Tai Chi is known for its deep breathing and smooth flowing body movements that give your mind, body and spirit a workout. Included is Chinese self massage – called Dao Yin (DOW-in). Dao Yin self massage can help release tension, reduce anxiety, make you feel more relaxed and increase circulation of blood, qi (energy flow) and fluids. Research has shown that massage can cause your body to release natural painkillers and may also boost your immune system.
