What is Qigong Massage?

Qigong Massage is a Chi cultivation technique, a type of Qigong Movement exercise known as “Dao Yin.” It requires gentle tactile stroking, rubbing and tapping to move the Chi through the body’s meridian pathways.

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.
