SUMMER QIGONG TO PURGE

The element of the heart is Fire, but too much Fire or Heat disturbs the heart. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, when heat collects in one area of the body this is called “fire poison", otherwise known as inflammation. Summer, being the hottest time of the year, is prone to it's own two unique imbalances called Summer Heat and Summer damp.  This can manifest in the form of physical heat and emotional heat. The Summer Purge routine focuses on exercises that clear heat, calm emotional heat and move the qi in the blood. The routine ends with gentle progressive loops that balance yin and yang energy in the body, creating a harmonious and balanced state of joy and calmness within.

Nearly everyone can benefit from purging exercises. Those who should not do purging qigong are those who are seriously ill and have weak or deficient qi. When the qi is weak, the body is focused on healing so it's not a time to detox, its a time to tonify.
