Wuji Productions, Inc. was founded in 1997 by Francesco Garri Garripoli, respected Qigong instructor, author, wellness advocate, Emmy Award winning television graphics designer and program Producer-Director. Francesco produced educational television programs for PBS-TV for 18 years and has created and is featured on a series of award-winning Qigong DVDs with his business partner, Daisy Lee .
Francesco’s interest in complementary medicine goes back to the mid-1970s when he left university as a premed student under full scholarship and went to study in Hawaii with a renowned 81 year-old doctor trained in integrative Eastern healing and known for his extraordinary medical results.
Francesco Garripoli lived in China for years during an intensive study of martial arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities, including acupuncture and Qigong. While there he produced and directed the one-hour documentary titled “Qigong – Ancient Chinese Healing for the 21st Century,” which airs nationwide across the PBS Television network. It is available as a home video release.
The past Chairman of the National Qigong Association (NQA) for two terms, and current President of the non-profit Qigong Institute, Francesco does what he can to volunteer for important causes such as his position on the East Kaua`i Drug Prevention Education Team helping needy youth and families in Hawaii.
