The benefits of Taiji
In an analysis, done in the USA, researchers studied the effect that regular attendance at Taiji classes had on people. Their study was to measure the impact that the Taiji had on chronic illnesses and health issues such as hypertension, ME, etc.
What they discovered was that regular Taiji classes had a beneficial effect on things like flexibility, balance, co-ordination, stress levels, pain reduction, anxiety, depression and the health of the heart.
To see their findings, see the JAMA Network (originally The Archives of Internal Medicine)
