Same video lessons as the DVD for much less! Heal yourself withacupressure, or qigong massage, with 70 minutes of video lessons byDr. Yang. This app is available for free download with samplevideos, and offers a single in-app purchase to access these massagelessons for the lowest possible cost. Stream or download each videolesson. Qigong Massage is an excellent method of quick pain relief.This video is a comprehensive introduction to the art of massageand to the acupressure points (or acupoints), channels, andmeridians in the human body. It presents the fundamental techniquesand theories of Qigong massage that you can use to enhance yourskills and deepen your knowledge and application of Qi (energy)healing. You will find the instruction practical and useful forrecovering from fatigue, aches, pains, tension, and stress. Theflow of qi can be disturbed either through external trauma, such asan injury, or internal trauma such as depression or stress, or evenjust a sedentary lifestyle. When the body is energetically out ofbalance, this is when symptoms like aches and pain start to occurand we start to experience a state of "disease". Wherever you feelpain or tightness, your energetic circulation is stagnant, or evenblocked. Stagnation is the root of injury or illness. Qigongmassage is used to assess the distribution of qi throughout thebody and to try to correct any imbalances accordingly. Dr. Yang,Jwing-Ming demonstrates 70 minutes of whole body self-massagetechniques. During his thirteen years of martial arts and massagetraining under Master Cheng, Gin Gsao in Taipei, Taiwan, Dr. Yangstudied Tui Na and Dian Xue massage techniques, and herbaltreatments. His experience with ‘real life martial art injuries’and personal use of Qigong massage treatments, along with hisscientific background, makes him uniquely qualified to present thisprofound qigong massage training program. The practice of qigongmassage is one of the oldest methods of healing, built upon fivethousand years of study and a highly refined, solid theoreticalfoundation. Used to improve health, slow down aging, and preventand treat many types of illnesses, Qigong massage is a vast healingscience, and it is the root of many other popular forms of massagetherapy. Qi-gong translates from Chinese to Energy-Work. QigongMassage is also known as acupressure, and is the root of thepopular Japanese art of Shiatsu massage. It is similar toacupuncture in its usage of the meridians (energy channels) andacupressure points (tsubo in Japanese), but without the use ofneedles. Shiatsu is a Japanese word made up of two writtencharacters meaning finger (shi) and pressure (atsu). We can sayShiatsu is a variant of accupressure, as it involves thestimulation of the acupoints with pressure. In Qigong massage, thepressure is sometimes applied over a wider area, not just over theacupoints; sometimes, the pressure is applied precisely over theacupoints. Qigong massage creates flexibility and balance in thebody, both physically and energetically, by improving the flow ofenergy that circulates through our bodies in the meridians. We allhave a "life force", Qi (energy) within all our trillions of cells,allowing them to function. Qi also regulates physical, emotional,mental and spiritual stability. Qi (ki in Japanese) maintains ahomeostatic balance in your body. Thank you for downloading ourapp! We are striving to make the best possible video appsavailable.

If you are ina position that requires self-defense you are justified in andlikely need a higher level of force. However, if your job requirescontrolling violent people with minimal injury you must be good atjoint locks and you must be able to improvise them under pressure.Rory Miller is a writer and teacher living peacefully in thePacific Northwest, USA.

Today, most people practice taiji slowly to develop theirbalance, strength, and vitality, and the martial applications ofthe art are often ignored. Also spelled Taijiquan, 'Grand UltimateFist' is a highly effective form of combat specializing in shortand middle-range fighting. In China, t'ai chi ch'uan is categorizedunder the Wudang grouping of Chinese martial arts, which areapplied with internal power (jing), using Qi (energy). The historyof the basic postures in the Yang form can be traced back throughWudang mountain to Shaolin Temple, developed from a series ofmovements originating from "Chang Quan" (Long Fist, a reference tothe winding Long River, another name for the Yangtze). Around 800AD, a philosopher named Xu, Xuan-Ping is credited for developing along Kung Fu of 37 forms, which included these common Tai Chimovements: • Play the Guitar • Single Whip • Step Up to Seven Stars• Jade Lady Works the Shuttles • High Pat on Horse • Phoenix FlapsIts Wings "Taiji Chang Quan" existed in many variations, andeventually evolved into Taijiquan. Other forms of the same era suchas "Heavenly-Inborn Style", "Nine Small Heavens", and "AcquiredKung Fu" also show similarities to what later became Taijiquan. Theprinciples of softness, sticking, adhering, and using theopponent's own momentum against himself were established in theseprecursory martial styles. Bodhidharma's teaching at the BuddhistShaolin Temple around 550AD, which detailed the theory of using themind to lead the Qi to energize the physical body, is widelyconsidered the origin of all Internal Martial Arts, including TaiChi. Grandmaster Liang's martial arts ancestry originated fivegenerations ago. He started his traditional Emei kungfu and Qigongtraining with his grandfather in 1948. Grandmaster Liang thensought out other renowned masters and other styles from Shaolin andWudang. In the early sixties, Grandmaster Liang began his study andresearch in the few major styles of Taiji such as Yang, Chen, Sun,and Wu style, Buddhist Esoteric Qigong, and Taoist Qigong.Grandmaster Liang has many times been a gold medalist in Wushu andTaiji competitions held in Sichuan province.

