Tai Chi

A gentle form of exercise also referred to as meditation in motion.

This mind-body practice, which originated in China, has been proven in treating or
preventing many health problems.

Tai Chi is a low-impact, slow-motion exercise routine that encourages a patient to
breathe deeply and focus their attention on their bodies.

The movements are circular and never forced, the muscles are relaxed rather than
tensed, the joints are not fully extended or bent and connective tissues are not
stretched. Tai chi can be adapted easily for anyone from seasoned athletes to
people with chronic pain.
