Head, Neck, and Shoulders

EyeMassage

The eyes are the doorways to the soul. They are connected to the entire nervous system, which gives them a special importance. In Taoism the eyes are regarded as yang energy that guides all chi flow in the body.

The different areas of the eyes correspond to different organs of the body, so they reveal the health of your entire body: You can tell which organs are weak or toxic by looking at your eyes. Nowadays people use their eyes much more than in the past to read, watch television, and work with computers, other electronic devices, and microscopes. This strains them a great deal and allows much of the energy of the connected organs to be drained out. Massaging the eyes will reenergize the vital organs.

Performing Eye Massage
Begin with the procedure for bringing energy to the hands and face, contracting the middle, left, and right sides of the anus. When your hands and face are hot, direct the chi to both eyes until you feel them filled with energy.

1. Close your eyes. Use your fingertips to gently massage your eyeballs through your closed eyelids, six to nine times clockwise, then six to nine times counterclockwise. Then gently massage the area around the lids the same number of times. Be aware of painful spots and massage those places until the pain goes away. Pay special attention to the inner and outer corners of the eyes. Massaging these points of the Gall Bladder meridian will relieve eye ailments. However, when rubbing near the corners of the eyes, do not rub too hard, because you can make the corners of the eyes droop down. Finish with rubbing the corners of the eyes upward.

2. Pull up the eyelids to increase the fluid. Use the thumb and index finger to gently pinch and pull up the eyelids then release them. Do this six to nine times.

3. Massage the eye sockets by bending your index fingers and using the lower section to rub the upper and lower bones of the eye sockets six to nine times.

4. The next step is to get a tear out of your eyes, which will strengthen them. Hold an index finger up about eight inches from your eyes (or put a dot on the wall five or six feet away from you). Stare at it intently without blinking until you feel like a fire is burning in your eyes. The Taoists believe that this technique burns the toxins out of the body through the eyes.

5. Bring chi to your eyes by rubbing your hands until they are warm, then closing your eyes, and covering your eye sockets with your palms. Feel the chi from the hands being absorbed into the eyes. Rotate your eyes six to nine times, first in a clockwise direction, then counterclockwise.

Eyeball Exercise
The eyes have many muscles that we typically do not exercise very much. This causes them to become weak, contributing to poor eyesight. In addition, the eyes are closely connected with certain organs and nerves. Exercising the eyeballs is not only the best exercise for the eye muscles but will also exercise these linked areas by putting pressure on them:

• Contracting the middle of the eyeballs strengthens the back of the eye muscles and the inner ear.

• Moving the eyeballs upward by looking toward the crown strengthens the upper eye muscles and stimulates the pituitary and pineal glands.

• Moving the eyeballs from side to side strengthens the side eye muscles as well as the ear canals, eardrums, tear ducts, and the nose.

• Moving the eyes downward strengthens the lower eye muscles as well as the lower parts of the ear canals and the nervous system.

Performing the Eyeball Exercise
This exercise begins with closing the eyes and becoming aware of them.

With the eyes still closed, cup your palms over them, inhale, and contract the sexual organ and the part of the anus as directed, while looking straight ahead, to the left, above, to the right, and below.

1. Contract the middle of the anus, and pull the eyeballs back into their sockets.

2. Contract the left side of the anus and the left sides of the eyeballs.

3. Contract the front of the anus and the tops of the eyeballs.

4. Contract the right side of the anus and the right sides of the eyeballs.

5. Contract the back of the anus and the bottoms of the eyeballs.

Staring Practice
If you have difficulty maintaining eye contact when you are talking with someone because you feel nervous and frightened, this can be caused by weakness of the gallbladder and kidneys. You may also experience that your voice becomes very low and hard to hear. To improve this, you can use the Inner Smile, Six Healing Sounds, and Chi Self-Massage as described above, plus the practice of staring.

To perform the practice of staring, look at your face in a mirror for two to five minutes each day for the first week. After ten days you can begin to stare at your eyes and increase your confidence by looking at your irises. Gradually you will lose the fear of looking into other people’s eyes.

