Tai Chi Chuan / Tijiquan
Tai Chi is well known for its ability to improve or even cure many illnesses, notably problems of the stomach, lungs, heart, kidneys, high blood pressure, arthritis, and many others. Once you understand the principles of Tai Chi and begin training you will understand how this happens.
Tai Chi Chuan can relax the body, calm the mind, and provide a better understanding of life and nature.
Tai Chi Chuan was developed from Martial Arts, but the main reason for the popularity of Tai Chi Chuan is not its martial potential, but rather its ability to improve health. Tai Chi Chuan enables the practitioner to reach a higher level of body relaxation, calmness, and peace of mind. Most importantly, Tai Chi Chuan improves the internal QI circulation, which is the key to maintaining health and curing many illnesses.
