What are participants recovering from cancer saying about Taoist Tai Chi® practice?

“I recently had surgery for glioblastoma, a relatively rare brain cancer. Taoist Tai Chi® practice helped my mental focus and relieved physical distress while in the hospital undergoing testing and then surgery.

Afterward, the medical staff was amazed with how quickly I healed. Taoist Tai Chi® arts almost immediately increased my energy. I just stood up from the bed after surgery and was walking unaided by the next morning.”

– Ian, Alberta

Taoist Tai Chi® practice has helped me cultivate a sense of grounding, patience and strength that allowed me to endure the cancer treatment regimen. Following chemotherapy, I needed major surgery. I am still recovering and practicing Taoist Tai Chi® arts every day as a way to heal and improve my strength.

Having visitors from the FLK community also alleviated some of my pain and sickness. Being connected to the group has been a tremendous source of strength in these hard times.”

“I started practicing Taoist Tai Chi® arts over 20 years ago as a healthy, busy working mom. They have been a companion through many changes and the practice has helped me through many life challenges.

Now, the unexpected diagnosis of Stage 4 cancer has brought limited life expectancy and emotional turmoil. Yet the physical and mental strength I’ve developed through Taoist Tai Chi® practice has given me the ability to continue to pursue life and activities as I choose. Taoist Tai Chi® practice works through your whole life cycle.”
