Five Animal Exercises Qigong: Deer Set

Workshop Handbook

Authored by Andrew Nathaniel Plitt

Edition: 1

The Five Animal Exercises Qigong set is one of the oldest known Qigong sets and has been used to maintain health for hundreds of years in China. The movements of this set are meant to mimic the movements of five different animals and are focused on massaging and strengthening specific internal organ groups. In the Deer set the internal organs that are focused on the most are the kidneys and urinary bladder.

The Chinese believe that healthy kidneys are the foundation of good health and they designed each of the movements in this set to, not only massage the kidneys, but also activate the kidney and urinary bladder meridians, to help balance these organs in a far gentler way than would be seen in acupuncture or acupressure.

In this book Shifu Andrew Plitt describes and demonstrates the entire Deer set from the "Five Animal Exercises" Qigong set (also known as the Wu Qin Xi Qigong set). This book was created to go along with the "Five Animal Exercises Qigong: Deer Set" workshop that is taught by Shifu Plitt, but can be used by anyone to learn this Qigong set in their own home.
