Learn about pain relief through Taoist Tai Chi® arts when you visit the Niagara Health Expo on Sat., Oct. 19 at the Hotel Dieu Shaver in St. Catharines. Meet members of Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism at the Expo.
Practicing the Taoist Tai Chi® arts provided by the Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism develops a body that is strong, yet supple, balanced and energetic, a mind that is calm and clear, yet creative and dynamic, and a spirit that is light and peaceful, yet resilient.
Taoist Tai Chi® arts involve deep stretching with a full range of motion and continuous turning of the spine. They exercise the whole physiology including muscular, skeletal, and circulatory systems, as well as tendons, joints, connective tissue and organs. The gentle movements are balanced throughout the body and have a calming effect on the mind. Rather than depending on tension and the development of hard muscle, these arts develop a body that is relaxed and strong at the deepest level.
In addition, many practitioners have experienced pain relief through the Taoist arts. Pain can come in many forms, whether physical, mental or spiritual. Taoist Tai Chi® arts help people with chronic and serious problems, including arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, stroke and brain injury, risk of falling, asthma, osteoporosis, anxiety, depression, as well as the stresses of daily life.
