Written works from China over 2000 years ago, indicate a belief that all life is made up of, and impacted by the five basic "Life Elements". However, couched in esoteric terms and mystical beliefs, a culture of dependence on the "Master Practitioner" for a basic quality of life is the result, rendering it limited therapeutically. Integrative Qi Gong(r), in an effort to eliminate the magical thinking and mysitcism, which creates more problems than cures, uses the concept to engage the mind - positively - while stretching the muscles, deeply breathing, flexing the joints, etc. - "As you perform the various "Elemental Energy Routines" of Integrative Qi Gong(r), think of the positive aspects of the elements and how to increase those concepts to improve your life. Remember that balance is the key: the associated animal, for instance, won't stop a car, but if you are observant of your environment, like that animal, you won't step into its path."
