  • Foot slapping - a qi gong technique for vigor and good health

    this is an interesting one I picked up at curezone which I will try out over the next week or so. You heard of boot scooting? Well now we have foot slapping. Grins. Sound weird?

    here's an explanation as to why this works.

    foot slapping



    - "Foot Slapping" to Invigorate the Kidneys and Nourish the Eyes and Liver"
    Chi Kung Master Huang Runtian, writing in "Treasured Qigong of Traditional Medical School," states that this "Foot Tapping Technique" ... "can nourish the liver and improve eyesight; curing chronic diseases of the liver, gall bladder and eyesight diseases (near-sighted, far-sighted. and poor-sighted).""As a result of conscientious practicing of the Qigong exercise, the liver wood nourished by sufficient kidney-water and abundant "earth Qi" would be full of vigor and vitality. Thus the Qigong can nourish the liver and make eyes clear." "Frequency and duration of exercise." Slap or clap your feet 50-104 times. For health protection perform once a day before going to bed."

    Positive Benefits of Foot Slapping

    -
    Here are some ailments Chinese Medicine attributes to being helped by foot tapping or slapping: Yin (cold) deficiency, yang (hot) excess, upper body heat excess, lower body deficiency (ungroundedness), kidney and heart problems, excessive rise of liver yang, seminal emissions, night sweats, heart palpitations, poor memory, insomnia, mental stress, neurasthenia, migraine headaches, knee and back pain, blood deficiency, burning red face, mental depression, poor eyesight, liver and gall bladder problems etc.

    -

    - "In practicing this {Do-In~," states Master Runtian, "you need not believe in it, but you must do the exercise earnestly. You will get bene8ts from it, whether you believe it or not."

    My Personal Experience of Foot Slapping

    -
    While visiting Zen-Taoist Master Hyunoong Sunim, in Washington State several years ago. I was awakened early one morning by a loud clapping. I found out later that he was slapping his foot. I tested his eyesight a few years later, and found that he has better than 20-20 vision--his eyesight is 40-10-much better than 20-20. He can see and read the 10 foot Snellen Eye Chart at 40 feet away without glasses or contacts!

    - An amazing feat for someone in his 40s. We have been performing this foot slapping technique for several months, and our health and energy is the highest its ever been.

    - Practice this technique daily, and see for yourself the positive benefits you will see and feel. Good luck and happy foot tapping! I have found this exercise to be one of the best Do-In techniques for improving one's health and eyesight. I perform foot slapping 75 times in the morning and before bed. If you have more energy, you can "slap" your feet 200 or 300 times. The goal of this "foot slapping" technique is to open-up the energy points on the foot kidney point and the energy acupoint on the palm. Once they are opened, slapping 50 times before bed is su8icient. Do not overdo it to exhaustion. Just relax and slap at an even slow tempo, about one second for each slap.

    Overcoming Depression and the Sentimental Diseases with Foot Slapping

    -
    There is a Chi Kung technique in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that is given to help those who suffer from an excess of the seven human emotions--joy, anger, anxiety, worry, grief, apprehension and fear. These emotions, in excess, are the cause of much depression and sentimental diseases. We have an epidemic of mental illnesses, depression and sentimental diseases in the world today. These illnesses effect ones' health and vision directly. What are sentimental diseases? Sentimental diseases are caused by the misuse or abuse of the emotions. For the most part, these emotional illnesses are based on negative mechanical emotions. For example, we have all heard of people who have died of an excess of grief. Ones' hair can turn white almost overnight from an excess of fear or stress. Losing a job or a break-up of a relationship has caused people to stay depressed for years--also causing headaches, bulimia, anorexia and crying spells. One can worry themselves sick. Diarrhea or a loose bladder can be caused by fright People have had heart attacks after "winning" at the race track. Anxiety and fear has kept many people from success, with its paralyzing effect Excess anger can cause strokes and weaken vision. These are just some of the many examples of "sentimental diseases."

    How to Perform the "Foot Slapping Do-In Technique" to Strengthen the Kidneys and Adjust the Chi


    The regular practice of this Foot Slapping Do-In Technique has shown in Traditional Chinese Medicine to renew physical and mental health and help one to attain superb health, good vision, and long life.

