Qigong for Chest Congestion

Lesson 06 – Qigong For Chest Congestion & Anxiety (Replay of Live Qigong Class)

This is a replay of a live Qigong session showing you some Qigong for chest congestion and anxiety taught by myself, Dr Janice Tucker. I have been teaching Qigong for two decades and am the founder of the Space To Relax Programme of Qigong video lessons. I’m also a practitioner of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. You can join my live classes on Zoom every Tuesday at 10am and Thursday at 4pm Irish time. These lessons will continue for the duration of Covid-19 and until I can return to my face to face Acupuncture/Chinese Medicine clinics.

In this video you can follow along with two tips in order to relieve chest congestion and feelings of anxiety or panic:

1. A simple Qigong stretch to open and promote the flow of Qi from the chest into the arms and hands;

2. The use of the acupuncture point Shanzhong (Ren 17) and how you can apply pressure to this point. This acupressure technique has the effect of helping to unblock congestion in the chest by clearing Phlegm. It also helps to resolve any anxiety and panic, helps calm heart palpitations and helps ease acid indigestion. You can perform this acupressure method when lying in bed at night, focus on abdominal breathing to help relieve stress at the end of the day. You can apply this tip just after performing the Qigong for chest congestion and anxiety stretch above.

In the live class we also spoke about how Qigong could be used to help in the management of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Ear acupuncture came up in this discussion too. The link to find out more about this and how NADA ear acupuncture was used to help emergency workers during 9/11 is here (watch the video on this page as it’s excellent!).
