If you are experiencing ANY problems with sexual health or functioning, whether you are male or female there is only 1 of the 100’s of qigong exercises worth considering and that is Reverse Hands Bend Waist or Nourishing Kidneys as it is also known.


From the TCM view all sexual functioning and health is linked to the functioning of the Kidney system.  And as the name of this pattern suggest: Nourishing Kidneys is brilliant for strengthening the Kidney system and making sure it is functioning correctly.

So, if you are having difficulties with fertility, impotence and lack of sexual performance – Reverse Hands Bend Waist is the exercise you want to practice.  All of the qigong exercises are amazing, but this is one that really ‘gives’.  Not only will you benefit from improving all aspects of sexual health by cleansing the kidney and urinary bladder meridian systems and strengthening the kidneys.  You can also expect the following benefits:

  • Enhance the intellect
  • Benefit the pituitary gland
  • Increase confidence
  • Overcome lower back pain and sciatica
  • Overcome incontinence
  • Increase strength, mental clarity, will and determination

So if you are practicing Reverse Hands Bend Waist specifically to overcome Sexual problems, no one will know and if they ask you can say you’re practicing it enhance the intellect.  This really is one of the greatest qigong exercises that the qigong masters of the past have left to us.

The second of the qigong exercises worth considering is Divine Crane Rotating Knees – which can help to overcome sexual problems and enhance sexual performance and enjoyment.

As always, all of the above come with the usual caveat: you must practice qigong to get the benefits and not qigong form =)

Bye for now
