Tai chi can Give Your Aging Body a Lift

Tai chi is a form of exercise that began in ancient China thousands of years ago. Its focus on careful movement and concentration has led to its popularity among the older population. Studies have shown that this practice has several health benefits, including building strength, improving moods, and restoring the balance between spirit and body. It has also been known to alleviate symptoms from fibromyalgia and Parkinson’s Disease. Many describe tai chi as “meditation in motion” because it involves relaxing movements that help energy flow through the body. These simple circular motions can be practiced by anyone, even those with limited motion. As studies on the effects of tai chi continue throughout the world, the amount of both physical and mental benefits of this exercise appears to be endless.
