Fang Song Gong 放松功 - Relaxation as a way to enter the silence

In the Hui Chun Qi Gong set, the Fang Song Gong or relaxation method is one of the most important and basic exercises that serves on one hand as a preparation method for going into the following exercise. Later on, it will underlie all the other Qi Gong exercises, helping to build up the correct body posture and connecting the three outer harmonies with each other.

Relaxing sequence - the listed order is not a must, it is only one way how you can do it!


Each of these points can be relaxed with the help of the breath. By breathing in, perceiving the point, breathing out, relaxing the point!



It can be varied, that one stays at one point one breath or three breaths!

There are different variations of the Fang Song Gong exercises:


  • still
  • dynamic
  • standing
  • sitting
