We are Tai Chi and Qigong professionals, Tai Chi and Qigong are part of Chinese Medicine and proven effective in treating neck problems including arthritis. Sue has been teaching Tai Chi and Qigong for over 15 years and has helped numerous students rehabilitate from arthritis, with specific Tai Chi movements and Qigong exercises that encourage the body’s healing capacity. When the student practices these movements a couple of times a day designed especially for arthritic areas, movement and flexibility return to areas that have been stiff and immobile for a long period of time.
The most common reasons causing neck stiffness and arthritis are:
- Incorrect posture, a lifetime of spinal misalignment means you need to change the body’s habitual holding and this can be achieved with Tai Chi and Qigong. Tai Chi movements and Qigong exercises regulate the body; slowly bring more circulation and Chi to blocked areas. In time, with practice mobility is gained and rehabilitation is possible.
- Working in an office environment can certainly negatively impact the neck, especially air conditioners or being positioned under an air-conditioning vent.
In Chinese medicine, pain equals blockage, when the circulation and meridians flow there is no pain. So how can you remove a blockage and reduce pain? Positive movement, at first, slow circular Tai Chi movements and then gently increasing the size of the circle followed by the same pattern but in the opposite direction ensures optimum blood flow, nourishing each joint. As you move your body, you understand further what you need and this type of practice is called self healing Chi massage.
All positive therapy contributes to rehabilitation, yet it is impossible to go to the Acupuncturist & Doctor countless times a day to receive treatment. And that is the empowering truth of applying these Tai Chi movements and Qigong exercises during your day, every day. You are moving positive Chi, you are administering and receiving self healing Chi massage that leads to rehabilitation, flexibility and mobilisation of joints.
