Treat Your Body like Taking Care of Your Car
By Master Teresa Yeung
How Often Do Cars Need Service?
You would have heard of this, " Perform simple services like oil changes to your car can result in serious and costly damage if they are not undertaken at the right time."
Your body is like a car and requires regular maintenance. It will save you a lot of money by maintaining the health of the body well physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Chi is like the electrical energy and fuel that runs the engine. A car needs to be maintained through regular servicing to prevent major breakdowns, lengthen its lifespan and optimize the machinery. By the same token, the practice of Chinese Chi Gong is like the regular maintenance of your body and its cells. Taking care of your body is needed just like how the regular upkeep to repair your car from daily use is necessary. The practice of Chinese Chi Gong balances the physical and emotional systems, in addition to being a great medium for spiritual growth.
The Practice of Qi Gong /Chi Gong Raises DHEA Levels
DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) is an anti-aging hormone found in the adrenal glands. It is the most abundant steroid in the body and has many beneficial effects including improving immunity. According to our search study by Dr. Eisen in 2011, DHEA levels can be raised by exercise and practicing Chi Gong and meditation to reduce stress. DHEA serves as a precursor to male and female sex hormones, specifically, androgens and estrogens.DHEA levels in the body begin to decrease after age 30. DHEA boosts antibody production; enhances the activity of monocytes, activates natural killer cells, and maximizes the function of T-lymphocytes (Eisen, 2011). In aging laboratory animals, DHEA restores youthful levels of cytokines and reduces the production of auto-antibodies. You will prevent the formation of wrinkles from practicing Chi Gong.

Practice Chi Gong is Most Economical
Chi Gong (also referred as “Qi Gong” in Mandarin) is an art of self-healing energy work from China that dates back 5,000 years. The exquisite forms cultivate Chi energy through exercises that involve breathing, visualization and gentle movements.
Chi Gong is like a moving meditation with different forms to connect the body, mind, and spirit. Chi Gong is also being referred to as “acupuncture without needles.” It requires only 5% of your physical effort to learn Chi Gong in comparison to that of Tai Chi and it lengthens our life.
As Chi Gong does not demand much of your physical energy, it is very energizing and makes it easy to replenish our loss of life force energy. Practicing Chi Gong is very suitable for all ages and fitness abilities. Individuals who are sick or diagnosed with terminal illnesses can practice Chi Gong for improving energy and promoting self-healing.Since the body has a natural intelligence and an ability to heal, when Chi Gong is practiced, the body will flow the Chi to wherever there needs healing. Chi Gong is very simple and easy to practice and is often practiced once to several times a day for 10-15 minutes.The results can be very satisfying. It is very economical as the knowledge of the movements stay with you after you have registered to learn the movements and you can practice for a lifetime.
“Medical Chi Gong” refers to the Chi Gong forms used by TCM (traditional Chinese medicines) practitioners. With an emphasis on how to use vital energy (Chi) to take control of illnesses or get rid of diseases, there is a focus on prevention and increasing immunity as well. Although Chi Gong is mainly considered to be a self-training discipline, Chi emission from a Master (or external Chi Gong) has always been part of the medical chi gong practice to help others to regain health. Therefore, there are differences between internal Chi Gong training and external Chi Gong therapy in the history and development of Medical Chi Gong.
