Tai Chi and its Health Benefits

January 22, 2013

It’s no secret that alternative health therapy is becoming widely searched by more and more people everyday. And believe it or not, Tai chi is one of the most popular¬†exercises¬†performed in the world today. Although it’s relatively new to the western world, it’s becoming more popular each day. This 2 thousand year old Chinese Martial Arts practice is actually quite simple to learn and comes with many benefits.

A friend of mine had been attending tai chi classes for about a year now and it seemed to have aided him in controlling his anxiety and stress levels. Stress issues had always been a huge factor he dealt with in his life and it became difficult for him to think positively. As a result, he now tries as many alternative treatments as possible to assist him in managing his stress. Between tai chi and meditation, both work incredibly well.

Ever since his attendance, he’s found that he’s able to deal with stress issues much better and has become less anxious than he used to be. People have also mentioned that he looks much younger and not to mention healthier than before. Supposedly, one amazing benefit of practicing Tai Chi is that it aides in delaying the aging process.

Some other benefits:

Improves Balance

Maintains mobility in people well into their old age

Reduces asthma

Aides in recovery from certain injuries

Bosts your immune system

Lowers blood pressure

This goes with out saying but although tai chi may not be for everyone, you can also try meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, hypnotherapy, reflxology, and yoga.
