Taijiquan and Qigong

Taijiquan (also known as Tai Chi Chuan) and Qigong (Chi Kung) are traditional Chinese practices that are well known for their health benefits.  Categorized as "internal arts" these practices are renowned for helping to regulate circulation, improve strength, and increase flexibility.  Recent medical research has also found evidence that Taijiquan and Qigong are effective for improving balance and as an adjunctive therapy to conditions such as fibromyalgia.

How does Taijiquan and Qigong Help?

Through the regular practice of Taiji and Qigong, a practitioner is able to develop better body awareness: the ability to perceive and control the body.  Through developing this awareness, the practitioner gains the ability to voluntarily relax muscles and regulate the circulatory and cardiovascular systems.  An athlete, for example, would be able to consciously calm their nerves just before a big competition.  The ability to consciously relax a muscle after an acute injury can help mitigate any damage or tension that arises after that injury!
