Master Tse’s Qìgōng Dāo 256

Sānjiāo 三焦 – Triple Warmer – Part 3 When the Sānjiāo 三焦 has a problem, the Qì will not be able to pass through from one Jiāo 焦 to another. It might be that the Qì cannot pass from the Shàngjiāo 上焦– Upper Warmer down to the Xiàjiāo 下焦 – Lower Warmer. Generally the Qì […]

Master Tse’s Qìgōng Dāo 255

Sānjiāo 三焦 – Triple Warmer – Part 2 The Sānjiāo 三焦 is not one of the organs, but it is treated as one and just as important. It is a Yáng organs, which we call Fǔ 腑 and it also has its own Jīngluò 經絡 – channel. Only organs have their own Jīngluò and it […]

Master Tse’s Qìgōng Dao 254

Sānjiāo 三焦 – Triple Warmer – Part 1 The body has five Yīn organs, which we call Zàng 臟, and six Yáng organs, which we call Fǔ腑. Zàng refers the organs that are more inside the body an so more internal. These are the liver, heart, spleen, lungs and kidneys. We all know that these […]

Sì Shén Cōng  四神聰 – Part 4 Once the Bǎihuì and the Sì Shén Cōng 四神聰 are open, it is like the main gate being open and so a lot of Qi can come out from the head. Many points will be open like the Běn Shén 本神,Shéntíng 神庭, Yùzhěn 玉枕, Fēng Fǔ 風府,Fēng Chí […]

Master Tse’s Qìgōng Dao 252

Sì Shén Cōng 四神聰– Part 3 It is not easy to develop our Qì to push up to the Bǎihuì point 百會穴 and so it is not easy to open this acupuncture point. It is not easy to open because around the Bǎihuì point  there are four guards. We call these Sì Shén Cōng 四神聰. […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 251

Sì Shén Cōng 四神聰 – Part 2 If we want to get the Qì 氣up to the Upper Dāntián 上丹田, to the Sky Eye, there is one very important channel that we must open, this is the Chōng Mài 衝脈. The Chōng Mài runs from the Yǒngquán Point 涌泉穴 to the Huìyīn point 會陰穴 and […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 250

Sì Shén Cōng 四神聰  – Part 1 We practice Qìgōng 氣功 to make us healthy. Through practicing Qìgōng we collect and cultivate Qì 氣 from nature and the environment around us. We all know that practising outside, in nature and in a good environment is better than practising in bad surrounding and indoors. When we […]

External Affects the Internal – Part 3 Once we understand that the external body and the internal body are connected, are related to each other and affect one another, we can apply this principle to many things. Take our relationships for example. We need to work together whether it is husband and wife, partner and […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 248

External Affects the Internal- Part 2 Qìgōng movements are based on relaxation. Often people only see our arms, legs and body moving but actually this movement is working on the internal organs. In nature there is always two parts and this is the principle of Yīn and Yáng. Chinese people discovered the principle of nature […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 247

External Affects the Internal – Part 1 In our bodies we have two parts, one which we can control – like our arms, legs and eyes, ears, but there is one part that we cannot control – for example our heart, lungs, kidney and the other internal organs. The first part is our external body […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 246

Environment Part 6 We need to trust our senses, trust our Qi. If we practise Qigong regularly, whenever we go to a new place, we can sense if it has a good environment and good Qi. Even if we move to a new office, we will know if it is a good office to work […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 245

Environment – Part 5 If we practise Qigong regularly, we will actually never choose to stay or live in a bad environment. This is because we feel good every time we finish practising and then we will have better senses. Whenever we go to a bad environment or place we will not feel good and […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 244

Environment – Part 4 In the beginning, when we first begin to practise Qigong we just feel good. This is a good start. Then as we practise more we will feel even better and we like this feeling. It is just like cats who like to stay in a warm place, especially in the winter. […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 243

Environment – Part 3 Some people might say, “I don’t have a lot of money, how can I live in a better environment?” We have to find or create a good environment to live and work in, it is not about making more money. First we have to make ourselves healthy and we do this […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 242

Environments – Part 2 When we practise Qigong a lot we will find that we like to be in good environments that have plenty of fresh air and sunshine, where there are more green plants and more space. These good environments give us good energy. If we have never practised Qigong, then we feel the […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 241

