In addition to these two disciplines, Choy Lee Fut incorporates traditional medical practices such as accupuncture and massage. The medical system compliments the Kung Fu and Qigong systems with techniques for healing both oneself and others. The primary source of knowledge in these three disciplines comes from Choy Fook, who tought CLF founder Chan Heung the skills at Law Fou San.

Additionally, Choy Lee Fut incorporates a system of Feng Shui, which is designed to assist the development of balance and harmony in the external world, or macrocosm. The fifth area of study in the CLF system incorporates the tradition of Lion Dance practices and routines more here. These two areas of study were developed by Chan Heung based primarily on his experience and instruction from his uncles at Xin Hui and King Mui.

Underling all of these practices is the seventh aspect of Choy Lee Fut, which can be likened to to an ethical basis for all the other faculties and is summarized in a collection of ten codes of conduct.
