Dr. Marshall Ho’o’s Stick Form -Massage Series

Easy efficient meridian massage from outside to in. Warms up or cools down muscles; stimulates cardio & general circulation; has brought relief for M.S. and fibromyalgia patients

The late Dr Ho’o, as co-founder of the National Tai Chi Chuan Asso.(’62), hosted two of the first prominent Chinese TCC grandmasters to teach westerners. He initiated the first acupuncture research by westerners at UCLA (forerunner of today’s East West Research studies at UCLA Medical Center); appropriated legalization in California (‘70s) and co-created the first acupuncture clinics citywide in L A, Ca. He assisted in publishing the first comprehensive internationally accepted English manual of traditional TCC studies, was founding Dean of internationally attended Aspen Academy of Martial & Healing Arts; created the southern California Bronson Park TCC practice circle (recognized for over 40 years); and spent over 20 years traveling nationally teaching health professionals and TCC instructors correct fundamental tai chi training and Chinese health concepts.

ancient, instantly grounding while standing, sitting, or lying down. Progressively builds up ‘vital’ energy; accessible to use for any situation. Cook-Nelson began her 38-year internal martial and healing arts training with Dr Ho’o (23 yrs). Later she supplemented her studies with other renowned masters at home and in China and became a veteran TCC instructor and national/international gold medalist/grand champion of compulsory form competitions.

These tested simple training techniques she received inspire home practice.