Environments – Part 1 There are many people who live in the countryside. In the countryside, the air is better, there are more trees and less cars. When they go into the city, they find that it is very polluted and find it very difficult to breathe and suffer from more allergies. They would not […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 240

Single Movement Part 4 If we have a back problem, which exercises from Balancing Gong and Healthy Living Gong will be good for us? First we can think about which movements move our waist more, this leads us to “Beautiful Woman Turns the Waist”, “Turning the Head and Twisting the Tail” and “Roc Extends its […]

Master Tse Qigong Dao 239

Single Movement Part 3 There are many single movement Qigong exercises in Balancing Gong and Healthy Living Gong. Each movement has its own healing purpose. If we understand Qigong well, then we will understand the benefits of each movement. For example, if you have a headache, you will know which movement is good for this. […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 238

Single Movements Pt 2 Each single Qigong movement has a benefit which is quite obvious. For example in Balancing Gong we have the first movement “Holding the Dantian” where we put our hands over our Dantian. It is the simplest movement for beginners and everyone can practise it easily. However, it teaches the most fundamental […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 237

Single Movements Pt 1 We all know that we practise Qigong to makes us healthier, the more we practise the healthier we get. However we will not be 100% healthy, because we use our energy when we do other things, our work, when we communicate with other people etc. Other people can affect us and […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 236

Ying Qigong 硬氣功 The second type of Qigong is Ying Qigong 硬氣功– Hard Qigong and so Ying 硬 means hard. Soft and hard balance each other, we cannot just practise Ruan Qigong 軟氣功, without Ying, even if we just practise Horse Stance 馬步 or Healthy Living Gong Part 3’s 健康生活功第三節 Tiger Pushes the Mountain or […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 235

Ruan Qigong 軟氣功 When we study Qigong we should know there are two kinds. One is soft, which we call Ruan軟, so Ruan Qigong軟氣功. This is what we normally practise in class, Balancing Gong 平衡功, Healthy Living Gong 健康生活功 and Wild Goose Qigong 大雁氣功 etc. The character for Ruan軟 is made up of two parts. […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 234

Wai Gong 外功 Practising Qigong we have Nei Gong 內功, which is internal training, however we also have Wai Gong 外功 – external training. Many people only think about internal training for their Qigong, however, Qigong also has external training in order to balance the internal training. Like we have our warm ups and Chun […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 233

Nei Gong 內功 Qigong is internal training. We call this Nei Gong 內功. Nei 內 means inside and together with Gong 功, Nei Gong means internal training. But what does internal training mean? It means that the purpose of all our movements and meditation is to work on the inside of the body, like the Qi, the blood, […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 232

Kwai 快 – Fast In Qigong, when we practise movements slowly, this is called Man 慢 – slow. The opposite to Man (slow) is quick and this in Chinese is Kwai 快.  Chinese philosophy, whether it is Buddhism, Daoism or Rujia 儒家 (Confucianism), teaches that everything must have an opposite side. We must balance both […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 231

Man 慢 – Slow In Qigong we move slowly. Slow movements allow you to feel your body. Practising Qigong helps us to feel the internal body and this is a healthy thing. Some people fail to feel their internal body and this is because they never relax enough. Only when you can really relax can […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 230

Dong Gong 動功 In Qigong we have Jing Gong 静功. Quiet and still exercises like meditation. These help us to calm down and settle. We also have Dong Gong動功. Dong 動 means moving, so these are like our forms. Stillness and movement, this is balance, we need both. When we practise Qigong we always do […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 229

Jing 靜 When we practise Qigong we also need Jing靜. Jing means quiet. The mind and heart need to be Jing (quiet). The character for Jing is written in two parts. The first part is Qing青, means Green. In the old times it also meant Spring. Spring is the beginning for the year and the […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 228

Ren 忍 When we practise Qigong we also need Ren 忍 – patience. Many people have asked me, “How long will take before I can heal other people?” I always answer, “To heal others you first need to be healthy.” How long does it take to become healthy? This all depends on the condition you […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 277

Xin 心 Last time we said to practise Qigong we needed Yi 意, but we also need Xin 心 – heart. As we know, Yi is focus. It starts from one’s heart and so we want to do it. When we want to do something we do it with focus and we push ourselves to […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 226

Yi 意 – part 2 When we practise Qigong we should focus and concentrate on our movements, this is Yi 意. The Chinese character for Yi is a combination of three characters: 立 Li means stand 曰  Yue means say 心 Xin means heart All together it means a person tells what their heart wants. […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 225

