    Default Chi sau, Chi gong and random healing

    I've meant to bring this up for a while.

    I've only somewhat recently become aware of chi gong and its health benefits. It reminded me of when I used to train (wing chun): we had an exercise called chi sao. It is an exercise to develop sensitivity in ones arms as well as a few other things more so combat related. You start out with one hand (don chi sao) then advance to using both hands (shaun chi sao).

    When I was training I had these embarrassing cluster of warts on the joint of my thumb. I had them treated by a dermatologist but they came back. I tried the home treatment as well (more or less same as dermatologist method, freezing) but they'd come back. It was gross.

    As soon as I began training shaun chi sao the warts went away, all of them, instantly. Like flicking a switch. They never came back till about 10 years later but not as bad, and the home freeze treatment got rid of them this time.

    So here's my question: did the chi sao exercises have some random healing effect the same way chi gong does? I'd like to learn more about this if someone can point me in a direction.

    I'm skeptical of this, I do believe in coincidences, but my mind is open.

    There are so many variables here.
    Freezing has never worked in my experience as it does not get to the root, so they grow back. If you catch the wart just when it is starting to appear, then maybe freezing would work, but once rooted, you need other measures.
    Warts are caused by viruses so clearly your immune system is at work and that is affected by a gazillion things, like your environment, the foods you consume, etc.

    ALL martial arts emphasize breathing which absolutely affects your immune system and health. So no surprise there.

    Eastern martial art techniques stress the use of Qi (or Ki in Japanese and Korean) energy but I don't want to go there.
    I use qi-gong as a healing modality and not as a fighting technique.
    (Some) qi-gong masters can make humans and animals immobile. But abuse of such energy is conducive to bad karma.

    It takes breathing exercises and meditation to strengthen the qi
