Chi Reaction

When you are recovering from a disease or an injury, it is common to experience a so-called "Healing Crisis". It seems like you are getting worse, then suddenly you get better. This can also happen when practicing Qigong. As the energy begins to flow again to the place of disease, injury or weakness, it may feel more painful or you may have more intense symptoms. This is called a "Chi Reaction". This is a good thing, this is a "Healing Crisis", but it is temporary. It is during these times that it is important to keep practicing as much as you can. You must have faith in your body's ability to heal. And you must have faith in your teachers and your practice.

When a student begins to practice Balance Standing (Inner Dan Arts Qigong) or other standing meditations for the first time, often times their legs begin to shake within a minute or two. This is because of the body's resistance to chi flow. In other words, there is a blockage or reduced chi flow in the energy channels of the legs. The legs may also feel heavy. They may feel like they are burning. This is a chi reaction. With practice, these sensations will go away as the energy channels open and the chi flows smoother. Eventually, the legs will feel stronger and steady. It happened with me and it happens with almost everyone when beginning Qigong practice.

I also experienced this when practicing an exercise called “Spinal Bone Marrow Practice” (Wisdom Healing Qigong). It is known for helping issues with the spine and lower back and more. When I had a low back issue, I had to start slow. It was tight and painful. I did very short practices in the beginning and gradually built up over time. I got over the pain and my low back pain when away. It takes consistent practice and patience when you experience a chi reaction.

Qigong can restore chi and blood flow in the body with practice. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Qigong, it is known that disease occurs in the body when chi flow is disturbed (reduced, blocked or deficient). Through Qigong exercises and meditations, you can improve your health and enhance the quality of your life.
