Tai Chi has many benefits, including: stress reduction, improved circulation, the lessening of arthritic and other pain, an increase in flexibility, lowered blood pressure, and improved balance. This gentle form of exercise can prevent or ease many ills of aging and could be the perfect activity for the rest of your life. Tai Chi is often described as "meditation in motion" but it might as well be called "medication in motion". There's growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. And you can get started even if you aren't in top shape or the best of health. Tai Chi exercises regulate all systems within the body improving digestion, respiration and circulation, stimulates the central nervous system, lowers blood pressure, cholesterol, and reduces coronary heart disease. Tai Chi can also lead to a reduction in stress-related disorders. The low-impact nature of the routines improves the condition of bones, joints and muscles without strain while encouraging internal energy, balance, focuses, flexibility and co-ordination to promote health and vitality within the individual. Although beginners perform the movements slowly at first, as their general health and ability improve, these can then be performed with lower postures and in a more dynamic manner that provides the same beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system as jogging or high-impact aerobics, but without the stress and strain. As a martial art, Tai Chi Chuan is famed throughout the world for it`s incredible power and proven self defense.