Yi意 and Qi氣 What is Yi意? Yi means mind or thinking. When we do Qigong we still need to think, we need to think about what we are doing and not become distracted by other thoughts. We should therefore focus on what we are doing, like Balancing Gong, focus on the movements and relax the […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 224

Bone Qi 骨氣 At the end of my classes we always practise Ma Bu 馬步– Horse Stance. Many students begin with a high position. After a while, once they are used to it they will follow some of the other students and stand in a medium stance. The seniors always try to practise in a […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 223

Qi and Strength When we finish practising Qigong not only do we feel healthier, but we feel physically stronger. This is because Qi and strength come together. When someone is sick, they are physically weaker. Some find it hard to walk far, walk upstairs or even stand for any length of time. If we are […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 222

Qi and Blood After practising our Qigong we feel warm, particularly our hands and feet. Many students, when they first come to class have cold hands and feet, but after a few months of Qigong practice, they start to feel warmer, some even feel warm after just one lesson! This is all about our Qi. […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 221

Practise When Our Energy is Low Qi plays a very important part in our health. When our Qi drops we will begin to feel weak and tired. If we keep losing Qi, then we will become sick. If more Qi is lost then we become very sick and if we lose even more, and then […]

Chinese Horoscopes for 2020

Many people have asked me whether 2020 will be a good year. I always say, “Yes it will be a good year,” because for me every year is a good year! Of course there will be problems and trouble that comes to me but this is life. I will deal with these things instead of […]

Feng Shui of 2020

When we study Feng Shui, we need to know the energy of the year. For this we need to know the basics, like the original Nine Star positions: The Stars are: Relationship and travelling Illnesses Argument Study, Job and Business Disaster Surprising Money, Benefits Lost Money Income Celebration and Parties Once we know these basics, […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 211

Foot Yang Ming Stomach Jing 足陽明胃經 The last Jing we looked at was the Hand Yang Ming Large Intestine Jing 手陽明大腸經, and the last acupuncture point on this Jing was the Yinxiang Point 迎香穴 by the side of the nostril. This Jing then flows into the Foot Yang Ming Stomach Jing 足陽明胃經. This starts in […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 207

Three Hand Yang Jing Since we have Three Hand Yin Jing and Three Foot Yin Jing, we must have Three Hand Yang Jing and Three Foot Yang Jing. Again, “three” because there are three kinds of Yang, Tai Yang 太陽, Yang Ming 陽明 and Shao Yang 少陽. From before we already will already have worked […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 206

Three Yin Leg Jing We also have three Yin Foot Jing which are on the inside of the legs. All the Yin Jing are more hidden, like three Yin Hand Jing are on the palms of the hands and run up and down the inside of the arms to the armpits. So the three Yin […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 205

Three Yin Hand Jing We have twelve channels and we now know that there are six Yin channels and six Yang Channels. In Chinese we call these Jinglou 經絡. Jing 經 means channel, or an orbit. Lou 絡 means net. So it means that in the Jinglou the channels cover the body like net. Within […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 204

Qi Flows to the Organ Channels Chinese ancestors were very clever discovering acupuncture points and channels. This was over 3000 years ago and was all based on observations of nature and the feeling in the body and how it relates to the environment. Relaxation is the key, as observation and awareness become much clearer. They […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 203

Zang Fu臟腑  (Yin and Yang Organs) If we look at the relationship between the time and internal organ channels, we can see that they come in pairs. Each pair has one Yang internal organ and one Yin internal organ, we call them Zang Fu ,Zang is Yin organs are more important. The Yin organs are: […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 202

Channels of the Day We understand that the time, day, month and year all relate to our internal organs. Now we need to know that each organ has its own channel and acupuncture points, so if the channel is stimulated then the organ is stimulated as well. The same with the acupuncture points, if the […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 201

Four Energies Connect Everywhere In certain countries and places, Summer and Winter can be very long or very short. Even the days can be very long or very short and this means the night time is also very long or very short. However, they are no different to any other area since they can still […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 200

Energy of the Year If we look at the whole year, in a similar way we looked at a day, then we can also split into four different times. Spring is like the Morning and the Liver become stronger just like the plants starting to grow. Summer is hot, nowadays it is even hotter than before because of […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 199

