Benefits of Tai Chi
Tai Chi is a holistic practice, often described as a “meditation in motion”. The health benefits of this practice include better breathing, balance improvement, better flexibility, muscle strengthening. Also, Tai Chi alleviates stress and anxiety, supports calm and inner peace.
It is safe for people of all ages, as it does not put too much stress on the muscles and joints. Other possible benefits include improved sleep quality and an enhanced immune system.
Chronic pain and Tai Chi
Several studies suggest that a couple of months of Tai Chi practice can have an impact on the chronic pain experienced with conditions like osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia.
Moreover, a gentle practice like Tai Chi Chuan is beneficial for the spine. So many people with back pain are starting to try it as an adjunct to medical approaches to managing back pain.
