    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.

    Low bone density -  maintain bone density in postmenopausal women
