Regular Tai Chi practice can help people of all ages and abilities to heal their body through slow motions and breath. Breathing and movement help to clear stagnation in the body. Stagnation in Chinese Medicine, is any kind of blood statis (bruising, varicose veins), qi stasis (muscular and joint pains, sluggish digestion, etc.), and anything that basically is stuck physically and even emotionally.
Acupuncture works in a similar fashion. Depending on your symptoms, specific points on various locations of the body are chosen to improve circulation to sluggish, deficient, or injured areas of the body to relieve pain/stagnation and stimulate healing.
Tai Chi is a wonderful way to build new energy in the body, and acupuncture is a great way to help circulate it to areas that need it most!
