Good work comes with more work?

25 Jan 2013

This is will be the fourth year coming for us to serve Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF)

I still remember in 2010,  just a simple thought of trying to raise fund for the needy during the lunar new year has translated to an opportunity for us in Beacon LOHAS to be able to serve and use our skill and experience into good use.

We were invited to provide a relaxing massage for the caregivers in the CCF at NUH branch.  It started out with one session a month in 2010.  I guess the parents really need that good pair of hands and at least have time out for themselves.   Eventually, the massage service turned into 2 sessions per month in 2011.

I still remembered there was a social worker told us the rationale behind the massage services.   It is meant to let the caregivers have “time out” for themselves.  Many of them sleep just next to the bed side of their children.  Stiff neck and shoulder, tiredness are part and parcel of their “hotel stay” at the hospital.  Some even have headache and migraine.   So, our presence is at the right place and right time.

Many of our participants think that we have contribute a lot.  However, we are also the one receiving a lot.  Every time we serve there, we also get to appreciate life and what we have.   One of the picture that motivates me a lot is the picture drawn by a teenage patient whose eye-sight are partially impaired due to her treatment.  Her message – “I’m Stronger Than Cancer”


Instead of self-pity, she chose to draw this picture to inspire the younger one. What a courageous girl!

Fast forward to 2013, I guess “good work” comes with “more work”, we are invited to provide similar session to CCF@KKH which we are glad to do so.  This will be a year that we are busier for our own training activities as well as community services.

We are grateful for the opportunities.

We have fun at LOHAS Meridian Exercise Program

Six weeks of Healthy & Fun session has passed.  Time flies.

Improvement such as better sleep, improved digestive system or bowel movement or even relieving symptoms of illness is remarkable, considering what we do here are exercise program (not medication).

LOHAS Meridian Exercise is just another typical exercise program. We have made the exercise more time efficient and effective for busy working class.

Participants Feedback

Hello Peng Tatt & Lihuan –

many thanks for forwarding the photos to me. I must say it has been a very educational and beneficial session.  You’re a very fun and patient teacher who takes pride and pains in explaining & demonstrating every step in detail to your students.  Yes, I can testify that I’ve truly energised myself from your sessions and can feel that the “blocked” qi in my body is being “unblocked” by exercising the LOHAS Meridian steps you taught.  Also I can feel that my immue system is strengthened by faithfully doing the LOHAS Meridian exercise at least twice a day .  For this, I thank you from the very bottom of my heart.

Last but not least, I wish you and Lihuan all the best in whatever you’re doing and keep up the good work for sharing your knowledge in promoting a healthier lifestyle.  Looking forward to learn more from you re healthy living and keeping pains, aches & illnesses at arm’s length.

Cheers & take care!

Fun and Healthy Employee Wellness Program

16 Mar 2012

It’s was an energetic morning when we stepped into the office of MindChamps.

Seeing all the staffs wearing the bright red tee-shirt and walking in a fast pace with lots of energy, tells us that there is a dynamic team inside this company.  The background music helped to bring up the atmosphere, it seemed like everybody is looking forward to their monthly meeting.

Beacon LOHAS is honored to serve such a dynamic and fun team, helping them in creating happy and healthy lifestyle in their fast pace environment. While waiting patiently outside the meeting room, Li Huan and I heard laughters and cheers, sipping through the tightly closed door.

Laughter and cheers? What an interesting monthly meeting they are having?
What games are they playing?

It triggered the inner child inside me and made me so curious in what is happening.

At the same time, I was looking forward to add value to this fun loving people.

Fifteen minutes later, it’s was our turn to be inside the room.  We were so privilege to hear Michelle sharing her journey of going through health challenges and how she managed to get well.  All this made her treasures her health, her life and people around her.

Her message to her beloved colleagues, “Healthy life is a meaningful life“.  When she mentioned this, it resonated with my heart, because this is exactly Beacon LOHAS colorful logo means – “life with health is colorful“.

your sustainable health partner

Inside my heart, “I have a mission today, to inspire the dynamic people here to take care of themselves better with the simple and effective LOHAS Meridian Self-Therapy techniques“.

Many people would have known that MindChamps is a dynamic institute that brings out the genius of our children.  They have many fun and effective learning techniques for their student.  With that in mind, it’s logical to think that any ordinary,mediocre & boring wellness program would not suit the dynamic staffs of this organisation.

As the training provider, we have to match up or even exceed their expectation towards a FUN, INFORMATIVE and PRACTICAL session.  And we did it in just 60 minutes!

Your hand is your first aid kit

While explaining the LOHAS Meridian concepts clearly and lively to them, the passionate trainer gets the staffs to participate FULLY, with lots of fun and energy. They lived up to the name of  “Power Up Your Health” session, they get to learn useful and very powerful  “LOHAS Meridian Exercise Basic“, a simple and effective way to energize the body and start the day with more energy.


