The Art Of Tai Chi

Tai Chi
Tai Chi originated in ancient China where it is considered a martial art. There is much more to Tai Chi than one can see, but basically, Tai Chi consists of slow, continuous whole-body movements, strung together in a form. Like a dance, the movements are learned and follow one after the other. The essential principles of Tai Chi include integrating the mind with the body, fluids movements, controlled breathing and mental concentration. The central focus is to enable the Qi (pronounced as Chee ) or life force, to flow smoothly and powerfully throughout the body. Total harmony of the inner and outer self comes from the integration of the mind and body. This is achieved by regular practice.

Tai Chi is highly recommended for people with osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, sleep disorders, stress, depression, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular conditions and weight disorders.

Tai Chi can be used in conjunction with other exercise routines. Tai Chi does not require any special equipment, making this practice very affordable. From physical therapy point of view, ta chi involves weight-shifting the body’s center of mass through the whole array of movements. It involves dynamic balance, proprioceptive awareness (knowing your body in space), muscle elongation and flexibility and isometric, concentric and eccentric contractions of different muscle groups.
