About Us

Medical Daoyin is a unique form of mind body practice, characterized by the integration of meditation and stretching in motion, founded in 2011 by Dr. Jing Liu, PhD, Lic. Ac. and a previous physician, who integrated the concepts of meditation, Taiji and stretching with clinical medical science.

 

Daoyin was the ancient name of QiGong, started 1200 years ago in China, originally with the contents of meditation (Qigong) and stretching techniques in an attempt to harmonize wellbeing of both the mind and the body.  Daoyin Health Society,

太极导引由刘京医学博士在美国波士顿地区于2012年创立。现代气功源自1200年前导引术。导引原旨“导气令和,引体令柔”。 导引健康社是由州政府批准的非营利组织,目的在于培训和推广太极导引。我们的宗旨是为大众提供科学的锻炼方式。这套练功系列是根据尊重传统并符合现代医学的原则设计,每个动作的设计都具备特定的保健的目的。在导引功社全体教练和义工的努力下,我们的努力已经有了可喜的回报。欢迎你成为我们的新学员!

Essential Principles of Taiji Daoyin

Daoyin stretching and exercise follows the principles of:

1.     Abdominal breathing, expanding diaphragm while inhaling.

2.     Stretching the body while exhaling and relaxing while inhaling, particularly the spine.

3.     Spine is the center of the motions. Using the spine to lead shoulder and arm motions; and the spine spiral motions are driven by the hip.

4.     Different from the stationary stretching, Daoyin stretching is in motion and always on the orbits of circles or spirals.

5.     Movements are as gentle and calm as water flowing.

6.     Yin and Yang motions; a pair of opposite directions of motions is required to keep the physical balance.

7.     Mind and body integration through breathing and inner vision training.

  1. 以意念引领的腹式呼吸,. 吸气时意念引领“气”下沉丹田,膈肌自然膨降如吹气球,以期更好的达到身心合一

  2. 呼气时身体放松,呼气时肢体拔伸

  3. 脊柱保持竖直

  4. 呼气脊柱向上拔伸,带动上肢动作

  5.  吸气时阔胸(开),呼气时胸廓自然放松(合)

  6. 拔伸运动多沿圆形或螺旋轨迹

  7. 脊柱旋转由髋而不是腰驱动

  8. 保持如流水般柔顺、宁静而自然的运动
