Then, lick the upper palate with the tongue, or rest the tongue on the maxillodental outside. Next, move the tongue upwards and downwards first.

This method was termed as "The Red Dragon Stirring the Sea" by the ancients. Wait until there is a mouthful of saliva and swallow it in three divided times. Meanwhile, send the saliva down to Dantian with the mindwill. Or the method may be cooperated with tapping the teeth. Namely, first, tap the teeth; then, swallow the refluxed saliva.
