Shou Gong

Shou Gong is the movement we do when we have completely finished our Qigong exercises.

1 Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.

2 Raise both hands to the side of the body up to shoulder height

J When your arms reach shoulder height, bend the elbows and bring the palms past the face, upper body and Dantian.

4 Lower hands down the Ren Channel and on to the Lower Dantian. Do this a further two times.

When you raise the arms, imagine you are gathering all the Qi from the heaven and pouring it into your body. Keep the Laogong points facing the body as you lower the hands past the face to the Lower Dantian. In this way, you open the Yang channels and then transmit Qi down the Yin channels of the body and back into the internal organs.

This is very good for relaxing the mind and body. We can also use this same movement at the beginning of our Qigong exercises, although when we do it in the beginning, we call it Relaxation Movement instead of Shou Gong.

If you can meditate for three to five minutes in the beginning, you are doing very well. You may find that your legs tremble. This is the body's way of releasing negative energy and opening the channels for stronger Qi. When you are tired, move to a higher stance and rest there for a while. Then go lower and stay for as long as you can before coming up again.

APPENDIX

OVER THE LAST FEW years, I have heard from many people to say how practising Healthy Living Gong has helped them recover from some illness or generally improve their health and well being. Others have said that they are much more relaxed and can concentrate better at work and sleep better at night. Below are a few of the letters that I have received from students and which I hope will encourage you in your own practising.

Multiple sclerosis

About 15 years ago, Western doctors diagnosed me with multiple sclerosis, supposedly a debilitating neurological disease which progresses until one loses control of many physical functions. In the first 10 years, I did experience problems with ambulation, vision, numbness and tingling, weakness of the arms and legs, and indeed needed to be hospitalised twice and treated as an outpatient several times with massive doses of steroids.

I began to study Qigong six years ago but it was only two years ago that I finally decided to wholly commit myself to practising Qigong. I can only now appreciate, as I reflect on how Healthy Living Gong (HLG) has impacted on my life, how critical it was in helping me to balance and relax. It feels so good to do Old Tree with Winding Roots.

When my Sifu, Adam Wallace, began teaching HLG, I was puzzled by why we were learning what seemed to me at first to be simpler, more fundamental exercises than the more challenging Wild Goose forms which I had already learned. It became clear by the time I had begun to learn the movement Jade Ladder Climbing to the Sky that this family of exercises was very important and powerful. It was certainly subtle and now I realise quite amazingly how much HLG helps with everyday activities as well as when practising more complex Qigong forms.

Several years ago my neurologist reviewed the results of an MRI brain scan with me, and it revealed that one very large lesion had virtually disappeared. He did not have a medical explanation, but just commented that such changes can occur. That night at class, with MRI films in hand, I ran into class and hugged Sifu and thanked him for helping me to stay healthy. It was a wonderful moment! I also treasure a moment I had during my last visit to the neuro-ophthalmologist. He has always been impressed with how active my lifestyle is and happy that my vision has been fairly stable, yet he still encourages me to consider taking medication. I told him, 'no', once again and urged him to write one simple word in my chart... 'Qigong'.

Insomnia and over-thinking

How does one describe Healthy Living Gong and how do I distinguish it from the other Qigong exercises I have learned like Balancing Gong, Green Sea Swimming Dragon Gong, Jade Pillar Gong or any of the other forms within the Kunlun Dayan system? Language fails to accurately describe subjective experience. Only by personal contact can one begin to understand the nature of something simple yet complex.

After consistent practice and the development of a relaxed awareness during the Healthy Living Gong exercises, one begins to feel the difference of each of the movements. Although similar (all fingerprints look the same upon superficial examination), each movement has a unique 'stamp' that gives it a particular feeling, flavour and purpose.

For me, the special character of Healthy Living Gong is calmness and relaxation. When I practise, I feel all the tension release from my body. I feel rooted to the earth and a part of nature, not an unrelated fragment spinning out of control! For me, Healthy Living Gong is like a moving meditation, so I often use it to centre myself. Life is too fast - brimming with responsibilities, multi-tasking, and over-thinking, especially with three children and a full-time job. So it is wonderful to be able to return to a place of stillness, to gather energy from nature, to remember we are a part of something real.

