Tai chi and qigong combine exercise and meditation into a single activity. As a moving meditation they integrate mind, energy and body into a single, yet multi-level exercise. Working to memorize the moves of the form allows your noisy mind to release the tension of everyday living. In the process, you learn techniques for relaxing and focusing, and toning the body. You develop a "practice" that is active, yet calming. Joining a group class is a nice way to meet like-minded people, too, for some social good-health.
Integrating healthcare strategies is smart, and tai chi and qigong are smart strategies for wellness activities.

Powerful tools for managing your health
TAI CHI AND QIGONG are complementary therapies along the “healthcare continuum.” More of us are finding answers from "integrated strategies" for treating illness and injury in the short term and, in the long term, cultivating preventative wellness practices in daily life.
Tai Chi and Qigong are wellness practices. Their effectiveness accumulates over time with proper practice. Whole populations can benefit greatly from integrating them into daily life.
