Tai Chi, Qigong, Reiki, and Meditation


 

Tai Chi has long been used by the Chinese peoples to promote a calm heart in the busy day to day. This form of Qigong has found a special home with seniors, women enjoying pregnancy and children of all ages. Used even by the Mayo Clinic as a reference for stress reduction, Tai chi is a gentle way to begin exercising. Both Dr. Chen and Dr. Tang are practicioners of these arts for many years. The breathing techniques of Tai Chi have been found to lower Blood Pressure and decrease the rate of heart disease. The slow movement allows the body to develop a strong physical homeostasis which envelopes all facets of life.

Qigong is the medicine of movement in Chinese culture. A practitioner of Qigong can prescribe specialized movements in conjunction with a medical diagnosis, again focusing on the body, mind, spirit connection. The focus of Qigong healing has been successful in treating arthritis, hypertension, stress related illnesses and chronic as well as acute pain.


 

An alternate form of healing modality is Reiki, an adaption of the Japanese culture to the principles of energy transformation and power in the human body. It is very similar to the Qigong and Tai Chi practices. Within a treatment, Reiki can be used to restore balance and harmony to the whole body.

Finally, Meditation skills can be developed and improved until one has a practice that will be the foothold of peace in a complicated world. Much has been said about the actions of Meditation such as improving strength, logic, memory, health and life in general. As knowledgeable guides Dr. Chen and Dr. Tang will bring these qualities to the forefront, enhancing each quiet interlude.


 

Qigong is widely understood in China but little known in the West. It is a gentle practice which is based on the principles of energy flow throughout the body. It integrates physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused intentions and can be used by people of all ages and health to reduce stress, increase vitality and enhance the immune system. It has also been found to improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic and digestive functions. Medical Qigong is a modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Like its better known counterparts, acupuncture and herbal medicine, medical Qigong requires thorough knowledge of TCM scientific theory in order to be used skillfully. A medical qi gong practitioner should be at least as well-trained as an acupuncturist or herbalist.

Reiki healing is a Japanese technique transformed from Chinese Qigong, for promoting health and relaxation, and for reducing stress. It is administered by "laying on hands" just like Qigong and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. It is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement.


 

Meditation is an important part of all these practices. The practice of meditation can take on many forms, and can be done by anyone, whether staying still or moving. It is often used to clear the mind and ease many health issues, such as high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety. Meditation is found in various forms in almost all cultures and belief systems, and will prove itself a useful tool for health.

Acne is a disorder of the skin’s sebaceous glands that results in plugged pores and lesions, which present with blackheads, whiteheads, inflamed papules, pustules, cysts and nodules. Acne occurs on the face, as well as the neck, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms. Although most teenagers get some form of acne, adults in their 20's, 30's, 40's, or even older, can develop acne. Acne is not a serious health threat, but it can be disfiguring and upsetting to the patient. It may leave permanent scars. Nearly 17 million people in the USA have acne, and it is one of the most common skin diseases in the USA..
