(A) The 17 Motions Of The Health Sport

The reason why the exercise is called ‘Bio-Energy Medical Chi-kung’ is because human body is a biological organism with electricity. Every cell and every muscular tissue has electrical activities, therefore, different medical instruments such as electroencephalogram, electrocardiogram and electromyogram ,etc.

are applied to treatments.The magnetic waves transmitted by the earth day and night interact with the iron in the red corpuscle of the human body. The drastic motion produced by their mutual response and attraction forms the normal circulatory system of blood in the body.

The universe has an infinite ‘ecological energy field’. Life itself is an electromagnetic embryo field, too. They fluctuate and radiate energy ceaselessly with certain frequency respectively. Everything in the nature is formed by this magnetic energy field. We must train ourselves to gather the high-energy electronic potential in the universe and then transform it into ' the biological photon ' energy from which the photoelectric effect takes place. Again, it connects magnetoelectricity with every organism or material in the external environment and radiates with energy flow each other. The balance of biological energy is finished by this radiation. It is well understood that all lives, such as the internal organs, trunk, four limbs, etc. in the human body, are governed by the nerves, and the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves in the nervous system have both confronting and balancing functions each other in the functional movements of the body, which keep your body balanced, unified, steady, and healthy. The ‘Bio-Energy Medical Chi-Kung’ bases its training on this principle and uses the theory of “negative and positive balance which everything maintains “ to enhance physical and mental health and to prevent diseases as its objective.

The characteristics of the motions in the exercise
The exercise is both dynamic and static. When the exercise is practiced, dynamic motions follow static ones. It has the basic motions of training in cultivation such as “To Inhale O2 by Exhaling Co2 through Your Mouth”. and “To gather Energy in the Pubic region through the Nose” etc,. It can make the diaphragm, praised as the second heart of the body, more flexible and increase the lung capacity, which benefits the function of the heart and the lungs greatly; it can enhance the electronic potential of nerve cells to charge, adjust, reassemble, or eliminate the electron of the abnormal cells and make them return to normal, because only in normal state they can keep the electronic balance with other normal cells to reach the effects of preventing diseases and strengthening the body. It still can enhance the oxygen amount of brain and increase its blood flow to prevent the old man from suffering from dementia, to keep their mental power, intelligence, memory, judgment, and comprehension from abating and to get rid of such obstacles as endocrine, blood vessels and nervous system caused by brain pathological changes and some happenings in spiritual activity fields.

About the dynamic exercise, we create a series of motions which are suitable for all ages, are easy to learn, gather energy quickly and produce fast effects. If ‘the young man’ practices the exercise, his physique will be stronger; his muscle will be well developed; his body will be well shaped in form; his skin will be smoother, tougher, and more tensile and his sebaceous glands will be vigorously secreted. All of these help the development of his skeletons and physique. If ‘the elderly’ practices the exercise, his senility will be delayed and his immunity will be enhanced to prevent him from suffering the disease. It has the function of preventing the disease, strengthening the body, improving the physique, relieving you from being weak, promoting longevity and keeping you from growing old quickly. It is rightly called that you should make an effort to keep good health in your youth and you will not be sad for your poor health when you grow old. It is never too early to keep good health. If you expect to prolong your life, you should always spend your time taking care of your body.

This exercise is divided into two parts, namely, 17 dynamic motions and 15 finishing movements. There are the methods of rubbing internal organs by your own efforts, the methods of prolonging longevity by accumulating energy and the methods of guiding mechanics by dynamics. It is a training method in which spirit, ideas, energy, and strength are included. It can make a practitioner concentrate his spirit and his ideas. The practitioner can exercise his internal organs to make blood and energy flow without obstruction, and exercise his external flesh, bones, sinews and marrow to make the limbs, muscles and joints flexible and enhance the tension and extension of muscles and tendon, which can prevent the stiffness and degradation of the bones and sinews. Therefore, it is a set of good exercises in “ keeping good health, strengthening the body and prolonging the life”.

The order of the exercise is characterized by its continuity, systematization, and the mutually-linked motions. All of the motions form a connected group of best health care.

Dynamic balance: the exercise has both dynamic and static characteristic. Its training takes both inward and outward parts of the body into equal consideration. Its practice tempers toughness with gentleness. Real force and unreal force are properly arranged. Energy and strength help each other. Its functions complement each other and have multi-ductility.

It is safe for people of all ages and both sexes to practice the exercise. It is convenient and easy to learn it, too. If you are sick, it is helpful in improving your illness. If you are healthy, it benefits your health. After a long period of training, you can accumulate your energy and essence and release it to guide energy for others as you please, which is helpful in regaining their health.

Practicing the 17 motions can enhance the effect of muscular thermosense
“The 17 motions of the health sport” of bio-energy medical Chi Kung is a series of movements of systemically muscular groups, which can generate the effect of thermosense to achieve the effect of bodily natural self-treatment.

The exercise includes ten movements such as lifting, swinging, moving like a pupa, moving hands as if to swim the breast stroke, flinging, expanding, turning, pushing and rotating. The movements of the especially muscular groups have their own different functions, which produce the lifting and propelling motive force to lift and stretch muscles upwards constantly by means of the reversal movements of anti-gravitation to activate skeletons and joints to resist the gravitation. Because the anti-gravitation of the muscles depends on their tense and extensive functions. meanwhile, it also has the effect of resisting aging and preventing diseases constantly to keep you in good health.

To those who can persist in spending certain time practicing the exercise every day, they must be able to keep him in a certain body temperature, enhance the electric potential of his nerves and muscles, increase the muscular tension and endurance, prevent myasthenia and osteoporosis, purify the blood, expand the capillaries, adjust the metabolism, enhance the function of the immune system, then improve the overall functional condition of human body, and finally reach the stage of human health index.

If we can enhance the bodily thermosense, the blood flow of microcirculation and metabolism, and the naturally rehabilitative ability of the body by practicing the exercise of the Chi Kung sport, it must have the function to improve various kind of chronic diseases. Especially, the symptoms of the cold sensation from insufficient heat energy or hypothermia will disappear after practicing the exercise in muscular groups for a period of time, and immediately enhance the thermal energy to generate the effect of the thermal feeling, which will reduce the risk of suffering from diseases and achieve the purpose of preventing or resisting them, and then improve the physique to create the vigor of life.
