Health Improvement through Taoist Tai Chi™ Internal Arts
A key objective of the International Taoist Tai Chi Society is to promote the health improving qualities of the internal arts, such as Tai Chi. The internal arts of health incorporate stretching and turning into a sequence of movements that improve the health of body, mind, and spirit. They reduce tension, improve circulation and balance, and increase strength and flexibility. Over time, these internal arts reach deep inside the body to benefit its entire physiology and restore the calmness and peace of mind often lost through the excessive desires and anxieties of daily life.
Improving the Health of SeniorsPeople of all ages can learn and benefit from the gentle turning and stretching movements of the Taoist Tai Chi™ internal arts of health, and the art can be adapted to match any level of ability. Special classes are offered for seniors in most branches of the society.
Many USA branches offer health recovery classes. These specialized classes
enable people with chronic illnesses or who are recovering from injuries
to incorporate the Taoist
Tai Chi Society® internal arts of health into
their recovery as a complementary therapy. The International Taoist Tai Chi
Society also has a Health
Recovery Center in Orangeville, just north of Toronto, Canada, where
people with specific health concerns can spend time in a tranquil environment
practicing the Taoist
Tai Chi™ internal arts of health as a way to
regain or maintain their well-being.
