Meet the Author

Master Owen Liao is a licensed acupuncturist, qigong healer and Tai Chi master. Since 1992, Owen has written three books in both Chinese and English and published three Tai Chi Qigong DVDs. His latest book - Let Your Body Listen to You, 2009, bas been selling very well in Taiwan and China. The English version will be coming soon.
Master Owen Liao was born in 1952. His parents were farmers and lived in a rural village in northern Taiwan. At age three, he contracted polio, which paralyzed the right side of his body. Fortunately, his parents found a Chinese doctor who was able to help treat his condition. Within two years, he became much stronger physically and back on his two feet. In his village, no student had yet gone to college. Due to his mother's dream and hard work, he became the first student in his village to go to the best high school in his country. He then attended college and finished his computer science degree in 1976. Master Liao came to the United State in 1985. After pursuing a Master's degree in computer science, he worked on Wall Street as an Information Technologist.
Due to health concerns and weak constitution, Master Liao became interested in Chinese medicine. While looking for a Chinese doctor, he met the world-renowned healer, Master Tom Tam. Master Tam introduced him to Chinese medicine and Tai Chi. While continuing to work on Wall Street, he studied Chinese medicine and focused his understanding on neurological conditions. He greatly improved his post-polio syndrome and made himself much stronger.

Master Liao has gained an in-depth knowledge of Yang style Tai Chi for health purposes. He created the Yang Style Essence Tai Chi routine which consists of fifteen movements that take only four minutes to perform. This is especially appropriate for today's busy life style. Master Liao's theory is that practicing the short Essence Tai Chi is sufficient to relax the body and build up the Qi to massage internal organs, resulting in improved health and quality of life.