    Foot Slapping: Part One

    Step One: Sit on a chair, close eyes, relax body
    Step Two: Breathe naturally. Rid the mind of distractions. Be silent for a few minutes

    Foot Slapping: Part Two

    Step One: Open eyes. Place right foot on left knee (reverse this position for females)
    Step Two: With open palm, slap the arch of the right (left for female) foot with, the palm of the left (right for females) hand. In the palm is located the "Laogong Point" acupoint. The acupoint on the foot is called the Yongquan Point. The hand acupoint (Laogong) is slapped on the bottom of the foot--Yongquan Acupoint.
    Step Three: While tapping (slapping or clapping, hit with an even force and a relaxed tempo)--with cupped palm--not too hard. Do not slap your foot with a stiff or rigid hand. Keep your wrist area loose and relaxed while slapping your foot. Then do the same with the opposite foot.
    Step Four: Meditate or be silent for a few minutes.
    Step Five: Frequency: Slap or clap your foot at least 50 times in the morning and 50 times at night. Work up to 100 times.

    Point of Attention

    If you are a beginner at foot clapping, go easy--do not cause pain or redness. Just slap your foot gently for the first 2 weeks. Take it easy and relax. Once the foot acupoint is opened, the sting or redness will no longer be there. After the point is opened, perform the foot clapping only 50 times before bed. If one has low-blood pressure or hypoglycemia, place one hand on the top of the head, while the other hand taps the foot. Do not practice the tapping if you suffer from a serious health condition or are extremely weak (cancer. heart conditions). For the seriously ill just rub the foot and finish by rubbing the belly a few minutes.

    Tapping the Feet Balances Water and Fire in the Body
    Chinese Medicine teaches that water naturally moves downward and fire moves upward. For good health, the body requires that water move upward and fire move downward. The head must remain cool, while the hands and feet remain warm. When one is ill, the head is hot with fire, and the hands and feet are cool, cold or clammy (moist). Tapping or slapping the bottom of the feet brings the fire down and helps the water to go up. Good health requires that we maintain su8icient Kidney Chi or strong well-functioning kidneys. When the Kidney Yongquan Point is opened you will be able to draw the energy of the earth into your body (earth magnetism). Slapping the Yongquan Point can also help those who have performed chi kung incorrectly or who have had a bad kundalini experience (chi energy not flowing smoothly throughout the body)--constant nausea, headaches, dizziness, hot head, cold hands, ear ringing etc. Foot slapping harmonizes the heart and kidneys. When the kidneys become healthy and vigorous. they nourish the liver, which also improves its function, and enhances the eyesight--near and far. Start practicing this Foot Slapping Technique today and feel your health and energy zoom!

        "tapotement" in massage therapy... this can actually be done ot the entire body for theraputic effect. Soemthing about the clapping noise or sound seems to dissipate stagnant energy as well...

          true, haven't heard of that one. Probably unrelated as this one is based in the chinese culture which is always aligned to the meridians and opening up

            Well meridians carry life force energy 'chi'. Any massage is going to come into contact with meridians and chi even if the therapist is not skilled in eastern theory and techniques

              for sure, but being aware of this is an important aspect of massage as a massage practitioner can often take on the energy and chi of their patients.

              there is such a thing as pathogenic chi / qi and this can be transfered to a practitioner which is probably why many massager's / chiropractors end up with problems themselves. It's important to take responsibility for your own health and self massage / qi gong is one way of doing this.

                      i'm still sloot fapping i mean floot sapping i mean soot flapping i mean foot slapping, believe it or not. once a day 80 times each. have also pulled a bunch of acupressure points right off the internet, this for that, nothing deep and organized, and am using them. way less aches and pains, better flexibility, vision improving.

                      what i'm wondering patryc is what if anything would you call this energy that rolls up from my feet to the top of my head when i'm done slapping?

                      i checked curezone and their foot slapping thread got off topic rapidly...i'm a member but never post. maybe i'll go back and ask.

                        are you far / near sighted, do your eyes have problems adjusting / cataracts ?
