Master Lam is a recognised master of the arts of Tai Chi and Chi Kung, a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and a master of Feng Shui. He is perhaps best known as the first person to bring Zhan Zhang Chi Kung - a 'soft' martial art - to the UK, with his ground-breaking book The Way of Energy (published by Gaia Books) and his popular Channel 4 series Stand Still - Be Fit. Master Lam has written many books related to the Chinese understanding of health and culture, including The Feng Shul Handbook, Step-by-Step Tai Chi, and The Way of Healing. The Way of Tea is a family collaboration, combining Master Lam's healing expertise, his wife Kai Sin's knowledge of domestic tradition, and their second son Tin Yu's deep understanding of the Chinese way of life. Master Lam lives in London, and teaches and practices Traditional Chinese Medicine at his clinic near Waterloo.
