  • Chi Kung for the weak immune system

    Dear All,

    I'd like to recommend a friend of mine to take up Chi Kung as taught in SW.

    He's been struggling with severe eczema and his immune system is very weak. He has already tried several different treatments for eczema (currently the light therapy), and even if I'm not sure if Chi Kung by itself will heal his eczema, I have confidence that it'll strengthen his immune system.

    The question is: how likely it is that after practicing Chi flows there may be initial worsening of symptoms? I appreciate that it's impossible to tell what exactly is going to happen, but I was hoping that perhaps some general prediction could be made based on your case studies

    With appreciation.

    Jacek.

    Skin irritation is quite common in the first days of Chi Kung practice. This is not necessarily the same as an initial worsening. In most cases, these symptoms disappear within a few days.

      Tai Chi Chuan (Taijiquan) is an ancient Chinese "internal" or "soft" martial art often practised for its health-giving and spiritual benefits; it is non-competitive, gentle, and generally slow-paced. Contrary to the Western concept of "no pain, no gain," one hour of tai chi actually burns more calories than surfing and nearly as many as downhill skiing, so it's definitely a veritable workout. But that's just one of the many benefits! By increasing strength, flexibility, body awareness and mental concentration, tai chi can improve your health, too.

      Tai Chi brings in more benefits and enjoyment than most other exercises. It is an ancient art with great depth, yet requiring no special equipment. Tai Chi is often described as "meditation in motion," but it might well be called "medication in motion."People of any age or physical condition can gain better health, enjoyment and progression to higher level. It is even fun and can be practiced alone or in a group. What’s more importantly, tai chi helps you to like yourself more, which, in turn, leads not only to better health, but also harmony within yourself and with others.

      Taichi is a form of self-healing in Chinese medicine. For millennia tai chi hasexisted as a sophisticated form of movement therapy that has helped hundreds ofmillions of people live longer, reduceand even reverse the effects of aging, maintain their energy levels well intoold age and feel good.

      When practiced for health and fitness, the slow-motion movements of tai chi provide threebasic benefits:
      • Tai chi improves physical movement.
      • Tai chi calms and releases stress from the nerves and mind.
      • Tai chi develops chi, or life-force energy.

      Practicing 15-30 minutes a day can have dramatic health benefits.

      And, tai chi’s gentle,low-impact movements don’t generate the potentially damaging shock, trauma andinjuries often associated with high-impact exercise/sports. So tai chi can bepracticed by virtually anyone—regardless of their age or current state ofhealth. Tai Chi for Health


      When Tai Chi is practised, the movement creates streams of energy to flow through the body.

      In the philosophy of Tai Chi, it is said Chi (life energy) follows the mind, each posture and movement creates a different energy flow that, has a benifital overall affect on overall well-being.

      Tai Chi stimulates circulation, aligns the skeleton and joints correctly, stimulates the organs of the body and helps digestion.

      It increases muscle tone, strength, improves balance and co ordination and improves breathing.

      Tai Chi does not just provide physical benefits; by raising energy levels, it also affects the mind and the spirit.

      Tai Chi focuses thought, so that mind and body energy works together as one. When practising Tai Chi, people find that they are not just physically fitter but, happier, more alert, have greater mental focus and are more creative.

        Advertising training with real Shaolin Monks here is actually quite funny. If you read our forum pages and our school's webpages rather than just post your advertising, you will see that we KNOW that NO REAL Shaolin Monks exist in China any more. They haven't for decades!
