night to urine. My sleep is constantly affected, and I never get more than 2 hours of sleep.
At first, I went to the traditional Chinese physicians as I know the Western doctors will ask me to undergo tests. So, I was prescribed herbs which improved my sleep, and I would wake up at most once a night. For the first time in a long while, I had a slightly better sleep.
But the moment I stopped taking the herbs, my urination problem would come back almost instantly. Finally, I decided to go to the Western doctors and take all the different blood tests, and despite that, they couldn’t find anything wrong with me. The only explanation the doctor could tell me is that I was suffering from “old man’s” disease. While I was still in my forties, imagine that.
And truthfully, I had resigned to the fact that I’ll probably need to rely on medicines for the rest of my life.
Thankfully, I saw Nam Wah Pai’s advertisement in the papers and decided to check it out, more so out of curiosity.
I was impressed with the Masters’ demo and his explanation about how qigong focuses on strengthening our body’s organs. I decided to register, and by the second lesson, I was feeling a vast improvement.
Today I no longer get up at night to urinate, and I’m truly thankful to Master Sim and his team for teaching me how to use qigong to cure my Nocturia problem.-Khoo Han Kiong, 56 years old
As you can see, I lived my life for 73 years now. At one point in my life, my visitation to the doctor began to increase as I encountered sickness like fever and fatigue regularly. Clearly, growing older has its drawbacks like an increase of high blood pressure and cholesterol in my system.
Although these manifestations did not show obvious symptoms, it impacted my health internally. That means, experiencing pressure pain in my lower legs, dizziness, and shortness of breath. Nonetheless, I was determined to overcome these internal problems.
Then, I discovered Nam Wah Pai and did not regret a second spent here. The reason for my statement is due to several factors. Firstly, it has a good, conducive environment. Without a doubt, the rooftop training area is my favourite as it has fresh air and cool breeze with an amazing view of the sunset, almost every evening. You could never get enough of that.
Secondly, I’ve made very good friends throughout the years due to its warming and friendly atmosphere. But most importantly it’s the health I’ve gained back and the nurturing and caring attitudes from the instructors and his assistants.
All in all, if you have dedication and determination to overcome your struggles, almost anyone can benefit their health from training here.-Richard Cher, 73 years old
I suffered from first stage of liver cancer and had gone through operation to remove part of my liver. I also undergone radiation for a total of six times. In 1997, I joined Nam Wah Pai, and started practicing the foundation course in Qigong, and after six to nine months, I went for a medical examination which revealed that the cancer growth has been fully controlled. I have gained a new lease of life now.-K.N. Ho, 45 years old
I was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer in 2006. I underwent treatment with injections costing $3,000 each. After two months training with Nam Wah Pai, I could forego the last four injections, saving $12,000. By that time, medical examination confirmed the cancer was in remission. I am now fully recovered.-C.S. Tan, 62 years old
My life changed after I suffered from a stroke. Forget the medical fees or the 3 months of hospitalization. The worst part of being a stroke patient is losing the ability to do simple everyday things. I couldn’t even walk properly without the help of a walking stick.
I attended Nam Wah Pai training as I didn’t have any other options. The Western medicine could only do so much for me, so I thought why not give this traditional Chinese art a try.
To my surprise, within 1 month of training, I started to see some slight improvement. I could perform some simple tasks. And after about 6 months of training, my condition is now close to my pre-stroke level. I no longer need the walking stick or help from people for my daily activities.-James Wong, 50 years old
I have been training with Nam Wah Pai for 4 years and enjoy the classes. I started because I was anemic and tired all the time. After 8 months of training the anemia cleared up, and now I train just because I love it. The improved muscle strength, flexibility and balance is a bonus.-Evelyn,
For quite a while, I had problems with adhesive capsulitis (also known as frozen shoulders) where I felt stiffness, tension, and displacement around my shoulders. The pain is rather intolerable, especially night time when I toss and turn, causing limited motion during my sleep and sometimes during the day.
On the other hand, I also have high blood sugar which ideally poses a threat to my health. As I researched online about these symptoms, the answer led me to frozen shoulder exercises, which are usually the cornerstone of treating frozen shoulder concerns. However, I also needed to find a way to improve my blood circulation.
Continuing my research, little did I know that the solution to my health was fairly within my grasp. By clicking one website to another, I stumbled upon Nam Wah Pai that teaches Qigong and Tai Chi. Amazed and drawn by its lessons, I figure I should give myself a try.
Shortly after 2 months of training, the effect had a tremendous response to my health. I cut down on medication by half, blood sugar dropped to healthy level, and my frozen shoulder is fully recovered. Truthfully, I almost lost hope but, thanks to Nam Wah Pai, I am feeling much healthier than ever.-Alan, 69 years old
Throughout my fifties and sixties, I always had borderline high blood pressure and cholesterol. I never paid much attention as it had not caused me any serious health problems so far and I was taking medication regularly.
When I suffered a mild stroke, I realized I had been taking my health for granted and I was lucky that the stroke was not anything more serious. My wife’s friend who had heard about what happened to me suggested trying the Qigong and Tai Chi courses at Nam Wah Pai as it was known to help with chronic health problems.
I’m glad I decided to try Qigong and Tai Chi at Nam Wah Pai as they really take the time to understand my health situation and advise what is suitable for me. For reference, my blood pressure has gone down from 150/95 to 130/80 and my cholesterol from 220 to 120.
This happened after just 2 months of Qigong training and after taking medication for years, I am finally able to reduce being so reliant on pills.-Patrick Lam, 73 years old