Besides being good for relaxation, it is also helpful for quelling a variety of unpleasant physical symptoms. I have used it many times after waking in the middle of the night with insomnia or digestive problems (acid reflux). The exercise Collecting Qi to the Dantian is excellent for moving Qi from wherever it is causing a disturbance back to where it belongs (the Lower Dantian). It is amazing, but after about fifteen minutes of practise, any discomfort is resolved. Since practising Qigong, I don't feel as anxious or upset about physical disturbances any more, because I know that I have a tool that I can use to help myself.

Each of the exercises in the set has a specific purpose. Among these are exercises that gently stretch the body (improving flexibility), improve balance and posture, and stimulate the internal organs and acupuncture points. This helps enable Qi to flow unimpeded over time, helping to clear blockages and improve health. The exercises also release endorphins which leave one with a feeling of calm and well-being.

Golfer with tennis elbow and high blood pressure

1 have attended the Manchester classes for about 18 months now. The longer I spend there, the more I feel I ought to write down the benefits I have enjoyed from studying Qigong. After having by-pass surgery, Qigong has proven to be the most suitable exercise for me I have ever seen.

My regular check-ups, including my blood pressure, have shown that Qigong has really helped. I have a sense of growing confidence and well-being which I have not experienced before. Aches and pains which I took for granted have disappeared, although once in a while they reappear after a particularly hard workout for a short while.

I also play golf in my spare time and my ability to perform well at it has not decreased with age. I'm convinced that Qigong has made a big contribution here. 1 was surprised when over a period of time of about one month, my golfer's or tennis elbow disappeared completely during the time I was studying Healthy Living Gong. One of the instructors (Simon) explained that the movement Child Swinging was a treatment for tennis elbow and for repetitive strain injury. 1 have had no trouble from it ever since.

I am writing this letter partly because I hope it will give encouragement to anyone just beginning to study Qigong. As long as the student persists and practises, then he or she can enjoy its many therapeutic benefits. Finally, I would like to thank all the instructors and students at the Tse Qigong Centre for their help and friendliness.

Yours sincerely, DAVID FAWKES Student, Manchester

Knee and back injury recovery

I began studying Qigong just over a year ago. My close friend Derek had the honour of learning directly under Sigong (Grandteacher) Michael Tse while he was living in the Seattle area. Over time I began to notice some definite changes in my friend. He had always been in good physical shape, but I'd noticed that his fiery spirit had begun to noticeably calm down and that he seemed to be making a more deliberate effort to better himself as a person.

This was very interesting to me. Myself, I always had respect for Kung Fu and thought perhaps that one day when the time was right I would begin training. The years had taken a toll on my young body, though. I have been a landscaper for 10 years and previous to that I had played American football for six years and generally worked my body very hard with basketball and hiking and other athletic endeavours. I was also struggling with two health problems. The first was a badly hyper-extended knee.

I'd hurt it the previous winter going snowboarding for my first time. It now had a terrible habit of popping out of joint when I'd flex it too far, and it was healing very slowly. The other problem was a bit more serious. I've had back problems ever since I was 17 years old, and on occasion I would be completely laid out and unable to work for up to a week or so. After the worst bout with my back I'd ever had (where I was unable to work for three months while trying various suggestions to get it healthy again), I finally succumbed and went to a back specialist.

He looked at my X-rays and told me that the previous diagnoses had been wrong, and that I had degenerative disc disease at the age of 25. He said it was fairly common in America but that it had no cure. My case was apparently a minor one, but he went on to explain that it usually gets worse over time and sometimes quite quickly. The doctors had been telling me to rest my back before, but he told me that I needed to exercise regularly, and that I should avoid any high impact sports (such as basketball or difficult hikes). He also told me that I should consider a new line of work. That was all he 'knew' about it though.

I was sceptical, to say the least, at this so-called 'expert' telling me that I had an incurable disease that they knew little or nothing about, that I needed to change my entire lifestyle and accept that I probably would not have my previous health back ever again.

I wasn't ready to give up my athletics, so I determined it was time for a different approach. I had spoken with Derek a few times about his Qigong and I decided to go ahead and give it a try. Soon afterwards, I started my first class at the Seattle Tse Qigong Centre under Sifu Adah Masaoka. In the beginning, I was nervous. When I was younger I had sat in on a Karate class and a Tae Kwon Do class to see what they were like. I had been turned off by the competitive nature between the students and the 'drill-sergeant' styles of the instructors. They really distanced themselves from the students and seemed to almost look down on them as their inferiors.

