Title: Bai Qi Chong Ding

Date: Unknown

Artist: Unknown

Information: This woodblock is taken from the Xiuzhen Miyao, a Qigong text with 49 exercises designed to promote a fit and healthy body. The text is of unknown origin but was rediscovered and published with a preface by Wang Zai in 1513. This illustration depicts Bai Qi Chong Ding (One hundred Qi rushing to the top of the head) and is an exercise designed to treat pain throughout the body. To perform the exercise, the patient must sit on a high stool with straight legs and with their feet on the floor. Next, the body is to be moved in a fashion that resembles bending a bow while circulating Qi for 10 breaths.
