Frequently Asked Questions [FAQ]



1. Practising Taichi can be effective against pneumonia?

Sure can!  The following research result provides scientific evidence:

In 2018, a well-known respiratory disease expert in China Professor Zhong Nanshan led a team of experts to release the latest clinical study of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: practising Tai Chi is equivalent to traditional convalescent exercise for pulmonary diseases.  Taichi often has a crouching posture which exercises the muscles of the lower limbs and improves breathing, so it can effectively alleviate the shortness of breath.

      4. Does Taichi prevent brain degeneration?

      Absolutely!  It is because:

      • Movements in most sports are simple, symmetrical and repetitive. Wudang Taichi requires high level of flexibility and coordination

      • The movements are slow but highly balanced, require a lot of mental activities for controlling various muscles.  As a result, increase blood circulation in the brain so that the onset of brain degeneration will be delayed

      • When practising Wudang Taichi, your body and mind need to be totally relaxed while focusing on the continuous gentle movements. That will bring tranquility to the mind and stimulates the body to secrete a variety of hormones that are essential to activate brain cells in order to achieve the effect of prolonging life.
