A Huge Finding

Here is the article about research on Lymphatic vessels in the brain.

We talk a lot about lymph drainage in Tai Chi – in particular there are certain exercises that we do in which we discuss the effect on the dura mater (the covering of the brain where lymph vessels are now known to exit). There are a lot of implications!

Which is more difficult to come up with?

This morning I was told a story about a woman who will be having heart surgery next week. It will cost  in the neighborhood of $100,000 dollars.

All I could think about afterwards was how much JuicePlus+ $100,000 would buy.

When people choose not to take JuicePlus+ they usually mention price as a big part of the reason: too hard to come up with a couple of dollars a day for whole food in capsules to cover the serving of fruits and vegetables that they do not, can not, or will not get in their daily diet.

Course Description:

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese system of exercise, and self-defense, based on the principles of stillness overcoming motion, and softness overcoming hardness. It teaches (1) how to breath, so you can relax and manage stress, (2) how to align yourself to relate to gravity and other forces, (3) how to move in a way that is safe and strong, and (4) how to be sensitive and aware. This Class will focus on teaching Tai Chi principles by learning part of the Long Round Hand Form, and three basic, foundational, Push Hands drills.

Course Objectives:

  1. Learn the beginning of the Long Round Hand Form (Styles 1- 17)
  2. Demonstrate knowledge of basic Tai Chi terminology
  3. Describe and demonstrate both Front and Back Stance
  4. Describe and demonstrate elementary Push Hands (e.g., 7-Star Step)
  5. Learn the 5 Components or “Five Pillars” of Tai Chi

Clothing: Street clothes are fine, loose enough so that you can move, or gym clothes. Flat-soled shoes are preferred for balance purposes. Wear shoes that will not mark up the floor.

Class Policies:

  1. Arrive on time
  2. Clean is good – so is trimmed nails and little or no jewelry
  3. Do not eat or drink too much before class, but do not come on an empty stomach
  4. Stay hydrated
  5. Please turn off, and put away, your Cell Phone

Course Outline:

  1. Warm ups

  3. Beginning of the Long Round Hand Form
  4. Push Hands: Fixed Step (Single Hand & 4 Directions) and 7-Star Moving Step
  5. Discuss functional aspects of Tai Chi (e.g., self-defense applications, stress management)

Evaluation:

  1. Letter grades are used
  2. ATTENDANCE is required
  3. If you are late, or absent unexcused, your grade will be lowered:

 

9- 10             classes attended = A

8                   classes attended = B

6-7                classes attended = C

Less than 6 classes attended = FAILING Grade!!!

 

 

A PASS- FAIL formatted make-up test will be offered on week 8 or 9, which will raise your Grade one level.

There is something about nuts. Here are a few things that you might want to know.

The Importance of Breath

“For many people it seems difficult to believe that changing breathing patterns can have such significant impact on mental and physical health. Not to mention performance and recovery.
It is the lowest hangning fruit and very few poeple are picking it. Instead many are looking for complicated methods or become dependent of pharmaceuticals.”

– Paul Silfverstrale, Wudang Practical Tai Chi Chuan

Here is his recent Blog Post entitled Nasal Breathing: https://wudangtaichichuan.wordpress.com/2017/07/29/tai-chi-chuan-qi-nasal-breathing/

It compliments, perfectly, all that I have said on this Blog on the subject, including the very recent Post on mouth breathing (the problem).

Maybe you too?

“I feel amazing” she said. And “doing stuff that I haven’t done in years… and on my knees too!”

When I met this patient in December of last year, it was: “I sometimes have to pull over…” while driving due to knee pain. She said that her back was “always really tight” and it had been that way for two years.

Now?

She is going a month between visits. She knows how to brace and breathe, and how to bend and lift, as well as get up and down off the ground. She does the exercises to keep the joints that I adjust moving between visits; and she is helping her husband build a 40 foot deck – with no pain anywhere!

This is a woman who has had back surgery for lower back disc herniations – twice.

Not every patient does this well. Not all chiropractors check and adjust hip, knee, and ankle/foot joints. But all chiropractors who use the Activator Method properly can check all the joints. If you need help finding a decent chiropractor in your area, just let me know. Maybe I can help.

And if you are within striking distance of Everett, WA., then give us a call at (425) 348-5207.

Priority #1 Video (Breathing!)

It is amazing where and from whom you learn the most important stuff: in this case it was while having my teeth cleaned.

What I like about this video is that, first, tai chi is never mentioned one time. And second, all of this wisdom and life-changing advice flows naturally in the learning and practice of… tai chi!

The last thing about this video that makes it priceless is that you are not hearing any of it from me. If you have heard it all from me in the past, perhaps this video will impress upon you the value of the information. If not, please take every word seriously – she makes one technical, little tiny, mistake, but the message is huge and everyone needs to hear it. You especially need to hear it if you plan to deliver via C-section, plan not to breast feed, or plan to feed your baby cow products… or if any of the above happened to you. (I know, you are wondering how and if all of those things are really related. They are.) Enjoy this amazingly important presentation.
