This intermediate qigong practice naturally stimulates the wood element of your body in accord with Chinese five-element theory.  

It consists of a single continuous movement which you do repeatedly.  

Through it you learn to move energy upward and downward and expand your energy outward and absorb energy inward - as a tree does.  

You also learn to circulate chi through the macro- and micro-cosmic orbits of your body and how to pulse your joints and cavities.  

It is used in China for conditions such as arthritis.
