Building Strength with Tai Chi

The strength to be gained by practising Tai Chi has been recognised in an article published by the widely-read New York Times this week.

The author, Personal Health columnist Jane E. Brody, says she was surprised by Tai Chi’s effects on strength, “but good research — and there’s been a fair amount of it by now — doesn’t lie”.

She also notes that the benefits of Tai Chi are often quickly realised. “Significant improvements involving a host of different conditions can be achieved within 12 weeks of tai chi exercises done for an hour at a time twice a week,” Ms Brody writes.
