Tai Chi for pain relief Part 1

Tired of the constant pain in your body?

” Do you wake up with your back aching, knee pain, muscle and joint pain?
Do you constantly rely on painkillers or ibuprofen and other NSAIDs for relief? Are you worried about the effect it has on your kidney and liver but you just cannot get through the day without somehow minimizing the pain? This is the story of so many of us; the young, the old, the active and the inactive of us. So what can we do? There is an answer that works for many of us but it takes some initial effort on our part.
For centuries Tai Chi has been promoted as a means for longevity and health. What most seem to ignore about Tai Chi is that it creates a natural elixir to relieve pain. Sure exercise helps relieve pain,- but that is not really all that Tai Chi is. It is different and maybe I can explain some simple differences.
It’s called internal energy “chi”.  The purposeful use of moving energy throughout the body in a painstakingly slow manner has miraculous effects. Maybe the word is not miraculous but what would you call it? If I wake up after a night of pain and can barely walk, with every step actuating the agony throughout my muscles and joints and then I do something very slowly called Tai Chi and thereafter, I have no pain and feel able to live the day without those NSAIDs and pain killers what would you call it?”

[Tweet “If your dedicated it will take about a year to perfect the beginning use of the chi. I told you it would not be easy! But once learned it is simple and requires only dedication and consistency. Please note there are many styles of Tai Chi. I prefer the Wu style and the 108 moves of its long form. I prefer it because its emphasis is on energy development and small movement.” ]
