Help Fund the Tai Chi Easy™ Dissemination Project


As our population ages, institutions worldwide are investing resources where they see the biggest return in quality of life: non-medical health interventions that augment traditional treatments.

Many organizations support the Healer Within Foundation because our wellness interventions improve health where it’s needed most. Our goal is to empower the under-served to activate health and well‐being in their own lives, their family and community, thereby reducing public health costs.  

We do this by supporting those who reach out to these populations through existing service agencies, hospitals, low-income housing, and schools. Our approach is to provide these workers with knowledge and training to inform and inspire people who would otherwise not be exposed to these simple yet effective methods.

Positive Results

"I am getting very positive feedback from my Cancer Survivor group at the hospital – ‘empowering’, ‘better balance’, and ‘more energy’, are just a few of the positive comments.”

Why the Tai Chi Easy™ Dissemination Project?


Tai Chi is at the forefront of low-cost health interventions. Harvard University* is one of many institutions across the country that recognize the huge benefits of this simple method to participate in one’s own healing.

Our Tai Chi Easy™ Dissemination Project gives every individual the tools they need take responsibility for their personal wellness.

The result?  Improved health in the target communities and reduced visits to the doctor, pharmacy and hospital!
Medically-proven to effectively support disease prevention, Tai Chi accelerates healing and lowers stress – all for little expense in large populations:

  1.  According to research, 70% to 90% of all disease is preventable.
  2. Tai Chi and Qigong are proven to prevent disease, reduce stress and accelerate healing*.
  3. Tai Chi Easy™ is an internationally utilized program ‐ and it really is EASY!

Medication In Motion

"Tai Chi is often described as ‘meditation in motion,’ but it might well be called ‘medication in motion.’ When combined with standard treatment, Tai Chi appears to be helpful for numerous medical conditions including arthritis, low bone density, breast cancer, heart disease, heart failure, hypertension, Parkinson’s disease, sleep problems, and stroke.”

Serving the Homeless and the Ailing

"After my home was foreclosed, I lost my car, home, and most of my belongings. I was so very down. My Tai Chi Easy™ Instructor, and the practices have helped me so much to release great stress and frustration. I so hope these classes can be offered to help others like me."
