Tai Chi Therapy

Bill Chesnic

Tai Chi Therapy is established upon Eastern and Western health practices.

From the East are Tai Chi and Qigong. Tai Chi is an exercise program adapted from the Internal Chinese Martial Art Tai Chi Chuan; Qigong can be a variety of breathing energy exercises which when practiced with Tai Chi are part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) system utilized to balance and enhance the flow of the life-giving energy the Chinese call Qi! 

  From the West are proven pre-assessments and training protocols to help a person safely achieve their training goals as set forth by The National Academy of Sports Medicine . Because there is no recognized certification for teaching Tai Chi, Bill decided to pursue his Personal Trainer certification to add further credibility to his chosen medical emphasis to Tai Chi Therapy. 

  The first 'outsider' to learn Tai Chi did so by observing through a fence! Since then, five families of Tai Chi have been formally recognized and the tradition of passing these arts from teacher to student continues to be the preferred method of learning. Bills' first Yang style Tai Chi teacher was on Kadena AB, Okinawa, Japan in 1985. Bill continued his studies in Yang Tai Chi with the late Dr. John Ruberto, Life Member of The International Matsumura Society and American Martial Art Hall of Fame Inductee, from 2008 - 2014.  Bill then continued his Yang Tai Chi studies under Peter Wayne, Ph.D., author of "The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi" and lead instructor at The Tree of Life Studio in Boston.

What our customers are saying

Tai Chi does not mean oriental wisdom or something exotic.

It is the wisdom of your own senses, your own mind and body together as one process.
