Chi Exercises

vary in many ways of form and function but the one thing all chi energy exercises have in common is that they are designed to harness, enhance, energize and balance your chi; your body energy. The ancient cultures of China, Japan, and India have been developing and refining chi exercises for hundreds of years. Chi Kung, Tai Chi, Yoga, Makko ho (meridian stretching) are all forms of chi exercises (also known as qi and ki exercises).
Each of these forms of chi exercise have many variations and derivations branching off in every known direction. At times it becomes very difficult to decide which may be best for you. I have studied/practiced many and although I love Chi Kung, Aikido and Yoga, I find Makko ho very simple and straight forward to do (simple does not mean “easy”). Makko ho is a simple set of six meridian stretches that anyone can perform anywhere at any time. Each stretch opens up a brother and sister meridian pair and allows the chi energy to flow smoothly and evenly.

Body Energy – Unlock The Secrets Of The Chinese Energy Clock

One thing I discovered a few years back while reading a book on Chi Kung was that Traditional Chinese Medicine puts forth the idea of an energy clock in our bodies called the 24 hour cycle of chi.  The premise is that each major meridian (there are 12) receives the body’s chi energy for two hours during the day (this is when the meridian is at its peak) and then the chi will move on after two hours to the next meridian. Twelve hours later that same meridian will be at its lowest energy in the cycle giving each meridian a peak and valley of energy each day.

I wrote a new book – BODY ENERGY – Unlock The Secrets Of The Chinese Energy Clock available at Amazon.com, click above to find out more info.
