Tai Chi for Stress,Flexibility and Health

A Study conducted over 12 weeks concluded that Tai Chi Practice for that time reduced stress levels in healthy individuals.Stress can make us breathe faster.When we breathe mindfully,as in Tai Chi ,we will improve relaxation and help our balance.In fact Tai Chi is often called meditation in motion.Dr Paul Lam in his book “Teaching Tai Chi Effectively” says that when you are inhaling and storing energy you should “think of taking life energy into your body.When you exhale,think of delivering energy or force”.Tai Chi helps improve upper and lower body strength when practiced regularly.It is comparable to resistance training and brisk walking.Although you are not working with weights or resistance bands,the movements strengthen your upper and lower body.An article from Harvard Health Publishing on Tai Chi says “It also strengthens the lower and upper body extremities,the core muscles and boosts flexibility”.I explain more about the benefits of Tai Chi and Chinese Medicine in my book “Health and Weight Management Teachings From The East”See https://www.amazon.co.uk/Health-Weight-Management-Teachings-East/dp/1913776077
