Qigong Dai originated from the South Shaolin temple during the late Ming and early Qin dynasty’s. In the ancient texts Qigong Dai was described as a special breathing method that was known as ‘Nourishing Qigong’ and was treasured for its ability to restore vitality, strengthen the body and cure illness.
After it was revealed and later taught to the public by Grand Master Dai in 1984, Qigong Dai was researched by independent scientists in China using western medical methodology for two years. Results of this research showed that there were great health benefits gained through the practise of Qigong Dai. They found health improvements were especially significant for digestive system disorders, cardiovascular conditions, kidney function disorders and liver function.
Qigong Dai is suitable for all people to practise, but is also specialized for Martial artists and holistic health care practitioners. It is highly regarded for its ability to compress, increase, and strengthen vital energy, which is a pre-requisite for more advanced levels of training and practise.
This is one of the most famous traditional Qigong techniques in China and the most important foundation technique of the Taoist Qigong system. It has over a thousand years of history. In ancient time this technique was mainly kept by masters for their own development and the gaining of a strong internal foundation, as well as for well-being and longevity. Now it is also practiced for self-healing on both physical and emotional levels, relaxation, stress management and the prevention of diseases.
This is passive Qigong (meditation) which circulates the inner circle of vital energy. It is suitable for most people to learn for a variety of purposes or conditions. During the course students learn special techniques of breathing, using the mind, and also how to reach a level where energy passes through the Ren and Du meridians, not just as visualisation.
There are six steps, and with each step students will progressively benefit in: heart, respiratory, digestive systems, sexual problems, energy level, immune system and the endocrine system. With daily practice students can usually open up the Ren and Du meridians in 100 days.
