The Covid-19 pandemic is a health care crisis and attention has been focused on physical disease and the greater risk to older adults and those with chronic conditions. Let’s now turn attention to prevention. Self-Care is Health Care. Enhance your life with Qigong and Tai Chi self-care practices: evidence-based, easy to learn, and fun! Health benefits: stress relief, balance, heart health, immune boost, mental focus, and more.
One easy to learn and highly effective method is Tai Chi Easy™. The Tai Chi Easy combines elements of classic Tai Chi form and simple Qigong, which includes focusing on the four Essential Qi (energy) cultivation techniques highlighted in the book, “The Healer Within,” by Dr. Roger Jahnke, OMD. They are breath, massage, gentle movement, and meditation. Learn how easy it is to practice Tai Chi Easy and activate the Healer Within: simply align the body, take a deep breath, and clear the mind. Add gentle movement or self-massage while in this restful state. Meditate for just a minute or more, slipping in and out of the clear mental state. Choose what works and feels best for YOU. You are empowered! Self-care practices are something you can do NOW to improve your health and wellness.
