Moving Qi in the Body and Dragon & Tiger Medical Qi Gong
There are two methods of moving qi energy in the body: direct and indirect. Indirect movement of qi is what occurs in practice of Dragon and Tiger Qi Gong when the hand makes contact with the etheric field, which causes an energetic jump in the wei qi (found just under the skin).
In this video, I explain the distance at which you want to move your hands in relation to your body–not only in Dragon and Tiger, but any qi gong set you practice–to stimulate indirect qi flow. I also discuss the three factors that influence whether direct or indirect qi flow will be more powerful and beneficial for you.
I teach Dragon and Tiger Qi Gong as one of only two Level 3 instructors in Europe as certified by my teacher, Taoist Master Bruce Franztis, who brought Dragon and Tiger to the West. Learn more about Dragon and Tiger Qi Gong…
I’d be interested to get your feedback on how practising Dragon and Tiger (or any Five Element Qi Gong set) has helped you cultivate qi. And, if I can clear up any questions you might have about how to develop qi, simply post them below.
