Ancient Wisdom in a Modern World



Inner Strength began as a Health and Wellness Center in 1995, featuring personal training, nutritional counseling, meditation practices, and martial arts. Our building is nestled on 30 rural acres, about 30 miles north of Pittsburgh PA. We offered private services at our center and provided wellness programs to national corporate clients.

When Dr. Cibik earned his Naturopathic Doctor license and later his Doctorate in Medical QiGong, these practices were expanded to include naturopathy and Chinese medicine. Certification programs began in Medical QiGong, to allow this practice to expand to other interested clients and students.

As interest in our programs grew, we began to offer life enrichment workshops geared to those interested in energy, qigong, Taoist philosophy, nutrition and natural health for themselves and their loved ones.



Instructor: Ted J. Cibik, PhD, DMQ, ND

Our lead instructor for all medical QiGong courses is Ted J. Cibik, who teaches all classes personally. Dr. Cibik was one of the first graduates of the International Institute of Medical Qigong to complete his doctorate in this program, and has the longest-running instructional and practical Medical QiGong Programs taught in English outside of California. Dr. Cibik has regularly assisted and contributed to the world renowned Dr. Jerry Alan Johnson’s writings and teaching of Medical QiGong.

Dr. Cibik has treated patients continuously since 1999 using Medical QiGong and brings the experience of over a thousand case scenarios to his classes.

Dr. Cibik is also a senior student of Jeffrey Yuen, and recently was awarded the title of Zhong Yi, or Chinese Physician, due to his exceptional understanding of Chinese medicine. He is also a disciple of the Taoist linage Yu Ching Huang Lao Pai, Yellow Emperor/Lao Tzu Sect.

Like the famous Chinese physician Sun Si Miao, Dr. Cibik was sickly as a child, so his interest in medicine grew naturally. His pediatricians believed he would never live past the age of five. Through exercise, nutrition, and meditation he has lived the healing process all his life and now teaches willing students.

Dr. Cibik’s knowledge and presentation style has been sought by hospitals, government agencies (including the National Institute of Health), and  psychologists all over the United States for his insight into Chinese Medicine, Naturopathy, counselling and Medical QiGong.

Dr Cibik is recognized by Taoist priests, Buddhist monks, medical doctors and PhD’s for his unique ability to communicate ideas from an Eastern perspective, to a western medical perspective and visa-versa. Raised in both Ch’an Buddhism and Christianity provides a unique balance and insight in his teachings.

Dr. Cibik's research and investigation into Energy Medicine has been acknowledged by top Energy Medicine researchers for his unique insights into it’s healing methods and various modalities of Chinese Medicine.

Dr. Cibik's work has been published in such periodicals as: Journal of Naturopathic Medicine; IDEA Health and Fitness Source; Journal of Chinese Medicine; Oriental Medicine: Pacific College of Oriental medicine ; Traditional Chinese Medicine World ; Qi ; Empty Vessel

He has lectured at traditional allopathic hospitals and has worked for the last 17 years with the American Lung Association as a facilitator and teacher to asthmatic children on methods for breathing more effectively.

He is a frequent speaker at national conference and conventions, including the annual Taoist Gathering in San Francisco, The NQA conferences, and IDEA.
