Iron Crotch Qigong 6

鐵襠功  tiě dāng gōng

Iron Crotch Qigong strengthens kidney function, boosts yang energy, nourishes essence, and benefits the constitution. It can help with erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, male infertility, and aging.

Massaging the Testicles:

Sit comfortably and relax the whole body. Make the breath slow, long, smooth, and regular without straining while paying attention to the rising and falling of the abdomen.

Slip the pads of the index and middle fingers of each hand under the testicle on the same side. Lift gently. Place the thumbs on top, apply moderate pressure and massage the testicles with a side to side rolling motion, breathing naturally. You should achieve a slightly achy, distending, but very comfortable sensation. If it’s not comfortable, you are overdoing it. Repeat 81 times.

This is part six of a series on Iron Crotch. Although the movements appear to be simple, there are important subtleties that only reveal themselves in practice. Unless you are already well-versed in qigong, do not practice except under the guidance of an experienced mentor.
