Daoyin Shi Er Fa, also known as the "Twelve Daoyin Techniques" or "Twelve Guiding Energy Exercises," is a type of Chinese qigong that consists of twelve movements or exercises that are designed to improve the flow of qi in the body and promote physical and mental health.

The twelve movements of Daoyin Shi Er Fa involve a combination of breathing techniques, stretching, and self-massage that aim to stimulate the meridians, or energy channels, of the body, and promote the circulation of qi. Each movement has specific benefits for different organs and systems of the body.

Daoyin Shi Er Fa has a long history, dating back to the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD), and has been practiced for centuries by people of all ages and fitness levels in China and around the world. It is considered a fundamental qigong practice and is often used as a foundation for other qigong and martial arts practices.
