The 5 Routines 五节动功

The five basic routines of Soaring Crane Qi Gong begin with relaxation and are done in a standing position. The practitioner of Qi Gong attempts to relax his body section by section and to identify where there is a build-up in tension. Awareness of these areas is important, because it is the first step in treatment. Through this awareness, the patient begins to gain control of his body and its response to stresses, both physical and mental. Soaring Crane uses positive commands to adjust posture and relieve tension. This is achieved with the help of an instructor teaching the correct performance of the five basic routines.

Proper posture begins with standing at rest. The maintenance of proper alignment and posture is emphasized throughout the routine. The input of the instructor helps the patient to gradually develop a greater self-awareness and ability to gain greater control of his posture. In some ways, this is similar to the Alexander technique. Spinal elongation and mobilization movements are used in various parts of the routines. There are specific movements for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, which is consistent with the osteopathic or chiropractic approach of dealing with the proximal pathology and vertebral alignment.

Combinations of upper extremity movements stretch the entire neuraxis. Many of the postures are similar to sophisticated nerve glides or dynamic nerve tension postures. The routines also incorporate spinal stabilization and strengthening of the scapular stabilizers. By the end of the routine, the practitioner has held his arms up for a significant amount of time and has been challenged to maintain proper spinal alignment during dynamic activity with the arms, combined with a single-leg stance or a partial squat on two legs.

Smooth and symmetric movement is emphasized to help develop normal scapular thoracic rhythm and “re-educate” the body. Through this re-education, the patient is enabled to dismantle those pathologic movement patterns that may be perpetuating symptoms. Feedback from a teacher and concentration help the patient to become more attuned to his body, gain increased control, and acquire independence in the practice of Qi Gong. In a sense, the teacher replaces a biofeedback machine: she notices tension and asymmetries and gives instructions on how to eliminate them.

Between each of the five routines, relaxation exercises are repeated. The relaxation response itself, which has been attributed to the repetition of specific movements or breathing patterns followed by clearing of the mind, may contribute to overall health independent of the specific stretches.
