There are studies showing that tai chi improves balance, flexibility, strength and motor coordination….yeah, we knew that….
No wait, there’s more….
Today I read about a study that shows that practicing tai chi makes your brain bigger! Apparently that means less dementia as we age. Geez, what else? Tai chi has been shown to reduce the symptoms of arthritis, fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s disease and I don’t even know what else.
I am interested in what science is discovering about tai chi – and accumulating the evidence to prove the health benefits are ‘real.’ If you are curious to learn more, I am keeping a list at RESEARCH CENTRAL. Check it out.
Meanwhile, I am also just as happy to know that when I practice, I feel better. Glad the science proves it!
til the next move
enjoy your practice,
