Wu Style Tai Chi

Recently, I was asked by Florence Waters of The Telegraph to comment on tai chi as an antidote to stress germane to living in a digital age. When I explain to people that I healed my body from a serious motorcycle accident with nei gong and meditation alone, it often conjures notions of disbelief. However, I’m just one of millions of people throughout the ages who has not only found a path to healing, but also sustained and even amplified that healthy state of being throughout their lifetime from dedicated Tao arts training.