Revue de presse

"Master Mantak Chia pieces this system into a logical routine any can duplicate, using methods used by the masters to explore the theory and purposes behind Chi Self-Massage. Spirituality blends with practical application in an easily-followed guide." (Diane C. Donovan, California Bookwatch, Oct 2006)

"Spirituality blends with practical application in an easily-followed guide." (The Midwest Book Review, Oct 2006)

"If you have any recurring pain in your day-to-day life I recommend getting this book, I've found it very helpful." (Amanda Bugeaud, Timeless Spirit Magazine, July 2007)

"Written with clarity and purpose, these pages offer readers a solid introduction to the principles of chi self-massage. . . . [Chia's] logical progression of ideas allows readers to quickly grasp this new information and to build on it as the pages turn. . . . For such a short book, the overall explanation of this system is explicit, providing a most impressive view of these techniques. Chi Self-Massage presents a wealth of information that can positively impact the health of readers." (Curled up with a Good Book, Aug 2006)

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A unique and informative book on the Taoist Way massage techniques for health. 6 février 2014
Par Joseph J. Truncale - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This very interesting and unusual book has specific information on various massage techniques for the entire body. They are all based upon the Taoist techniques developed more than 5000 years ago. The numerous illustrations showing each technique are clear and easy to follow with the instructions given. Even though I am more of a scientific minded person, the fact that these techniques have been used for thousands of years successfully to rejuvenate people makes this 112 page text a compelling read.

This book is organized into seven parts detailing each technique. Part one begins by showing movements to prepare you for Chi-Self-Massage. Part two explains healing hands. Part three gets into massage techniques for the head, neck and shoulders. Part four deals with exercises to detoxify the organs and glands. "Relieving constipation: a major cause of ill health" is covered in section five. Section sex shows how to massage the knees and feet. The final section focuses on the daily practice of Taoist Rejuvenation techniques.

This fully illustrated short book has a lot of information within its pages for those interested in the Taoist way massage techniques. This book has such detailed instructions on the Taoist rejuvenation techniques that it can be used as an excellent reference source for those into this esoteric practice. An enjoyable and interesting read.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior's poetic tribute).

I am committed to doing this program for at least 3 to 5 times a week we are very lucky to live in a day and age when these secrets are so readily available to lay people.. I have found the other authors books to be a difficult read but not this one. It is short and sweet and cuts to the chase, no fillers. There is a lot here that is useful.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good info Mediocre Illustrations 11 novembre 2013
Par Joel H. Hamilton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Information is very good and inclusive, detailing of diagrams and anatomy left me wanting much more exact detail than what is often provided, I needed to reference other more detailed material to get the precise locations and information I wanted, somewhat frustrating in that regard-Iron Shirt is much better illustrated for my needs.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 very good 22 juillet 2012
Par David - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book has a number of exercises. It discusses preparatory exercises, massage of head, neck, shoulders, detoxing organs and glands, constipation, other massage, taoist rejuvenation, and so forth. This book is comparable to The Complete System of Self-Healing: Internal Exercises, The Art of Chi Kung: Making the Most of Your Vital Energy, and some other books by the author. This is a useful book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Easy to use and understand to empower yourself for better health 17 mars 2006
Par KC - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Master Chia and his wife have a collection of books based on Chinese healing, specifically dealing with massage, Chi energy or both. This book is an easy-to-use guide even for someone without any background knowledge on the subject and provides a good introduction that is brief and easy enough to understand so the healing can start nearly immediately.

Broken into chapters according to anatomy, there are simple drawings showing location and technique accompanied by step-by-step instructions that guide your hands and explanations that detail the benefit. Be aware these are not necessarily 'cures' or immediate fix-its for everything that ails you, but rather a way of healing and prevention to promote overall health. By massaging the body's organs, which work flawlessly for decades without much attention (and we often take for granted), we can expel toxins, help them work more efficiently and bolster our immune system without drugs, side effects or expensive doctor visits.

Also, by empowering ourselves, we take more control of our health and our lives.
