Tai Chi, the calming and serene martial art so beloved of the older generations, is being widely recognised for its health benefits and embraced by people of all ages.
If you’re lucky enough to have been given a Spafinder Wellness 365 Gift Voucher, then booking in for some Tai Chi classes will have you feeling grounded and centred in no time. But Tai Chi can also have an impact beyond your own wellness. The holistic approach of the practice means that you begin to develop a deeper understanding of not only the self but also of others around you, which means it can act as a couples’ therapy. Not many things you buy with your spa vouchers can say that.
Seeing The Bigger Picture
Couples in today’s world often have to make their relationships work on the fringes. They have busy jobs, ones that often creep into their home life, kids add another layer of complexity, then there’s maintaining some kind of a social life, trying to stay fit, and all the day to day tasks like cooking, cleaning and shopping. Tensions can be easy to form but difficult to resolve because we’re drowning in obligations.
This is where Tai Chi can help. The focus is on both the whole and achieving balance, which can help couples who are experiencing a rough patch. Attachment is a part of relationships, but this can often lead to a distorted view of problems. Imagine holding a box close to your face. You can only see one small angle of it, and even at arm’s length you have a limited view. Only by putting the box down can you move around it and see it from all angles. Through its flow of graceful movements Tai Chi clears the mind and this can help you approach problems in your relationship from a new perspective.
Spafinder Wellness 365 Gift Vouchers can be used towards any number of treatments and therapies. While a massage is great for your wellness, Tai Chi can offer similar benefits and can also help change your way of thinking and bring you closer to your significant other.
You’ll find many spas that offer Tai Chi classes, so choose your venue, cash in your spa gift vouchers and welcome some harmony to your relationship.
