Tai Ch'i


      Tai ch'i is one of the many branches of the Chinese healing arts called as a group qi gong (ch'i kung). Tai ch'i consists of over a hundred separate movements practiced in a specific order. There are several styles, or "forms", of tai ch'i, most of which include a "short form" of twenty to forty movements which is ideal for beginners, the elderly, or those who are ill. The slow, meditative movements of tai ch'i improve transport of oxygen and nutrition from the blood to the tissues and aid the lymph system to eliminate waste, promoting healing and a feeling of well-being.
