They are based on the idea that everybody, no matter what age, can improve their health and wellbeing by practicing some simple but effective postures, and the movements to achieve those postures.
Below is a quote from Sifu Peter Newton, China Bridge founder and senior instructor. We hope it gives you a greater understanding in what Ian and Jan aim to provide.
Medical Tai Chi and Qigong
"Medical Tai Chi and Qigong is the more focused and therapeutic interpretation of what has generally been described as the health science of the sister arts. This idea although relatively new to the western world has been practiced and promoted in China for thousands of years, but was always the least known aspect of traditional Tai Chi and Qigong training. Historically to see the purer methods in practice you would have to visit the traditional medicine hospitals in China, who adopted it as part of their holistic approach to natural healing and treatment. Here in the western world however only now with the opening of the technological highways are we able to appreciate the revelation of this unique and effective support to healing."
Why medical Tai Chi and Qigong?
The term "medi" means middle and therefore it is very appropriate to link this word to what Tai Chi and Qigong in fact do. They can be described as :- "The processes involved in assisting a person to find the middle path of Spirit, Mind and Body".
