Can Qigong Strengthen the Kidneys or other Organs

The Kidneys are related to our longevity and our life force (Jing). Emei Qigong is based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) philosophy of the 5 elements.
Each Element is associated with a season, and a Yin and Yang Organ.
Emei Qigong offers specific micro training techniques, healing sounds, and Qigong breathing exercises to balance and
fortify each of the associated organs. For example, there are several techniques that are available for the Kidneys.
The Kidneys are associated with the Water Element and the season of winter. The Water Element is also the most Yin of all the Elements.

To strengthen and balance our Kidney Qi, we use a specific Healing Sound Hei (pronounced Hay) along with specific breathing techniques and movements to create energetic support for that organ.

Emei Qigong has very powerful breathing techniques that focus on breathing in harmony with nature. Emei Qigong
natural breathing method combines opening your chest while breathing into your Lower Dantian (belly).
Qigong breathing helps center the awareness of your body, rather than in your head. By doing these techniques you
will feel more physically and energetically grounded.

 

When is the Best Time to practice Qigong?

Qigong can be practiced anytime however different times of the day may produce slightly different results. As an example, morning qigong, the time of Yang, it may feel more energetic than practicing in the early evening, the time of Yin.
 One of the strongest times to practice Qigong is either 12 noon or 12 midnight.
During the 24-hour cycle, there is continually changing process and a constant transference of energy between Yin and Yang.
Midnight is the time of Maximum Yin and Minimum Yang.
High noon is the time of Maximum Yang and
Minimum Yin.

Although they seem to exist on their own, Yin and Yang cannot exist without each other.
