Arthritis Care Gateshead Branch Night April

Come along to our friendly informal branch meeting, and meet up with people all affected by arthritis.

This month is our AGM followed by a demonstration of Qigong a form of Tai Chi suitable for people with arthritis, which can be done seated or standing.

Jim Crammond Tai Chi In instructor explains a bit more ........................

The Qigong that was taught to me by my Chinese teacher  Master Ma, teaches a set of ancient exercises that are an essential aid in keeping mind and body healthy. These exercises can be practiced by anyone and just a few minutes a day can make a difference.

The exercise themselves take the form of simple body movements done slowly and in complete relaxation. There is nothing mystical or magical about these exercises they just work. Each exercise has a different effect or function and can be practiced as a general aid to good health and to treat specific ailments. These exercises are ideal for all ages as they have various benefits including: aiding digestion, improving balance, assisting the control of high blood pressure, improving flexibility and creating a sense of wellbeing.

The great thing about Qigong is that the exercises need no special clothing can be practised anywhere and once learnt are never forgotten.

Qigong is made up of two Chinese words:

1         Qi is the energy that circulates within the body.

2         Gong means work in Chinese

Qigong = Working to cultivate energy to improve health.
