Randomized, controlled studies show China's slow exercise routines of Tai Chi and Qigong benefit the entire body.

Why Tai Chi

The Chinese have found something that flows through the human body and it is called "chi." In English it roughly translates as "vital energy" or "energy force (sometimes referred to as life force)." This chi flows through a certain path throughout the body that is referred to as meridians. Regular practice of Tai Chi helps open up these meridians so that chi can flow freely throughout the body. The benefits of regular practice of Tai Chi are:

  • Brain Function - It improves cognitive function in older adults
  • Overall Well-Being - The integration of mind and body improves the flow of Qi, the energy force coursing through the body, improving the life markers in healthy and chronically ill people
  • Muscle Strength - The slow continuous movements improve overall body muscle strength
  • Enhances Immune - It improves immune function, reduces inflammation and boosts the lymphatic system, which may increase protection against colds, flu or autoimmune diseases
  • Stronger Bones - It increases bone density which may help prevent fractures in elderly adults
  • Improves Balance - Regular practice will improve balance and help prevent falls in elderly adults
  • Lessen Joint Pain - The slow, graceful exercises offer joint and arthritis relief
  • Cardiovascular - These low-impact, relaxing exercises are beneficial for heart health. They significantly lower blood pressure as well as reducing the resting heart rate
  • Flexibility - Boost upper and lower body flexibility and strength while improving balance and coordination with a heightened sense of proprioception
  • Mood - Combat stress and anxiety by replacing anxiety -inducing thoughts with focus attention and introspection. Stress is known to cause sleep problems. Through the practice of Tai Chi and Qigong you will reduce stress which will improve sleep. Better quality sleep is known to improve mood.

Today, many people are practicing Tai Chi and Qigong. It is the number one recommendation from doctors and chiropractors as one of the better ways to improve your energy, balance, muscle tone and health in general. Start feeling better through controlled breathing and movements that promote a tranquil mental state.

Now is the time to start living better through the practice of Tai Chi and Qigong. It's important to keep moving mentally, physically, and intellectually.

A longer life maybe...a better life absolutely! Tai chi training may very well increase your longevity, but the real value lies in the increased wellness and enjoyment of life right now. None of us know whether we'll be here tomorrow, so the important question is, "What are you doing for yourself right now?"
