Kevin W Chen, Ph.D. MPH
Located in Langfang Development Zone (Hebei province, China), the Ovation Health Management Group is a secret “black horse” under the Ennova energy group (ENN, a public-traded energy company). There are three main branches or relatively independent operations in this health group: Research Institute of Health, the Center for Three Healings (the theme of Wellness & healing), and Seven Cultivation Academy with Seven-Cultivation Hotel (cultivating the virtue & life). This is an important and strategical step or platform for Ennova Energy Group to march toward the rising industry of Health and Wellness (where the wealth flows to the next decade).
I spent three days at the Center for Three Healing and the Health Hotel recently, as my third visit to the Center within one year. I was invited to participate in a full day of “Mind-body support for a total protection from cancer” activities, including keynote lecture on Stress and Self-Healing in Cancer Recovery, mindfulness walking practice and workshop to teach health Qigong exercises. During my stay I visited the Center for Three Healing and the Academy of Seven Cultivations again. I also experienced a complete physical examination by the state-of-art biological micro-magnetic detecting system, and met with the group leaders to discuss the possible cooperation in the next step.

Energy Foot-Therapy — Modern medicine considers foot as “the second heart,” which has numberless nerve endings connected closely with the brain, and related to human health.

By stimulating these acupoints, it help promoting blood-qi flow, adjusting organ functions, smoothing body’s entire meridian so as to achieve the goal of getting ride of sickness, breaking the blockage, and nourishing the healthy qi,

Through consciously observing the current moment, and living at the moment without any judgement, we will be able to awaken the inner power of mindfulness, so as to defeat the negative energy such as frustration, depression or anxiety, and get rid of the negative emotions and mental toxin. After all, mindfulness-based stress reduction originated from the Chinese Buddhism tradition — Zen practice.

Through ancient technique of yoga and Qigong meditation, the nightly meditation help client to quietly feel various events during the day, let the upper-active mind enter into a calm and quiet state, relax body-mind-spirit, which assist reducing fatigue and falling asleep easily.
Su-Wen — a vegetarian restaurant run by the affiliated 5-star hotel, introduce an action philosophy in life. here clients learn to reject big belly and trash food, enjoy the scientific wellness vegetarian management, and become healthier by eating right.
During my stay I had two lunch at the Suwen restaurant, one of the five restaurants in the health-theme hotel at Ovation Health. The 9 or 10-course vegetarian foods are artistic, beautiful, phenomenal and very tasty. I show a few picture below as examples, and highly recommend it for my friends who have chance to visit there.

Health Assessment is important step in the health management system. Their health assessment system includes quantum medical exam, biological medical exam, and Chinese medicine diagnosis and exam, which will understand the current health state from multiple dimensions so as to offer the direction for improvement. The physical examination or check-up at the Center include analysis of body components, mental-stress analysis, EKG, glucose metabolism, biological micro-magnetic detecting, TCM diagnosis, anus diagnosis and so on.
During my visit to the Center, the most interesting and eye-catching equipment is probably the newly designed health-monitoring “magic” mirror (Hi-mirror), which monitor user’s daily physical and mental condition by simply taking some photos of face and tongue when you use the mirror, then offer warning and recommendation for a better health! This is designed by professionals at the Ovation Health, and has been shown in some Health Exhibitions, and received many appraisal and positive feedback. A smaller portable version of health-monitoring mirror is on its way.
I personally experienced a check-up by the biological micro-magnetic detecting system, which is a new technology of noninvasive comprehensive health examination. Through the analysis of small urine samples, it gives details results (in hundreds of data points) of the organs, nutrition, environmental toxins, and psychological emotions, as well as the personalized recommendations. I get four “books” of examining results and suggested healthy actions. According to the reports of people who took the test, the results are pretty accurate in general.
After visiting the Center for Three-Healing, I feel that this is the place that brings together the most up-to-date and essential holistic health concept, talent, wisdom and equipment in modern medicine, especially Chinese medicine. It is indeed a great place for healthy living and complete harmony in body, mind and spirit.