Energy of the Day Every morning when we wake up one of the first things we do is check the weather. We look at the temperature and if there is a clear sky. If the weather is going to be good and there is a clear sky we already start feeling good. However, if the weather […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 198

Teeth – Part 2 Apart from practising Horse Stance, is there any other way to train our teeth? We can train out teeth same way as a baby does. Babies like to bite on things so even adults can use those soft chewy teethers. Even as adults we still need to use our teeth and train […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 197

Teeth – Part 1 The mouth, tongue and teeth are all connected.  I often hear of people who have teeth problems and less who say they have a problem with their mouth or tongue.  It’s true, if there is a problem with the mouth or tongue, after a couple of days, weeks or even a […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 196

Tongue – Part 4 If we take a look inside the mouth, we will see there are some acupuncture points we can stimulate by moving the mouse and the tongue. Doing this will create a lot of saliva and this is good for the digestive system and also calming the mind. We can also massage […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 195

Tongue – Part 3 Sometimes an ulcer can form underneath the tongue.  These are uncomfortable and can be quite painful, particularly when we are eating very juicy and sour food, for example oranges. When we look in a mirror we can see the ulcer and sometimes we can see cold sores around the mouth and […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 194

Tongue – Part 2 As part of a diagnosis, Chinese doctors will always look at a patient’s tongue. This is because on the tongue we can see the problems with our internal organs. For example, if the tongue is too red this means there is too much fire, too much Yang in the body and […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 193

The Tongue – Part 1 When we have massaged the acupuncture points around mouth and also exercised the mouth, we can then stimulate the tongue as well. The tongue relates to the heart. The mouth relates to the spleen. If the spleen has a problem, the digestive system will have a problem and so the mouth will […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 192

Mouth – Part 2 Our saliva can tell us whether we are healthy or not. If we are healthy there will be plenty of saliva and it will taste sweet, but if we are not, the saliva will be bitter or nasty. This is because the illness happens inside the body, gen in the internal […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 191

Mouth – Part 1 The mouth is very important part of the body, need it eat and talk. When the mouth has a problem we cannot eat and cannot speak.  So to take care of it, there are some exercises we can do. Outside of the mouth we have certain acupuncture points like, Ren Shiu […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 190

The Nose – Part 5 Did you know that some people can lose their sense of smell? For example a decorator who paints walls with a lot of strong smelling paints will not be able to smell the chemicals in the paint so much. A smoker will not be able to smell their cigarette smoke […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 189

The Nose – Part 4 Our nose is for breathing but also for smelling things. It is can recognise the smell of things whether they are good or bad. Some people have a “super nose” and can smell things that other people cannot smell even from far away. However, if we are in bad smell […]

Master Tse’ s Qigong Dao 188

The Nose – Part 3 When we breathe through the nose, we are more relaxed than when we breathe with mouth. Some people say they cannot breathe through the nose because of asthma or other blockages. However, we have to train ourselves to do so if we want to be healthy. It may take time, […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 187

Nose – Part 2 Anyone will find it difficult to breathe through the nose if the nose is blocked. As a result of this, a lot of people will just use their mouth to breathe, particularly when they are doing physical exercises, like our warm up Level II, Level III and Level IV in the […]

Master Tse Qigong Dao 186

Nose – Part 1 The nose is another very important part of the body. We need our noses in order to breath, but if the nose has a problem then it makes breathing difficult. Any time our nose is blocked we will feel uncomfortable, find it hard to breathe and in particular, find it hard […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 185

The Ears Part 4 There are two exercises that are very good for the ears. One is Ming Tian Gu 嗚天鼓, which means, Making Sound at the Heavenly Drums. The exercise is a little light playing drums. First we cover our ears with our palms so that our fingers are on the back of our […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 184

The Ears Part 3 If we can look after our ears, then when we are older our hearings will be good. Of course, our genetics make a difference because we inherit many things from our parents and ancestors. If we inherit a weakness in our ears and also injure our ears or cause them other […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 183

The Ears – Part 2 As we get older, generally, we get weaker, so our circulation and flow of Qi is weaker. This means that less Qi and blood goes to our eats. As a result the eardrums become weaker and so the hearing is poorer. In order to take care of our ears, we […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 182

The Ears Part 1 Our ears are very important. We need them to hear so we are aware of the environment around us and when other people want to talk and communicate with us. So sound is important, good sounds have a positive effect on us and they make us relax, for example the sounds […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 181

