T'ai Chi

This Chinese movement therapy was reputedly practised by Taoist monks in the 13th Century. A dynamic form of Qi Gong, T'ai Chi is a non-combative form of martial art - it uses breathing techniques and sequences ("forms") of slow, graceful movements to improve the flow of Qi, (the "life force"), calm the mind and promote self-healing. T'ai Chi can be described as "meditation in motion" and practitioners claim it is more a preventative good health discipline rather than a cure for any particular ailment.

Research shows that it helps to relax the muscles and nervous system and is good for posture, balance and flexibility. It also helps to develop internal harmony and presence. It is especially good for maintaining the health of the elderly.

In China it is practised by millions of people daily.

T'ai Chi is especially useful in treating the following health conditions:
asthma, anxiety, arthritis, back pain, circulation problems, depression, dysmenorrhoea, endometriosis, high and low blood pressure, insomnia, menopause, menorrhagia, muscular tension, PMS, stress.
