Tai Chi for Stress Reduction

T'ai Chi, a Chinese form of body movement, has developed over the centuries a very simple yet highly sophisticated method of influencing mental/emotional changes through body experiences.

T'ai Chi looks at the mind, emotions, and body as interconnected. The relationship between mind, emotions, and body is one of constant exchange of information and influence. So, we can say that in a sense mind, emotions, and body are one and the same. So, if we create a positive change in one of these components, all three of them will receive the information of that change. As a result all the three factors, viz., mind, emotions, and body will be affected and changes when we make a change in one of them. 

T'ai Chi, by a process of relaxing muscular tensions, improving posture, and a deepening of the breathing process, affects,  in a positive way, the stress levels of the mind and emotions.

T'ai Chi also places emphasis on the development of certain life-style principles. Of particular importance is the development of balance. It is understood that all tension and stress are expressions of imbalance. Therefore the cultivation of improved balance, as a mind/body experience, has a significant influence on reducing stress.
