Hello Friends and friends to be! Welcome to my website! May this visit lead you into the world of Tai Chi, Qigong and holistic living; together let's build a better version of you! 
My name is Vicki Zhao, an Assistant Professor of Chinese at University of Texas at Arlington. Besides teaching Chinese language and culture, I am passionate to help people live a healthy and happy life with holistic approach. I am a certified Holistic Health Coach and Master Tai Chi and Qigong Instructor. I studied Tai Chi and Qigong during my college years in China and have been teaching in different states in the U.S. for over 10 years. I grew up with holistic living and Chinese medicine, and now I am grateful for providing authentic and elite services to my clients.
My holistic health coaching focuses on natural healing with nutrition anda  healthy lifestyle establishment.  Compared to other cultures, we have a high rate of medical operations and drug use. Lot of people just follow mainstream doctors' advice and received unnecessary surgeries and drugs. Among my students of my age, most of them had one kind of surgery, and some of them had a few. Western medicine uses surgery for pain relief, but it causes further damage. The human body works miraculously to heal itself; we just need to learn how to offer the help it needs. 
Numerous studies have shown that Tai Chi and Qigong are effective treatments for anxiety, depression, arthritis, osteoporosis, pain, memory loss and more. Their health benefits are phenomenal and best of all -they are easy to learn.  Lots of people take a handful of prescription drugs every day, use more drugs to cover the side effects caused by previous drugs. They might think it is just a part of life. Life shouldn't be this way. Instead, you can turn your health around with lifestyle changes along with Tai Chi and Qigong. It is possible to live drug free. The transformations have happened to my clients so it can heppen to you!

What is like to come to Vicki for holistic health counseling?

We will have an initial session for data collection and possible diagnosis. The following session we will finish goal setting and make a practical and individualized plan. I then will be at your side to help you achieve your goal. You will learn new knowledge and skills, gain power over your health. You will also be assigned various methods to resolve your concerns and health issues.

Online Qigong classes: Convenient, Short and Easy!

If you can't commit 12 hours for Tai Chi right now,  then start with Qigong first. It only takes 6 sessions to complete one set of Chinese classic Qigong. It has less movements and easier to learn.  The benefits are phenomenal and last a lifetime. Qigong can reduce stress, ease pain, improve memories, strenthen organ functions, improve digestion, strengthen nervous system, improve flexibility, speed up recovery after surgery, to name a few.
Vicki is an excellent Tai chi instructor. My eighty year old dad I have gained many benefits from doing tai chi with Vicki. Our leg strength, balance and flexibility increased. Also, when I had sciatica, tai chi was the only thing that brought relief. I highly recommend Vicki’s Tai Chi and Qigong.

Vicki’s breath of knowledge and skill is masterful! We are blessed to have found her. She is extremely passionate about teaching others about her culture and this ancient technique, that in my opinion, all should learn.
Vicki is kind, patient and fun to study with. My husband, myself and teenage daughter learned so much from her. It even really helped with my allergies and the movement allowed for great flow of energy throughout my body, which I really appreciated. We practice the skills daily and feel more connected and at peace.
As a clinician and someone that helps people find balance, this is an amazing life skill everyone should have for calming balance and stress relief. I would highly recommend taking a class with Vickie. You will not regret it! Thank you to Vicki for sharing your passion and wisdom with us!

I took both tai chi and qigong lessons from Vicki, and now I am taking Level II Tai Chi. I found both exercises very helpful for stress reduction, which I need the most for my current situation. Vicki possesses an extraordinary depth of knowledge that extends beyond the physical movements, encompassing the rich history, philosophy, and spiritual essence of Tai Chi and Qigong. Her teachings also provide a holistic approach that fosters physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. It is amazing to see how much that I have learned and grown. It is my honor and privilege to study with Vicki.
