Heal your liver and release the anger.

The "Healing Sounds" practice is one of the most well-known of the thousands of forms of Taoist Qigong. We use this Qigong practice to transform "stuck" emotional energy into nourishment for the "virtues" of the five organ-system described by Chinese Medicine.
