This removes stale and stagnant Qi from the body, clears the meridians, stimulates the nervous system and circulation and releases happy hormones into the bloodstream, significantly improving mood and vitality.

The following videos cover the joint opening routine and is presented in 4 parts. The name of this practice is Taoist Long Life set and this is a very old practice. We also use this routine to warm up for our Tai Chi classes. As a stand alone practice this routine is very effective at repairing and reconditioning the body. During the decades that I have been teaching this the results have been nothing short of miraculous.
These videos were filmed and narrated by myself, Thomas Ogram while I was a teacher at the Chen Tai Chi Academy before I decided to specialize in Wellness retreats.
