Three Dantians and Twining Exercise
Three Dantians is a way of opening and closing your back along the vertical axis. The three dantians are along the centre front line; the lower dantian is at your belly button, the middle dantian at your chest and the upper dantian at your forehead. They are like gateways with a front door and a back door - as the front opens, the back closes and vice versa. The movement is snake-like. Twining Exercises is similar in that it opens and closes your back, while at the same time rotating your wrists, connecting the hand movement with the movement of the dantian. If you practise these exercises regularly you will find your back moves more freely and you experience less pain in your neck, shoulders and lower back. You may even find you grow taller!
