Mayo Clinic staff explains:

Despite its ancient history, tai chi has been studied scientifically only in recent years. Research is suggesting that tai chi may offer numerous benefits beyond stress reduction, including:

  • Reducing anxiety and depression
  • Improving balance and coordination
  • Reducing the number of falls
  • Improving sleep quality, such as staying asleep longer at night and feeling more alert during the day
  • Slowing bone loss in women after menopause
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Improving cardiovascular fitness
  • Relieving chronic pain
  • Improving everyday physical functioning 

Many sources can tell you about the health benefits of practicing Tai Chi and Qi Gong.

We’ve included a few here.  We avoid the over zealous practitioners whose promises are vast.

We rely on sources with practical research and our personal experiences,

Mayo Clinic is a world renowned medical institution.  We suggest it is a good way to begin your investigation into the health benefits of Tai Chi.
