Regular practice of tai chi ch’uan can have profound effects on our neuro-biology, and it produces many health benefits. Through the centuries, the Chinese have utilized tai chi ch’uan as a healing art. We now have current medical research to confirm the power of tai chi as an optimal preventive as well as restorative healing technique.
Tai chi is the ancient art of moving meditation. Based on the integration of the principles of yin and yang, tai chi is practiced in a slow, sequential manner which develops the healing aspects of chi energy, slows the central nervous system, reduces stress, and improves focus.
