TAI CHI & QI GONG
Tai Chi and Qi Gong are ancient forms of Chinese Martial Art which use a series of gentle, graceful movements.
Traditionally used as healing modalities, they are now also used as an effective way to relieve stress, balance the body and mind as well as an effective way to keep fit.
TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) encompasses many holistic modalities of healing such as Acupuncture (the insertion of fine needles), Tui-Na massage and Moxibustion (burning of the Chinese herb – Artemisia Vulgaris).
These modalities are used to treat the cause of a wide variety of conditions naturally targeting the body as a whole.
ANTENATAL TAI CHI & QI GONG
During pregnancy women are presented with a variety of changes in the body, emotions and mental state.
Coping with this stress and strain becomes increasingly difficult to lead a balanced “normal” life.
Through the practice of Tai Chi and Qi Gong one can maintain a wonderful state of balance and calm. Cultivating energy in the body will enable the connection with one’s unborn child and ensure a trouble free pregnancy.
