Wu Qin Xi / Five Animal Frolic (五 禽戏), Ba Duan Jin ( 八段锦) Qigong or Qi Gong DVDs

Wu Qin Xi (五 禽戏)- or Five Animal Frolic can be regarded as the earliest form of Medical Qigong in Chinese history, dating back to Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220). The beginning of Wu Qin Xi was attributed the famous Chinese Physician and Surgeon Hua Tuo (110-207) who had great skills as a surgeon, acupuncturist, herbalist and had knowledge of human anatomy. He is also belived to be the first person in the world to have developed the use of anaesthesia.

Besides treating his patients when they were ill, Hua Tuo was also keen to recommend physicial exercises for people as a method of rehabilitation, recovery, and most importantly for prevention. Wu Qin Xi is a set of Daoyin(deep strentching) and Tu Na (deep breathing) exercise imitating the actions of animalas based on the habits of the tiger, deer, bear, monkey and bird. Although the profile and value of Wu Qin Xi remained high through the history of China and within the Chinese population around the world, the lack of illustrated documents that survived the turbulent changes of China and indeed the world, means that many different version of Wu Qin Xi is inevitable.

Health Qigong Wu Qin Xi, one of Health Qigong series, is a new development with the support of the Chinese Health Qigong Assoication to embody the essence of the traditional Wu Qin Xi with a balanced physical approach and bring good health and well being for people living in the 21st century. It prevents the scientific concept and the character of modern time sufficiently, and accords with the tratitional principles of regulating the body, breathing and mind in Qigong. As a result, it fits the needs of people to promote their health. (quoted from Tai Chi Union for Great Britian Maganize page 11, No 31. Summer 2009).

Both Wu Qin Xi and Ba Duan Jin dvds below are demonstrated and explained by Professor Yu Dinghai from ShangHai Chinese Medicine University.
