This set of Chi Kung exercises and breathing is designed to regulate the bloodstream and calm the heart. The main focus is on the Heart & Kidney meridians, as they are a matching pair: the heart is a yin organ, associated with the element fire, while the kidneys are a yang organ, associated with the element water. The eight exercises generally make people feel calm and relaxed and the increase in circulation may usually be felt and/or seen in the hands. The breathing matches the exercises throughout.
