6 Sounds is a foundational medical qigong practice for healing our organs and the emotions associated with them. Every class will start with the practice Self Massage, a daily practice to open the channels in our body, and then we’ll  move into the 6 Sounds practice. I urge you to attend every class in order to derive maximum benefit. However, if your schedule doesn’t allow for weekly attendance, I welcome you to attend as you can.

From Dr. Liu Dong and Master Liu He: “Six Sounds Therapy is one of the most powerful healing techniques from ancient China and has been further developed in the Liu family for generations.  The six sounds vibrate and invigorate the five internal organs and manage the emotions.”

“According to the Taoists, emotions are at the root of most diseases.  When a person contracts a disease, he may be killed by his emotions before the disease can kill.  Excessive emotion can lead to negative thoughts.  When the mind is negative, it sends negative information to the body.  That’s how diseases develop in the mind and body over time.”

Qigong is one of the ancient Chinese health practices that integrates inwardly focused intention and attention, physical movements, breathing techniques and sound.
The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and refers to the life force or vital energy that flows through all things in the universe.
The second word, Gong, pronounced gung, means accomplishment, or skill that is cultivated through steady practice. Together, Qigong (Chi Kung) means practicing healing through cultivating our awareness of ourselves as energetic beings.  It is a system practiced for personal growth, increased vitality and internal balance. Ultimately it is a practice that can lead to the capacity to heal others.
