Master Shin Ki (Qi) therapy session

I had my first Ki (Qi) therapy session from Master Shin today. I liked it a lot. It’s a first time that I felt something substantial right away.
The session lasted for over an hour. Master Shin and his wife were both present. They are both extremely nice and it was a pleasure to meet them. Master Shin asked me to explain why I came to see him. He listened very attentively and told me about his work. He told me his wife was told she had cancer and only 6 month to live. It was a long time ago. She didn't go conventional route and used chemotherapy and now she is totally fine. OK, now back to the session. He practices in a small room in a Karate Studio. I was asked to take my shoes off before I entered the studio. After I explained my problems, he asked me to sit on the massage table so he can examine my spine. He pressed few points where I experienced a lot of pain. He told me that he can see some channels are blocked and need to be unblocked. I, then, laid down on the table face down. He massaged a lot of points along the spine first. Some of them were extremely sore and he told me that that’s the area related to my digestive system. I have to say that the point massage was very painful at times, but well worth it. After certain points, Master Shin just put his hands and transmitted Chi energy. It took an hour and he went thru the whole body. He massaged all the channels and points from head to toes. After he was done, he asked me to sleep on my back from now. I felt extremely relaxed after he was done. I walked to my workplace and during the walk, I felt light like a heavy weight was lifted.

I still feel amazing and I will report further progress.

Update:    I felt an improvement after my 1st visit for a while, however the stomach issues came back. After the 2nd visit, the condition didn't change and he is very expensive. I was going to try him again because if nothing else it was a good massage, but I got some sharp back pain right after the second visit. When I contacted him to ask if I should put ice on it, he was very dismissive and never emailed me to see if it got better.

Qigong for Strengthening the Kidneys

In Chinese Medicine, as in reality, there is no way to separate the mind and the body.

The most pronounced emotion related to Kidney Deficiency is fear. This type of imbalance would be marked with unfounded fear and anxiety during everyday life rather than fear relating to true danger. 

Unchecked, it can manifest as infertility, sexual dysfunction, menopause, prostate problems, impaired immunity, chronic inflammation, high blood pressure, heart irregularities and anxiety.

Adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and produce adrenaline that participates in the body’s fight/flight/freeze response and cortisol that stimulates stress. Long-term adrenaline and cortisol over production, partly brought on by chronic fear, can lead to adrenal burnout and chronic fatigue.

The kidney meridian starts at the underside center of the foot. It moves to the inside of the foot and circles the ankle. Then it moves up the inside of each leg, through the groin, and up the center of the torso about an inch fr…

Bliss Meditation

If you are familiar with Kundalini, you will no doubt be familiar with the use of the Serpent to describe this energy and power. 

Kundalini is often equated to a coiled serpent lying asleep at the base of spine, which, then with the practice of Kundalini Yoga, is awakened and made to rise up to the crown of the head.

In addition to this analogy, increased encounters with serpents are also often reported by those in the midst of a Kundalini Awakening.
 These encounters don't necessarily have to be with the real live snakes. These reports generally indicate that there is just a greater presence of snakes in their lives all of sudden, in the form of pictures, dreams, conversations, TV shows, books, etc.
There are also the more incredible stories regarding snakes, especially cobras, and those with awakened Kundalini. An example of this is the cobra that would often visit U.G. Krishnamurti at night at his house.  This cobra would hiss and bang at the door and in general make a lot of rucku…

Zhan Zhuang - Foundation of Internal Martial Arts

I found another good article on my favorite topic.

Zhan Zhuang - foundation of Internal Martial Artsby Karel Koskuba

Most Internal Martial Arts use some form of standing practice as foundation training (and Taijiquan is no exception in this regard). 

These standing exercises are usually called Zhan Zhuang(pole standing); sometimes they are called 'Standing Qigong'.

The standing exercises are supposed torelax and help you'accumulate Qi'. In this article I shall try to outline my theory that should explain, from western perspective, why these exercises are so important both for Internal Martial Arts and Qigong, how this western view correlates with the traditional Qiview and give training advice on how to practice them. In writing this article I have drawn upon my experience from Taijiquan, Yiquan and information from medical postural rehabilitation research and sports science.
