What kinds of Martial arts integrate relaxation techniques?

Qigong and Tai Chi are two types of martial arts that can improve our relaxation skills. The martial art Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that combines physical training (such as isometrics, isotonics, and aerobic conditioning) with Eastern philosophy and relaxation techniques. There are many different kinds of Qigong, including medical Qigong. Some forms are practiced while standing, sitting, or lying down; others involve structured movements or massage. Over 70 million Chinese practice some form of Qigong daily. Qigong has been used for centuries in China for the treatment of a variety of medical conditions. Learning Qigong involves time, commitment, patience, and determination, and learning from a master or group is advisable. Since this technique involves physical exertion, check with your doctor before beginning, particularly if you have a chronic medical condition or are over 40 years old.

Also known as Tai Chi Chuan, this methods is thousands of years old. As with Qigong, training from a master is necessary to learn the art of Taichi. Again, since motion and force are required, check with your doctor before beginning training.
