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.

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

Extra Channels 奇 經 八 脈 pt8 The last of the Eight Extra Mai are the Yin Jue Mai 陰蹻脈 and the Yang Jue Mai 陽蹻脈. Jue 蹻 means bridge, but this bridge is connected to the legs and is not the normal bridge qiao 橋. So obviously these two mai connect with the legs […]

Extra Channels 奇 經 八 脈 pt7 The next of the 8 extra channels we will look at is the Yin Wei Mai 陰維脈.  This starts inside the calf at the Zhu Bin 築賓 point, rises up the leg to the stomach, passing through the chest to the Tian Tu 天突 finishes at the Lian Quan 廉泉 point under […]

Eight Extra Channels 奇 經 八 脈 pt5 Now we have looked at Ren Ma i任脈 ,Du Mai 督脈 and Dai Mai帶脈 we will now look at the most important channel, the Chong Mai 衝脈.  If the Chong Mai is clear and smooth than all the other channels, Twelve Main Channels 十二經絡 and the Eight Extra Channels […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #160

Eight Extra Channels 奇 經 八 脈 pt4 After talking about the Ren Mai 任脈and the Du Mai 督脈we now look at. Dai Mai literally means Belt Channel and it is like a belt that goes around the waist.  For normal people the Dai Mai is not full and so does not go completely around the waist. The […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #159

Eight Extra Channels 奇 經 八 脈 pt3 In previous articles we have already mentioned how the Ren Mai 任 脈 flows along the front of the chest, from the Huiyin 會陰 point up to the Cheng Jiang 承漿 point. This means the Qi flows up from the bottom of the Lower Dantian, between the legs, up […]

Grandmaster Yang Meijun 楊梅君 pt 7 During that period of time, Qigong became very popular.  Many people began practising Qigong and also discovered the benefits of Qigong for their health.

Qigong for Ying Qi 营氣 and Wei Qi 衛氣 If we practise Qigong in our early days, when we are a child or a teenager, then we will have a better result when we are older. This is normal, just the same as if you buy a new car and look after it, service and […]

Wei Qi 衛氣 Yuan Qi 元氣 and Zong Qi 宗氣 come together and become Ying 营氣 and Wei Qi 衛氣. Ying Qi is the Qi that flows along the channels keeping the supply of nutrients, mainly from food and drink, reaching the organs. Wei Qi is protecting Qi and so is the Qi that protects […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #138

 Ying Qi 营氣 Yuan Qi 元氣 and Zong Qi 宗氣 together give us two kinds of Qi. One of them is Ying Qi营氣, which mean Nourishing Qi. This means it nourishes our body or stays inside the body to nourish the internal organs. Ying Qi flows through the 12 main channels and finally will flow along the […]

Prenatal 先天之氣 and Postnatal Qi 後天之氣 Yuan Qi 元氣 and Zong Qi 宗氣 are the foundations of our Vital Energy – our Qi. Yuan Qi comes from our parents and so affects our genetics. We carry the energy from our parents and so if they were tall, short, strong or weak etc. then this will […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #136

 Zong Qi 宗氣 Once we are born, we eat and drink in order to get our energy. Of course we also breathe and we cannot stop breathing for too long otherwise we will die. Therefore we rely on breathing, eating food and drinking to keep us living and growing.  This energy comes from outside the […]

Sitting on the Grass After a good practice lying on the grass is not good. How about sitting on the grass to do meditation after practicing, is this a problem? Actually this is not a problem. So what is the difference between lying on the grass to rest or sleep and sitting on the grass […]

Tired and Sleepy After a good practice, some people will feel tired and want to go to sleep. If we feel tired then going to sleep is fine, but the best thing is to sleep first and then practice. When we are tired we should sleep. After sleeping we feel better and then we practice, […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #130

Talk Too Much When we practice Qigong, we gather Qi from nature around us and also release our negative Qi. In this way we balance ourselves, so a good environment, good nature and fresh air around us are important as this gives us good Qi. This is how our bodies work with nature, we become […]

Sky and Earth The weather can affect our Qi but so does the sky and the earth. When we are able to practice outside, we normally choose a place where we can see the sky and also connect with the earth.   Sometimes though, we might be able to see the sky but we cannot relate to the […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #128

Weather Affects our Qi If the weather is bad, raining heavily, snowing heavily or even a very hot day, do we practice outside?  Of course we do not.

My Qigong Journey – part 1 When I was 11 years old, my father took me to see the Bruce Lee 李小龍 movie The Big Boss.  I was so impressed.

Relationship Starts Every relationship is based on two sides. If one side is not happy then it is hard to keep that relationship going.

Bai Si 拜師 Part 2 The Sifu 師父 would then tell the student of the rules of his skill, for example, “Respect the teacher and respect the skill,” and the student would reply, ” Yes,  I will follow.” This is quite a serious ceremony that lets heaven and earth know who is the Sifu and […]

Seniors Helping Juniors and Beginners In class the teacher is in charge. He might not teach everybody, but he should oversee everything that is going on in the class. In the past teachers often did not have that many students, sometimes only one or two, so it was very easy for the teacher to teach […]

Like a Family I have five teachers who taught me amazing skills, Dayan Qigong, Wing Chun, Chun Yuen Quan, Taijiquan ad Hard Qigong.  Even now I have a good relationship with all of them.

