“Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.” (Hippocrates)
If you have the time, this is your chance. As you probably know, with time and practice, qi gong may help you heal. Qigong works because the movements are thought to help UNBLOCK THE ENERGY stuck in the meridians. Blocked energy is considered to be the cause of mental and physical illness in Traditional Chinese Medicine. You may experience tingling, warmth, cooling drafts, or similar sensations as the qi starts circulating through your body. My master uses a clear image to explain how the qi starts flowing: an energy block is like a pinched hose. When you follow a qi gong set, you can release some of the blockages allowing the energy to flow, just as water can freely flow through a hose once you undo the pinch. When this happens, your body may release stale qi in different ways, such as yawning, sighing, or anything that moves the body and expels toxins. I often tell my students that I must be the only teacher who is happy when her students yawn! It means that their energy is moving, the body is releasing tension and healing is happening.
In class, I focus on teaching you the movements as much as on helping you feel relaxed. By relaxing your body, keeping a relaxed concentration on the movements, and breathing at a certain pace, you may start connecting to the qi flowing through your body with its healing properties.
