He has also served as a council member of the Fourth World Academic Society of Medical Qigong and from 1993-1999, was the director of the Qigong Science Research Institute of Guangzhou University in China.
After intensively studying ancient Chinese ways of preserving health, in 1990, Master Ou, in order to enable practitioners to absorb the life force of the universe and to temper and improve their own life force and immune systems, created Pangu Shengong, based on the physiology of the human body and the miraculous relationship between human beings and nature. Since then, Pangu Shengong has successfully treated many patients with ailments such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, apoplexy, lupus, and many others.
Master Ou has also expended much effort in applying Pangu Shengong toward scientific research. In 1997, with the Guangzhou Ministry of Public Security, he took part in a study involving the effect of Qigong therapy in the treatment of addictions in humans; the next year with the cooperation of the First Military Medical University of China he did the same for addictions in animals. All of this research demonstrated Pangu Shengong’s effectiveness in stopping drug addiction.
