WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT NEI QI GONG...
"In 30 years of Qi Gong, I have never seen an actual emission of Qi. Then I met Master Zhou..."
My name is Giorgio S. and I have been practicing Qi Gong since November 1976. For about ten years I have practiced only external styles, with two different Masters, one Irish and the other Chinese. Meeting with a Master who practiced internal styles made me realize that practice is not just kicking and hitting and that there is a world where true strength is not in the physical matter, but there is another force that is much more powerful that does not diminish with aging. On the contrary, it increases more and more.
With this Master, I practiced intensely for 17 years, until his unfortunate premature death. After his death, I continued to practice following his teachings and meeting many (Chinese) Qi Gong masters, very famous in the West. Despite having practiced Qi Gong, with dedication and perseverance, for 30 years, I could not do or see a real Qi emission. I witnessed teachers blowing up their students with a single wave of the hand or just looking at them. When I asked to try it, they told me that I was not ready to receive Qi and that it would have been dangerous.
In my opinion, neither of them was able to emit Qi. It was mental conditioning that led the students to follow all the movements of their teacher. I must say that, despite various disappointments, I have always believed that there was a great force within us and that we only needed to find a way to use it. So I put myself, even with a bit of skepticism, to search the Internet for everything concerned about the Qi topic. I discovered Shifu Costantino's site and decided to enroll in Nei Qi Gong courses. In November, I was allowed to go to China and personally meet Master Zhou. It was like leaving a room where I have been locked up for years and finally seeing what's outside.
Master Zhou is a wonderful, humble, and kind person, with a great desire to teach all those who have the humility to learn. Without many rounds of words, he made me feel his Qi, and, without touching me, he did a Qi emission to me. I had seen Master Zhou emit Qi to other people, but feeling it myself was something that cannot be explained, and that makes you change completely. It is not about suggestions or sensations, it is not about "it seems that I feel something", it is an immense force that stuns and that few men in the world can dominate. I don't know where I can go on my new path, but now I really know that there are people who can teach me.
No more crutches after two sessions ...
I am a martial arts teacher and about two years ago, a student had a sprained knee while practicing wrestling on the ground. He immediately went to the doctor and after several investigations, he discovered that there were no breaks, and the cure he was given was: anti-inflammatories, crutches, and rest.
However, after a few days, since there were no improvements, I suggested to the student to meet Shifu Costantino Valente. I knew already that he had helped other people. The teacher made the student sit down and, through his hands, carried the electric current in some points of his leg. After less than an hour, he told us that he had done what he could, and if the student had some benefits from the treatment and still needed more help, he knew where to find him.
The amazement was that the student got up and left without using crutches, saying that it seemed that he had never had any problems. The truth is that the day after a little pain came back and took another session to solve the problem completely.
The next day the knee returned to normal, thanks to the electrical energy carried by the master...
My name is Carla, I am 28 years old. About eight months ago, I had a problem with my right knee, for about ten days it was swollen, uncomfortable, and painful, and did not improve even when I was resting. And I could not take any medication due to breastfeeding. With a little fear, led by my husband, I underwent a therapy session with Shifu Costantino Valente.
The concern I had, in the beginning, turned into amazement when the teacher's fingers touched some points near the knee. Gradually, first light and then with more intensity, an electric current, transmitted by the master's hands flowed into my leg. I felt instantly a feeling of well-being and lightness in the knee, free from discomfort and pain. The next day, the knee returned to normal.
I fully recovered from a serious chronic health problem...
I could speak for a long time about everything Shifu Constantino Valente and Nei Qi Gong have done for me. Over the years I have had the privilege of accompanying these Masters on their trips and spending a lot of time with them. Even today, Nei Qi Gong continues to be one of the most important practices of my life.
I fully recovered from a serious chronic health problem I had from birth (considered incurable by official medicine). I mastered my body and its functions in ways I could never have imagined were possible (but still infinitesimal compared to my Masters). I have acquired a level of energy that allows me to maintain a very high work rate and recharge quickly, thanks to which today I can easily guide an entire spiritual movement and take care of an incalculable number of people.
I was lucky in this life to meet many spiritual teachers and human beings out of the ordinary, but I can say that Shifu Costantino Valente and Nei Qi Gong are amongst the most precious treasures I have found. My words will never express the true gratitude I feel for them.
"The best strategy for daily well-being..."
This wonderful practice has been part of my morning routine for many years. I find it perfect to start the day because it awakens my body and increases my energy with a balanced mix of physical and mental work. Together with a healthy and empowering diet, it is the best strategy for daily well-being.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT LEARNING
ONLINE WITH JIAOSHI ANDREA...
I highly recommend Jiaoshi Andrea Castrogiovanni. He is a very patient instructor and he will pay very close attention to your movements and find mistakes fast to help you correct them during your training. He also gives you great study material to make sure you are successful in mastering the training. Overall, great Nei Qi Gong instructor and course.

Yesterday I learned the intricate and complex art of Xing Shen Zhuang Gong over Zoom. It is a practice that was first only taught to close disciples and initiates in hidden Daoist lineages. It is now finally being disseminated and shared online by Shifu Constantino Valente and his student Jiaoshi Andrea, which is a truly wonderful opportunity.
Despite not being there physically, Andrea has a keen eye for detail and his explanations were excellent. Though the movements looked simple at first – doing them with Andrea proved that there was much more to these movements than expected. Every little aspect of posture and each of the 15 movements and techniques was explained and detailed hidden instructions were given in terms of internal focus and internal state.
We kept practicing the exercises I found difficult until I knew the essential aspect of them and could practice them well enough on my own while still retaining the essence of that exercise.
After the 3-hour session, I received an email with the full instructive PDF and also a video of Jiaoshi Andrea’s master going through the movements with Andrea’s instructions as a follow-along video. This is what I’ll be using until I know the full XSZG by heart.
After finishing the full training and distant learning session, I felt that I had worked out my entire body. I was sore in all kinds of places and felt like I had worked out every part of my back. After resting for a bit and eating to nourish me, I felt invigorated, warm, calm, and a lot more energized than usual.
I’m excited to see what’s to come.
The learning for me with Andrea was outstanding and very efficient.
Andrea is very patient with the teachings and explains the techniques very thoroughly.
I felt I was guided with sincere, dedicated, and empathic care for my personal goals.
He is communicating directly at an eye to eye level, without any barriers, that kind of interaction makes the practice and knowledge gaining process very effectively.
Andrea has an amazingly humble and caring nature, a truly rare human-being that surpassed the illusion of ego.

I was happy to go through the first course of the Xing Shen Zhuang Gong.
Jiaoshi Andrea was friendly, earnest, conscientious, and very thorough. We went through each exercise in a detailed way and then through the whole sequence.
I enjoyed the lesson and benefitted greatly from his instructions as I also carried on with the video the following days. I highly recommend this course!!
I was happy to go through the 1st level of the Xing Shen Zhuang Gong and I highly recommend Jiaoshi Andrea Castrogiovanni as a personal teacher. He gives very importance to details and has a lot of patience.
The 1st practice is a bit demanding but the results are immediate and apparent. You will feel your body refreshed and with energy from the very first sessions.
