Angela van Zandt
Medical Qigong Practitioner
Qigong Meridian Therapy 

A long-time advanced student of Grand Master Nan Lu, OMD, and the Wu Ming Taoist lineage, Angela has over a decade of experience practicing as a LifeForce: Tao of Medical Qigong Practitioner, Dragon's Way Qigong Instructor, and Qigong Meridian Therapy Practitioner. As a former firefighter, engineer, and EMT, Angela is especially passionate about treating people with PTSD, trauma, and "caregiver burnout".


Her love for animals and her dedication to the environment has led to her desire to expand her healing knowledge as a current doctoral student in the field of wildlife conservation at Unity Environmental University. As a proud member of the LGBTQIA2S+ community, Angela's dedication to wellness and generous healing spirit also extends to anyone in need of loving, nonjudgmental support and guidance. 

Angela's Story

Angela's healing journey began more than 20 years ago with a 10-year stint as an Orange County, FL firefighter, EMT, and engineer. Although she loved her work saving lives, the extreme work conditions and stress led to health problems that forced her to reconsider her chosen career path. After moving to New York City, she experienced Qigong's healing potential first-hand through meeting her spiritual teacher, Grand Master Lu, at a Dragon's Way Qigong class, and has been on a path of spiritual discovery and wellness ever since. Her passion for Chinese medicine and Qigong eventually led her to become certified through Grand Master Lu's trainings as a Medical Qigong practitioner and Dragon's Way Qigong instructor, and she has played a key role in TCM World Foundation's operations for over a decade as a Technical Specialist and "Ms. Fix-It."

From Angela: "I have a diverse employment history that speaks of my personality and passion. From the Firefighter/EMS field to alternative medicine with TCM World Foundation, my passion is connecting with people. I became a Firefighter because I wanted to help people. I learned that I must help myself to truly help anyone else. I have been cultivating myself by practicing Wu Ming Qigong under Grand Master Nan Lu for over ten years. I hope to help anyone who suffers from burnout, trauma, or LGBTQIA2S+ challenges and hopefully guide them towards understanding how these experiences led them to their true purpose in life and personal growth."
