Stress is said to be part and parcel of life. Every day we
are confronted with pressure on all fronts, namely jobs, financial,
political, relationships and various other sources.
When depending on anti stress medication, it can result in
other dependencies, which in the end will only increase stress
levels and affect health.
But there are other ways of fighting stress and its effects,
ways that will serve to improve health and quality of life,
rather than place it at risk.
One of these stress fighters is the Chinese art of Tai Chi,
an ancient system of exercises that concentrates on the development
and strengthens the body's internal vital organs. It incorporates
the use of meditation, breathing exercises and chi (vital
Tai Chi uses every part of the body and incorporates slow,
fluid movements with rhythmic breathing patterns, based on
the principle of "Pain is no gain". Tai Chi is practiced
by millions of people all around the world and can be practiced
practically everywhere: in gardens, parks, rooftops, beach
or just about any relatively quiet location.
Tai Chi originated in ancient China, as a Martial Art and
self defense. To master Tai Chi as an art of fighting one
needs at least ten years of intensive full time training.
However, it is mostly used today for healing, strengthening
the body's immune system, rejuvenating vital organs, reversing
the aging process, combating stress, tension and relieving
the pressures of everyday life. The art is designed to give
coordination, general balance, including balance of the left
and right sides of the brain, control of respiratory nervousness
in the body, just to mention a few. Lung capacity is increased
and digestion improved, while muscles are strengthened and
limbs become stronger and more flexible. Tai Chi is beneficial
for everyone regardless of age, fitness level or lifestyle.
As long as one can breathe, one can perform the exercises.
Tai Chi is not an instant cure for any illness or disability,
but it can contribute to improving one's state of health.
It is not only designed to treat the physical exterior of
the body, but will put the body into harmony with nature.
Tai Chi can significantly cut the risk of falls among older
people who benefit in maintaining balance and strength. Studies
at the Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Ga.,
found that older people taking part in a 15-week Tai Chi program
reduced their risk of falling by 47.5 percent.
