Health Benefits

Improved Circulation - Better Balance - Reduced Stress

The fast-paced yet sedentary nature of modern life often results in stress and lack of sufficient physical activity. Many thousands of individuals have found the movements of the Taoist Tai Chi™ internal art of health to be an effective way to counteract these pressures and to cultivate health. The significant degree of turning and stretching in each of the movements, combined with the adaptability of the form to suit individual needs, are just some of the factors that contribute to its focus on restoring, improving and maintaining health.

The health benefits include:improved circulation, balance and posture; increased strength and flexibility; and reduced stress. With regular practise, the Taoist Tai Chi™ internal art of health reaches deep inside the body to benefit the entire physiology including the tendons, joints, spine, connective tissue and internal organs. It restores the calmness and peace of mind that is often lost from our daily lives.

Although not a substitute for proper medical treatment, the tai chi chuan that we offer can help to alleviate and restore good health to people who suffer from conditions such as poor circulation, high blood pressure, arthritis, back pain, joint immobility, respiratory problems, skelatal problems, digestive disorders, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, fibromyalgia and many others.
