Pain Management & Exercise


Introduction
The Chinese have an old saying that nine out of ten people who learn martial arts get injured, indicating that if you train improperly or overtrain, you risk injury. Some wise person in the past recognized this problem and added health maintenance practices, such as chi kung and meditation, to martial training programs to create a new kind of art.

Tai Chi Chuan is today a well-known art for health and self-defense. The name we know today first appeared sometime between the Sung and Ming dynasties (A.D. 960-1500), but the basic theory and fundamentals of the art germinated in China over 2,000 years ago.

Proper exercise is one of the basic elements required to support proper functioning of the human body. Historically life is associated with movement, and only recently have large numbers of people adopted a sedentary lifestyle, due in large part to changes in technology. The human body is well adapted for motion, and it functions poorly without it. Exercise is now recommended treatment for such problems as heart disease, obesity, and depression. It provides many health benefits through regular practice. The age-old art of tai chi chuan encourages the body's own natural health maintenance and healing processes with positive effects on the various parts of the body.

Standing Post
Standing Post, or Zhan Zhuang, is a combination of chi kung, meditation, and mental power. Chi kung (qigong) has been established in China for over 2,500 years as a tool for health purposes. Taoist philosophy adopted it as a fundamental element for long life and a sense of the universe. Chi kung is a name to express how to convert the potential energy into the active energy of the human body; its function completely depends on your approach (health or self-defense). Standing Post was for years a top secret in China. As time goes by, scientific knowledge develops more broadly. Many mysterious and unexplainable questions about this art can be explained today. This art is one of the best approaches for aged and physically ill people, especially when they are afflicted with poor blood circulation or joint problems, are too weak to walk, or lack mobility after surgery.

Finger Pressure Treatment
In terms of self-defense, finger pressure is a lethal weapon. However, together with proper exercise, it will help people recovering from different kinds of pain, such as

  • Wrist
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Elbow
  • Neck
  • Shoulder
  • Knee
  • Back
  • Waist
  • Muscle . . . etc.
Finger pressure is an alternative approach to the healing procedure based on acupuncture theory and years of professional experience. It has been proved by history and experience in the Chinese culture.
