Bethesda Tai Chi Classes on Monday night

 

 

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.
