Bethesda Tai Chi Classes on Monday and Wednesday

 

 

Tai chi is a gentle form of exercise, often described as "meditation in motion," but it might well be called "medication in motion."

There is a growing body of carefully conducted research building a compelling case for tai chi for the prevention and rehabilitation of many conditions commonly associated with age.

 

  • Arthritis - slow down the painful inflammatory symptoms
  • Low bone density -  maintain bone density in postmenopausal women
  • Breast cancer -  improve the quality of life of women recovering/suffering from breast cancer
  • Heart disease -  lower blood pressure, improved levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, insulin in people at high risk for heart disease
  • Heart Failure - improve patient's ability to walk and quality of life during recovery
  • Hypertension -   lower blood pressure
  • Parkinson's disease - improve balance, walking ability, and overall well-being
  • Sleep problems - improve the quality and duration of sleep significantly more than standard sleep education
  • Stroke - improve balance and coordination in stroke patients.
