Lifestyle within Chinese medicine refers to our levels of activity, the amount and type of exercise we perform, and also our working patterns.

The Chinese Medicine Sanctuary offers traditional Chinese exercises to help improve your health in a format that is both suitable to you and also meets your needs/interests.

Taiji, or more commonly spelt Tai Chi, is a gentle form of exercise that is suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes. Taiji works to relieve your life from stress, improve joint mobility and flexibility, and work to improve mind and body co-ordination. Taiji is especially beneficial to those with breathing problems.

Gongfu, or Kung Fu, is a traditional Chinese martial art that works to make you strong both physically and mentally. Gongfu is a strenuous form of exercise generally suited to those of a younger age. Gongfu also helps to develop confidence, mental discipline and clarity, and strong body and also a very good way of learning to defend yourself should the worst occur.

With regards to working patterns, of course, some people’s jobs are more strenuous that others, or may be working longer or less sociable hours. This is sometimes outside of our control due to life’s commitments, but often there is an alternative if we are looking for one. The Chinese Medicine Sanctuary can not do anything to help this part of your life, but if there is a detrimental effect occurring to your body or mental state of health, it may be possible to help your body and mind deal with this stress/excessive exertion.
