Health Benefits of Tai Chi/ Qigong

The health benefits of Tai Chi/Qigong is due to its anti-aging and stress-reduction effects together with healthy lifestyle, diet and herbs by the lengthening of telomeres as proven in clinical trials – lengthening the lives of cancer survivors and also preventing cancer and other chronic diseases.

For thousands of years, Tai Chi and Qigong, Classical Chinese medicine forms of Taoist yoga have been practiced in mainland China for the prevention and treatment of physical, emotional and psychological diseases. Tai Chi and Qigong are practiced worldwide in a variety of modern and traditional forms. In 2002, there were more than 2.5 million Tai Chi users and 500,000 Qigong users in the United States.

About Tai Chi and Qigong:

  • Both Tai Chi and Qigong involve sequences of flowing movements coupled with changes in mental focus, breathing, coordination, and relaxation.
  • There is significant overlap between the 2 practices in terms of movements and in the shared focus on breathing and mindfulness.
  • Both practices are low-impact, moderate-intensity aerobic exercises that are suitable for a diverse patient population with regards to gender, age, and health status.
  • Tai Chi and Qigong have been characterized as mind-body interventions and as “meditative movements.”
  • They are relatively safe, nonpharmacologic practices, which can be used for treatment and prevention of psychosomatic disorders, with few adverse events reported in the literature.

Physiologic Mechanism of Response

  • Tai Chi and Qigong have been shown to promote relaxation and decrease sympathetic output.
  • Relaxation interventions are known to reduce clinical somatic symptoms and to benefit anxiety, depression, blood pressure, and recovery from immune-mediated diseases.
  • Tai Chi and Qigong have been shown to improve immune function and vaccine-response, to increase blood levels of endorphins and baroreflex sensitivity,13 as well as to reduce levels of inflammatory markers (C-reactive protein [CRP]), adrenocorticotropic hormone, and cortisol.
  • Electroencephalography (EEG) studies of participants undergoing Tai Chi and Qigong exercise have found increased frontal EEG wave activity, suggesting increased relaxation and attentiveness.
  • These changes have not been present in exercise controls.

Research applications to mental health:

  • Stress management
  • Psychosocial well-being
  • Mood, anxiety, depression
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Substance abuse
  • Cognitive functioning
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Traumatic brain injury

There are natural alternative therapies that can assist people to deal with their health issues such as acupuncture, herbs, meditation and Qigong. As a registered acupuncturist, and Qigong teacher, I can vouch for their effectiveness in dealing with their physical, emotional, and psychological problems.

However, a more effective way to deal with their addiction and mental health is to love oneself identifying with their soul instead of their body by realizing the compassionate Higher Self (Soul) within themselves through the practices of Atma (Soul) Yoga.”

“This is similar to the effect of internal and external Qigong in the body’s storage of Source Qi in the lower dantian to cultivate the Three Treasures Jing, Qi and Shen for healing and enlightenment.”

– Excerpts from Negative Ion Therapy, page 108, The Cure & Cause of Cancer

“Telomeres are repeating DNA sequences located at the ends of chromosomes. With each cell division the telomeres become shorter. When the telomeres become too short, the cells stop dividing and cell death ensues. Telomeric length — shortening — is thus associated with senescence and the aging process as well as with cellular and whole-body mortality.

Oxidative stress — in the form of reactive oxygen species (ROS) — is well known to have deleterious consequences on telomeric length and therefore tissue function. Chronic oxidative stress, for example, compromises telomeric integrity and enhances the onset of senescence in human endothelial cells; this same factor accelerates telomeric loss and contributes to senescence in both human cellular and in whole-body systems.

Guolin New Qigong with healthy lifestyle, diet and herbs lengthen the telomeres and thus lengthen the lives of cancer survivors and also prevent cancer and other chronic diseases.”

“God is a creative principle and energy, not a personality. May God’s Force, Peace and Wisdom be with you, too.”

Immortality, the Ultimate Goal of Qigong


Ling Kong Jing in Zhan Zhuang Qigong

Tai Chi Chuan

The Chinese characters for Tai Chi Chuan can be translated as the ‘Supreme Ultimate Force’. The notion of ‘supreme ultimate’ is often associated with the Chinese concept of yin-yang, the notion that one can see a dynamic duality (male/female, active/passive, dark/light, forceful/yielding, etc.) in all things. ‘Force’ (or, more literally, ‘fist’) can be thought of here as the means or way of achieving this ying-yang, or ‘supreme-ultimate’ discipline.

People in China Practicing Tai Chi

Tai Chi, as it is practiced in the west today, can perhaps best be thought of as a moving form of yoga and meditation combined. There are a number of so- called forms (sometimes also called ‘sets’) which consist of a sequence of movements. Many of these movements are originally derived from the martial arts (and perhaps even more ancestrally than that, from the natural movements of animals and birds) although the way they are performed in Tai Chi is slowly, softly and gracefully with smooth and even transitions between them.

For many practitioners the focus in doing them is not, first and foremost, martial, but as a meditative exercise for the body. For others the combat aspects of Tai Chi are of considerable interest. In Chinese philosophy and medicine there exists the concept of ‘chi‘, a vital force that animates the body. One of the avowed aims of Tai Chi is to foster the circulation of this ‘chi‘ within the body, the belief being that by doing so the health and vitality of the person are enhanced. This ‘chi‘ circulates in patterns that are close related to the nervous and vascular system and thus the notion is closely connected with that of the practice of acupuncture and other oriental healing arts.

Another aim of Tai Chi is to foster a calm and tranquil mind, focused on the precise execution of these exercises. Learning to do them correctly provides a practical avenue for learning about such things as balance, alignment, fine-scale motor control, rhythm of movement, the genesis of movement from the body’s vital center, and so on. Thus the practice of Tai Chi can in some measure contribute to being able to better stand, walk, move, run, etc. in other spheres of life as well. Many practitioners notice benefits in terms of correcting poor postural, alignment or movement patterns which can contribute to tension or injury. Furthermore the meditative nature of the exercises is calming and relaxing in and of itself.

Because the Tai Chi movements have their origins in the martial arts, practicing them does have some martial applications. In a two-person exercise called ‘push-hands’ Tai Chi principles are developed in terms of being sensitive to and responsive of another person’s ‘chi’ or vital energy. It is also an opportunity to employ some of the martial aspects of Tai Chi in a kind of slow-tempo combat. Long-time practitioners of Tai Chi who are so-inclined can become very adept at martial arts. The emphasis in Tai Chi is on being able to channel potentially destructive energy (in the form of a kick or a punch) away from one in a manner that will dissipate the energy or send it in a direction where it is no longer a danger.

The practical exercises of Tai Chi are also situated in a wider philosophical context of Taoism. This is a reflective, mystical Chinese tradition first associated with the scholar and mystic Lao Tsu, an older contemporary of Confucius. He wrote and taught in the province of Hunan in the 6th century B.C. and authored the seminal work of Taoism, the Tao Te Ching. As a philosophy, Taoism has many elements but fundamentally it espouses a calm, reflective and mystic view of the world steeped in the beauty and tranquility of nature.

Tai Chi also has, particularly amongst eastern practitioners, a long connection with the I Ching a Chinese system of divination. There are associations between the 8 basic I Ching trigrams plus the five elements of Chinese alchemy (metal, wood, fire, water and earth) with the thirteen basic postures of Tai Chi created by Chang San-feng. There are also other associations with the full 64 trigrams of the I Ching and other movements in the Tai Chi form.
