Qi Gong Forms and their application
Eight Pieces of Brocade
This form is attributed to the General Chong Li-quan from the Han Dynasty. It was first mentioned in an 8th century Daoist text. It is a series of gentle stretching exercises that work the tendons and muscles, along with stimulating the meridians and organ systems through specific movement patterns. This is a good foundational Qi Gong exercise set for overall health and wellness. It contains elements of Daoist, Medical and Martial styles.
Shamanic Tiger (Laohu Gong)
This Qi Gong form is a 24 movement form from the Mount Emei Sage Style used to improve health and the immune system, awaken energy and healing capabilities, improve mobility and connects one spiritually to universal energy. It combines elements from ancient shamanism, Confucianism, Daosim, traditional Chinese medicine and martial arts.Master Zhongxian Wu is the lineage holder of this style
Radiant Tiger Magnetic Palm
This form is a set of advanced Taoist forms, which are a part of the 400-year-old Emeishan White Tiger Kung Fu lineage. This style builds energy both in the kidneys which are important organs within Chinese Medicine theory as well as bring Qi to the palms. This internal energy is useful for martial arts as well as healing capabilities of healers. I learned this style under the teaching of Healer - Gary Blaze
Medical Qi Gong Forms
This is a series of Medical Qi Gong methods, many of which are seated meditations. These are the forms taught to me directly by Grandmaster T.K.Shih. These exercises or methods will involve focus on certain points along the meridians, organs or the whole meridians themselves. Breathing, posture and mind intent will be key elements. Consistent practice of the methods will facilitate healing and return of balance within the physical body.
