  • San Jiao is a concept in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which means “three burners”. They direct the integration, communication, and coordination of the five organ systems or networks of the body (Kidney, Liver, Heart, Spleen and Lung). It is also the passage for water, nutrients and fluid throughout the body. This exercise activates the fluid flowing in it and ensures proper nourishment throughout the body.

  • This routine is to regulate the spleen and stomach by the lifting and lowering actions. It contributes to the ascending of spleen-qi and the descending of stomach-qi, thus promoting the digestive functions.

  • This routine helps to enrich the essence and blood, calming the mind and promoting organ functioning.
