The Lifestyle Medicine and Wellness Series are free, virtual events scheduled throughout the year focused on different lifestyle medicine and wellness topics. These events are free and open to the UC + Cincinnati community and beyond!
therapies such as Tai Chi and Qigong are one of the Eight Pillars of
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) used to treat and maintain the body, mind,
and spirit. These movement therapies are essential for health in TCM just
like acupuncture, herbal medicine, and nutrition. Tai Chi was developed
relatively recently (around the 17th century) to blend and balance
the opposites of Yin and Yang yet it is rooted in philosophy and prescribed
movements thousands of years old. It has developed and spread across the
world as an art form and expression of health and spirituality.
Chi has been shown to play a significant role in improving and maintaining good
health in conjunction with other forms of modern medicine. Measurable
improvements have been documented including balance, cardiovascular
health, cognition, mood, and sleep.
This event is also offered in collaboration with Be Well UC as part of their Be the Change event.
