Qigong Springtime Stretching and Healing Sound For Liver – Introduction
In the northern hemisphere we are well and truly into Springtime which is the time when nature emerges from winter hibernation and resting and begins to grown and literally “Spring” into action. This is also the time of year when we humans begin to feel more active too. As the weather improves we are more inclined to be more active.
[If you live in the southern hemisphere and are currently moving into autumn then you can still practice this routine but you might also want to try this one for the Lung system, the organ system associated with autumn.]
In terms of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Springtime is the associated season of the Liver system. If our Liver Qi is out of balance at this time then it will be apparent in the season of Spring, more than any other.
Our Liver system is responsible for the smooth flow of Qi and Blood (and emotions). Symptoms of imbalance in our Liver system include:
- Neck and shoulder tension;
- Muscle cramps;
- Headaches and migraines;
- One sided aches, pains and symptoms
- Anger and frustration (the associated emotions of Liver).
The good news is that Qigong practice can help you transition smoothly from Winter into Springtime. In the video lesson on this page you can follow along with some simple beginner Qigong exercises to:
- Gently stretch the back, front and sides of your body to encourage the smooth flow of Qi.
- Use one of the Six Healing Sounds to help discharge (get rid of) waste or sick Qi from the body.
Qigong Springtime Stretching and Healing Sound For Liver – Method
- Adopt a Qigong Standing Posture.
- Settle into your practice with a few Abdominal Breaths.
- Gentle stretches for the back, front and sides of the body.
Perform chest opening, upper back stretching and trapezius stretches.
Twist and reach with your hands using the “Polishing the Table Top” movement to stimulate Qi flow through your Liver channel.
Vibrate your body using the knees as springs and turning in the hips to stimulate Qi flow through your waist area.
- Healing Sound For the Liver (Xu).
- Consolidate your practice with a few abdominal breaths.
