Tai Chi Chuan is a health/exercise discipline, which is a restorative, an illness preventive, and a health promoting system for the body and the mind. Traditionally taught as a Martial Art, it is now more commonly taught as a ‘Martial Health’ system.
There is an extensive past history of Tai Chi Chuan that one can explore on many websites listed in our links section. For the potential practitioner to know the present and the future of Tai Chi Chuan we have briefly noted some of the current research so that you may understand the power of the practice and that businesses may consider instituting programs for staff which will promote a healthy lifestyle. Many leading companies have understood that providing exercise opportunities, and incentives to exercise, lowers health costs, and promotes many positives in the workplace.
Leading edge conceptualizers looking for opportunities to motivate people in their companies towards healthy lifestyles may be interested in having Tai Chi or Chi Kung introduced during staff retreats. A morning session of Chi Kung and introductory Tai Chi to set up for a day of staff retreat to focus will bring greater relaxation combined with focus to your creative process. We are here to offer you services in that capacity as we have for several staff retreats at Queen of the Valley Hospital in Napa, and other places.
