Last month Healthbeat, a publication of Harvard Medical School reported that the regular practice of Tai Chi leads to a healthier, happier life.
The key to Tai Chi’s scientifically backed health benefits is ‘qi’ the vital energy of the body. When qi flows freely the body is balanced and healthy. If qi is weakened or blocked, physical, mental and emotional problems are experienced.
In an increasing number of recent studies, tai chi has proven to benefit health in many ways including: lower blood pressure, reduce stress, build strength and balance, slow the onset of dementia, relieve pain. Everyone can benefit regardless of fitness levels without the risk of injury.
