Tai Chi is Beneficial for Health
"Stress causes 70% to 90% of illness sending us to the doctor" based on a twenty year Kaiser Permanente study as reported by Dr. David Sobel of Kaiser.
“If you're looking for... [a] way to reduce stress, consider tai chi.... Tai Chi is sometimes described as ‘meditation in motion’ because it promotes serenity through gentle movements - connecting the mind and body. Originally developed in ancient China for self-defense, tai chi evolved into a graceful form of excercise that's now used for stress reduction and to help with a variety of other health conditions."
