Bio of Sifu Joe Martin
Sifu Joe Martin, Founder of CHI (the Center for Holistic Instruction, LLC), has long been a practitioner of holistic and alternative care. His interest in these fields began with studies in martial arts over 50 years ago. In an effort to help his students work through their muscle pain as they progressed in their martial arts skills, Sifu Martin learned about trigger points. This education led him to massage therapy and then on to a number of related therapeutic techniques.

He is a certified Tai Chi, Qigong instructor, Massage and Bodywork Therapist, a Grandmaster and founder of Esoma Kungfu (Awarded “Grand Master of the Year” in 2004 by the World Head of Family Sokeship Council’s International Martial Arts Achievement Award). Joe teaches massage and bodywork therapies, qigong and tai chi regularly in Germany.
