Tai Chi, Gi Gung, other martial arts, and yoga are some of the best known of the healing movement arts anyone can incorporate into their daily routines for better health. These often very gentle exercises can stimulate blood flow to stagnant areas of the body and stimulate the lymphatic and immune systems to cleanse and heal the body.
Simply sweating is a terrifically healthy thing for you to do, cleansing your skin and with it your whole body of a number of toxins. However, these moving arts promise additional benefits beyond mere exercise. Gi Gung, Tai Chi, Bagwa, and similar martial arts styles claim to generate and move energy throughout the body -- chi -- and centuries of practitioners have given evidence to support those health claims.
Natural Cures: The healing arts of movement can be terrific for general flexibility, to heal joint and muscle damage and pain, for arthritis, to boost the immune system, and to improve blood flow to the brain and throughout the body. Even the sick and very elderly can find forms of Tai Chi or Gi Gung that they can practice on a daily basis for improved health.
Hi There, I think i may have contacted you before with a similar question but, anyways, here it is again. By the way, I love the site and recommend it to many clients - I am an acupuncturist and do Cranialsacral therapy as well as run Tai Chi and Qi Gong classes. I was suprised to not be able to find these arts as remedies as they are amazing for so many reasons...it may be that your site is more due to the emphasis on herbals and simple single substance remedies. Whatever the case, maybe you would consider putting it under your remedies section. I am confident as a martial artist of 15 years, that it can change a person's life!
Great site!! Love it and I check in frequently
EC: Agree, agree, agree! Thanks for the suggestion!
