With over 40 years experience in the Chinese healing arts Master Lam Kam Chuen has developed two Tai Chi Forms, The Small Circle Form that encapsulates all the fundamentals of
the art of Tai Chi Chuan,
and the Lam Traditional
Form for those who
wish to investigate this
art to a deeper level.
The Chinese exercise system of Tai Chi Chuan, was developed about 500 years ago, though the philosophy behind it can be traced back a further 1,500 years at least. Based on the Daoist principles of balance and harmony, Tai Chi’s gentle flowing movements, and natural breathing, have evolved into one of the most effective exercise routines.
What are the benefits of Tai Chi?
Tai Chi’s healing power has been used for many disorders, including heart and circulation problems, addictions, arthritis, muscular injuries, asthma and nervous disturbances. Recent research has shown a correlation between the practice of Tai Chi and the enhancement of the immune system and a marked reduction in the incidences of falls in older people.
With regular practice, Tai Chi develops stamina, strength and flexibility. The tensions that are so common today are released, allowing the body to perform as it should, breathing deepens and circulation, digestion, posture and balance all improve. As Tai Chi is a weight-bearing exercise,
