WTCQD on National Health Care & Tai Chi and Qigong
National Health & Education Ministry's,
[If your national health or Education Ministry's contact information is not below, please look it up and forward it to us to post here.]
World Tai Chi & Qigong Day is dissatisfied with the amount of health media coverage of Tai Chi & Qigong benefits as exposed in emerging medical research (limited as that research is). Therefore, we feel it is the duty of citizens who've experienced the benefits of Tai Chi & Qigong practice, and teachers who've witnessed students benefits, to report this to their local, regional, and national health departments, ministries, and other health institutions.

Also, we should provide them with emerging medical research from medical institutions, as there is a great chance they are unaware of what Tai Chi & Qigong offer their citizens that they represent. Until everyone with hypertension knows that Tai Chi and Qigong may lower their high blood pressure, and until everyone with anxiety, depression, or a balance disorder knows that Tai Chi has been shown to be an effective therapy for their condition, and until everyone knows that stress is responsible for the majority of illness in many countries, and that Tai Chi & Qigong are powerful stress reduction systems . . . we shall not rest. And we encourage you to join our efforts!

Choose from any of the Medical Research on Tai Chi & Qigong at our Medical Research section:

and ask your national health ministry or health department if they are aware of it, and if their citizens are aware of it.
