Researchers at Harvard University published growing evidence which demonstrated that mind-body Tai Chi practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems such as high blood pressure and heart disease. Combined with traditional treatment, Tai Chi appears to be valuable for several medical conditions such as anxiety, depression, back pain, arthritis, low bone density, breast cancer, heart disease, hypertension, Parkinson’s disease, sleep problems and stroke. Participating in Tai Chi may also help to boost the immune system and improve respiratory-circulatory function. It will also burn calories, drastically improve balance, provide cardiovascular benefits, release stress and prolong both the quality and quantity of life.
Through circular motions, Tai Gong exercise serves to improve, re-channel and mobilize Qi flow, increase energy levels, strengthen organs, ligaments and muscles, and improve the transportation of oxygen, energy and nutrients for proper healing and body function. In fact, additional studies conducted by UCLA found that older people who practiced Tai Chi and Qi Gong had a much better immune response against any virus.
