Qian Kun Wands, litterally translated as sticks of Heaven and Earth are named after the first and second hexagram of the I Ching hexagram: 乾 qian 坤 kun.
As a component of the Knife Therapy, the exercises Qian Kun sticks are usually done before each session of Dao Liao.
Practiced indoors or outdoors barefoot, they used to exchange energy between the macrocosm of the universe and the microcosm of the human being. Negative energies are thus removed and the body’s energy starts flowing naturally.
Before a session of Dao Liao, these exercises are a preparation to optimize the care. But they also are part of a daily discipline. Preferably, they should be practiced in the morning between 5:00 and 7:00 and the evening between 5:00 pm and 7:00pm.
There is a synthesis of 5 movements that can be done between 05 and 10 minutes if time is short. There are also a number of more varied movements that takes more time. Group practice added benefit to the exercises.
A regular practice contributes to a significant improvement in health. Your body becomes stronger and your mind more quiet.
