Six Healing Sounds explains how the pressures of modern life can cause excess heat to become trapped around the organs, causing energy blockages and sickness. He shows readers how the vibrations of the Six Healing Sounds and their accompanying postures redistribute this excess heat to the cooler regions of the body, thereby stimulating and balancing chi energy and restoring the vital organs. Regular practice of the Six Healing Sounds promotes optimal health for the organs, increased sexual pleasure, emotional balance, and the prevention of illness.
The Inner Smile is a practice that focuses gratitude and joy on the internal organs to resolve the physical and mental tensions that can lead to illness. In Taoism negative emotions–anger, sadness, depression, fear, and worry–are seen as low-grade energy that causes chronic disease and steals our major life force by creating energy blockages.
The Iron Shirt Chi Kung strength and vitality of your internal organs are the real keys to the overall health of your body. In Strengthen Your Internal Organs Master Chia guides you through certain standing postures, muscle locks, and breathing techniques, known as Iron Shirt Chi Kung. These practices direct internal power to the organs, the twelve tendon channels, and the connective tissues fasciae. By directing more energy into your internal organs you can perfect your body, increase performance, fight disease, and lay the groundwork for higher spiritual work.
