I have written about the benefits to health achieved through regular practice of Tai Chi Chuan many times, in many platforms and publications.
There are so many benefits that, if you wish to list the scientific studies that support the many anecdotal claims, you would need more than a book, perhaps even a small library.
there have been an increasing number of studies in recent years that do more than suggest that Tai Chi is beneficial, they confirm it.
Whilst parts of the British NHS currently promote the view that Tai Chi is considered beneficial but that more studies need to be made, something no reasonably person would disagree with, others are actively using it for pain control, falls prevention, and to allieviate stress. The fact is there have been an increasing number of studies in recent years that do more than suggest that Tai Chi is beneficial, they confirm it.
From the training hall to the office, the infant school to the care home,
So for the sake of brevity, here is a link to a 2010 article published in the New York times which positively skips along, yet lays out the issues around scientific studies of such a complex activity, yet at the same time, covers the things many people are interested in, All credit to the author and previously mentioned publication. I can not vouch for the links or adverts placed in the NYT, so caveat emptor as usual. Enjoy.: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/28/health/28brody.html?_r=2
