I trust you are enjoying the Qi~ssage DVD. It is a very good supportive tool to assist yourself and your friends in need to healing.
Metal372466: In Qi~ssage we use gentle, firm pressure
with a rotating motion to stimulate the flow of energy.
Most importantly, we use the power of our minds
and our hearts to direct and enhance the energy flow for
maximum benefit. In most instances, especial on the head, we are working on symmetric sides at the same time. In this and the other bodywork I've done, doing them both so that both are either going clockwise or counter-clockwise, is not supportive, nor does it feel good. Stimulating a single point, yes. In a massage-acupressure based system, you'll tend to find it following the direction of flow "dot to dot," rather than "dot by dot."
You have to take into consideration the frailty of your friend as well, adjusting the pressure, but always the same light coming from your fingers. Unless you are a bit frail, Chunyi tends to put some pretty good pressure on the client. I tend to focus more of the energy side of things when it comes to doing the Qi~ssage, but that's my background.
