For health and happiness

There are many different styles of Qigong each with it's unique style and focus. Taijiwuxigong has exercises to encourage length in the spinal column and space throughout the body—in the intervertebral spaces, the joints, and also the heart and the mind. Taijiwuxigong can bring about a sense of openness, clarity, and emotional balance.

Developing a vibration force from the lower dantien in the belly, the system uses an outward focus encouraging qi (energy) to move through the meridians and leave the body.

As the qi develops, spontaneous movement can occur which helps release physical and emotional tensions which have accumulated in the body. 

Stress and daily habits affect our posture, nervous system, metabolism and general health.   Regular practice of Taijiwuxigong can undo and clear the effects of these habits and support the system to develop healthier responses and as well as healthier postural habits.

Buqi is the treatment system devised by Dr Shen Hongxun which uses taichi forces to support health.  

During a buqi treatment, the practitioner creates a vibration force which stems from the motive force of the cells. Each cell has it's motivity but the direction of their vibration force is not identical. The ability to align the motive force of the cells in a given part of the body in one direction forms the basis for creating vibration force for healing.

Disease can be caused by pathogenic factors and a build up of stagnant energy (binqi). This can accumulate in the intervertebral spaces, organs, muscles, tissues, joints and channels.  Negative emotions, such as stress, anger, fear and sadness, are another type of binqi. They can be experienced as uncomfortable sensations such as stiffness, pain or heat.

Buqi treatments work to clear binqi and promote the free flow of energy throughout the body’s meridian system. They can help with pain relief, inflammation, digestion, respiratory problems and hypertension. It can also be effective at rebalancing emotions and the nervous system. 

The patient may feel warmth or heat or may experience something moving into or out of the body, or pain shifting and leaving the body through the hands or feet, or there may be a sensation of the spinal column stretching more and more and the body becoming taller.

Often during or after a buqi treatment the person will be in a state of deep and natural relaxation.
