Tai Chi is Highly Recommended
Tai Chi (Taijiquan) has been widely recommended by places like the Mayo Clinic and Harvard Medical School to prevent and reverse health conditions related to aging! A great practice for fall prevention, arthritis, and Parkinson’s. Also for high blood pressure, poor sleep, back and neck pain, and chronic stress. All experience levels welcome.
"Conventional medical science on the Chinese art of Taijiquan now shows what Tai Chi masters have known for centuries: regular practice leads to more vigor and flexibility, better balance and mobility, and a sense of well-being. Cutting-edge research from Harvard Medical School also supports the long-standing claims that Tai Chi also has a beneficial impact on the health of the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, immune system, and the mind." The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi: 12 Weeks to a Healthy Body, Strong Heart, and Sharp Mind (Harvard Health Publications). Tai Chi for Arthritis is also recommended by the Arthritis Foundation. Read the full article
