Healing Background

Master Sha is a medical doctor in China and a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine in China and Canada. Born in the Shaanxi province of China, he became interested in healing as a young child as he observed people in his immediate and extended family struggling with a variety of illnesses.

At the age of six, he was accepted by the first of several masters in Eastern martial arts. At twenty-two, even before completing his training as a physician, Master Sha began to combine the knowledge of energy development he had learned through his practice of martial arts with traditional Chinese acupuncture to create his own unique acupuncture system.

Master Sha went on to study at Xi’an Jiaotong University, completing his medical degree in Western medicine in 1983. He was also certified as an acupuncturist and herbalist in 1986 by the World Health Organization’s Institute of International Acupuncture and Moxibustion in Beijing, where he taught acupuncture, tai chi and qigong to foreign physicians. He is a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine and a registered acupuncturist in Canada.

In 2005, under the aegis of Dr. and Master Zhi Chen Guo, his revered teacher in China since 1990, he became the sole Western teacher of Body Space Medicine, credited by the Chinese government with helping to contain the SARS epidemic in China. Master Sha learned the most profound secrets, wisdom, and knowledge from Master Guo, his adoptive father, the founder of Zhi Neng Medicine and Body Space Medicine, who also taught him the integration of Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism with modern medicine and traditional Chinese medicine.

Master Sha also completed a Master’s Degree in Hospital Administration at the University of the Philippines in 1988. While there, word of his skill as an acupuncturist spread and he treated numerous VIPs while also offering a street clinic for the poor.

The creator of the Soul Mind Body Science System and founder of the Tao Academy, Master Sha also supports the ongoing studies and projects of the Sha Research Foundation.
