The kidneys are seen as crucially important to health in Traditional Chinese Medicien TCM. Cleansing the kidneys with energy excercises and simple practices will redouble your energy and life flow. SEE the video below…
Strong or Weak Kidneys
Weak Kidneys make you cold, tired, susceptible to illness, pale, fearful. Strong Kidneys lead to vitality, bodily warmth, warm hands, haleness and heartiness, courage, and wisdom. The Kidneys are also thought to feed and strengthen all the other internal organs. With weakened Kidneys, or Kidneys emptied of Qi through illness, lifestyle factors, or overexertion all other organs suffer, as does your health.
Strengthening the Kidneys is always good to do, and the whole body/mind benefits.
Psoas Muscle Lengthening
The hip joint has two main parts. The ball and the socket. The ball rotates within the pelvic hip socket. The ball of the hip is also called the “head” or cap of the femur (femur = thigh bone).
The head of the femur is supported by the angled “neck” which joins to the long vertical body of the femur (thigh bone). At the base of the femoral neck is a boney protrusion. There are two very large muscles which converge into a single attachment to this protrusion.
New health Practice:
Warm a glass of spring water until hot. Drink minimum of 2 glasses per day.
This cleanses the internal system, liver and kidneys.
