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 we will wash the face. When we wash the face we should touch Ying Xiang Points 迎香穴 by the sides of nostrils of the nose, the eyes, the top of the head, the back of the head, the ears, jaw, chin and mouth, before going back to the nose. This forms a full circle, from the nose the top of the head, back of the head, back to the mouth and then returning to the nose. Will you repeat this circle three times. This movement helps the Qi go to the head and stimulate the eyes, nose, ears, and even the tongue. These five parts we call External Organs and this is because they relate to the internal organs. The eyes relate to the liver, the nose relates to the lungs, the ears relate to the kidneys, the mouth relates to the spleen and the tongue relates the heart. When we rub the face and touch the external organs the Qi will go back into the internal which means the energy will be stored in the internal organs. Therefore all the Qi we have developed during a practice will go to our internal organs, so we have more Qi and the more Qi we have the healthier we are.
