Closing movment of qigong excercises

about the closing movement at the end qigong exercises

what is the point of this moment ?

sometimes i see people do it and sometimes they dont (for example i seen many shibashi videos they dont close after each excerise) - do you think they are needed ?

if i dont do them can that do harm in some way to energy etc or not do harm but just lower the benifits ?

also sometimes i see the ending movment done with one hand above the other and sometimes they close together - whats the right way or best way to do it ?

a video with example of closing movment after each type of excercise :

(any thing you want to add more about the subject of closing movement is welcomed)

The currant state of my knowledge regards Tai Chi and Qui Gong is limited.
Yet I know a lot about moving energies, and it good practice to circle the energies in the tan tien clockwise and then anticlockwise.
Once you are more confident in moving energies, you just might focus on the tan tien and the energy will gather at that point.

When you practice qigong, qi moves all over the place, and it's best to help it to settle again at the end of practice. Usually that involves the lower dantian. Since the natural route for qi to move is upward, starting from the root chakra, ending on the lower dantian makes complete sense. This helps you grow, stay rooted, and helps you avoid imbalances from letting qi flow without any guidance

and i do it by raising hands and lowering them again ? why the raise of hands first ?

also if it starts from root chakra why not settle the qi at the root chakra and not just the lower dentian ?

but more than anything would love to get the answer to why in the video below she does this closing movment after each movment excercise set and not at the end of the entire pracctice

cause when i watch the 18 forms shibashi videos on youtube they dont do a closing movement after each exercise yet she does it after every movement set

talking about this video :

Qigong works with ' Chi ' not chakras.
The 8 Brocade always close each movement and end of Form. Shibasi is not genuine Qigong, it's based on Tai Chi movements, it's a fairly new exercise. If you want the original 18 Tai Chi Qigong Form just google it but leave out the word Shibashi. You will see the original closes with the last movement and it is called ' Quieting the chi '

Because Qigong is for cultivating, balancing and strengthing Chi/Qi so you are closing each movement. 18th Form is using movements from Tai Chi which is a Martial Art and flows from one move to another without a pause.

Ohhh - so better to give up on 18 forms and do some other type of qigong instead ?

also you know why sometimes the closing is one hand over the other and sometimes she does them both on the same level ?
