Our breath is the way we can consciously influence our autonomic nervous system. You can change your heart rate, reduce stress hormones and increase immune response all with the power of intentional breathing.
You can also “hear” the health of the body through the persons breath. The rate, depth and clarity are all indications of health and strength of their inner Qi.
These indications and benefits are difficult to perceive and achieve without proper guidance, and correct guidance involves constant adjustments. We must follow the principles and methods to achieve the BEST results for the individual, as the masters before us had designed different techniques for different situations and levels of ability. Whilst there are many different types of Qi Gong, one size does not fit all. The best training is when a teacher understands what the student NEEDS, and has your best interests at heart to give you the right instruction to improve those needs. This instruction may be different to what you WANT, but who wants to settle for average, especially when it comes to your health. A doctor won’t do a telehealth appointment for serious condition, they insist on a face to face meeting so they can measure the person to give the best diagnosis and treatment. Qi Gong is the same, best results are accomplished by face to face training where all aspects of the person can be considered.
