The Six Healing Sounds or 'Liu Zi Jue' is an ancient health cultivation practice from China, with a rich proud history of over 2000 years. The classics say: 'there is one way to breathe in and six ways to breathe out'. Learn gentle movements and mantras for the internal organs of the body: Liver, Heart, Spleen, Lungs, Kidney and San Jiao (Triple Heater). The Six Healing Sounds gently vibrates and massages the internal organs, clears stagnation and stale energy from the body, and harmonises the emotions to create a state of inner peace
The Six Healing Sounds has a long history in China. Used as a self-cultivation tool, it is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine where sounds have a connection to the internal organs. The Chinese name is Liu Zi Jue, meaning, literally, "six characters knack or secrets." The real meaning behind them is to use the sound syllable to vibrate and massage the internal organs to maintain health, or to heal if one is sick. To the Chinese, to heal means to be in harmony or balance. In fact, that is the goal of all the Chinese healing arts - to bring one into balance. The Six Healing Sounds will strengthen what is deficient, and will sedate what is excess. Six Healing Sounds Made Simple is a bold step to introduce the art to the West in its authentic form. Although there are many schools of Six Healing Sounds that are taught here, most are focusing on making loud sounds with the throat alone, and do not address the intricacies and practice of a healing nature. Hendrik Santo has made a simplified method in which the practitioner can learn and practice and immediately benefit. It is used as a method of self-healing, and can be used by anyone. Six Healing Sounds in a nutshell, can be described as almost like humming to oneself with breathing, while in meditative seating, and mental state in Samadhi. To sum it up that simply, is an over-simplification, as it takes some time to cultivate those steps. In his teachings, Hendrik Santo pays close attention to the details of mental state, physical posture, relaxation, breathing, timing, sound, mouth formation, rhythm, and duration of the Six Healing Sounds. These are further supplemented with understanding the Chinese Medicine principles and concepts behind them.
