What is Tai Chi & Qigong? Tai Chi and Qigong (Chi Kung) are health technologies that have evolved over several thousand years of research in China and now growing in popularity worldwide. They are used in hospitals, business, prisons, schools, and other institutions. Research has shown that Tai Chi and Qigong reduce anxiety, depression, and chronic pain conditions. They boost the immune system, improve respiratory function, burn calories, dramatically improve balance, provide cardiovascular benefit, provide powerful stress management tools, and slow aspects of the aging process.
