About the Instructor
Henderson Smith is the Founder of Living Well Therapies and specializes in teaching Qigong and Tai Chi as the exploration of applied physical, mental, and energetic self-mastery. He began the exploration of Qi (breath or energy) as a medium for healing and maximizing power with Sei Bu Do Martial Arts under Grand Master Dr. Donald Swansey where he earned a 2nd Degree Black Belt and studied Acupressure, Pressure Points, and Medical Qigong for natural healing. Henderson continued his study of Qigong as a system for self-awareness, self-care and self-control earning a 350-hour Professional Certification with the (NQA) and a 200-hour Teacher Certification with the (IIQTC) under Master Teacher Dr. Roger Jahnke where Medical Qigong was encouraged as a way to access and activate the natural healing capability within each of us.
Henderson has since earned the advanced certification of Sr. Trainer with the (IIQTC) and has served as Lead Assistant on a 2013 and 2018 trip to China where he studied under 17th Generation Master Zhou Jin Bo. Henderson has studied with a number of exceptional teachers including Master Gladys Kennedy with Meditative Fitness and under Master Shi Xing Hao of the Shaolin King Fu Academy in Houston, Texas.
Leveraging a BS degree in Management and Marketing, 20 years of experience in the insurance and employee benefits business, and a clear correlation between medical claims and the habits that drive them, Henderson formed Living Well Therapies in 2007. Founded on the understanding that each individual has the unique responsibility for managing him or her SELF, Henderson is committed to holistic wellness solutions that harness the power of our potential to exercise conscious control of our SELF; (our thinking, feeling & doing).
Over 10 years with a record of improving Self-Evaluation Assessments (SEA), using pre-program to post-program results, Henderson’s unique approach to conscious self-governance has become a legitimate asset for innovative companies seeking to establish a culture of wellness and a competitive advantage that positively moves the needle on stress & productivity for the people hired to drive profits. Meeting the needs of our “grow on the go” society, as CEO, Henderson & a highly skilled team launched MeTime24/7.com (MT) in 2018. Accessible via cell phone, tablet, computer or TV, (MT) is a visually vibrant conscious media platform delivering self-mastery and Qigong & Tai Chi lessons directly to subscribers, wherever they are, whenever they need it.
In 2017 following the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey, Henderson was trained under Dr. James Gordon and the Center for Mind Body Medicine (CMBM) where he lead trauma relief training for the City of Houston, (HCDD). Henderson is a Sr. Fellow with the American Leadership Forum (ALF), graduating in 2013 from Medical Class 5 where the focus was on “Disruptive Innovation” applied to improving the health care system.
