Combining ancient Taoist healing techniques with more modern Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Healing Sounds Qigong set of six movements and accompanying sounds give comprehensive benefits for your internal organs, external viscera and the opening of energy channels throughout the body. The sounds produced take away excess heat from the internal organs improving and regulating their functions while the movements stimulate the related acupoints and meridians.

Originally the Six Healing Sounds Qigong (over 5000 years old in origin and originating in China), was only practiced using the sounds on their own to promote healing and healthy functioning of the bodies’ major internal organs, while other Qigong schools used only movements to massage the organs and stimulate acupoints. The form we use (Liu Zi Jue) combines both movements and sounds, stimulating the body as well as acupoints associated with the major organs, taking the best of both worlds and combining them.
The key to practising the healing sounds is simplicity; just performing the movements with a relaxed body and pronouncing each sound correctly will give your body and mind immediate as well as long term benefits.
The major internal organs covered are the Liver, Heart, Spleen, Lungs, Kidneys, the energy channel of the Sanjiao and their associated organs, the Gall Bladder, Small intestines, Stomach, Pancreas, Colon, Bladder, Pericardium.
Hints for practice
- Practicing sounds and movements separately is a great way to hone both skills and helps them flow more naturally when done together
- Once you are familiar with the sounds and movements you can begin to incorporate them together with the breath, linking the separate parts. By combining and keeping your focus on integrating the Sounds, Movements and Breath together you create a powerful meditative practice which will enhance your whole being
- Refining the form. Keep your practice fresh by always trying to progress in this form. A good way to do this is to; do whole form once and then, decide which part(s) you want to go over, do the movement on its own a couple of times before adding the sound