The Champs there also learnt many useful techniques to manage stress related symptoms, improve respiratory systems (sensitive nose) and immune systems.  Of course, some of the simple exercise would help them with better digestion and weight management too.

One of the participants can feel the energy is moving inside him within 5 minutes of practice.  Yes! “5 min a day, happy and healthy always” is our motto of the program.

Fun and hands-on employee wellness program  Fun and laughter


Through out this compact, informative and fun session, participants get to understand their body better and learn some telling sign of their body meridian health status.  They get to find many useful body point that helps them to make them healthier (not sick doesn’t means healthy yet).

fun and interactive session  5 mins a day, happy and healthy always


The session ended in a high spirit where all the staffs learnt useful techniques and get their health questions answered by our trainers. Some common issues are related to aches and pains. They also get the chance to clarify for their family members health issue. The trainers were delighted to know that there are such a keen interest in this natural, safe and most cost effective way of stay healthy.

Of course, this is just the first session of “Happy and Healthy at Workplace“. Imagine that if they get to practice and learn more of the LOHAS Meridian Self-Therapy techniques on the monthly basis, it would create a healthy and dynamic team for better performance at work.

It also means that the staffs are healthy and productive, which in turns allows them to have more quality time with their family or personal life.  This is the vision of Beacon LOHAS employee wellness program. Creating a healthy, balanced work-life.

Beacon LOHAS is not just only your training provider.

We are smart learner

We are your SUSTAINABLE HEALTH partner.


Ways to improve immune system (LOHAS Meridian Exercise)

16 Feb 2012

Recently, there are a few friends of mine, (and their friends as well), were complaining having sore throat, fever and cough.  Some were even down with runny nose.  Some of them have to be on sick leave for almost a week.

Imagine the lost of productivity, fun and enjoyment because of the infection.

Besides drinking water, what other ways can help us to avoid being hit by those unwanted (avoidable) situation is taking pear or watermelon (not suitable for people with weak stomach) when we start to have dry throat or  feeling”heaty”.  Prevention is always better than cure, isn’t?

For the past 8 years, I’ve not been taking such medication because I hardly fell sick. Even if I am sick, I recover within 2 days without medication.  I practised the above method.

Another thing that helps me very much is the LOHAS Meridian Exercises.

LOHAS Meridian Exercises is the essence of LOHAS Meridian Self-Therapy teaching.  It summarized the important teaching into 5~10 min actions.

We designed it with initial intention to help people improve Qi & Blood circulation through a FUN way.

However, as more and more people practice it, they came back to us with feedback such as improvement on digestive system, improve immune system, relieve aches and pain, improve bowel movement, overweight and underweight, high blood pressure, knee joint problem.

For example, there is a corporate trainer, Betty, she has been spending $80+ per month on an US health supplement to improve her bowel movement.  After practicing the LOHAS Meridian Exercise, she totally cut down on that supplement.  On top of that, she can even improve her quality of sleep and start her day with more energy.

Imagine, $80+ per months means almost $1000 saving a year!

Definitely that $1000 can be put into other good use, like travel, gift for one-self or family or simply more saving.

That is the reason we are regularly advocating people to practise LOHAS Meridian Exercise, help people be healthy ans save lots of money.

The beautiful part is, LOHAS Meridian Exercise is simple and easy to learn and yet very useful and effective.

Why LOHAS Meridian Exercises works because it improve the Qi & Blood circulation and thus enhances our internal organs. It focus on many important points of our body to strengthen our meridian.

We designed the movement and sequence such that a 5~10 min LOHAS Meridian Exercise is almost equivalent to 20 min brisk walking.  On top of that, it enhance the flexibility of our joints.

Out motto, ” 5 min a day, happy and healthy always”<

For more information and participants feedback,

The next coming class is 18 Feb (Sat) 4PM-6PM.  $15 per pax. $25 per 2 pax.

We want you to be healthy and have more enjoyment in life.

LOHAS Meridian Massage – Graduate Gathering – 8 Oct 2011

9 Oct 2011

On 8 Oct 2011, we had another good meeting with fellow graduates of LOHAS Meridian Massage Workshop (Comprehensive).  Vincent, Lai Kwan, Felicia, Mdm Aw, Edwina, Anna and Hsiu Mei were present in our gathering.

The gathering was a good meet up session for all. In a nice, casual ambient, there were plenty of fun and laughter. Different batches of graduate get to meet each other and share experience too.  Of course, nice food is always one of the good attraction here too.

The idea of having gathering to support our graduate in refreshing their learning and practising of LOHAS Meridian Massage and self-therapy.  At the same time, they get to learn new knowledge about meridian health and massage.

In this gathering, our meridian health master trainer, Peng Tatt, sharedSimple and Effective way to improve Qi and Blood about the definition body type according to latest research in Traditional Chinese Medicine.  They also get to understand the body signal when they are lack of “yin”, lack of “yang”, lack of “Qi” and do a simple test of “sensitive” body type. They also get to know what are the simple remedies for different type of body natures.

