Tai-Chi and Qi-Gong

Since ancient times, the Chinese have attributed all life force to the constant balance of the positive and negative sides of energy.  These are called Yin (-) and Yang (+) and symbolize life and death, day and night, male and female.  Yin and Yang are embodied in the Chinese symbol for Tai-Chi.

An ancient Chinese philosophy, Tai-Chi may be loosely defined at the infinite universe or the origin of life.  Its main tenet is that to achieve harmony and order in the universe and within the body. Yin and Yang should be constantly in balance.  The Chinese say that when this balance is disturbed in any way, chaos and disharmony abound.

Tai-Chi Cheung and Qi-Gong are two of many Chinese mental and physical disciplines used to preserve health and combat illness.

Tai-Chi Cheung is a healing exercise based on martial arts fighting techniques but practiced with slow movements, correct breathing, and mental concentration.  Tai-Chi can preserve health and youth, as well as increase and build internal energy.  The Chinese have practiced this formula for keeping youth and longevity for hundreds of years.

Qi-Gong means energy work or energy exercise.  Qi-Gong is the oldest healing exercise and has been practiced in China for thousands of years.  Practiced in the same manner as Tai-Chi Cheung, it is comprised of many different short series of exercises and movements.  The Chinese regard Qi-Gong as a means of fighting disease and illness, as well as promoting general health.  Qi-Gong is easy to learn and practice, and the benefits easy to achieve.  Tai-Chi, on the other hand, may take a little longer to perfect and to feel the results.