Good Beginning Not as Good as Good Ending 好頭不如好尾 A lot of students can have a good relationship with the teacher in the beginning. Even the teacher might like them a lot and he or she would not mind teaching them everything because the skills need to be passed down. Any teacher who keeps the skill and does […]

Building a Good Relationship with the Teacher When we go to a class to study, the one thing we want to do is learn. Of course, in the beginning we might not know how could the teacher is so we just try it out.  If we find the teacher has good skill which we would like to know, […]

Techer Student Relationship Today the teacher and student relationship is different; nowadays it seems that students choose the teacher. This is all because of advertising for example on the Internet. Everybody will say they are good, but how can you tell who is better?  Of course, we will think that if someone is more well known then they are generally better. […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #104

Spend Time Together In the past, a teacher would not easily choose a student until they found someone who was good enough. If the student was a young child, child would leave his or her family and go to live with the teacher. The parents would allow this and be happy for their child to be chosen. Of course the […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #103

Teacher and Student In traditional Chinese teaching, teachers and students were very close, like father and son. Even if the teacher was a lady the relationship was still like father and son and not like a mother and son.  The relationship was one of respect and care. The teacher would treat the student like they were one of their own children, […]

Watching and Being Around the Teacher As teachers, we do not just watch the beginners do their movements, we must also demonstrate so the student, so they can see how the movement should look. At the beginning new students cannot see the difference between their movements and ours, but the more they see our movements […]

Two Movements at a Time So when beginners start to learn Qigong they must learn slowly and then everything step by step. The student should not try and take too much and the Sifu should not teach too much, talk too long or concentrate on knowledge and detail. The teacher should give them clear and […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #99

Learn Slowly & Learn the Shape of the Movements Whenever beginners start learning Qigong, they should take it slowly and learn step by step. This is true for many things, but especially true for Qigong since it requires you to learn movements, which many people are not used to doing. Today, remembering things is not […]

Six Passions六慾 part 1 As human beings, we all have passions.  We all want things, we want to indulge ourselves.

7 Emotions 七情 We all have emotions; however how we describe them and classify them can vary. There is a traditional Chinese way to classify the emotions to be seven: Happiness, anger, worry, over thinking, sadness, fear and shock 喜怒憂思悲恐驚.  All these make us lose our energy or Qi氣. Somebody may look happy, but if they are just laughing and it is external, for example like having fun look for […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #94

Change the Emotions and Reactions We are all human and we all have emotions. Sometimes we are happy, sometimes we are sad, sometimes we are angry and sometimes we are depressed. There is a Buddhist saying, “human life is full of worry.”  This is quite right.  No matter whether we have a lot of money and are famous, or poor and have […]

Healer feels Good After Healing Some healers, after using their energy, say they feel good and even excited. Do you know why? This is because they are past the tired feeling. After the tired feeling their energy will be up, but this is not the energy we should be using because this their prenatal energy […]

Slapping and Horse Stance When I use Qigong healing to treat my patients I will receive some negative Qi from them. Sometimes it makes me feel tired. I still remember my Sifu, Yang Meijun (who I called Lai Lai)  saying, ” Save your Qi!”  We must listen to our bodies and we should know how much we can give, and when […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #91

Slapping to Get Rid of Negative Qi When we feel negative Qi inside the body we need to get rid of it. It is the same when we find  our clothes are dirty we need to wash them, so releasing negative Qi is a bit like washing our clothes -we need to scrub the stains with soap. The Qigong way of […]

Negative Qi Stays Inside Any doctors, therapists, masseuses or healers are very hard-working people because they are in contact with sick people all the time and take their negative energy. When we have a good level of Qigong our bodies are healthier and we can sense and feel the energy around us.  We can tell if other people’s energy will affect us or when […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #89

Healer Must be Healthy What do you think about someone who does not have enough Qi氣, but gives their Qi to other people? Anyone can actually give their Qi to another person, the real point is whether the patient gets  some benefit or is harmed,  or even  if the healer loses a lot of Qi […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #88

Cultivate Qi Before Healing If we want to have the power to heal, we have to have more Qi氣, just like we need to have more petrol (or gas) to drive a long way. How do we get more Qi? We must practise Qigong氣功. Qi氣 is energy, Gong功 is work, so work for the energy. […]

Palm Healing When our Qi氣 is strong we can use it to heal other people. It is like having more money, when we have more we can spend more and buy more things, it is as simple as that.  When we give people our Qi, or we usually transmit this Qi from our body through […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #86

Listen to our Qi If we practise our Qigong氣功 regularly and still get ill, this is because our Qi功is not strong enough to overcome the problem. This means that we must be using more Qi than we gain. It is simple mathematics, plus and minus. The more Qi we gain the healthier we are. The […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #85

Daily Practise We should first be able to diagnose our own problems and where the problem is. Then we practise to work on that area. Sometimes we do not actually need to know where the area is, we just practise our Qigong氣功 every day. Twice a day is better, once in the day time and […]

Master Tse’s Qigong Dao #84

Feeling the Negative Qi We are not only just can feel other people’s negative Qi氣 and the environments negative Qi. When our Qi is strong we can also feel our own negative Qi.

Horse Stance馬步樁 Part 5 Practising Horse Stance can become quite addictive. Why is this? It is because the Qi flows very strongly and the feeling and sensations in the body. When we go to the Low Position we will find that we breathe very quickly. This is because we need more Qi to come in […]

Chong Mai 衝脈 What is the most important channel or Mai? The answer is it is the Chong Mai 衝脈. Why is this? The first thing we have to realise is that in Qigong the Chong Mai follows a slightly different path to that in acupuncture charts, why is this? The system of channels and […]
