Tai Chi for Fibromyalgia

Tai Chi and Qigong for Fibromyalgia

Tai Chi for Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a non curable medical condition/syndrome that causes chronic musculoskeletal pain and fatigue in the muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is often misunderstood by the health service here in the UK, and effective treatment outside of long term pain relief medication is lacking. There is a natural approach to try, to aid the symptoms in a gentle way. Tai Chi and Qigong can be practised by anybody of any age, without restriction on fitness levels or movement ability. Being low impact, the movements are ideal to gently build up to exercise, which in turn helps reduce pain levels, and increases the ability to cope.

How Tai Chi and Qigong can aid the symptoms of Fibromyalgia

The practices of Tai Chi and Qigong are gentle ways to approach exercise when living with fibromyalgia. The movements can be adapted to the ebb and flow of each student’s health baseline, from lying down to seated and standing. The Classical Chinese movement arts are both powerful and relaxing. A high importance is placed on a correctly aligned posture relating to life long physiological health. There is a difference between good and bad pain which Tai Chi and Qigong help to teach, so the students can exercise in a healthy and appropriate way. When learning the movements, students also learn about pain as an observation tool and how to pace and manage chronic fatigue.  Find out the meaning of qi gong.