When thebody is energetically out of balance, this is when symptoms likeaches and pain start to occur and we start to experience a state of"disease". Wherever you feel pain or tightness, your energeticcirculation is stagnant, or even blocked. Stagnation is the root ofinjury or illness. Qigong massage is used to assess thedistribution of qi throughout the body and to try to correct anyimbalances accordingly. Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming demonstrates 120minutes of two-person whole body massage techniques. During histhirteen years of martial arts and massage training under MasterCheng, Gin Gsao in Taipei, Taiwan, Dr. Yang studied Tui Na and DianXue massage techniques, and herbal treatments. His experience with‘real life martial art injuries’ and personal use of Qigong massagetreatments, along with his scientific background, makes himuniquely qualified to present this profound qigong massage trainingprogram. The practice of qigong massage is one of the oldestmethods of healing, built upon five thousand years of study and ahighly refined, solid theoretical foundation. Used to improvehealth, slow down aging, and prevent and treat many types ofillnesses, Qigong massage is a vast healing science, and it is theroot of many other popular forms of massage therapy. Qi-gongtranslates from Chinese to Energy-Work. Qigong Massage is alsoknown as acupressure, and is the root of the popular Japanese artof Shiatsu massage. It is similar to acupuncture in its usage ofthe meridians (energy channels) and acupressure points (tsubo inJapanese), but without the use of needles. Shiatsu is a Japaneseword made up of two written characters meaning finger (shi) andpressure (atsu). We can say Shiatsu is a variant of accupressure,as it involves the stimulation of the acupoints with pressure. InQigong massage, the pressure is sometimes applied over a widerarea, not just over the acupoints; sometimes, the pressure isapplied precisely over the acupoints. Qigong massage createsflexibility and balance in the body, both physically andenergetically, by improving the flow of energy that circulatesthrough our bodies in the meridians.

YMAA
• Stream or download qigong video lessons by Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming.• Free download with samples. In-app purchase to access all videos.• Easy-to-follow whole-body acupressure massage lesson. Dr. Yang,Jwing-Ming will teach you basic acupressure for the entire bodybased on his training of traditional techniques of Tui Na and DianXue massage. Acupressure, similar to acupuncture, is based on theconcept of Qi (life energy) which flows through meridians in thebody. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupressurepoints, or acupoints, with the aim of clearing blockages in thesemeridians. By relieving areas of tension and stagnation, the Qi canflow smoothly, resolving the problem at its root. Pressure may beapplied by hand, by elbow, or with various devices. Some medicalstudies have shown that acupressure may be effective at helpingmanage nausea and vomiting, for helping with pain relief,headaches, stomach ache, and many other common ailments. Withregular practice you will notice that your entire body feels morerelaxed and comfortable, your reaction to stress will be calmer,and your circulation will be increased. Areas where tension orstagnation develop in the body are the location where an injury orillness will eventually manifest. These areas can be treated withacupressure and moving qigong exercises to resolve the underlyingproblem for complete healing. The Chinese discovered thousands ofyears ago that pressing certain points on the body relieved painwhere it occurred. This sometimes also benefited other parts of thebody more remote from the pain and the pressure point. Gradually,they found other locations that not only alleviated pain but alsoinfluenced the functioning of certain internal organs. After yearsof meticulous observation and record-keeping, ancient Chinesephysicians developed ways of curing certain illnesses by strikingor piercing specific points on the surface of the body. You canlearn how to complement the care you receive from your doctors andhelp your body relieve itself of common ailments by pressing theproper spots, as taught in this video lesson.
