Tai Chi Union Health Committee

The Union health committee was formed to support the growing need for health & rehabilitation focused tai chi & chi-kung (qigong) within the wider community.

The Tai Chi Union for Great Britain is the Governing body in the UK and therefore the obvious choice to provide this support.

By forming this Network our aim is to provide support and evidence for the application of tai chi and chi-kung (qigong) in the areas of patient rehabilitation and well-being; areas include but are not limited to:

  • Falls prevention
  • Cardiac rehab (phase III & IV)
  • Cardiac failure (mild to moderate)
  • COPD (chronic obstructed pulmonary disease)
  • Pain management both chronic and acute
  • Stroke
  • MS (Multiple sclerosis)
  • Neuropathy
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Sarcopenia (muscle wastage)
  • Eating disorders
  • Mental health
  • Depression

There is a growing field of evidence that can be a minefield and our aim is to held. Join the message board discussions by clicking here.
