Eastern Technique for Strengthening Lungs: The Power of Tapping and Breathing

In this video, Dr. Alan Mandel shares a proven Eastern technique to strengthen the lungs and enhance breathing. By tapping along the lung meridian, which runs two inches below the outer part of the clavicle, one can experience immediate physiological changes. As you tap, breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth, noticing how your breathing becomes easier and deeper. This technique stimulates neurological centers and clears the respiratory tract, allowing oxygen to reach the cells more effectively. Additionally, it may reduce anxiety and promote relaxation. This safe and effective technique has been practiced for thousands of years and can have tremendous health benefits.

Welcome! Breathing correctly and getting oxygen, which is life to our cells, is one of the most critical things that we need for survival. And now, everyone is in tune with this respiratory focus due to the pandemic. Today, I’d like to share with you a proven Eastern technique to help strengthen your lungs so you can breathe in more oxygen, allowing the cells of your body to stay much healthier.

We’re going to be working with the body’s natural energy pathways, which help balance and strengthen the meridians in your body, giving you more health and healing. Chi is the fundamental vital life force that flows through the body’s energy pathways. Chiong means the work of gathering Life Energy. We’re going to perform rhythmic tapping along the lung meridian. If you look here at this master point that we’re going to work on, it sits about 2 inches below the outer part of our clavicle.

Now, let me show you how effective this technique really is. We’re going to feel these immediate physiological changes. We’re going to use the first three fingers, the tips of our fingers, or you can use these two if you like. And you’re going to come down the outside of the clavicle. We’re going to do both sides. You’ll come down 2 inches and you’ll feel a groove, an indentation. That’s where you’re going to start tapping. That is our Master point. Just start tapping like this.

While tapping, I want you to breathe in through your nose and breathe out of your mouth. And just continue as you continue to tap. You’re going to feel physiological changes occurring. Most of you will feel it behind the nasal area at first. You’ll notice your breathing becomes easier, less shallow, more deep. You’ll feel like you’re breathing in more oxygen. And you’ll continue.

Then, you’ll move along underneath the clavicle and just keep tapping. I want you to do this left side for about a minute total, okay? But the majority of it should be done right in this area. Then, you’ll stimulate across. Then, you’ll take the other fingers and you go back right on the outside of the clavicle, 2 inches below, and start tapping.

These changes are going to be amazing. You’re going to be shocked. And as you keep doing this, it’s going to continue over the next 10, 15, 20 minutes. Your breathing will get easier. Your sinuses will likely start to drain. You’ll feel pressure come off. You’ll feel changes in your respiration. Just keep tapping.

As we stimulate these neurological centers back to the brain, as the meridians start to flow, as it starts to clear, as it starts opening up your respiratory tract down your bronchus and your lungs, it allows that oxygen to get to where it needs to go.

Then, come across below the clavicle and just keep tapping. And while doing so, you may notice lots of other changes. Your anxiety can start to fade, becoming more relaxed, more in tune with yourself. Your breathing slows down, your respiration, your blood pressure. And this is going to kick in your parasympathetic nervous system, allowing your system to work more in homeostasis, to have better balance and better health. It’s beautiful!

Remember that when you do this technique, you’re going to tap on the outside, the majority of your taps, and you work across the clavicle underneath on both sides. But you will have the majority of taps here and here. You should start to feel really relaxed, and many of you will start to see other neurological changes as well. I would be really curious to know what you experience.

But do this technique as often as necessary. This will make tremendous changes. It’s safe and effective, and this technique has been around for thousands of years.
