My Journey with Tai Chi

Recovering from a hysterectomy I had many complications, anxiety, depression, urinary tract infections, yeast and bacterial infections. Eight months before that I had a breast biopsy. Headaches and fatigue were horrible. I felt terrible from constant panic attaches. I didn’t know what else to do and my doctors were going no where with me, but giving me more antibiotics, which made me worse.
Dr. Aihan Kuhn explained to me Chinese medicine. I was very skeptical and frightened. I recall her words “don’t worry”, “don’t worry”, she said. That day she did Acupressure on my ear immediately I felt better. She sent me home with tea to make and drink for a wee. After that week I felt better.
Weeks later she did more treatment to help my bladder and I am doing quite well. She also helped my back for arthritis and the pain and swelling are almost gone. It has now been nine months and I think my progress has been very good. I have also learned Tai Chi and Chi Gong. These exercises are a lot of hard work because you must practice every day, but it is a lot of fun and very rewarding. I feel very balanced and my sleeping also improved.
I never dreamed I could learn Tai Chi, but everyone in the classes I took were so helpful and gave me so much encouragement. My first Tai Chi class was so stressful because I was so scared. My hands and knees were shaking so hard I remember saying to myself “I am so nervous, how can I even learn this, this is impossible”. But everyone in the class said to me “don’t stop trying, you’ll get it, it takes time and practice”. Okay I said and I practiced every day, every week for weeks and finally one week I got it. It just clicked in and I did it I did Tai Chi! I was so proud of myself and so thankful for meeting such wonderful people (from Dr. Kuhn’s Tai Chi school) who helped me and gave me all this encouragement.
Now I do Tai Chi and Qi Gong morning and night. It keeps me in balance and very healthy. I have more energy and less paid and disease. Dr. Aihan Kuhn is a remarkable person. I listen to everything she tells me and teaches me. She takes the time to talk to me no matter how busy she is. She cares about people, she is very honest and strict she expects nothing but the best you can do and she always has your best interest in mind. I respect her so much as a person, teacher, philosopher and Doctor of medicine. Alternative medicine, Dr. Aihan Kuhn and many people in her classes have helped me tremendously in my healing. I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart.
