Benefits of Tai Chi

People who practice tai chi properly on a regular basis will reap many benefits.  For years, tai chi has been thought to relieve stress, improve coordination, tone muscles, maintain good posture, develop flexibility, and helps neutralize the effects of arthritis. 

In recent years, there has been research focused on the effects of tai chi on arthritis, fibromyalgia, diabetes, and seniors prone to falling, just to name a few.  You can get access to abstracts of tai chi-related research by following this link:  http://www.taichiresearch.com/
