Lesson 68 – Qigong Exercises For Spleen And Stomach (Replay of Live Qigong Class)
In the video on this page you’ll learn two simple Qigong exercises for spleen and stomach. As a result, you encourage more Qi flow around these abdominal organs and create a feeling of lightness inside the abdomen. It was taught by myself, Dr. Janice Tucker, the founder of the Space To Relax Programme of Qigong video lessons.

Qigong Exercises For Spleen And Stomach – Introduction
I made this video in response to a request from one of my Qigong students. She wanted to learn some Qigong in order to help relieve feelings of “falling down” in the lower abdominal area, heaviness and dragginess.
In terms of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) some of the functions of the Spleen system include:
- Governing the whole of digestion and the other organs involved in this process
- Keeping things in their proper place; blood in the blood vessels, internal organs where they should be, developing babies in the uterus.
- Circulating Qi (and warmth) to the extremities of the body (hands and feet).
When Spleen is not functioning in an optimal way the following symptoms may be observed as a result:
- Easy bruising;
- Prolapse of, for example, bladder and uterus;
- Digestive issues;
- Cold hands and feet.
The Qigong exercises in the video on this page will help you with draggy, heavy and bloated feelings in the abdomen. As a result, they will help give you a lift, both physically and mentally.
Qigong Exercises For Spleen And Stomach – Method
- Sitting or Standing Posture – you can practice this exercise either position.
- Raising Up A Single Hand – one of the Eight Pieces of Brocade Qigong exercise to help create the conditions for open and free flow of Qi through the Spleen and Stomach organs resulting in a healthier digestive organs.
- Qigong Meditation – use the breath and mind to ground yourself as you exhale and lift up internal abdominal organs as you inhale.
- Consolidate your practice with a few abdominal breaths.
