The Taoist Water Method is a Qigong form that has many health benefits. It provides mental clarity, loosens the muscles and builds power, strengthens the organs, improves cardio-pulmonary function, strengthens the nerves, improves vascular function, helps to prevent injury to joints, ligaments and bones, eases stress, balances emotions and builds athletic and martial arts power.
Qigong exercises are safe for all ages. Unlike Tai Chi, Qigong doesn’t require memorization of a lot of movements. This introduction will go over the basic alignments to increase qi through the body.
