A    NEW   TAOIST    EXERCISE BY MASAO HAYASHIMA,1978    WU-WEI PRESS, 35  KOREGAON PARK, POONA 411001

I   present  the  condensed  form of    above  book   for   the  benefit  of our  friends for private circulation.  We are going to talk about a  very simple & miraculous exercise which cures “cancer  to constipation ” & many more today’s civilization disease.  Exercises requires just to stand firm  on  ground  & swing  arms  lightly  too & fro from 250 times  to  2000  times. Before  we  proceed  further we should know the Chinese terminology of KI & KETSU.
KI  is  described  as a HEAT in human body.   Human   body  can  be compared  with  a  car  engine.  Fuel  vaporizes  & generates chemical heat which is converted into mechanical heat. Due to friction some of the energy remains as heat in the mechanism.
The delicate human physiology is more complex than this mechanical process. .Heart Brain  , lung, blood circulation, respond to outside environment   consumes certain amount’s of calories. This heat  comes  from food Consumed   digested   &   assimilated   & undergoes a  certain process of chemical change as  does the fuel in the engine.  It Combines with oxygen & glucose molecules which have been  absorbed from the food  into the  blood become heat .Thus, KI  is not separate from KETSU(BLOOD) (the  blood is not an isolated drop of blood but rather  a dynamic process related to the activity of the blood  & the psychological process as well  & KETSU( BLOOD ) is not separate from KI. BLOOD CONVEYS ENERGY ENERGY CONVEYS BLOOD
Thus “ KI – KETSU ”    transfers  the  oxygen   which is inhaled by the lungs & nutrition which is absorbed from the digestive system to each & every cell of the entire body & allow oxidation  & generation of heat, at the same time it eliminates the “WASTE  KI” or “EVIL KI” i.e. Waste matter when circulation of KI-KETSU is impeded  “a hundred disease break out” says Chinese medicine. Swaiso is  a method  to conduct this KI-KETSU to “ every cell & to the nerves of the tips of our four limbs “ to free from disease & maintain radiant health.
ORIGIN : Recently originated in China as one of the do-in Techniques & spread from China, to Hong Kong, South East  Asia, USA,  Canada. Simple & having remarkable effects on l00’s  of diseases, maintains health & healing diseases . It seems too idealistic without a physician. As you know China is undergoing great changes   part of which is  an attempt  to consolidate its medicines,  they  gathered many varied remedies from all over the country, Medical experts then compared , condensed & classified remedies into about 100 basic treatments. From  all the information they gathered  they developed one specific exercise to benefit all, and promoted it through out  the country. This is the SWAISO Exercise, it  is most exceptional native cure of China.
Direct source of SWAISO is  Ekikn-sutra of  Bodnidharma  the  founder of  the zen.  Ekkin  means  changing   the  muscles  i.e.  Invigorating  & rejuvenating  the  body’s  muscles  i.e. .Muscular integration & Vitalization  technical. This is basic Taoist  practice, to attain Natural, young & healthy body. The purpose is to prevent the  “ KI  “ from becoming stuck & left in the body  as TENSIONS OR BLOCKS. Thus clear consciousness arises & with that clarity & natural, realistic outlook on life is possible, strain disappears & future can be viewed with joy , this is a method for healing as well as health. Swaiso  is  a exercise which can be done without  the  particular guidance of a  master & with good results. It is easy needs  little efforts, even for those who are usually reluctant to  do exercise.       SWAISO EXERCISE Swai  means  to throw out evil Kl (energy) which is the cause  of  blocks  and tensions,   the root of all illness. KI  is a Chinese Term used to represent  body heat  which  is required for brain,  heart.,  circulatory, digestive, reproductive organs etc. and  to  meet  the  external environment  i.e.,   heat  and cold etc. This can be understood as a VITAL FORCE  OR PRANA in our system  which is  part  and parcel of our being and it is also pervaded  in  the blood. KETSU is  another Chinese Term used  to represent  complete blood circulation system.  The aim of   TAOIST technique is to maintain harmony between KI and  KETSU to heal the disease  and maintain the health.   SWAISO is a single technique which leads to achieve the same. Swaiso  allows the KI to flow normally in the body to  encourage the flow  of circulation,  and create natural condition in  the body.                                                        “‘ The most important point of Swaiso is the transformation of UPPER  FULL   LOWER EMPTY into                                                     UPPER EMPTY LOWER FULL                                                                                                                                      We  -focus  our energy and awareness more in the  upper half  i.e.,Brain,  head ,  reproductive organ,  digestive, circulatory organs (i.e.,  UPPER FULL).   Thus  fatigue builds and  causes  various diseases because evil-ki  increases. Lower Half i.e.,  legs and buttocks remains empty  (i.e.,  LOWER EMPTY).
To transform above condition  SWAISO is designed.

