Ping Shuai Gong – A Simple But Powerful Qigong Technique

by drt on August 8, 2008

Few years ago, a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and a very successful business woman Dr. Angela Wang demonstrated to me a simple Qigong (Chi-kung, 氣功) technique which she said would be good for my health. This was after a discussion about my intention to get rid of my high blood pressure medications. I didn’t ask the name and I have never practiced the technique because I thought it was too simple but honestly, the main reason was, I didn’t like any repetitive and routine tasks.

Few days ago, another friend Teresa sent me some youtube links. I didn’t know what these links were, since I was using webmail at that time and the chinese characters on Teresa’s email could not be displayed. However, since they were linked to youtube, so I then clicked them anyway. To my surprise, I saw the same technique as what Dr. Wang had shown me few years ago being practiced by the crowds in the video. That caught my attention big time and I then listened carefully to the explanation.

As you all may know from all my resent postings, I’ve written a lot about the efforts in helping Rina Fitria on her fighting against cancer, and that was one of the reasons I was very surprised listening to the testimonials from a prostate cancer and a liver cancer survivors as shown in one of the videos. I then started to search for more info on this simple 平甩功 – Ping Shuai Gong (in pinyin) or in most of the Taiwan based references, Ping Shuai Kung, the way Qigong (in pinyin) is also spelled as Chi-Kung in Taiwan.

The following video shows this new technique of shaking the hands that was developed by Qigong Master Li Feng Shan from Meimen Qigong and Culture Center. It’s a 1:25 minutes short video with English explanation in the later half of the video:

As explained in the video, basically this is a shaking hand exercise, where anybody can do it anywhere any time. You can find more info in Meimen Qigong and Culture Center site.

I’m glad that through my Internet search, finally I also got in touch with one of the cancer survivor, Dr. David TF Hsu, a neurosurgeon that was trained in Western Medicine. He is a colon cancer survivor, and his story in fighting colon cancer has been widely available in Chinese Internet sites. Dr. Hsu credited his survival with the teaching and the wisdom of Master Li, and Dr. Hsu’s himself practices Ping Shuai Gong daily. I will post more on Dr. Hsu in my next posting.

I’ve also included this 6:57 minutes video that carries the testimonials of cancer survivors I mentioned above. Sorry, the narration is in Chinese (mixed with some Taiwanese in the testimonial of prostate cancer survivor) but I hope you can find some Chinese friend around you to explain what was described in the video and again, you may find more info from Meimen QACC.

Bung Aries, Unfortunately, the second video does not have an English sub title or translation. Good idea, not difficult to follow. I am looking froward to practicing it. Have you tried it ? Thanks for sharing it.

@frans rudyanto. Yes bung Frans. I’ve done it three times a day, 10 minutes each. However, I still need to take a short video then either send it to Dr. Shu or to Meimen Qigong and Cultural Center to make sure that I’m doing it right.

This Video needs to be presented in English

Dear Dewey,

I have requested the permission to have its English translation but so far I have no luck. However, there is a short demonstration by Dr. Shu on Ping Shuai Gong at the end of his video interview that I have translated into English here.

Thanks for the visit.

Very useful and effective exercise, will continue exercise it as long a I live as I am a liver cancer patient. I hope I can receive more information on exercises that can help to check the growth of the liver cancers cells. Thank you

I have been doing this exercise since April last year, and my right shoulder pains/injuries are gone. Prior to that, I was unable to raise my right arm at all but after the practice for about 10 months, i have recovered almost 95%.

I could see good improvement after 3 months into the practice, and that has motivated me to continue even until today. Sharing of my story will probably benefit more people….
