The reason that I created this Qigong for Hypertension video course is that as part of my Shiatsu practice I prescribe appropriate Qigong for Hypertension sufferers and each of them has told me that they have benefited from practicing these exercises. Not everyone has access to a Shiatsu practitioner, or can afford regular treatment sessions, but most now have access to the internet.
Qigong for Hypertension
In this course you will learn five of the Qigong exercises I prescribe and teach for the alleviation of Hypertension, although normally not all at the one time. In Traditional Chinese Medicine there are many recognized triggers for Hypertension and each Qigong exercise in this course deals with a different trigger. This means that, as a therapist, I determine the trigger (or triggers) and prescribe the appropriate Qigong. However, I cannot do this within a course but what I can do is teach you five Qigong in the knowledge that at least one of them is going to have a beneficial impact. In fact they will all be beneficial but at least one of them will be working on the Hypertension.
At the end of the course you will have all the Qigong tools necessary to lower your blood pressure and, through continued practice, keep it low. Each exercise has two videos. The first is the tuition video where all of the focus points are highlighted along with the movements. The second is a follow me video. There is also a follow me video of the entire sequence.

Qigong for Hypertension – The Benefits
As well as the benefits for dealing with hypertension I have included some of the other benefits that can be gained from practicing these Qigong. The five exercises in this set each work on different pair of meridians. In Traditional Chinese Medicine these meridians are grouped into five qualities. These are known as the Five Elements. In additition to the five exercises, Wuji stance also has a beneficial effect.
- Exercise 1 works with Kidney meridian, Heart meridian and Heart Governor meridian.
Heart 7 reduces hypertension and helps to calm stress, anxiety and irritability.
Heart Governor 6 is another important acupuncture point for the treatment high blood pressure. It aids the proper functioning of the heart and the circulatory system. The benefits include relieving anxiety, nausea, and motion sickness.
- Exercise 2 works with the Stomach meridian and the Spleen meridian. It can be used to treat hypertension and circulatory disorders. It rejuvenates the Qi and the blood as well as treating digestive disorders, general weakness, lower leg pain, PMS symptoms and insomnia.
- Exercise 3 works with the Large Intestine meridian and can help reduce Hypertension. Further benefits include relieving toothache in the upper jaw, eye problems, tension headaches and sinus problems.
- Exercise 4 disperses any Qi that is stuck in Gall Bladder. Gall Bladder 20 is one of the more potent acupuncture points for high blood pressure treatment. This Qigong also alleviates headaches, neck pain, shoulder and upper back pain and neck tension.
- Exercise 5. Hypertension is closely connected to blockages, or sluggishness, in Liver meridian. This Qigong also helps alleviate eye problems, menstrual issues, nausea and vomiting, indigestion, anxiety, irritability, and insomnia.

Questions asked about these Qigong exercises
Q: Sequence of the exercises
Hello dear Mr Lawton,
I really enjoyed the course and I am trying to do the exercises every morning.
My first question would be does the order of the exercises matter? Or can I do them in the order I remember them ?
Second inquiry … I find I have several little “waiting times” during my day. Waiting for the kettle to boil, or for the dryer to finish its cycle, waiting for this and that. I thought I could put these waiting period to good use and practice some Qi Gong. Is it better to do all the exercises only once or twice.. or to do only one exercise for several repetitions ?
Thank you again for your help and your time. I really , really enjoy your courses and your accent 🙂
Wishing you a glorious day, L.R.
A: Hello L,
No, the order does not really matter so you can do them in the order you choose. This order may change as your Shen (consciousness) guides you rather than your brain…………… Use your intuition.
On your second question………… Anyone who has taken part in my Qigong classes will tell you that I often refer to my “Waiting for the kettle to boil” Qigong. It is often the case that these, short and spontaneous, Qigong are more beneficial than practicing at a particular time habitually.
When you use these “waiting times” save some of it to just stand and listen to your body and your energy. Your brain might not be able to make head or tail of what is happening but your Shen does. Then you will have more of the intuitive guidance about what exercise you should be doing next time.
I hope that this is of help. Enjoy your Qigong. Des
