This qigong set is used to “pulse” or open and close all the joints in the body. It helps to lessen the effects of repetitive stress injury, carpal tunnel, and OA. “Pulsing” can be used to help heal damaged body joints like knees, hands, elbows, shoulders and neck.

Qigong can also help relieve stress; calm the nerves; and smooth and release physical, mental and emotional blockages in the body. This style of Qigong consists of two movements done standing in place. It is easy to learn for people of any age or body type. This sequence builds on the vertical Circling Hands qigong, however Circling Hands is not a requirement to take Marriage of Earth and Heaven.
