Internal martial arts

Also known as nei jia quan or nei chia ch’uan. Those fighting systems that base their power on cultivating chi, the mind, total relaxation, longevity, and meditation rather than the purely physical means of the external martial arts. Although there are internal aspects to some of the external Shaolin martial arts, in China the term “internal martial arts” usually refers to the three Taoist martial arts of tai chi chuan, hsing-i chuan, and ba gua chang.

As a psychiatrist working in a hospital I treat patients experiencing severe crises. This work can be very stressful at times. For the past 10 months I have been doing standing outer dissolving almost every day. Over this time I have noticed a big decrease in the amount of tension and contractions in my body.
