Benefits of Tai-Chi and Chi-Kung
Tai-Chi and Chi- Kung are based on Traditional Chinese Medicine that focuses on the flow of energy around the body. The movements are gentle and easy to learn, and some can even be performed seated. Scientific research has found that Tai-Chi and Chi-Kung can help improve health: for example, a study published in the Arthritis Care & Research Journal in 2011 found that Tai-Chi helped to ease lower back pain.
As well as helping arthritis and joint pain, Tai-Chi and Chi-Kung can reduce blood pressure and improve breathing and joint mobility, not to mention using almost every muscle in the body in a gentle way. It promotes a wonderful feeling of peace and relaxation, which in turn reduces stress. It will improve your memory and concentration and give you a zest for life.
