T’ai chi ch’uan literally translates as “grand ultimate fist”. The grand ultimate is symbolized by what we in the west call the ‘yin-yang symbol’ (the t’ai chi t’u). This symbol illustrates the concept of a still point at the center of dynamic movement.

T’ai chi ch’uan is an excellent adjunct to acupuncture treatment. Because it is a moving exercise, and the movements have been designed to promote qi flow in certain meridians in a certain sequence, it helps resolve many types of pain patterns. Its use of movement together with standing makes it ideal for women with menstrual difficulties, menopausal symptoms, or women recovering from childbirth because it promotes free flow of qi through the uterus.