  1.  Stand   with legs   spread  to  shoulder width , feel     the   toes slightly gripping the  earth.
  2.  Swing both arms , use slight force only on the back swing and allow them to come forward by their own inertia , like a pendulum of clock.
  3. Keep elbow straight , palm facing back , eyes focused straight ahead.
  4. Allow mind to empty and count repetition of swing silently.
  5.  Start with 200 to 300 times finally reaching 1000 to 2000 times.
  6. Be careful that  70% (lower 7) of the energy is in the lower half,
  7. and  30%(upper  3) in upper half i.e.,  upper relaxes and the lower is straightened and dramatic change occurs in the condition of upper active and lower fragile and then even the most chronic diseases are eliminated.
  8. This is the key of successful exercise i.e. Upper-3 , lower-7 to dissolve  blocks and to circulate fresh KI normally in the whole body

To  achieve  upper-3,  lower-7 which is a  complicated  term  the following points  will be helpful :

  1. Relax upper body , keep Mind  still keep back straight, shoulder  loose.  Swing on naturally, loose as if  rowing in the air.  Palms facing down.  Mouth closed but don’t  grit the teeth.  Do not swing elbow too high.  Make pelvis the center of movement and support for pelvis is feet .
  2. Feel  gravitational  pull  in the lower  body.

3         Soles firmly on the earth (bare foot is more conducive), 4         heels like heavy stone, feel strong pull from beneath, 5         grip the earth as if your toes are digging into it. 6         Keep the inner thighs from becoming tense. 4        Try to contract the anus. 5        Your focus (some concentration) should be  on lower abdomen. 6         Occasionally  alternate your directions i.e. if you are facing east , change to west.
In short imagine yourself as standing firm like a peg which has been driven into the ground.
By  this  -firm STANCE (standing position) KI  in  the  soles  is stimulated which reaches to muscle,  skin,  bones and joints and revitalizes the entire constitution. Thus  consciously it  means just to relax upper  half  and concentrate the energy in the lower half to achieve the transformation  i.e. UPPER-3, LOWER-7 Which Is the key principle of success. Most  chronic  diseases result from a loss of balance of   KI  and KETSU.  (blood   circulation).    SWAISO offers a means to readjust this imbalance through acupuncture points on sole’s and heals  the body. The  result of SWAISO is that blocks and stagnant feeling disappears and foot becomes warm, this is the evidence that “KI” is moving smoothly through out the body. As you move your arms, the back, chest and abdominal  muscles are Stretched.  In  this way the circulatory, blocks are broken, the pulse is regulated and the meridian flow is improved. It  has healing effect because the KI  (vital flow) becomes  normal and  the blood circulation regular, thus improves  the body constitution. This is the greatest effect producing cause, therefore,  it  was approved as the most superior of Chinese Folk Treatment.

One Response to NEW TAOIST EXERCISE – S W A I S O

  1. Thank you for sharing this. I did not know that this exercise had a name as I just know it from yoga warmup exercises. Recently I have been struggling with anxiety which has been making my heart race and has probably been increasing my blood pressure as well. After reading this I believe it is a good idea for me to start incorporating the swaiso exercise into my workout routine. Any ways that I can relieve stress and anxiety while benefiting my body in a natural way is very important to me.
