Notice the stretching out of the joints as reeling silk is performed. A light stretch of all of the joints: the shoulder, elbow, wrist, fingers allows chi to flow. Breathe through the ming men and out through the dantian. Slow even breath moving from the ming men through the body and returning to the dantien brings the chi to the dantian. Once chi fills the dantian the chi is available to circulate through the body.