We are glad that many of our graduate belongs to “balanced type” body.  Hope that they continue to practise LOHAS Meridian Massage and Hand Techniques and stay balanced.

Some graduates also get their queries answered regarding their health issues and how to use meridian massage and exercise technique to improve health conditions.

participants from Meridian Massage Workshop (comprehensive class)Edwina shared her experience how she had used LOHAS Meridian Massage and hand techniques to revive her father-in-law.  Her story can be found in LOHAS DIGEST 26 too.

Edwina also shared that after practising LOHAS Meridian Exercise (LOHAS-ME), she managed to improved her circulation and she does not have cold hand and feet anymore. Now, she diligently spends 5~10 minutes in the morning to practise the LOHAS-ME.  In fact, when Peng Tatt observe her face, her face color has improved after she has finished her LOHAS Meridian Massage workshop (Comprehensive). Well done, Edwina!

Our pioneer batch of DIYMMC participant commented to us, “Over the years, you have improved a lot”.  Thanks for the feedback.  Yes, we would like to grow healthier together with our participants – we are your SUSTAINABLE HEALTH partner.

Thanks all the graduates who were present yesterday and we wish you “Stay Healthy, Stay Awesome”!

The next gathering will be on Dec 2011. Looking forward to see all our graduate to join us again for more learning and experiences.

Truth about successful slimming

6 Oct 2011

We had just finished our Ultimate Slimming Intensive workshop on 5 Oct 2011.
It was a small class with lots of learning for the everybody.

During one of the tea break (yes, we still eat normally when our topic is on slimming), one of the participants curiously asked the other participants an important question.

She said to her classmate, “I don’t really understand and I am very curious. You seems to be very health conscious, you prepared your own healthy lunch, you practise Tai-Ji regularly, you seems to be a discipline person, how come you size it still….”, at this moment, she make a gesture of “round shape”.

I was glad that she asked the very important question to her classmate, even though it is during the tea break. This is exactly what Ultimate Slimming Intensive workshop all about.

Many a times, we see those “health conscious” people around us, they seems to do the “right” things but their shape or weight seems to show otherwise.

In Ultimate Slimming Intensive workshop, participants are taught the very important and profound FOUR GOLDEN PRINCIPLES. This FOUR GOLDEN PRINCIPLES allows the participants to enjoy the food and stay slim at the same time.  The truth is – it is not what we eat that matters, but how we eat it! We really need to enjoy food rather the using our mind to control what we eat or how much we should eat.

In fact, the more we practise, the more freedom we have for our choices of food.

If participants allow themselves to unlearn and relearn, these principles are fairly easy to practise, . For example, one of the things we teach is eat when you are hungry. Simple and easy isn’t it?

I am glad that it was a small group session so that the information hungry (keen learner) get to ask THE question that was bothering her.

In fact, there were many enlightening moment for all participants. They discovered THE FUNDAMENTAL things that stopping them to achieve their SLIMMING GOAL. They get to discover their “little voice” that is not supporting their slimming journey.

As I mention in every slimming workshop, it is not only the LOHAS meridian massage techniques that I am going to share, but participants get to learn much more on the important things and self-discovery that give them CLARITY to their slimming goal. They discover the truth about successful slimming!

May all of them have more clarity as they practise their customised slimming program. CLARITY leads to POWER, POWER is the ability to ACT.

Of course the true learning (truth) comes when they really put their new knowledge into practice.  I wish them having a FUN DISCOVERY and HEALTHY slimming journey.

LOHAS Meridian Massage Workshop – Sep 2011

26 Sep 2011

Our two Sunday LOHAS Meridian Massage (Comprehensive) Workshop was completed on 25 Sep 2011.

It was a great learning session for Lina, Margaret Tan, Doris and Magaret.

As the trainer went through the basic information about meridian in the first few hours of the lesson, all of them discovered what area of their health they can improve further.  A common problem for many is stiff neck and shoulder, lack of sleep, overweight or underweight, low blood or high blood pressure.

This workshop covered comprehensively on the meridians with many hands-on and self-discovery exercises.  All of them discovered further as we go along exploring the meridians system.  For example, Doris not only knows how to take care of herself better, she also learn ways to help her very underweight mother too.  In fact, since she last finished her Ultimate Slimming Intensive workshop with us, her perspective changes and automatically she didn’t take oily food and she lost 3kg withing a month. This is power of knowledge and education.

Of course, when coming to the afternoon session when we really put everything together into practice, that is the most fun and enjoyable section for all, especially those hard working mothers.  They get to practise refresh, recharge and rejuvenate.

As they finished the class, even though we ended late, they have a good experiential learning.  Of course, all the two days training is to prepare them for their real life routine.  It’s is important for them to keep on practising on the daily basis.

We will see them soon when we have our support group gathering on 8 Oct 2011.
