Tai Chi Gong Improve Migraine & Stroke

— Sim Tzehong.  Jan 2008

In this issue we discuss about migraine and stroke. My mum used to have migraine throughout her middle age and I can relate to the suffering she had gone through.  I had a student from Kuching, Malaysia who suffered migraine for 20 years. He healed completely after a year of practicing Tai Chi Gong. As for stroke, my parents both suffer minor stoke in their old age. I myself had half body numbness in year 2000, which is a symptom to get stroke. I started learning Tai Chi Gong then and recovered in two months.

I felt a sense of mission to teach and to continue teaching Tai Chi Gong as it is such a precious GIFT to people who are looking for effective way to heal their body.
