The Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi (IIQTC) is dedicated to mobilizing citizens of all ages, professions, economic and social status to accept the responsibility for personal health promotion and self-care. The primary methodology for this initiative is to help to bring the ancient and sometimes esoteric self-care methods that are associated with traditional Chinese medicine – Tai Chi and Qigong – within the reach of typical American citizens.
The extent to which an optimization of access to self-care tools and information can reduce the disease and mortality load and save money is significant and the Chinese self-care system is perfectly suited to create the desired outcomes. The IIQTC presents programs for the public that make access to Qigong and Tai Chi easy and enjoyable. In addition, the Institute trains Community Practice Leaders and Certified Integral Qigong and Tai Chi Teachers who work in community centers, hospitals, clinics, schools, churches, social service agencies and the justice system.
