Tai Chi is recognized around the world for its flowing, graceful movements. It stimulates the mind while gently exercising the body.
Not all fitness exercises are suitable for people with health issues. An effective program should have low risk of injury and fulfil three objectives: increase flexibility, strengthen muscles, and improve cardiorespiratory fitness. Tai Chi for Health does all these and more!
Dr. Paul Lam, a retired family physician and tai chi master, led a team of tai chi and medical specialists to create this evidence-based program. It is easy, enjoyable, and safe for people with arthritis or any form of impaired mobility, but it's also a great beginning for people of any age.
Medical studies have shown Tai Chi helps to relieve pain for people with arthritis and improve their quality of life, as well as help prevent falls for older adults. Arthritis foundations around the world as well as the CDC have given Dr. Lam's Tai Chi for Arthritis program their full support!
