He also taught me how to drive away the wet, sick, and cold energy from the patient's body system.He passed his life-force from his finger to my crown and my forehead and asked me to...

The Energy Circulation

When I practise Chi Kung, heat accumulates in the tip of my spine (coccyx) and then rise up the spine like the mercury rising up in a thermometer, going up the waist, the back, the neck, the top of my head, and then down to the root of my nose, and then back to the Darn-Tin. Thereafter, the heat circulates in the route like an unbroken thread. Nowadays, it only takes three mi-mtes of practice to permeate my whole body with heat. It took me six months of practice before I started to have heat...
