Tai Chi Program at Kansas University Hospital's Turning Point Shows Dramatic Results 2

 

Dear World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters,

 

Are you a Tai Chi or Qigong student, or teacher? If so, you or your teacher can be part of a global healthcare revolution occurring in hospitals and healthcare institutions. See video for how this is happening already at the Kansas University Hospital's Turning Point Center for Hope & Healing, to get ideas about how to approach your local health institutions. See above video.

 

Emerging medical research shows that Tai Chi increases brain size, and other research shows meditation increases the empathy / compassion parts of the brain. As we practice mind-body arts we become more hard wired for compassion and empathy, so if you do Tai Chi and Qigong regularly, you will probably love this issue's "A Global Vision - One World ... One Breath," article below. 

 

WorldTaiChiDay.org is a wealth of free resources for curious or newbies to Tai Chi & Qigong, for master practitioners, teachers, and organizations worldwide working to expand awareness of these mind-body, health, and social evolutionary arts.

 

You can be part of a worldwide effort to educate the planet about Tai Chi and Qigong by forwarding our articles, links or newsletters to those you love and via your social networking contacts.

 

You can also join in the global annual celebration of public Tai Chi and Qigong exhibitions and teach-ins each year, that is proclaimed on the last Saturday of April each year by governments worldwide as "World Tai Chi & Qigong Day." At WorldTaiChiDay.org you can find local events/teachers, or teachers and schools organizing events can list your contact info for free in our "Events/Classes" directory.

 

We hope you enjoy our free resources.

 

Yours in Qi,

 

Bill Douglas & Angela Wong Douglas,
Founders of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

A Global Vision -
One World ... One Breath!
  
Can mind-body practices health our planet?
You might be surprised ...
  
Earth Blue Glow  
  
                                                                   
Mind-body masters have long said that you heal the planet by healing yourself.
  
This may have sounded a bit narcissistic and pie-in-the-sky thinking ... until now.
  
The United States alone spends upward of $4 trillion, that's $4 TRILLION per year on healthcare.
  
A 20 year study by Kaiser Permanente found that over 70% of all illness sending people to their doctors were caused by stress, and when we at WorldTaiChiDay.org contacted Dr. David Sobel at Kaiser to confirm this figure, he told us that depending on how you looked at those numbers, that figure could go as high as 85% of illness being, not aggravated by stress, but CAUSED by it.
  
Tai Chi and Qigong are being proven in medical studies to be perhaps the most powerful stress management therapies available when taught as meditative practices.
  
We are looking at TRILLIONS of dollars in possible health savings every year, year after year after year.
  
The United Nations estimates that it would take around $30 billion per year to end the global food crisis. 30 billion is only a tiny slice of the trillions Tai Chi and Qigong could save in global health costs, if provided widely throughout society worldwide.
  
Think of this. Tai Chi and Qigong could END WORLD HUNGER.
  
Those mind-body master's ideas don't sound so airy-fairy all of a sudden, they sound like very practical advice for the world.
  
When we practice our Tai Chi and Qigong meditations, and tell others about these health practices, we may be part of a wave of change that will one day end world hunger.
  
TELL EVERYONE ABOUT TAI CHI AND QIGONG!
  
You can use our WorldTaiChiDay.org Tai Chi Medical Research Library to find articles on breaking medical research and use it to forward to friends and contacts in social media. You can use it to write grant proposals for public Tai Chi or Qigong programs. You can use it to write letters to the editor in newspapers or magazines to inform the public of medical research.
  
Just a sampling is recent medical research showing that Tai Chi can increase brain size; treat Parkinson's disease; treat COPD; treat Heart Disease; and much more.
  
Visit our Tai Chi Medical Research Library, and bookmark or favorite place it for future reference.
  
Or you can always find a link to our Medical Research Library at our homepage: www.WorldTaiChiDay.org or www.WorldQigongDay.org.
  









 
  
  
How Tai Chi and Qigong Related to Traditional Chinese Medicine's Acupuncture Meridian Systems ...
  
Medical Tai Chi
                                                                   
Energy meridians, or jing luo, link all the organs and the entire physical body to the mind and emotional systems. This explains how Tai Chi and QiGong's mind/body exercises integrate all aspects of the self into a powerful self-healing system.

What are these energy meridians that T'ai Chi and Qigong help to unblock?

The Vertical Axis - Tai Chi & QG Posture
  
Vertical Axis in Motion
Vertical Axis in Motion

   

The Vertical Axis and You

Many lower back injuries are caused by poor performance posture. Tai Chi will encourage you to maintain good posture and will remind you when you get sloppy. Proper posture is found in aligning the three dan tien points over the soles of the feet, with the weight slightly more to the heels than the front.

Tai Chi, Qigong & the Zangfu Organ Systems

 

Another profound benefit Tai Chi and Qigong provide is a
gentle massaging of the internal organs. Because Tai Chi
moves the body in about 95 percent of the possible
motions it can go through, it not only clears the
joints of calcium deposits, but it also gently
massages the internal organs.
 

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM),
this is a powerful therapy for optimum health.

TCM recognizes that the body is an integrated

The Horse Stance and Dan Tien
 

The dan tien is the basis of the Horse Stance.

 

The Horse Stance is the basic stance for all martial arts, including Tai Chi.

 

It aligns the three dan tien points, upper, middle, and lower (see video in column to right), to give you the best posture and most effortless, yet powerful, movement.
