Mass Tai-Chi and Qigong (Chi Kung) Exhibitions will be held in public places. To educate the world about the benefits of the
Traditional-Chinese-Medicine exercises of T'ai-Chi and Qigong (Chi Kung).


Tai Chi and Qigong (Chi Kung) are health technologies evolved over several thousand years of research in China and now growing in popularity worldwide.
They are used in hospitals, business, prisons, schools, and other institutions. Tai Chi and Qigong have been shown in research to reduce anxiety,
depression, chronic pain conditions. They boost the immune system, improve respiratory function, burn calories, dramatically improve balance, provide
cardiovascular benefit, provide powerful stress management tools, and slow aspects of the aging process.
