CHEO February Meeting: Tai Ji And Qi Gong

Friday, February 6, 2015

ChiaHung Shen will be sharing Tai Ji Quan, Qi Gong exercises and some lifestyle suggestions at the CHEO February meeting on Sunday, Feb. 15, 2-4 p.m. at Nutrition World, downstairs in speaker/yoga room.  .

ChiaHung Shen received alternative healing art trainings in Chinese Acupressure, Reflexology, Tai Ji Quan (or Tai Chi Quan), Qigong, and some basic Chinese Medicine. He is now teaching free Tai Ji Quan and Qi Gong classes at the Public Libraries and the Civic Center in the Chattanooga area. 

"Tai Ji Quan offers an opportunity to explore the harmony within all movement, leading to deepened sensitivity, the development of internal energy and the ability to deal with external forces. Taiji is based upon relaxation of body and mind. The quiet and gentle nature of the exercise overcomes stress and its related illnesses. Other benefits include improved blood circulation, better posture and alignment, and a strengthened immune system. All contributing to greater quality of life and likely quantity; it is equally suitable for young and old, men and women.

"Qi Gong involves an integration of physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused intentions. Some practices increase the Qi; others circulate it, use it to cleanse and heal the body, store it, or emit Qi to help heal others. The slow gentle movements of most Qigong forms can be easily adapted, even for the physically challenged and can be practiced by all age groups.  Like any other system of health care, Qigong is not a panacea, but it is certainly a highly effective health care practice. Many health care professionals recommend Qigong as an important form of alternative complementary medicine," organizers said.

Learning and practicing alternative healing arts and Tai Ji martial arts has been ChiaHung's passion and says he loves to see people’s physical conditions improved after receiving the alternative healing modalities and receiving healing advice.

CHEO Meetings are free and are designed for educational purposes for the public. Everyone is welcome.  For more information, contact Merry Johnson by email at newearthsong@gmail.com, or by phone at 706-952-1608.

The Wheel Tax Wouldn't Be A Sacrifice And Supports Our Teachers - And Response (4)

I appreciate our underpaid teachers here in Tennessee so much. We as a whole have a moral obligation to make sure we contribute to their pay. A wheel tax on our cars is a minimal expense to most of us. Sixty dollars is not enough for us to complain. We shouldn't even bat an eye at that if it contributes to the hard working teachers who sacrifice daily for our children. We ... (click for more)