I quickly found that this was not at all the case in this class. The students were all very calm and even-tempered. They were polite and friendly and more than willing to take the time to help me out with things. Sifu Adah Masaoka moved me along at a comfortable speed and treated me with respect. She taught without the arrogance that teachers sometimes fall prey to. She was humble before the skill and I couldn't help but to be humble before her example. I felt right at home and quickly decided to carry on with the Qigong to see for myself how it would affect me.

A few months later I had passed my test for Balancing Gong and started Healthy Living Gong. My knee had already shown a marked improvement in flexibility, although it would still pop out of joint if I stretched it too far. My back was still sore at times, but I hadn't had to miss any work since I had started the Qigong, and it seemed to be growing stronger, although I wasn't ready to test it out fully yet. Healthy Living Gong quickly proved to be a bit more challenging than Balancing Gong had been.

The movements were slightly more complex and required more subtle control and finesse. More balance and flexibility was required for most of the movements. Also, more strength was required. Each step seemed to prepare me for the next step though. Almost immediately my knees seemed to be growing stronger and stronger. Before too long, my back wasn't giving me any trouble at all unless I sat with bad posture for a long time or slept in a funny position.

I also began to grow much more aware of my body and started to realise how much tension I was carrying (especially in my lower back, shoulders and neck), even when I thought I was just relaxing. However, this also began to improve slowly. By the time I had started on more advanced Healthy Living Gong my knee was up to about 90 per cent. It had no more pain, and nearly the same mobility it had before the injury. It still would sometimes make a deep 'pop' if I flexed it all the way and held it that way for too long, but it wasn't affecting my lifestyle any more.

My Qigong seemed to have helped my basketball, as well, making me more aware of how my body moved and thereby giving me better control over it. The Qigong seeds are planted inside me now, and I have no doubt that they will one day grow into something special. With more diligent practise and a few other steps towards living healthier, I am sure that both the quality and the length of my life will only increase. That is a priceless gift and one that I am very thankful for. I am still but a novice and have yet to feel the full potential of these skills, but I've had a taste of them and I've learned to recognise the skill in those above me. If there is a ceiling to Qigong skill, it is high up in the clouds and far beyond the range of these eyes. Still, I am amazed that with as little as a month of dedicated practice, you can still get definite benefits. You can climb the Qigong tree as high as you want to go, but the view only keeps getting better with every step!

Kidney failure and coma

Right now I am sitting here writing this letter by a gorgeous lake in New York State. Two years ago, I never thought that I would be here again. As a matter of fact, I am lucky to be alive right now. Several years ago, I developed an illness that affected my kidneys. I first used conventional medicine but it did not offer any cure. So I then tried holistic medicine. I must have spent over $50,000 in the last few years trying to find the best healer in the world who could help me. I listened to anybody and everybody who said that they would cure me. Eventually, I wound up in worse shape than I began. I ended up in hospital, in a coma and on dialysis. I also went into kidney failure.

I never realised how weak a person's body could be. After three weeks, I awoke from the coma and the doctors discharged me from the hospital. I had to walk with a cane and could barely walk several feet without assistance. This was December of 2001. In March of 2002, Siffu Michael Tse came to my area in New York City. Although I was too weak to attend his seminar, I saw him for three Qigong healing treatments. I could not believe the difference in how I felt afterwards. It was a miracle and the best that I had felt in years.

Tse Sifu cautioned me that the energy that he transmitted to me was only a 'jump start' and that I had to keep on practising my exercises to maintain my level of health. So, he instructed me to do the Horse Stance meditation. He said to do as long as I could, even if only a minute or two and then gradually build up to 30 minutes, and to start doing some of the basic Qigong exercises that I had learned several years before.

Within several weeks of my treatments, Qigong practise and doing the Horse Stance, I was off dialysis and back to work as a police officer. The doctors were amazed at my progress.

I truly believe that Qigong has helped me tremendously. I also learned recently that Qigong is not to be done like most exercises, like lifting weights or doing aerobics where you perform repetitions quite robotically Adam Wallace, a Centre instructor here in New York, has taught me that the most important thing to do is to relax and to breathe naturally.

I once read that Sifu said that it is better to have one sharp knife than a drawer full of dull knives. I truly believe this. Before, I used too many approaches to maintain my health instead of sticking to just one that really helped me the most - the exercises which are part of the Kunlun Dayan Qigong system.
