This manual manipulation of Chi eliminates stagnation and blocks and restores strength, harmony and circulation. Most Qigong massage exercises are very easy to learn and just 10-15 minutes daily offers many of the same benefits that other Qigong exercise and self-practices provide.
Because touch is used, there are a few caveats: Don’t tap on the scalps of young children
and pets, as their skulls are still quite soft - there is a risk of bruising brain tissue. Gentle
rubbing and stroking is usually safe and permitted. If your doctor has told you to refrain from massages because you easily bruise and/or are on blood thinning medications to reduce blood clot formations, you should not do any Qigong Massage-Dao Yin. If you are severely deficient in Chi volume, you shouldn’t do Qigong Massage until you have built up a reservoir of Chi. But Qigong massage should be good for pets or people of any age.
