I didn't consider that bragging, bro! If I wanted to brag, I'd tell a lie. I'd say something like saying I'd put an elephant to shame.

Hello everybody!

I'm new to this Forum, so I'm also a late comer to this topic, but since it's something I have alot of experience with I'll add my two cents worth. By way of introduction, I hold a Master of Science Degree (M.S.) and a Doctorate Degree (O.M.D.) in Chinese/Oriental Medicine from five years of study in Hong Kong many years ago. I also have 45 years of Chinese martial art training and a Master Instructor Certificate in the Shen Men Tao Internal Martial Arts of Old Yang Style Tai-Chi Chuan, Sun Style Pa-Kua Chang, Shansi Hsing-Yi Chuan, and Wu-Tang Shan Chi-Kung.

It has been my observation that regular Internal Arts training...i.e. Tai-Chi, Pa-Kua, Hsing-Yi, and/or stationary Chi-Kung methods...increase the volume of intrinsic energy (Chi) in the body, and act as a catalyst which motivates the active movement of this energy throughout the body. When this enhanced 'chi flow' from the training encounters localized places of blockage or impediment to the energy circulation, such as are often caused by past trauma injuries like serious burns, cuts, bruises, contusions, incisions, wounds, or infections, the chi flow builds up on the 'upstream' side of the blockage within the Chi Meridian Channels located at the past injury site until sufficient energy volume is present to push through the blockage and clear the Channel. This process is sort of like how a 'plumber's snake' or liquid 'Drano' works to clear a clogged water pipe.

The sensations and feelings of this energy build up prior to opening and releasing can oftentimes be quite unpleasant and uncomfortable, if not painful until the blockage or impediment is eliminated. But it's usually only temporary, and will generally soon pass with continued practice.

The biggest mistake many new practitioners of these internal arts make is to stop practicing when they feel these things from their training. This allows the discomfort or pain to subside for the time being, but it will come back again when they start training the internal practices again. So it's best to just practice through it as long as you are certain that the current discomfort or pain isn't due to a recent injury from incorrect training like pushing the body beyond it's current limitations of strength and flexibility.

Regards to all ~
