According to the Mayo Clinic, a US medical research group, more than 2.5 million Americans are reporting decreased stress and anxiety, increased energy, stamina and flexibility, muscle strength and definition and balance. There is also evidence that Tai Chi improves immune response, sleeping patterns, lowers cholesterol levels, relieves joint pain and, in older adults, reduces the risk of falls. The University of Queensland conducted a study of the effectiveness of using Tai Chi to combat stress and depression, as did Sydney University that was published in the European Respiratory Journal that demonstrates the effectiveness of Tai Chi in fighting stress and improving general health.

Tai Chi improves Fibromyalgia symptoms According to the October 2010 (Vol. 20, No.10) issue of Dr Whitaker's HEALTH & HEALING Newsletter: "In a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers from Tufts University School of Medicine evaluated the effectiveness of Tai Chi versus wellness education and stretching exercises in 66 patients with fibromyalgia. At the end of the 12-week study, those who practiced Tai Chi twice weekly experienced decreased pain, improved sleep and mood, increased exercise capacity, and better quality of life - and benefits endured after 24 weeks. The stretching/education group reported minimal improvements. Tai Chi is great for other pain syndromes as well. Look for group classes at your local gym or community center, or pick up an exercise video that can walk you through the basics." Our Easy Tai Chi - Qigong" DVD does that.

The Harvard Medical School Health Publication, May 2009 issue, shared that "Tai Chi is often described as 'meditation in motion,' but it might well be called 'medication in motion'... There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice...has value in treating or preventing many health problems. And you can get started even if you are not in top shape or the best of Health." It's good for easy senior exercises and stress relief.
