Guthrie Acupuncture Clinic will be hosting an introductory class in tai chi with commentary on its energetic principals from a traditional Chinese medical perspective.

The presentation will take place on Thursday, Sept. 12, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., at 2100 Guthrie Road, Suite 107. A $5 fee per participant will be donated to the Comox Valley Head Injury Society, a local Comox Valley charity.

This presentation is a collaboration between Peter Day, acupuncturist, and Sean Murphy, registered massage therapist.

According to Day, “Many people know that tai chi has great health benefits but don’t know why. This includes some health care professional who advise their patients take it up. We hope this presentation will help explain why tai chi is such a powerful healing art, and that it is accessible to anyone who wishes to improve their health.”

Peter has co-hosted previous classes combining yoga with acupuncture meridian theory. Sean Murphy, besides his professional practice in massage, is a volunteer instructor for the Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi Society. This form of Tai Chi, first introduced in to the west by Master Moy Lin Shin, a Taoist monk, in 1970, focusing on health promotion. The 108-move set helps practitioners improve their strength, balance and flexibility, plus it acts as a form of moving meditation.

To reserve a place for this event please call 250-339-3394.
