Mustang 8-brocade rejuvenates your body Part Six

The Mustang Shenzhan Technique is a series of stretching exercises for the maintenance and repair of our physical body. The Mustang 8-brocade Technique is just one of a suite of modalities of the Mustang Shenzhan Technique. It is a basic technique which is easy to learn and practice.

As practitioners of life cultivation, we engage in the Mustang 8-brocade Technique to juvenate our body. When we practice the technique on a daily basis, we will enhance our physical fitness and prevent illness. We will look and feel younger.

The Mustang 8-brocade Technique consists of eight styles or movements. In order to learn this technique properly, you start with the first movement. You memorize the instructions outlined here and then you visualize the movements and associated breathing method in your mind until you have it firmly in your mind.

While you are practicing, you do not refer to the instructions, or the pictures, or the video. You have to practice it from memory. You start to practice the movements and breathing, visualizing the movements in your mind. You focus on the movements by the eyes-nose-mind technique that you have learned before.

We have seen a housewife cooking a new recipe by watching a video on her mobile phone set on the kitchen counter top while she does her cooking. We are simply amazed by her actions. Do not imitate this housewife while you learn any Mustang Shenzhen Technique.

This Mustang 8-brocade Technique is suitable for people of all ages. It is best to practice outdoors in the morning before breakfast. If you sweat after the exercise, take a shower, or swipe off the sweat with a towel before breakfast. Do not let your skin absorb the sweat back into your body again.

We group all eight movements here for convenience. When you learn and practice, learn and practice one by one. Learn one until you are well versed with it, and then go on to the next. Try to learn one movement a week. Do not try to learn and practice more than one or all at once.

As practitioners of life cultivation, most of us take the Mustang 8-brocade Technique as the cornerstone of our fitness program to restore us to a younger self.

Here is the sixth movement of the Mustang 8-brocade Technique. Enjoy.

06 Fortify your kidneys

The movement of this posture focuses on the waist, which is the home of the kidneys. Long-term exercise of the waist can play a role in connecting the he meridian and expanding the du meridian. It has the effect of strengthening the kidneys, refreshing the brain and improving eyesight, and other benefits.

01 Movement

01 Raise the arms from the front of the body and stretch them upwards fully. Stretch up your arms hard so that you feel that the chain of the spine is being pulled apart.

02 Then drop the arms, hands move down the back, bend the upper body forward, stretch the legs straight, and move the palms all the way to the ankles. If you can’t even reach your ankles, your ligaments are getting old.

03 Press the instep with both palms, raise your head, slump your waist, stretch your legs straight, and pause for three seconds. If you can’t reach your feet, pretend that you are doing it.

04 Get up slowly, stretch your arms forward, lengthen your lumbar spine, stretch your legs straight, and hold your body with your arms, feeling that the entire lumbar spine is stretched out. Now you have returned to the original position as in step one.

05 Repeat the above movement fifteen to twenty times or as much as you see fit.

06 You may practice with deep breathing. Follow the instructions in a verse as follows.

The style moves with the breath to determine the depth. Bend down and exhale to climb the legs and feet. Extend the waist and inhale to reach the sky. Each exhale and inhale is one cycle of breath. Follow the breath to be natural.

When bending down, slowly exhale all the turbid air in your body. When you stand up and stretch your waist, breathe in clean air. It varies from person to person so please breathe naturally.

02 Tips

01 Inhale (nine beads method) when you raise your arms to the sky.

02 Exhale when you bend the upper body forward, both hands follow the bladder meridian down to the heel, and then move forward to hold the toes. Pause briefly. Allow the mind to guard the yongquan acupoint at the center of the foot.

03 Inhale (nine bead method) while slowly straightening the waist, hold the hands to both sides of the waist. Allow the mind to lead the breath to the waist, guarding the mingmen acupoint.

04 Exhale while you are standing as your return to the original position. Now you have completed one movement.

05 Repeat the movement fifteen to twenty times.

06 When you practice this movement, you may cause your body to lean back too much, bending the waist and bending the knees. To correct it, when you lean back you should try to keep the balance and maintain stability. When you bend your upper body forward and down, the knees should be straight, and the degree of bending down should be done depending on the softness of your waist. Do not force yourself.

07 The movement of this posture focuses on the waist, which is the home of the kidneys. Long-term exercise of the waist can play a role in connecting the he meridian and expanding the du meridian. It has the effect of strengthening the kidneys, refreshing the brain and improving eyesight.

08 In step one, when you stand, you should stand with loose shoulders and neck. The step is shoulder-width apart, and the center of gravity is on the sole of the forefoot. At this time, the jianjing acupoint is opposite to the yongquan acupoint.

09 When you press the waist with both hands, the laogong acupoint of the two palms is pressing on the shenshu acupoint on the waist. You should massage the shenshu acupoints a few times. This is the key to strengthening the kidneys.

10 When you bend down, the baihui acupoint on your head should face the ground and the buttocks should face the sky.

11 In general, you exhale when you are bending over, and you finish exhaling when you reach your feet. You inhale when you are standing up.

12 When you are bending over, your arms run along the back, and the line going down is the bladder meridian. When the arms are pulled down along the body, a little force is used to dredge the bladder meridian, so that the body can discharge toxins. Focus on your fingers, use your hands instead of your waist to apply force. You will stretch your lumbar spine at the same time.

13 For those with high blood pressure and cerebrovascular sclerosis, do not bend the head too low or too fast while practicing the movement.

03 Notes

01 People with hypertension, cervical spine and lumbar spine problems who are not suitable for large forward flexion should be cautious in doing this movement. If you are a sedentary person with lumbar muscle strain and kidney deficiency problems, then this movement is suitable for you.

02 When you bend down and climb your feet, you can also feel it, from the neck and shoulders to the back, the legs and feet, all over the body, pulling it everywhere.

03 You first remember the position that your hands can reach at first, and then you will practice lower and lower until your palms can reach the ground. Congratulations, your muscles and veins are now supple and reborn. Of course you have to persevere in order to reach your goal.

04 The lumbar muscle strain troubles many people and makes people restless. Strained psoas muscle fibers are like hair that has not been combed for a long time. It is messy, fragile, and sticky.

When bending over to climb feet, just like combing hair, the psoas muscle fibers are divided, stretched, and unblocked, so that the muscle fibers become flexible, so as to achieve the purpose of not having pain in general.

05 The waist is the house of the kidney. The kidney likes a warm and clean house to work well. When bending over to climb the feet, by slowly bending forward and extending backward, it can stimulate the spine, du meridian, mingmen acupoint , yangguan acupoint, weizhong acupoint, and pull the kidneys, adrenal glands and other organs at the same time.

After a few rounds, let the waist come alive and moisten the kidney essence. Therefore, for those with a small kidney deficiency and frequent backache and leg pain, this movement is very good.

06 Do not practice immediately after a meal.

04 Benefits

The major benefits for this movement can be summarized as follows.

01 It will strengthen your waist and lower abdomen.

02 It has the effect of strengthening the kidneys, refreshing the brain and improving eyesight.

03 If you are a sedentary person with lumbar muscle strain and kidney deficiency problems, then this movement will improve the conditions.

04 Muscles and veins will become supple and reborn, reducing pain in general.

05 If you suffer from high blood pressure or arteriosclerosis, proceed with caution, or forgo the movement altogether.
