World Tai Chi Qigong Day Event- April 24
9:30 to 10:30 AM at Clarence Foster Park
4400 Woodland Park Blvd, Arlington, TX 76013
Every year all over the world, people join together on the last Saturday of April to share the powerful energy of qigong and tai chi. Our hope is to provide a healing energy to our world. The free event will be held at Clarence Foster park in Arlington. This location was chosen for the beautiful trees and ample parking on the south side of the park.
Bring water and comfortable shoes. We social distance, and ask that you wear a mask when in close proximity to people during the event.
Due to the recent COVID 19 pandemic all classes are now offered online. Please sign up and pay as usual, and I will send you the ZOOM meeting link for your chosen classes. Private sessions are are done in person at my studio with only one person per session. Many people are finding the treatment sessions help to boost energy, and that they experience extreme relaxation. You will be provided a mask, and you will need to answer some screening questions. We are thankful for technology and are having fun connecting in classes, which allows interaction and the QI community we need. Consider participating to build and maintain your immune system. I am hopeful as the weather cools down I will be able to offer outside classes!
Blessings to everyone.

Healing Through Energy
Welcome to North Texas QiGong
My name is Martha Fiddes, and my passion is helping people to improve their health and well-being through the practice of QiGong.
There are so many problems in our world that traditional western medicine cannot help. In addition, the pace of our lives and our world leaves us tired and ill, without understanding why. The power of QiGong is in learning to focus inward rather than outward, thus improving health, concentration, mental acuity, and immunity through the practice of breathing, meditation, focused intention, and simple exercise. QiGong can be learned and experienced, no matter what the physical condition of the body, and amazing miracles can happen. QiGong practice can benefit by making those who are healthy function even better. The practice can also be performed by those who are very ill, to bring the body back to health.
In my practice I teach students basic exercises so they may gain control over their specific problems. Because of my education in the medical profession, I am uniquely able to provide a fusion of Qigong with traditional Western medicine practice.
Treatment & Therapy
In addition to teaching classes, I also provide qi transmissions for both people and animals for treatment of chronic illness, particularly those with pain and inflammation.
I am particularly interested in helping those in the healing professions to develop practices to keep themselves strong so they may be of benefit to others. In addition to compassion fatigue training, I can also provide continuing education opportunities bringing QiGong to nurses, social workers, and therapists.
About Martha Fiddes
I have been a Physical Therapist for 30 years, and was one of the first Physical Therapists to achieve special certification through the American Physical Therapy Association as a Certified Clinical Specialist in Geriatrics in 1996. Over the past 20 years I completed certifications and taught yoga, pilates, and Tai Chi, but always felt there was more to learn. I found that "something special" with my teacher, GrandMaster Sifu Armstrong in Atlanta, Georgia. From Sifu I learned that energy is information. The more energy you acquire, the more you know and understand about the self, life, and what the body needs to heal itself. The universe is comprised of innumerable levels of matter enclosed in one holistic entity. The body is the same, with the center being the organs and circulation of qi (energy) and blood throughout the system.
I am also a Professional Member of the National QiGong Association and the National QiGong Institute, a certified QiGong Master practitioner, and also received Certification in Tai Chi for Arthritis through Dr. Paul Lam.
