Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi is a form of exercise that combines the movements of Tai Chi and Qigong to provide comprehensive health benefits for people of all ages and fitness levels. It can be tailored to individual needs so that everyone can improve or maintain their overall health and vitality.

It was created by Master Lin Hou Sheng from the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Shanghai. Lin Hou Sheng, as well as being a TCM graduate, was a renowned Qigong master. He was a professor at the Shanghai TCM Institute, Director of the China Research Institute, and Honorary President of the International Association for Natural Therapies. He was also the author of several specialized books and articles on Qigong topics. Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi can help improve balance, coordination, posture and flexibility. It also has many other health benefits such as improved circulation, muscle tone and relaxation. The practice of Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi increases the body's natural energy flow. This can help improve mood, concentration, mental clarity and promote calmness and relaxation. It is also thought to reduce stress levels, anxiety and depression. Regular practice of Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi is believed to strengthen the immune system, increase joint mobility and reduce the risk of many chronic health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi encourages slow, controlled movements and breath awareness. This helps to improve breathing, allowing for easier and more efficient absorption of oxygen into the body. It also helps to reduce mental fatigue, allowing for more effective focus. Tai chi qigong shibashi is one of the fastest growing forms of Qigong practiced today due to its many health benefits. As a teacher of Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi, I can highly recommend it for people with chronic lung conditions. If you would like to see if Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi is a practice that would benefit you, I will be starting classes on Zoom in late spring. The excellent video below shows how the movements are carried out from the front and side.