The Eyes Pt 5 When we practise Qigong regularly enough, the Qi goes to the Sky-eye 天目, which is in the middle of the forehead. Actually the proper area is in our brain, but the entrance is the Sky Eye. When this happens you might even be able to see colours around yourself when you […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 180

The Eyes pt 4 When meditating with their eyes closed, some people will see colours. This is good as it means your Qi is strong and you can see the colours from you internal organs. Green is from the liver. Red, orange or pink are from the heart. Brown and yellow are from the spleen. White, […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 179

The Eyes Pt3 When we wear glasses we should sometimes take them off and try to see without them. Definitely when we are doing the eye exercises we should not wear glasses this is because we really need to use the muscles of the eyes, use our eyes to and this will help our Qi […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 178

The Eyes Pt 2 There is a Qigong way to protect and improve the eyes, which we can do regularly even when we are older. We need train and massage particular acupuncture points around the eyes using two fingers. Using the index and middle fingers rub, tap and circle the following six acupuncture points in […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao 177

The Eyes Pt 1 Human beings all have six senses. These relate to the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind. The six senses are important to us and allow us to be aware of everything happening around us. If our senses are good, we are healthy. Practising Qigong makes us healthy and so makes […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #176

Look Younger and Healthier When we wash the face with our hands we will notice that our face feels smooth and soft, like a young person’s  or even as soft as a baby’s skin. Why is this? Of course, not everybody will have skin this soft after practising, especially if your internal organs have a […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #175

Wash the Face During Shou Gong 收动 Whenever we finish out your practice we will practise some Meditation or Horse Stance. After a few minutes we will then do Shou Gong 收动 to finish.  To begin with we will rub the palms of our hands together in order to make more Qi come to our palms. Then […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #174

Lotus Meditation pt5 There is another way to meditate whilst we are doing Lotus Meditation, and it is something we do when we are feeling healthy, have no blockages and feel good about ourselves. First we sit comfortably in a Lotus Position and relax entire body. When we feel there are no blockages then we […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #173

Lotus Meditation pt4 Once we have found the good position for our Lotus Meditation we then need to make ourselves comfortable so that we can sit for a long time. Relaxation is the key and it is the most important thing. In the beginning we just concentrate on our relaxation and let everything happen naturally. […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #172

Lotus Meditation pt3 Once everything is in the right position and you are sitting in your lotus, you then need to relax the whole body. When we do so we will find our breathing become stronger and a little bit quicker and this is because you want to settle down. Settling down means letting our […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #171

Lotus Meditation pt2 Once we have chosen our lotus position, whether it is a Full Lotus, Single Lotus or Normal Lotus, we need to sit in our backs straight. This means that the Baihui百會 point and the Huiyin 會陰 point are in a vertical line.  You should not drop the head or bend our backs […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #170

Lotus Meditation pt1 During meditation, we can relax the most if we either sit in a lotus position or on a chair. If we stand in a high position we will not relax the whole body as much as sitting in lotus position or on a chair. Usually sitting in lotus position is the best, […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #169

Qigong Dao 169 – Stop Breathing to Open the Acupuncture Points During meditation, in the beginning when we close our eyes we will find out breathing changed again. Sometimes we will breathe in and out in very deep breath and sometimes it will be shallow, this is particularly true when sitting in lotus position or […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #168

Stop Breathing to Open the Acupuncture Points During meditation, in the beginning when we close our eyes we will find out breathing changed again. Sometimes we will breathe in and out in very deep breath and sometimes it will be shallow, this is particularly true when sitting in lotus position or the chair. When the […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #167

Let the Body do the Breathing When we continue practising Qigong we will notice more changes in our breathing. Our body can move fast, slow and any other speed, no matter what we do our breathing will match as long as we are relaxed. Therefore relaxation is the most important thing. Most of the time, […]

Master Tses Qigong Dao #166

Fast and Slow Breathing When we are practising our Qigong, if we find that we are breathing faster than usual what does this mean? Usually this happens when we are doing Horse Stance or other standing positions that do not involve moving. During movement we usually breathe according to the movement however with standing positions there […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #165

Deep and Shallow When we practise Qigong we should notice that our breathing is different from before.  Beginners only focus on breathing in and breathing out with the movements, they do not notice that there are many kinds of breathing for example deep breathing, shallow breathing, fast breathing and slow breathing etc.  What does breathing in these different […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #164
