Shaolin Head & Neck Health

Part 1 of Movement Medicine



Why Head & Neck Health?

The person is a whole concept, a WORLD IN MINIATURE. 

Each part of our body is a miniature of our entire body. To understand your body is to understand each section of the body, how it functions, the energy called Qi, and the connection to the body parts either mechanically or energetically. The health of your head and neck is a miniature health of your overall body.

In the Shaolin Warrior Skills Movement Medicine Series, we will deconstruct the body parts and build them up to create the body. This miniature world becomes a person.

Shaolin Philosophy

Martial artists can achieve internal emotional balance through the proficiency of the skill. You can also achieve this balance through an ongoing accumulation of knowledge and an open mind and heart. The experience enhances the insight so one can see the real nature of the world around it. 

When a person is open-minded and mentally relaxed, the flow of Qi is very smooth. The mental balance will, therefore, help the body’s normal function and digestive system. Understanding the principle of starting from slow to quick, when to be slow and when to be quick will help you achieve the perfect coordination of the mind, body, and natural breathing. 

Martial arts is a way of life, and you can practice while walking, sitting, living, lying down, or even sleeping.

The breathing technique includes breathing, body posture, and thought. All these 3 aspects are equally important. The body, mind, and breathing must all be relaxed and natural, in alignment with the spirit, combined with health care and exercise, movement, and stillness. The breathing technique of Qigong aims to nourish the heart while seeking mental liberation.

Due to the comprehensive movements, easiness of learning them and the health care effect is easily practiced until old age.

The Current Problem

In our days, too many people take for granted the existence of their head and neck, although they are of vital importance. Due to the activities we do (sitting at the desk, driving, using the mobile phone or computer), the posture gets altered. When we keep a healthy posture, the head weight is around 5.5kg, but when we bend the neck to look down at the mobile screen, reading a book or driving, the head pressure is about 14kg. The pain and stillness can affect your sleep and head mobility. 

exercise is your prescription to health

When you exercise, you lower your risk for cardiovascular diseases, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, hypertension, and some types of cancers. Moving enables you to feel better, have improved self-esteem, be aesthetically beautiful, be happier, and live a healthier and longer life.

Are you ready to Improve Your Health the Shaolin Way?



This class is ideal for everyone.  From complete beginner to advanced practitioner, for the person who if performs well the routines can achieve certification to be able to teach this particular module; for the person that has failed to get up from a comfortable couch over and over because it is old, fat, uncoordinated and embarrassed to exercise.  For the person who cannot find the motivation to work alone or the person who gets bored quickly because exercise is not fun and the entrepreneur that’s burning the candle at both. The corporate executive who lives from the hotel room into a hotel room. The friend that can never commit to going out because it is tired at the end of the day. The guy that always buys something with the thought will do the trick, canceling, and post pointing. The mom or dad finds excuses for not finding the time in a busy schedule as a full-time parent. So, let’s FIND THE TIME! Human adults need to get their sh*t together to live a free life where they have control over the only thing which belongs to them: their own body.

Well, this class is not suitable for the person who is looking to learn advanced Kung Fu in 2 weeks and get certified as a teacher. The friend who has its mind about what is best as exercise, the one that is looking for fighting. For this type of class, you can join our other courses, such as Shaolin Warrior Skills: The Kung Fu of breathing, The Kung Fu of Foot Work, The Kung Fu Secrets of the Shaolin Warrior Monks Lifestyle and many more.
