TAI CHI

Tai chi (the name means Supreme Ultimate Fist) is both the crown jewel of the Chinese martial arts and a powerful healing system practiced the world over by people of all ages. Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (as is acupuncture, which is increasingly popular and well-studied) tai chi enhances the quality and quantity of energy flowing through the body. Recent medical research (the library of the National Institutes of Health currently lists more than 400 studies) confirms that tai chi practice can:

  • Lower stress levels
  • Save us from morbid falls
  • Boost our immune system
  • Improve cardiovascular health and fitness
  • Aid in managing a wide range of ills

There is even evidence that tai chi boosts grows the brain and alters our DNA!

A Taoist art, tai chi also offers the opportunity for spiritual growth. Taoism is best known in America thanks to the Star Wars movies, where the Tao is known as “the force” and Jedi knights are tai chi masters in disguise. Tai chi quiets the mind, introduces balance and harmony into thought and action, and deepens our experience of living. Many practitioners also find it a wonderful method of artistic self-expression.

Arthur Rosenfeld also offers a fantastic  Tai Chi Training DVD.
