Eastover Welcomes Renowned Chinese Medicine Doctor Zhang Dechao & the Deyu Hall Cancer Treatment/Rehabilitation Team
Deyu Hall is well-known to Chinese and other foreign nationals for their successful treatment of cancer through the use of centuries old Taoist principles and Traditional Chinese Medicine. With a belief system centered on the "Tao" (the Way/Source) its focus is the cultivation of "Source" energy as a way of life. The doctor of Chinese Medicine was therefore thought of very highly - well respected for their dedication to a practice that, while not theistically oriented in the traditional sense, stemmed greatly from a reverence for the Source of all things. In addition to the extensive use of herbs, acupuncture, qigong and massage, doctors practicing Chinese medical sciences were devoted to Qi cultivation by way of the practice of meditation, breath control, and Taoist ethics that instilled, among other virtues, simplicity, compassion and a non-fear based/non-dogmatic sense of morality. In the tradition of Chinese medicine masters such as Sun Simiao, Hua Tuo and Li Shizhen, Dr. Zhang Dechao is outstanding in this field - catering to cancer victims for decades, he has cured and brought hope to many patients with the creation of his "Anti-Cancer Stereotherapy". Dr. Zhang Dechao received the title of Master of Acupuncture and Moxibustion from the Hubei University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. His father, Zhang Sinan, was also a Chinese Medicine doctor, and the inventor of the first generation of the Acupuncture Induction Electrotherapy machine in China. He studied under Professor Sun Guojie, Editor-in-Chief of Chinese Acupuncture Masters, was a student of Wu Wenwen, and is proficient in spiritual teachings and ethics. From childhood he demonstrated interest in ancient Chinese texts on morality and medicine, reading such classics as the I Ching and The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine to acquire the wisdom of sages. Dr. Dechao has traveled extensively to places like Wudang Mountain and Shennongiia in China to collect exotic medicinal herbs in an effort to lay the foundation for his role in ridding the world of cancer.

The five hours of intensive Form training each day will be balanced by and Dunn's extraordinary lessons in evening sessions in Tao Tan Pai Nei Kung and Flying Phoenix Celestial Healing Qigong, two very different Taoist monastic systems of Qigong that he has mastered, but both of which are shaped to not just complement Tai Chi practice, but to accelerate development in Tai Chi Chuan.
